Way Back 2022

April 12, 2022 - "Dreamin'" with Mamas, Papas and Bobby Womack plus Doors, Dino, Sonny, Cher, Sly, Family Stone in the Public Mix

Unlikely box office action tunes: "California Dreamin'" comes up twice - by The Mamas and the Papas and again by Bobby Womack, whose version was popular three years after M&P's '66 original - in the heist thriller Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The Doors' 1969 Soft Parade single "Tell All the People" has a moment in Morbius, the Marvel movie with Jared Leto as the title villain-turned-hero. Meanwhile, "Volare" by Dean Martin has become an all-ages Batman jam (oops, left out the The in Batman). On the home screen, Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" plays on a Freshpet.com commercial, while a promo for ABC's The Wonder Years is powered by Sly and the Family Stone's first great hit, "Dance to the Music."
