Music Mondays #MM on Twitter: “In the City” by Joe Walsh/The Eagles [from the Warriors]

Video


I wanted to go with more of an old school cult classic this week. So, the film is the 1979 cult favorite directed by Walter Hill, the Warriors, which was based on the 1965 novel by Sol Yurick of the same name. There have since been comic books and video games based on the film.

The song was originally written by  Barry de Vorzon and Joe Walsh and performed by Walsh for the soundtrack, specifically.   The Eagles, which Walsh was a part of, liked the song, and decided to record their own version for their album, the Long Run, which was released the same year.

They recorded a music video for it featuring a staged recording session, but I’m going with the scene from the film that featured the song, which is, the last scene of the film moving into the end credits.

Music Mondays #MM on Twitter: “The NeverEnding Story” by Limahl [from The NeverEnding Story]

Video


Had to go with an oldie, but goody this week. We’re kickin’ it old school with “the NeverEnding Story” from the NeverEnding Story by Limahl.  Had never heard of Limahl, but I know the song.  Always loved it as a child and the film, too, of course.  It’s so catchy and addictive.  Quite an ear worm this one.   Limahl was an English pop singer from the group Kajagoogoo.  That name I do remember, but I couldn’t name any of their songs.  Apparently, there was an English and a French version (“L’histoire sans fin”) of the song featuring a different female vocalist on each.
