Top Five Standout Songs From Amazing Movies According to Brian Monarch
This Thursday (November 7th), comedian Brian Monarch is throwing down with some stand-up hilarity, opening up for headliner The Greg Wilson at the Irvine Improv. Though he mostly tells jokes for al living, Monarch also has some pretty big opinions when it comes to the music that is used in movies. Since we all can relate a song to a movie (or vice versa) and we've never EVER met anyone who hates music, we asked Brian to rattle off his "Top Five Songs Standout Songs From Amazing Movies."
Byron Ngalongalay I thought Matthew Broderick was actually singing this Beatle's hit!
5. Eye of The Tiger - Rocky III
Brian Monarch: Rocky III was and still is one of my all-time faves! I mean come on, the debut of Mr. T and Hulk Hogan in one awesome movie? What young boy isn't excited about this? I might have jizzed my pants if I was capable of jizzing back then. Or if I even knew what jizz was in 1982. They landed a big right hook right from the start with this movie when the opening sequence included "Eye of the Tiger." It gets you pumped for the rest of the film just like it was meant to. I was hooked immediately!
4. Don't You Forget About Me - The Breakfast Club
I'm not going to lie. I've only seen this movie once. I only watched it because somebody made me watch it. I liked it but honestly, I don't remember all that much about it. The one thing I do remember is that the best part for me is at the end where everything comes together and this song hits. It was definitely the song that made me feel something for this movie. The timing was perfect, and "Don't You Forget About Me" really did bring everything full circle. Without that ending and this song, I probably would have zero recollection of anything else from this film.
