The Soundtracks That Made Movies Memorable

It wouldn’t be a Titanic movie without the theme song “My Heart Will Go On,” Dirty Dancing without the “Time of My Life,” and The Body Guard without Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” My point being that music is the heart and soul of every iconic movie. From Hollywood films to The Paramount stage here are three bands that help make the movies we love memorable.

The Psychedelic Furs are returning to Huntington on 4/12 for a night filled with high energy alternative rock music. They have been in the cult classic 80’s movie Pretty in Pink starring Molly Ringwald and James Spader. Their music has been featured in other popular movies such as The Wedding Singer, and Some Kind of Wonderful.

The Cult phenomenon known as The Dan Band will be lighting up the stage on 5/28. They caught America’s attention in the box-office smash hit Old School, performing his now-infamous rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart, as well as his appearance as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record breaking hit The Hangover. They’ve garnered rave reviews  from The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Variety, Rolling  Stone among others, and prompted Entertainment Weekly.

The Under the Sun Tour is back again to heat up the stage this summer on 7/29. The tour will feature returning bands such as Sugar Ray, and Smash Mouth along with the Blues Travelers and Uncle Kracker. Smash Mouth has performed in the film Rat Race starring Whoopi Goldberg, who will also be at The Paramount on 4/26, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Nick Schaffer. Their hit song All Star was also the theme song of animated picture Shrek. The Blues Travelers also have a couple of movie credits when they had a cameo in Kingpin and The Blues Brothers, who came to The Paramount last year.
