The Tempest

Northern / Modern / Soul / Motown / Stax / At The Movies

Recommended Posts

First time I ever heard It's A Man's Man's World by James Brown was in some weird space film where nothing much happened. Can't remember what it's called now as it was many years ago...............but I do remember the song absolutely blowing me away!!!

Also a song in an old movie which stars Lana Turner called Imitation of Life has Mahalia Jackson singing Trouble of The World..............brings a tear to my eye...............awesome song!!!

Only a TV movie but remember enjoying Lenny Henry / John Shea in Coast to Coast with a great Motown backing track. Not a big LH fan under normal circumstances but impressed by this. Always thought it wasn't available but just googled and found it for sale, at tv-memories.com , Presumably not an authorised copy as I don't think it's ever officially been available (was it BBc or Channel 4?)

Originally commisioned and screened on BBC2 under the Screen2 branding.Well worth finding if never seen,a feel-good production,IMHO.

Not sure if this fits with the thread as it's a track played from a soundtrack rather than on some offbeat film that has a surprise track in it.

No Thing On Me (Cocaine Song) sounds absolutely 'kin great played out and a guaranteed floor filler at Just Soul.

I'd be quite happy to hear out from the same soundtrack album both "Freddie's Dead" and "Pusherman"

I have a sneaky feeling "Freddies Dead" may have had a few Torch spins late '72.
