Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! The future is NOW!! Tomorrow (October 21, 2015) marks the day Marty McFly arrives from 1985! In honour of his arrival from the past, I’m tuning it back to classic songs from the Back to the Future movies.
“POWER OF LOVE” by Huey Lewis & The News
TRIVIA: The song appears early in Back to the Future as Marty McFly skateboards to school. Later in the film, McFly and his band play a hard rock version of the song for a Battle of the Bands audition (at which a character played by Huey Lewis himself is judging, and tells Marty’s group that they are “just too darn loud”), and later when Marty returns to his neighborhood. In the sequel, Back to the Future Part II, the 2015 version of Marty attempts to play the song on his guitar just after being fired, but ends up playing it very poorly due to his damaged hand from his 1985 accident with a Rolls-Royce. Finally, it can be briefly heard playing in the car where Needles and his buddies are driving when Needles challenges Marty to the fate-determining car race near the end of Back to the Future Part III.
“BACK IN TIME” by Huey Lewis & The News
“MR. SANDMAN” by Pat Ballard (performed by The Four Aces)
“JOHNNY B. GOODE” by Chuck Berry (performed by Mark Campbell as Marty McFly)
And if you haven’t watched the movies in a while, here are the 3 trailers to remind you just how great these films are.
