Anonymous asked: I want to link your Ed Wood song in facebook, please tell me everything you want me to credit.

Hey there,

Thanks for letting me know about linking the Ed Wood song. There’s not much to credit really, if you want to note my blog where folks can find more music that’d be great. I’m planning on putting together an album of some of the tunes I’ve put together which I’ll link through the blog soon as well. 

Cheers and thank you!
Paul

Paul-El

—Hooper


Hello folks,

Made this ditty for Friday Night Film School quite some time ago but never got around to posting it here. It’s a short little number based on the film Hooper (1978) about an aging stuntman who happens to be the best in the biz. 

Enjoy!

Anonymous asked: I really like the songs here on the site. Is there a way I can obtain copies of them? I have tried iTunes but had no luck so I though I'd reach out to you. Thanks! Dan

Hi Dan,

Thanks for reaching out! I’m glad you like the tunes I’ve put together. I’m actually working on compiling some of the songs to release through iTunes and the like soon! I will keep you updated as to when they’re available. If there are certain songs you’d like that I don’t wind up releasing, let me know and I’ll get copies to you.

Cheers!
Paul

—I Want the Knife


Ello Ello,

Here be a little ditty I put together for Friday night Film School, based on the odd little Eddie Murphy adventure film The Golden Child (1986). The ditty is based off a little scene in the film wherein Eddie Murphy is seeking a mystical dagger to aid in his quest to find the golden child.
Here is a clip from the scene: I want the knife!
Cheers!

Cheers!

—Plan 9



Hello folks,
Friday Night Film School is back after a solid summer break. The most recent episode covers what is arguably Tim Burton’s best film Ed Wood (1994), based on the life of director Edward D. Wood, jr. Jonah Ray of the Nerdist podcast (which I am quite fond of) and the Jonah Raydio podcast (quite fond of) discusses what makes this film so dang wonderful.

You can listen or download the episode here
Episode 36: Ed Wood w/Jonah Ray

I put together a little ditty, highlighting Ed Wood’s optimism and determination to make Plan 9 from Outer Space his masterpiece. 

Cheers!

—There Can Be Only One



Howdy,
Here be the latest ditty for Friday Night Film School, based on Highlander (1986). Highlander is one of the silliest movies I’ve ever seen. The film is essentially about immortals who battle one another throughout all time. However these immortals have one weakness…decapitation. So the film is full of sequences of people trying to decapitate one another. 

Highlander also has an incredible soundtrack. The film was scored by Queen and is full of epic goodness. Queen’s song Who Wants to Live Forever is the highlight if you ask me. 

Cheers!

—I'm Going to Go Back There Someday


Howdy folks,

Here be the latest ditty for Friday Night Film School. This week’s podcast covers the huggably wonderful film The Muppet Movie (1979). I covered Gonzo’s musical turn I’m Going to Go Back There Someday, written by Ken Ascher and Paul Williams. 
Cheers!

Hey Class, 

So it looks like this week’s episode of Friday Night Film School will be delayed for a few days, thanks to a restriction on the website we use to host the episodes.

Be sure to subscribe to our ITunes channel so you can get the episode as soon as it posts!

In the meantime, to placate y’all, we’re posting Paul-El’s song a little early. A special pre-episode treat! 

The film is The Muppet Movie, so our own resident weirdo covered one of the film’s most touching songs.

Enjoy!

See you in a few days!

Paul-El

—Gigantic



Hello folks,

Here be a ditty I put together for Friday Night Film School based on Paul Thomas Anderson’s damn-fine-film Boogie Nights (1997). The ditty is just a cover of The Pixies song Giganticbecause it’s not often you get to sing about someone with big junk.
Cheers!

“Gigantic” by Paul-El

Inspired by our recent episode about Boogie Nights, Paul-El decided to cover a song that, while not even featured in the soundtrack, shares a very strong theme with the film: Gigantic, by The Pixies.
