Paramount/Universal

You know the songs. They’re part of the songbook of standards. You’ve heard them on every TV singing contest, belted out by a cut price Leona Lewis to the back of a chair while Sir Tom Jones mouths the words to show that he too recognises a famous classic. You’ve endured them slurringly stumbled over and shouted at every drunken karaoke session. Even if you think they’re terrible music (and with reasonable justification in some cases) you secretly know all the words. You’ve seen them used on so many inspirational or romantic montages that they’re more likely to be used in parodic moments nowadays than anything vaguely genuine, but have you seen the movies that they come from?

From the 50s crooner golden age through the big hair and big ballads of the 80s and on to anything starring Will Smith in »
