Musical Monday-Love on the Rocks

Musical Monday
Or, more to the point, what reminds you?

Does this remind anyone else of anything? Like a movie? Probably not. Because I'm older than most of you. But, it was only like the hot song from The Jazz Singer, 1980. The first movie I recall seeing in the theater. Yes, I know. Totally appropriate for a 5 year old. What can I say? I didn't take myself! :)
Don't forget to head over to Jori's place to see what's moving others today!

You just think you are older. I was already out of grad school with my doctorate by 1980. And yes i remember the release of The Jazz Singer. So so movie to my mind but the one good song stuck.

Robin said...

I don't remember how old you are but I'm pretty sure it's younger than me, and yup, I do remember the movie. Very well. (Though I remember liking Coming to America better than Love on the Rocks. Dear god now I really am dating myself...)

Kimber said...

I totally remember that one.

Diane said...

If you were 5 in 1980, then, um, we are contemporaries, sister. I vaguely remember this movie...but I LOVE Mr Diamond. Seriously, the man has SO many good songs, and has actually written a bunch more that others sang that were wildy successful. Great choice...and thanks for playing! =)

Robin said...

Oh, I totally saw that movie! Only I was 10 so I guess that makes me older than you... :) My parents were big fans so this soundtrack was played endlessly! ("Ain't no surprise, pour me a drink and I'll tell you some lies....)

Niel Diamond reminds me so much of my childhood and my Dad. It's amazing how many memories are brought through music...

Bonnie the Boss said...

That is all I can remember is the movie. I can't believe you went to see it! It happens all the time though.

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Oh, but see you are only a year older than me. I loved this movie! What can I say, Neil Diamond was awesome in my home. We always listened to this soundtrack Saturday cleaning@!

Rhonda said...

When I was 8 my dad took us to the drive-in to see "Silent Scream". (My screams were definitely NOT silent!)

That movie was followed closely by "Flesh Gordon", a game I went hom to play with my barbies. Brenda's mom never let me come over again.

Casey's trio said...

Okay..that's hilarious that you sat through this movie in the theater at 5 years old:)

Kelly Deneen said...

That's so funny!! Bambi was my first movie in a theater. hehe.

Heather said...

I love that song!!

mannequin said...

ew. You liked Neil Diamond?
Eeew...
Well, I've never seen the movie so wouldn't know but I cannot STAND that man.

Live.Love.Eat said...

I never did see this movie. Yikes. But I was 9 in 1980. You're a youngin :) I do love this song and I just loved him singing Sweet Caroline at the Grammy's Sunday.

Lolli said...

Hey! I left an award for you on my blog. Thanks for having such a fun site! :)

Life is Sweet

Kally said...

I must admit. I don't know the movie but I remember my Mom always listening to Neil Diamond records. (So I very well may have been carted along to this movie and I just don't remember it.)

The first movie I remember seeing in the theaters was ET (1982). They weren't really enforcing the fire code occupancy laws at that time. I remember people sitting in the aisles just to see the movie. (I was 4. See you can't say that you are OLD because that would make me old too :)

ParentingPink said...

My hubby guessed what movie this was from - so, no, you are not that old :-) LOL. Btw, Neil Diamond was the first concert my hubby took me to when we were dating - should have dumped him back then! LOL

Kathy said...

I remember it and I love to listen to Neil

Halftime Lessons said...

"First they say they want you, THEN, how they really need you...Suddenly you find you're out there, walking in the storm..."

If you don't love Neil, then you JUST DON'T GET IT. That's all I'm gonna say.

My mom took me to a PACKED opening night of the Jazz singer in London when I was in junior high.

FIVE years old??!!

WOW. How f**king old AM I??


Oh yeah. old enough to know that Neil is tha SHIZZY.


You may be picking up on the fact that I feel strongly about this. Wanna watch me go over the edge? Ask me about Barry.

;-)

And no, I'm STILL not gay.

Michelle said...

You were born in 1975? You are a baby! :) I remember and love that song. Never saw the Jazz singer. I was 13 in 1980 (well, depending on what side of June it come out) and my guess was that it was not appropriate for me either.

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

I LOVE Neil Diamond and loved The Jazz Singer. And yes, if you were born in 1975 you are YOUNG! I'm a 1969 baby (and I consider myself young, too!!) :)

I've told my husband a million times that when our kids are teenagers and are trying to sleep in late in the morning, I'm going to blast Neil Diamond and John Denver songs to get back at them for the sleep they are currently making me lose!!! lol!

K said...

The Jazz Singer. Oh yes! Saw it the afternoon before going to a Bar Mitzah party in the evening...
"They're Coming to America" is the one that evokes my memory...
:-)
