Speaking of well-known music from movies, Conde Nast Media Group the Producers Guild and the Entertainment Industry Foundation will team up for Movies Rock, a salute to music in movies, which will air December 7 on CBS. Similar to their Fashion Rocks event, "Movies Rock will be supplemented by a magazine component, also called Movies Rock, which will be packaged with 14 December Conde Nast titles. Publication will highlight stars, directors and musicians, and Bill Murray is the cover."
The following performances will take place:
- Beyonce will sing "Over the Rainbow"
- Carrie Underwood will perform "The Sound of Music"
- Fergie and Jennifer Hudson will pay tribute to Bond films with "Live and Let Die" and "Goldfinger"
- Mary J. Blige and John Legend will sing "As Time Goes By"
- Elton John "will honor music from animated movies"
- John Williams will perform a medley from his original scores, which include Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark
This sounds pretty cool, and I look forward to seeing this in December. However, there are other songs and scores I'd love to see performed as well, such as the theme music from The Godfather and Gone With the Wind, and perhaps "In Your Eyes" from Say Anything.
What about you? What iconic songs-from-movies would you include in a tribute concert?
