Don't we need to explain the connection?

I ended with Eton rifles by The Jam and then it went to something totally unrelated.

HIGNFY,

I think you and Francois were both composing your responses at the same time.

Elected - Alice Cooper.

The link is very tenuous.

Cher was married to Sonny Bono. He was elected to the US House of Representatives in the 90's.

Told you it was tenuous!

Alice's Resturant - Arlo Guthrie

Reason or connection - the song was about Alice Cooper (!)

The Ballad Of Davy Crockett - Fess Parker

Apparently Arlo Guthrie was given the middle name 'Davy' NOT in homage to the Gypsy Davy song but from the popularity of the Davy Crockett western series of the time.

Have to confess I had to look this song up on You Tube because it wasn't in my (for want of a better word) repertoire.

As soon as I heard the chorus, I remembered hearing it in Back to the Future when Marty goes into the coffee shop in 1955. I've always known it as "Daaave, Davy Crocket *mumble-mumble-mumble*" catchy, but pointless.

I'm going to go with about the only good song which has this title:

Hewey Lewis and the News - Power of Love

The connection being it was also in the BTTF soundtrack, also Hewey Lewis plays a cameo in the film. He's the suit who tells Marty he's just "too darn loud". Totally wooden.

I knew it was coming :.(

Knowing nothing about Frankie goes to Hollywood and my mind going blank on Hollywood - although I expect there's lots of references I could hit on there but all I can think of is Hollywood from the film Mannequin.

In fact, I'm going to stop there. I was going to go with Frank Skinner having a similar name, but that's just too easy.

So, anyway, the title song from the film Mannequin which had a character named Hollywood Montrose (hmmm, doesn't it just ZING!) was "Nothing's going to stop us now".

A quick Google tells me that was done by Jefferson Starship.

Sweet.

If you've noticed a theme developing with my musical knowledge being based on my film knowledge, that's because a lot of my general knowledge is based on the films and TV shows I watch.

I should've well made this a film thread, I'd have pwned you all! Well...with crappy 80/90s romcoms anyway.
