The anticipation to hear the Sweet blast their high-energy, crowd favorite hit “Ballroom Blitz” at Jack’s Fifth Show is killing us, so until September 18th finally rolls around, we really need something to hold us over.
So what’s the next best thing to hearing “Blitz” live? Watching it reimagined in epic battles scenes from our favorite action movies, of course. If you though Neo was one bad-ass mofo before, just wait to see his kung-fu prowess to the tune of the [lastfm]Sweet[/lastfm].
The original scenes in The Matrix trilogy are a little too serious and melodramatic, but with the help of the classic rock tune “Ballroom Blitz” the cutting edge battle scenes are infused with the high energy vigor of the [lastfm]Sweet[/lastfm].
The graphic bloodbath combats in Kill Bill have never seemed so action packed until put to the fervor of “Blitz.” Maybe if we listen to this song over and over, we’ll adopt some of these kung-fu moves. We can only hope.
Anime is known for its seizure-inducing battle scenes, but the sensory overload in the anime cartoon Furi Curi — Fooly Cooly for us in the States — is a little more bearable when we can rock out to the [lastfm]Sweet[/lastfm]. Besides, we have no idea what’s even going on in this cartoon, so we might as well rock some air guitar and high kicks in our living room.
