Labyrinth: Sing Along with David Bowie!

Kevin Maher’s latest SciFI Department video reveals a phenomenon of which I was unaware that is apparently sweeping the nation: movie theater screenings of the 1986 David Bowie/Jennifer Connelly film Labyrinth complete with sing-along interaction. (The way Jim Henson meant for it to be experienced.)

Would it be totally lame if I admitted I have the soundtrack to Labyrinth? I thought it might…

5 Comments on Labyrinth: Sing Along with David Bowie!

  1. Actually, no, it’s not lame. Back in the 80s, when I discovered Bowie with “Let’s Dance,” Labyrinth was the only thing released that year (86, right?). Back in the day, Underground and Magic Dance were my favs wiht “As the World Falls Down” a nice ballad in Bowie’s upper range. Never really liked Chilly Down. Now, 25 years later, Underground’s still a good song. Not so much Magic Dance.

  2. Then we might be in good lame company, as I have it too.  In my pickup no less.  In fact it wasn’t that long ago that I pulled it out and listened to it for a few days.  I never got to see this on the big screen. Not sure that I’d want to do a sing-along, but it would be great to see it on the big screen.

    I agree with Scott, never really liked Chilly Down either.  That is the one part of the film too that I could have cut out and it would improve the movie.  Underground is a great song!  As is As the World Falls Down.

    And of course this post means that I’ll have these songs going through my head all day and will no doubt be pulling this out of the cd case and throwing it in the player on the way home tonight!

    Hey, I have it as well.

  4. Thin White Duke = WIN!  Bowie is in fact one of my favorite musicians.

     

  5. Add one more to the “lame” list here πŸ™‚  I saw that movie when it first came out, in the theater. Granted, there was no sing-along back then, but I can see why that would be fun.
