20 Album Challenge – Day 19

The 20 Day Album challenge continues. Today’s pick is Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Soundtrack.

bill and ted

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure came out at the same time that I left for Navy boot camp. So, I was unaware of the film. Later on in the year, while stationed in Oakland, California, I had 2 roommates. Every once in a while, they would say or do something, then say “Excellent!” and play air guitar. After a while, I said “What is that? Am I missing something?” They said, “Haven’t you seen Bill and Ted?” I hadn’t. The movie had just come out on video, so we rented it, and I was floored. It quickly became one of my favorite movies. And the music was incredible, which also helped the movie. I loved every song, and there was not a big name artist on the soundtrack. Extreme would go on to be the biggest name on there, but it wasn’t until well after the movie came out.
Play With Me” by Extreme blew me away, especially that guitar! And the scene in the movie, featuring that song, was an awesome and funny montage.

My favorite songs from the soundtrack are “Breakaway” by Big Pig, and “Walk Away” by Bricklin.

I am curious to see what Bill and Ted 3 has in store for us this year!

In the meantime, you can check out the soundtrack on Spotify:

Monique Junot: I figured if we had nothing to say to each other he would get bored; go away. But instead he uses it as an excuse to put his testicles all over me.

Lane Myer: Excuse me?

Monique Junot: You know, like octopus? Testicles?

Lane Myer: Ohhhh. Tentacles. N-T. Tentacles; big Difference.
