Serious Hits Live.
I bought it years ago because it contained the song I picked out with my wife to have as our wedding waltz.
Song #13 on the album ironically enough looking back now.
Love on the Rocks ... A Fool's Journey?
This phenomena reminded me of a movie I snuck into the cinema to see when I was about 17 years old with my older brother's birth certificate, as you had to be at least 18 to get in.
That movie was A Clockwork Orange -"In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society's crime problem - but not all goes according to plan."
I hated A Clockwork Orange when I first saw it and came out of the cinema feeling repulsed and angry, because Kubrick wrecked a song that was a mild favourite of mine - Singing in the Rain.
I could never to this day hear the song Singing in the Rain without recalling that ugly scene from A Clockwork Orange .
Which was what Kubrick was aiming to do by using this famous much loved happy song, in my opinion, because the film is all about making the main character sick to the stomach when he hears his once favourite music, or even thinks about doing a violent act to others.
This is all because he is strapped into a chair and forced to watch violent scenes while his favourite music is played to the film while doctors pump drugs into him that makes him violently sick, so in the future when Alex hears his once favourite music, or thinks about doing a violent act he immediately becomes ill.
So Kubrick basically pulled the same trick on anybody in the audience who associated the song Singing in the Rain to being happy and care free.
Now when you heard it you would be hard pressed not thinking about that scene from A Clockwork Orange.
So it is with me when I hear A Goovy Kind of Love being played now, it just makes me feel ill.
Needless to say this CD will not be staying in my CD collection any longer.
