The Music - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Blast out "American Dream Plan B" on Kimmel Show

I got a dream I'm gonna fight 'til I get it

Tom and pals blast out a blistering live version of the mighty "American Dream Plan B",  the lead single to - and one of many highlights from -their recent wonderful Hypnotic Eye LP. Love the Back in Black riff at the start!

The album debuted at number one on the Billboard chart, with first-week sales of 131,000 copies in the United States.

The Music - Loli Phabay's "Hop hop hop" (AKA 'The red apple') )

A wonderful vibrant powerful clip from the mighty Russian/Moldovian film 'Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven' (Tabor Ukhodit V Nebo) which showcases the tremendous wild music on the OST!

Here's the beautiful and exuberant "Hop hop hop" from Loli Phabay!

AV Dolls - R2D2

The Music - Richard Hell & The Voidoids blast out "Blank Generation" (1979)

I was saying "let me out of here" before I was even born

Richard Hell  & The Voidoids blast out a version of "Blank Generation"  back in 1979.

This (of course!) was from a gig at CBGB´s.

This classic existentialist/nihilist punk anthem vividly paints a picture of Hell's life in the 70s, as a junkie poet who felt totally cut off - and isolated - from the rest of the world.

The song was the title track to Richard's seminal 1977 album - a collection AllMusic called "one of the most powerful [albums] to come from punk's first wave" and "groundbreaking punk rock that followed no one's template, and today it sounds just as fresh - and nearly as abrasive - as it did when it first hit the racks".

An album described as "a thrilling and improbably poignant listening experience" by BBC Music, on its 2007 re-issue.

Her soft mouth was the road to sin-smeared violence!

Classic noir from a young Stanley Kubrick. His second feature, made when he was only 26.

A film seen a billion times by Quentin Tarantino!
