I just finished watching Slap Shot so I figured I would give you the songs from the movie. When you think about it, not only was the movie great, but so was the soundtrack. The cast was really good starting from the late Paul Newman to Strother Martin to Jennifer Warren to a young Lindsay Crouse and I didn’t realize that Swoozie Kurtz was also in the movie. Of course there’s the Hanson brothers as well. Great movie that still stands up today.
So using the movie’s soundtrack, I’ll give you the videos to the songs that were in the movie.
I’ll start with Elton John performing “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.” This is from a performance for the BBC in 1976.
I can’t believe I found something from NBC’s old Midnight Special program. Of course, it ran at 1 a.m., not at midnight, but that didn’t stop NBC from running it. This is Fleetwood Mac performing “Rhiannon.” The quality is very good.
Another classic song from Fleetwood Mac, “Say That You Love Me” performed live in 1977. I think we’ll have a Fleetwood Mac Musical Interlude down the road.
Probably the worst song of the bunch, but still not bad. Leo Sayer in a rare promotional video doing “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing.”
This was the hardest to find, but I did manage to get this one. It’s Sonny James doing “A Little Bit of Saskatoon.”
Last but certainly not least, the great Maxine Nightingale with the signature song, “Right Back Where We Started From.” This goes back to 1976! And you have scenes from the movie in this clip!
And those are all of the songs used in the movie. Back in the 1970′s, movie studios rarely released soundtracks. Every once in a while, a single would get released, but it was rare for an entire soundtrack to be pressed. Now, every movie has at least one soundtrack CD. But I digress.
Great to have the music of Slap Shot. I hope you enjoyed the videos.
