It was a doco on the 100 greatest songs from the movies. I was too tired to stay for the end but I had to look up the list before heading off to bed and when I read it I was outraged!
How on earth could ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ come in at number 1 and leave the greatest, most sublime piece of movie musical magic languishing at number 3. Yes, ‘Singin In The Rain’ came in third place behind ‘As Time Goes By’.
I demand a recount and this travesty of just to be rectified immediately. Every one knows you have to have rain before you can have a rainbow.
And speaking of rain, don’t even get me started on ‘Purple Rain’ not being in the list.
