  • Not quite as Tim Burtony as we thought!
  • Why this movie owes a lot more to the Adam West Batman than everyone thinks!
  • The plot? Bat mythology? Not so important actually!
  • Jack Nicholson’s movie through and through!
  • Kim Basinger inexplicably eating popcorn!?

Harry Belafonte, Jump in the Line

Posted in Harry Belafonte, Youtube Favs on October 20th, 2011 by Willie

And we’re back!  I’m now halfway around the world coming to you live from Seoul, South Korea, and I’d thought to celebrate the occausion by posting one of my all time favorite movie music sequences ever!  Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice was one of the most bizarre movies of the 1980s, and all one has to do to get a taste of it is to watch the very end when he unleashes a ghost filled calypso dance party with Harry Belafotne’s immortal classic, “Jump in the Line,” blaring in all corners of the spirtual universe.  Belafonte, the legendary singer and civil rights activist, was co-musical director of the film alongside equally legendary Danny Elfman (Batman, The Simpsons, Oingo Boingo fame) and together they created a fantastically classic music landscape to one of the most insane movies ever.  Enjoy.
