Audio Tape Moments in Film: Volume 1
Sing Street (2016)
Two great audio tape moments in this movie feature the two principals of the film; Cosmo, played by Ferdia Walsh and Raphina played by Lucy Bonyton. Both scenes are a perfect representation of how audio tape was the vehicle for getting new music in the hands of potential fans. And a way for the love stricken to convey their affection through music.
Cosmo hands Raphina a demo cassette of 'Riddle of The Model' to encourage her participation in the recording of the music video. Here was the resulting music video...
With Raphina going through some dark moments, Cosmo finds himself distanced from her. He pens a song for her and one evening drops the demo tape through her door. The resulting song is the beautiful 'On my way to find you'...
Sing Street is available on DVD and Blu-ray and a full soundtrack can also be purchased.
Back To the Future (1985)
If there was a movie moment for audio tape to show itself as the number one 'on the move' format for enjoying music at the time, it was part of the opening scenes from this film.
Marty played by Michael J Fox has just left the home of his friend Doc Brown and is heading for school. Walkman on, skateboard under his feet and hanging on to the back of a pick-up truck to aid his journey into school. Soak in this moment of utter 80's cool and snippet of the brilliant 'Power of Love' by Huey Lewis & the News...
All three of the Back to the Future films are available on DVD and Blu-ray. And you should still be able to find the soundtrack to purchase as well.
High Fidelity (2000)
For a lot of people the cassette will be remembered as the format that allowed music lovers to create their own Mix Tapes. In a lot of cases this Mix Tape would be shared with friends and loved one's. And in this scene from High Fidelity that's exactly what was going on...well that's what Jack Black was trying to achieve.
The 'Monday Morning' tape was supposed to be a 'conversation simulator' but it all goes horribly wrong...(note that some explicit language is used)
This movie can be purchased on DVD and Blu-ray. And the soundtrack, with an epic line-up of tracks, can still be purchased too.
