PROG in movies

Post by yeshead 777 » Mon Apr 09, 2007 1:41 pm

There's an interesting thread on PE about Prog music in movie soundtracks. The Court of the Crimson king is featured in "Children of Men", and someone else brought up "Buffalo 66" which I haven't seen-that includes KC's "Moonchild", and Yes' HOTS and "Sweetness".Anyone know of any others. Of course there's alot of Yes,Tull,etc. in "Almost Famous".

Practically every Adam Sandler movie (at least that I've seen) has prog of some sort for at least one little section - Yes, Styx, etc.

I guess I haven't seen all of his, or noticed, what Yessongs have been in hi movies?

The only one I know of is Mr. Deeds - they have the little "doot doot doot" part from Seen All Good People.

You get more of that song in "Almost Famous"-its even on the soundtrack!And you can hear Roundabout, Tull-Teacher, and Black Sabbath in the background behind the stage at the first show where He meets the band.
