After talking about 10 of our favourite Movie Road Trip Sing-A-Longs in the last post, we were left with a nagging feeling that there were too many others which we simply had to mention…so here are 10 more to enjoy.
1. “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” by the Sherman Brothers in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
You just gotta love this! Perhaps the original “Movie Road Trip Sing-A-Long”? This classic will endure for many generations to come.
2. “The Winner Takes It All” by ABBA in The Trip (2010)
Sometimes people forget that Steve Coogan has many more strings to his bow than just the wonderful Mr Partridge. Teamed up here with another great comedian Rob Brydon, they battle it out for king of the octaves to this ABBA classic.
3. “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Toploader in Four Lions (2010)
A great scene as the lads really get into this Toploader cover much to the displeasure of their front seat passenger.
4. “Mess Around” by Ray Charles in Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
John Candy is a truly missed comedy great. Here he fully immerses himself in this great Ray Charles tune with some fantastic air piano playing.
5. “Play That Funky Music” by Wild Cherry in Evolution (2001)
After a job well done, the guys celebrate by belting out this legendary funk song.
6. “Tempted” by Squeeze in Reality Bites (1994)
Winona Ryder and Janeane Garofalo bond to this Squeeze song.
7. “No Tears” by Scarface in Office Space (1999)
Comedy Gold as the wonderfully named character Michael Bolton gets lost in the lyrics of this Scarface song.
8. “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham in Zoolander (2001)
Not a lot of singing here but worth its inclusion just for the absurdness of it all.
9. “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight” by Dan Seals and John Ford Coley in The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)
Its Samuel L. Jackson singing, It just had to be included!
10. “Meet the Flintstones” by Hoyt Curtin in ‘Marge vs. the Monorail’ (The Simpsons – Season 4, Episode 12 1993)
We have gone for another excellent Simpsons scene here. Watch as Homer puts his own slant on the Flinstones theme.
