In the past, there have been many movies made based on the lyrics of a song. Off the top of my head I can think of The Gambler and Coward of the County by Kenny Rogers, Fancy by Reba McEntire, and The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia by Vicki Lawrence.
<br>
<br>So, I was thinking, if a movie were made of a Garth song, which would you like it to be?
<br>
<br>My choices are That Summer and That Old Wind.N

The Dance. This song has so many different levels of meaning, the movie would almost write itself. This song has changed my life and my way of thinking very much. :)

I hadn't thought of The Beaches of Cheyenne. I have always thought of Lane Frost when I hear that song. I know there have been movies about Lane (8 Seconds for one) but I don't think it is exactly like Beaches.N

All of the ones mentioned so far would make great movies!
<br>
<br>How about "I Don't Have To Wonder." There's a great love story behind that pain.

I agree with PJ for my first choice
<br>Beaches of Cheyanne would make a good movie.
<br>
<br>I then would pick That Summer or That ol Wind - they would make really STEAMY love stories.
<br>
<br>And even though The Dance is my favorite because of how it is so close to my life ..... I think it is far to meaningful and sentimental to alot of Garth fans, and Garth himself, to try and make it into a movie. It would be kind of like Garth says about videos. It puts 1 meaning to the song - the one you are watching.
<br>
<br>Just my opinions

Action wise...."The night i called the old man out" - it could work. And i think a movie could be made out "Alabama Clay" or "Cowboy Bill" maybe?

There was one song I heard when I was 5 years old it's not a Garth song. It was called "When It's Love" I thought it was a great song. But now my fav. Garth song would be When You Come Back To Me and Some Where Other Then The Night that would be my too. And "When It's Love" Too. :):PJoey N

I think "The Night Will Only Know" would be an awesome, suspense filled, action packed, murder-love story..

I think "Belleau Wood" was like a "Saving Pivite Ryan" Joey N

Belleau Wood was a poem, but not a movie as far as I know.N

Pilgrim

Belleau Wood was a poem as far as I know:)
<br>
<br>BUT!! A movie called A Midnight Clear is more or less the exact same story, just set in the Ardenner Forest during WWII:)
<br>
<br><a href=http://us.imdb.com/Title?0102443>A Midnight Clear</a>

I'd have to pick, "The Night Will Only Know", " The Beaches of Cheyenne". That's my 2 cents! :)
<br>
<br>BTW, what's CONVOY? Thanks!! :)

Convoy was a song that came out in the 70s about a bunch of truckers riding together (aka a Convoy). The chorus was sung but the rest of the song was like truckers talking to each other on the CB. Some might almost consider it a preview to rap songs as it was one of the earliest songs to use talking instead of all singing.N

Hey isn't the movie of "Ireland" called Braveheart? Just a thought...N

PJ
08-01-2000, 08:22 AM
Braveheart is based on some of the same history, but when I asked the question I was more referring to movies made exactly from the song lyrics and not necessarily movies that cover similar topics.N

My bad PJ. But that made me think. As I was watching Runaway Bride for the first time last night, there was this moment in the movie where I thought "She's Every Woman" would go perfectly right there.
<br>
<br>Sort an off-shoot from the original topic but has anyone else had a moment like this? What movie and what Garth song?<P>(This message has been edited by cybersadie)N

cybersadie, did you know a song on Wayne Kirkpartick's new album, 'The Maple Room', was slated to be in that movie? He's one of Chris Gaines writers and musicians. The song is called 'Hanging By a Thread', and it's absolutely gorgeous! Wayne said at least now Julia Roberts finally gets to hear it. She must have liked it. They should have used it, as it fits the movie so well.N
