Songs and Films . Music and Movies

Films and music have always been firm friends. This concert seeks to uncover the many ways that songs and films have come together, from  the classic "musical"  (Singing in the rain) to songs written for a film (Bob Dylan´s  "Knocking on heavens door" for the film Pat Garret and Billy the Kid) to "Rock Operas" such as The Wall (Another brick in the wall - Pink Floyd). There are film names inspired by songs, (Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison), and  songs that are part of the movie product, package and trailer (James Bond movie theme songs - Billie Eilish - No time to die). There´s also time to see how  songs are now linking up with series ("I wanna do bad things with you" for the True Blood vampire series) and some romance with Everything I do, I do it for you by Bryan Adams for the Kevin Costner´s Robin Hood film. There´s also time to look at how both Elvis Presley and The Beatles linked up with film.

While this didactic concert is of interest to all learners of English it has been adapted to be accessible to CEF Basic A1-2 levels of English.
