Continuing the theme of selecting my favourite songs from popular movies, this month I have chosen the popular, romantic track (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley (The Righteous Brothers) and Jennifer Warnes which featured in the movie Dirty Dancing.
Dirty Dancing was a film that had a real craze attached to it thanks to its charming and good looking actor/dancer Patrick Swayze, and this song is truly a cult favourite of not just mine but a lot of people who have enjoyed the film.
This CD was the first ever movie soundtrack that I listened to on repeat and has some other great songs on it too (Hungry Eyes being one of them) but there is something about this duet which always struck a chord with me, and even does today whenever I listen to it. The infectious saxophone parts always make me feel happy and the sultry vocals of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes have truly stood the test of time. I guess it is alsk self explanatory why we don’t get to hear songs like these attached to movies these days as the field of romance has vastly changed.
I hope you all enjoy this month’s favourite golden oldie song. Comment with one of your favourite songs from a movie soundtrack below.
