Video Vault II

September 14, 2007

These videos might have been used already, but I can’t think of any movie that has used them yet.  If you can think of their use in film, let me know.

The Grass Roots – "Let’s Live for Today"

This is easily one of my all-time favorite songs.  Note the guitarist standing next to the drummer.  His name is Creed Bratton, and he now stars on the U.S. version of The Office.

Jim Croce – "Time in a Bottle"

This song is just great.

John Denver & Mama Cass – "Leaving on a Jet Plane"

This is a great performance by two awesome performers on The Midnight Special.  I’m not sure if there is a better mix of these two singing this song, but I wish there was.

Apocalyptica – "Bittersweet"

This version has the guest vocalists, but the instrumental version could also easily be used for a soundtrack, or better yet, use both versions at different times in the film.

Phil Collins – "In the Air Tonight"

This is a great mood song.

Billy Joel – "Lullabye – Goodnight, My Angel"

This is probably my favorite Billy Joel song.

John Lennon – "Working Class Hero"

This is an excellent tribute video, and the song would work great in film.

    I found this vid on youtube awhile back. This is the vid of Underworld put to the music of Apocalyptica’s – Hope Vol. 2. I like it except for the part where Selene chops Victor’s head in half. That’s stupid.

    I’ve never seen Underworld, and that link didn’t work for me.

    Oh, sorry. Here it is. Underworld is a good vampire movie but not nearly as good as Queen of the Damned. I finally got to see that! WOOT! :D

    man, that John Lennon song is awesome! Can you find me a copy of it sometime? I’d like to learn to play it…minus the profanity of course. But what a great song as only J. Lennon could do. I’ve never heard it before now. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, that Billy Joel is quite an amazing talent, eh?! I’ve never heard that one either. I have his greatest hits (or used to…I don’t remember seeing it in my cd collection, now that I think about it!!! grrr – that makes me mad!), and know that one isn’t on there. But a great song…kinda sad, eh? And of course, very sweet and poignant too. Good stuff, Fan!

    The Billy Joel song was on his Greatest Hits Volume III. I believe you have his two disc Greatest Hits Volume I and II.

    The John Lennon song is indeed awesome. I can hook you up some time. Ozzy did a cover of it recently (as he’s a huge Beatles fan) and so did Green Day. Neither version is much different than the original, and neither improves on it in any way.
