Monday movie meme

Molly at The Bumbles Blog hosts the Monday Movie Meme.

This week's movie topic is all about Music...
We've discussed Soundtracks and Musicals before. But we haven't covered movies ABOUT music. Which is surprising since Andy is aka Concert Boy (see #13 for a shot of him). So here are some of our favorites. Share on your blog movies with a music related theme and link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

Hairspray: You can't stop the beat as Tracy Turnblatt and her friends fight racism and sizeism to become Baltimore's dance sensations.

Rent: Roger wants to write just one song before he dies of AIDS. Meanwhile, his girlfriend is strung out on heroin, his best buddy sells out to mainstream media, and the rest of his friends have drama and insanity of their own, all in the year between two Christmases.

The Muppets Take Manhattan: College buddies take their musical to Manhattan, determined to perform on Broadway. The movie that spawned The Muppet Babies animated tv series.

The Sound of Music: An Austrian nun-turned-nanny teaches seven children to sing, marries their father and escapes the Nazis during a folk festival.

Check out all the movies I forgot or didn't even know about by visiting the participants at the Bumbles Blog.


  1. oh I liked Hair-spray- I'd forgotten that one. Also I was a bit confused and went with soundtracks. Maybe I'll have to rethink it. thanks for stopping by.

  2. Yay, I've actually seen all of these. I love that you listed a Muppets movie and think it interesting how almost everyone included The Sound of Music! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Oh Hairspray was such a fun movie! Excellent choice.
