Starstruck Soundtrack - Monkey In Me

"And I don't like bananas"

1982: I only discovered the delightful Australian musical comedy Starstruck this year, but I was instantly obsessed by it. The soundtrack (by performers that are mostly on the amateur side) is so fun and weird that you've really got to rent (or buy) the movie and watch it. Of all the Australian films I've seen, this one makes me want to visit the country the most. Monkey In Me is one of the stranger tracks on the soundtrack, performed by the fantastic Jo Kennedy who's also the star of the movie. It was so difficult to pick a track to post here, though, because they're all so great (and most aren't as silly as this one either).

I worked at a repertory cinema back in the 80s, and we played this first run..... and no one came.

No one. Major flop.

However, all the employees l-o-v-e-d it. We used to hold 2am showings of it for ourselves and our friends --- no easy feat for the projectionist since we ran 20 minute reel-to-reel!

Once we even played it after hours back-to-back with FORBIDDEN ZONE.

God, those were the days........
