A Collection of Great Dance Songs (1981) with Around the World in 80 Days (1956)

Instructions:

Start the CD at the beginning when the Warner Brothers shield appears. Repeat the CD once for a total of two complete plays through all the songs.

Some things I noticed:

One of These Days

First song’s tempo fits with the black and white introduction.

“… little pieces” as snow falls from the sky.

Money

Marching band marches to the beat.

“Bank of England robbed” written on newspaper distributor.

Only the wealthy can belong to a fancy men’s club such as this.

Money is one of the central themes of this movie, and it is the only song that was redone for this compilation.

Man goes to the employment office.

Sheep

Shine on You Crazy Diamond

Peaceful music fits with calm scene.

Tour book that travel agent shows man is similar to the CD insert of different locations around the world.

“Blown on the steel breeze” as the two blow away in a hot air balloon.

“Nobody knows where you are” refers to the two gentlemen.

Wish You Were Here

“Two lost souls” refers to the two gentlemen.

Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)

Guitar riff while guitar is being strum on the screen.

Dancing perfectly synchronized to the song.

Song ends as the man finishes his dance.

One of These Days

Dancing once again perfectly synchronized to the song.

Money

“Get away” as he keeps the bull away.

“Get back” as he turns his back to the bull.

“Don’t give me any of that do goody good bullshit” during the scene with the bull.

A couple of times that “away” is sung sound like “olay,” which is shouted in the movie.

Sheep

The two gentlemen on the journey are symbolically the sheep. The official trying to arrest the wealthy gentleman represents danger and is symbolically the dog.

Shine on You Crazy Diamond

Women dance gracefully to the music.

“Threatened by shadows at night” as the sun sets.

“you painter, you piper, …” as it focuses on the servant of many former occupations.

Wish You Were Here

“Hot ashes for trees” as they take an elephant ride through the jungle.

Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)

Dancing once again goes with the music.

“Leave those kids alone” as the natives were preparing to kill the young princess.

Song ends after they rescue the princess.
