Okay, I need to jot down some of my thoughts on this soundtrack, so the songs will stop rattling around in my head.
I should fess up and say that the only parts of this movie I've seen are the opening credits and Travolta dancing on the lit up checkerboard, so unfortunately I don't have the movie playing as I listen to the songs. I'm not sure that matters too much, since the music is so evocative of a time and place.
As I drove down the road and recalled words from long ago and was able to sing along with one of the Bee Gees' harmonies, it dawned on me just how iconic and enduring this stuff is. I can't believe I forgot all about A Fifth of Beethoven
! I was laughing out loud thinking how that got played to death on the radio back in the day. I also desperately wished I could have been in the recording of that song playing this:vibraslap!
It made me so happy every time it was struck.
I don't know if I should be mad at More Than A Woman
(Is there something deficient/incomplete about being a woman?), but I just can't be. Putting aside the clunky word choice, this is an awesome song! I forgive it for it's put down because of words like this, "we can take forever just a minute at a time."
My favorite song is How Deep Is Your Love
. The Bee Gees really knock it out of the park with this one, with all there oohs and ahhs, in all their glory. They hold nothing back:I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You're my saviour when I fall
Alright, putting SNF
to bed, cause it's time to pull myself out of the 70's.
