Selections from "The Wedding Singer" Soundtrack, Vol. 1 (The
Police, Billy Idol, The Smiths, New Order)
Brian and Sarah are back once again to discuss some classic songs from the 80s. But this time instead of discussing an album's worth of songs by a single artist or group, they've chosen several songs from a movie soundtrack. The movie is "The Wedding Singer," which was released in 1998, but takes place in 1985. This movie has two soundtracks associated with it, and in this episode, songs from Volume 1 are discussed.
"The Wedding Singer" holds a special place in the hearts of our hosts, not just because it's set in the 80s, but because it came out mere months before their own wedding. Brian and Sarah spend a few minutes discussing the time period of the movie's release and some of their memories associated with it.
Since many of the songs on this soundtrack have either been discussed in a prior episode or will likely be discussed in a future episode, our hosts choose songs that they probably wouldn't get to talk about otherwise. Brian and Sarah select two songs each and explain where in the movie the songs can be heard. They also go over the regular information like release dates, chart position, music, lyrics, and videos. And although this episode does naturally lend itself to more of a movie discussion than most of the others, Brian starts talking about a James Bond movie rather than "The Wedding Singer." Sarah once again has to get him back on track. Also in this episode, Brian and Sarah both admit their teenage fear of Billy Idol; Brian shares conflicting stories from band members about the making of a song, and yet another soda commercial is discussed!
