Someone famous once said, “The sincerest form of flattery is thievery.”
I have a sneaking suspicion that my quote may be incorrect, but it sounds okay to me: I thieved Savannah’s idea and her time-trip back to some of her favorite movie music.
Maybe we should make this a meme and I won’t feel like such a scoundrel.
This clip is from The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) and Michelle Pfeiffer does her own singing. One wag on YouTube commented, “I didn’t know you could make love to a piano.”
I’m not ashamed to admit that Grease (1978) is one of my all-time favorite movies. Stockard Channing, at 33, played Betty Rizzo (Rizz), the girl “with a reputation.” A pro from Broadway, she does her own singing of this bittersweet song.
Yup, that’s Johnny Depp in Cry-Baby (1990), a film by John Waters that is a cross between Grease and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The girl is Amy Locane. I have no idea if they did their own singing or lip-synced, but I love the bluesy song nevertheless.
