GUEST,Nicholas Waller Songs inspired by movies (47) RE: Songs inspired by movies 27 Jul 07


Al Stewart's "Year of the Cat" seems in part inspired by a certain category of movie, if not one specific one:

"On a morning from a Bogart movie
In a country where they turn back time
You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
Contemplating a crime"

His "Night Train to Munich" no doubt has some connection with the 1940 movie, though again probably more in terms of mood and film type rather than the storyline.

In fact, a lot of his songs have a certain filmic quality - "Roads to Moscow", for instance.
