As I was eating breakfast this morning I watched "Can't Stop the Music" movie about the Village People. I wasn't sure whether I should laugh or upchuck. Laughing But I did get to do the YMCA dance.

Then I got to thinking of all the other movies/tv programs that centered around songs and or groups. Meaning the song came first and then they made the movie. Or, they created a group for the tv/movie production. I could come up with "You Light Up My Life" (Debbie Boone) and the Monkeys. Does anyone know of any others out there?

I can think of several. At least 5 Beatles songs were turned into movies [Hard Day's Night, Help, Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour & Let It Be]. Also the Rolling Stones song "Gimme Shelter" from 1969 provided the title for their documentary-style movie released the following year.

EDIT: I'd also be fairly sure that quite a few Elvis Presley songs spawned movies with the same title.

Convoy (1978), one of my guilty pleasures.

IMDb lists some 80+ movies with the keywords "based on song".

Alice's Restaurant.

Quote:
This song is called Alice's Restaurant, and it's about Alice, and the
restaurant, but Alice's Restaurant is not the name of the restaurant,
that's just the name of the song, and that's why I called the song Alice's
Restaurant.

- Arlo Guthrie

Oh...

Im amazed no one has yet mentioned the recent hit "Across The Universe"... a musical filled with songs from The Beatles (about 40 songs), and the name of the movie is also the name of one of their songs.

^^^ I loved ATU before it was hip! I remember Lennon once groused about George Martin (RIP Sad ) having layered in a female choral backup on the final version. Or, was that "The Long and Winding Road"? Anyway, those were the only 2 Beatles tunes with female voice tracks.
