AOL’s 77 Most Unforgettable Songs

Comments Off


Things have been quiet, but we have some tidbits for you today. AOL counts down their “77 Most Unforgettable Movie Songs”. Cameron’s films did extremely well with Say Anything… and Almost Famous both landing in the Top 6! Here’s what they said:

6. Peter Gabriel – “In Your Eyes” – Say Anything… (1989)

You have to respect a man who’s willing to suffer for love — and given how long he held that boombox over his head, John Cusack’s arms must have been killing him. He might have gotten the girl quicker if he’d played ‘Sledgehammer,’ though. — JP

3. Elton John – “Tiny Dancer” – Almost Famous (2000)

Give it up to Cameron Crow for making ‘Tiny Dancer’ the new ‘100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.’ ‘Almost Famous’ was an open love letter to rock ‘n’ roll, and this scene was the little heart over the “i.” — MTC

I’m very pleased to introduce a new feature to the site today. A series of essays discussing the impact of Cameron’s films and what they mean to you, the readers. These will all be your submissions, so I encourage you to share your thoughts. First up, site reader Dan Pulliam’s ode to “In Your Eyes” and Say Anything… This is a very personal and heartfelt story and I appreciate Dan’s contribution to the site.

“In Your Eyes” by Dan Pulliam

“Accepting all I’ve done and said, I want to stand and stare again ’til there’s nothing left out.  Oh, it remains there in your eyes.  Whatever comes and goes, I will hear your silent call.  And I will touch this tender wall ’til I know I’m home again.”

For the uninitiated, that’s how Peter Gabriel’s ‘In Your Eyes’ was always meant to start.  Ironically, those words get right to the heart of the song in ways that the released version never did.  And with that in mind, I’ve decided to take the bull by the metaphorical horns with this first article and get right to the heart of Crowe.  To go beyond the face value of a more conventional critique and look at what make Crowe’s films so great: individual moments.  In what just may be the most ‘almost famous’ of these, I’m starting today with the boombox scene.
