I've decided to write my 3 songs about:

  • Mola Ram, the heart-stealing high priest of the Pankot Thuggee (Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom)
  • One of my favourite movie-adaptations of all time - Empire Of The Sun
  • Spielberg Fashion - the Nikes, the Aviators, the baseball caps


  1. Nice and diverse choices. With the subjects on offer already this is shaping up to be a lorra lorra Spielberg fun! Empire Of The Sun in 30 seconds? Swit swoo!

  2. Haven't seen Temple of Doom, haven't seen Empire of the Sun, never even noticed Spielberg's style! Blowin' my mind Tim!

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Really? Temple of Doom is to Raiders, as Aliens is to Alien - a classic actioner! Mola Ram has been a legendary bad guy to the generation who saw the film as a kid.

    Empire of the Sun is one of my favourite books by one of my favourite authors (J.G. Ballard.) Spielberg's adaptation is almost perfect - a grueling and surreal rite-of-passage movie based on semi-autobiographical novel. The Academy created the best young actor award specifically for Christian Bale in the starring role. Its one of the best movies ever made, in my opinon!
