I'm already accepting your congratulations for the next one, which I had a hand in placing on the list and you didn't.

#46: A Kiss At the End of the Rainbow
30 Points (On 2 of 19 lists)
Highest Placement: #10 by George Harrison

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Y6VYbYH9zCg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/Y6VYbYH9zCg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

 
Featured In: A Mighty Wind

Composers: Michael McKean & Annette O'Toole

Performers: Eugene Levy & Catherine O'Hara

 
Description:
"A Kiss At the End of the Rainbow" was written for and performed in the 2003 Christopher Guest mockumentary, A Mighty Wind, a send-up of a folk music reunion concert in which three folk bands must reunite for a television performance for the first time in decades.

In the film, Mitch Cohen (Eugene Levy) and Mickey Crabbe (Catherine O'Hara) are a romantic duo that released seven albums together until their traumatic break-up decades earlier. Their most famous song is "A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow," during which the pair would actually kiss on stage. Mitch played the guitar and Mickey played the autoharp.

"A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow" was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song, and was performed at the 76th Academy Awards by Levy and O'Hara (in character). The title song won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media at the 46th Grammy Awards.

In an interview about the film, Annette O'Toole claimed that many of the songs for A Mighty Wind were written when plane groundings in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks meant she and husband Michael McKean had to drive from their home in Los Angeles to Vancouver, where O'Toole's television series Smallville was being filmed.

If I were to put one of the A Might Wind songs, I would have probably done Old Joe's Place.  Ea A Oe's.

OH NO!  Not only did I forget this movie, but I forgot some other ones from mockumentaries that I had initially planned and forgot about.  So... ARRRGGGHHH.  Nice to see it on the list though.

Was hoping to find a clip of the Folksmen trying to explain Skeletons of Quinto before they rush off stage.

There there Anais. There are SO many great show tunes out there. Besides, I think most of us have regrets about most of the LOC's we've submitted. I am still hitting myself over not listing Alison Brie on the Top 50 Crushes list... regret not putting MST3K the movie on 50 best films of the 90's list... the list goes on and on! Life is too short for regrets! Jeez... I hope I don't regret saying that.

I picked Time Warp for mine, but gotta say I still enjoy Sweet Travsestite more.

My favorite from RHPS is probably Science Fiction Double Feature. :)

#47: Time Warp
29 Points (On 2 of 19 lists)

Just missed my list, since I tried to only include one song per film.  And something else from Rocky Horror did make my list.

Here's a cool cover version of Time Warp:

You guys have no idea how many moments of panic I keep having over thinking I've forgotten someone's list or miscalculated.

Guess what I forgot?


FFFFFFUUUUUUU...


I was actually really sweating it out with "A Kiss At the End of the Rainbow". I very much wanted it to make the list but knew it only had two entries -- mine and George Harrison's. It was a relief to see it squeak in there.

Yes, that's what she said.

Who is this sex obsessed woman that everyone seems to know!  I feel like I'm out of the loop here.
