Next Week: VOTE NOW

Next week is the Oscars, so let's award our own, um, award, for weird movie song for next week's MP3 Monday! Ladies and Gentlemen, the nominees are:

*"If You Love Me Baby Tell Me Loud" - From Mel Brooks' High Anxiety (1977). This is a hilarious "rock" song- well, what old squares thought loud, noxious rock music sounded like.

*"Beware The Blob" - The 1958 horror movie The Blob starts off on the wrong foot, with a bouncy, catchy title song composed by... Burt Bacharach?!

*"Skeet Surfing" - From Top Secret! (1984), Val Kilmer's first starring role is 50s singer Nick Rivers in this send-up of Elvis movies, spy films, war films, Blue Lagoon, and hell, everything. Here Nick sings about the hot fad of shooting skeet WHILE surfing in this Beach Boys parody.

I vote for "Beware the Blob." You can't beat a lounge ode to an amorphous killer.
