Acoustic Sunrise Sunday February 18, 2018


This Sunday we tie in KFOG’s John Hughes weekend with “Music from the Movies” featuring soundtracks and songs that have appeared in memorable movies.
Listen for: The Shins and Iron & Wine from Garden State, a soundtrack that turned a lot of people onto these bands for the first time, a KFOG Archives version of the Donnie Darko version of “Mad World,” by Gary Jules (the guy who wrote it), Suzanne Vega from Pretty in Pink (a John Hughes film), the Counting Crows version of “The Ghost in You” from Clueless, Elliott Smith’s “Miss Misery” from Goodwill Hunting, Dream Academy’s orchestral version of the Smiths’ “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (also a John Hughes), Jack Johnson doing the White Stripes song from Curious George, and a Willie Nelson song written for Brokeback Mountain that was considered too whimsical for the tone of the movie, “Cowboys are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other.”

I’ll let you know how to apply for passes to see Glen Hansard, famous for his music in the film Once. The Irish singer-songwriter will play the Fox March 12th.
