Labyrinth and Amadeus.
The moment I thought up this post I then realized Jareth (David Bowie) and Amadeus have the same hair. Is this pure coincidence? Or is it my 80's love of glam-rock hair bands? Or is it just 80's music, hair, and movies all together?
I remember the first time I saw both of these movies, and both times were at school.
Oh my god. I even remember one year my older sister bought me, as a birthday present, the soundtrack to the movie on record, not tape, and CD's were non-existent back then. Sweet round vinyl. Oh she did copy it onto a tape for me so that I could listen to it. I was soooo happy to have it, but back then I didn't know what a soundtrack was. So initially I was sooo mad when the script of the movie didn't play during the precise spot in the music. What? Why isn't Sarah reciting her script?
"Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered.
I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city,
to take back the child that you have stolen.
For my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom is as great."
Later realizing a soundtrack is just the music to the movie. Duh!!
Jareth and David Bowie....I do love you. My daughter has already accepted you as my boyfriend, but my son still thinks you're a witch.
"I ask for so little.
Just love me.
Do as I say,
and I will be your slave."
I remember the guys in class kinda giggling when Contanza first appears in a scene with her bosom practically popping out of her lovely gown. Mr. Lopez kinda grumbles a "settle down" to the class. Ah what memories.
I love the look and the feel of this movie, and definitely the laugh of Woofie. Just the thought of him laughing makes me smile.
