The Gary Jules cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" is of course from the soundtrack for Donnie Darko, which easily earns a place in my all-time Top Five List of Movies With Giant Rabbits.

    “Macross City,” Robotech Perfect Soundtrack
    “Mad Russian’s Christmas,” Trans-Siberian Orchestra

  • QuantumLobster

    I can’t believe it, but I don’t have any music on my iPod in that range… :(
    I do have an audiobook of E.M. Forster’s “The Machine Stops”, if that counts.

    Let’s see…there’s Harvey, Night of the Lepus…what else? Do Bugs Bunny and Roger Rabbit count as giant rabbits? Does Totoro?

  • http://abelstales.blogspot.com damnedyankee

    Well, Bugs and Roger are both quite large for rabbits, but since we’re talking feature films and the only example of that for Bugs is the drecktacular Space Jam, I gotta go with Roger.

  • Emcee

    Only two here, and this goes to show my musical biases:
    “Madame Guillotine” – The Scarlet Pimpernel (Original Cast)
    “Madame Rose’s Toreadorables” – Gypsy (2008 Revival Cast)
    What? No Mack the Knife on mine? Will have to get it loaded on…is my signature karaoke song!

    A short and not very distinguished list; a lot of these songs aren’t that good and the ones that are probably aren’t the sort Fred would care for. No recommendations this week.

    So I’m kinda new to the blog, is there a point to this style of post besides comparing music taste?

    Back when they first began, Fred said he was looking to identify any gaps in his music collection. That’s why I try to make it a point to suggest which song on my list would probably most appeal to him, based upon his revealed preferences. (Also, why I never list anything that’s already on Fred’s list — no gap to fill in that case.) A few artists I’ve recommended show up on Fred’s later list, so I like to think I’ve done a little bit to pay back our host.

  • cminus

    To clarify, here’s how Fred described the point of these posts:

    (The idea here, generally, is an alphabetical list of songs from my iTunes collection. Feel free to compare and contrast with your own list from the same alphabetical range and to let me know, in comments, what’s missing. The list below, for example, does not include “Alone,” by Heart. You might point out this omission, thus potentially prompting an interesting discussion of the relative merits and demerits of early vs. later Heart, possibly getting someone who’s heard it to chime in to let us know whether or not the new Ann Wilson collection of protest songs is any good. That sort of thing.)

    “Machine Ballerina” – Suzanne Vega
    “Machine Gun” – Manu Chao
    “Macho Man” – Village People
    “Mack The Knife” – Ella Fitzgerald
    The Ella version of “Mack the Knife” is one of my favorites of her live performances: she forgets some of the words, but still proceeds to do an amazing Louis Armstrong style scat AND improvise new words about her not being able to remember the words.
    And am I the only one admitting to have the Village People in my collection?

    Aha! Sandbagged by a different title! I also have Gerald Price singing what Time-Life’s Broadway compilation calls “The Ballad of Mack the Knife.”

    cminus: “am I the only one admitting to have the Village People in my collection?
    No, but since anyone who knows me knows that I have horrid taste in music (i.e., I collect songs that make me laugh, remind me of being a teenager, make me think of characters in my stories, or have some faint potential to make me get off my butt and exercise) that isn’t saying much.
    Never cared for “Macho Man”, though. I do have “YMCA” and “In the Navy”, tho’ (for all the reasons above)
    I showed my son the video for the last a few months ago. I don’t think he was more awestruck by the absolute insanity of his parents’ generations since… I showed him the video for “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”

  • Schrodingers Duck

    Just the two in this range – oddly enough, I have more audiobooks and soundtracks in this range than actual songs:
    Machines – Biffy Clyro
    Made Up Love Song #43 – Guillemots
    Both are okay, but not especially recommended. Normally I love Biffy, but “Machines” is just a bit too sappy.

    Top five movies about giant rabbits?
    Well, North has Bruce Willis in a rabbit costume, but that’s one of the worst movies I can think of, so let’s hope there are at least five other movies with giant rabbits in them so it doesn’t get on the list by default.
    Donnie Darko, Harvey, Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and the inestimable Night of the Lepus.
    OK, I feel better.

    It was Victoria who said that, man, not me. I don’t have the Village People in my collection, being more of a Rocky Horror sort.

    Made to Heal is from Spiritual Machines, the last Our Lady Peace album I really liked — and not nearly as much as I liked the ones that came before. I am very much dating the time and place where I came of age when I say that I don’t think they’ve ever topped Naveed. ;-)
