Did the song “Cousin Dupree” inspire the movie “You, Me and Dupree”? Steely Dan thinks so.
Today’s trivia question: name song titles subsequently used as movie titles. Should we include bio-pics (Coal Miner’s Daughter, Walk The Line)? Movies inspired by songs (Ode to Billy Joe)?
We’ll go first:
Peggy Sue Got Married
The answers pour in:
Sweet Dreams
Great Balls of Fire
Round Midnight
La Bamba
What’s Love Got To With It
(the thought occurs – someone like Scorcese or Paul Thomas Anderson whould do a BioPic of Ornette Coleman)
Somehow based on the song:
Rock n’ Roll High School
Nine To Five
Not Related to the song:
Stand By Me
Pretty In Pink
Sixteen Candles
Helter Skelter
Amazing Grace
Dazed and Confused
Beatles movies
Hard Day’s Night
