I think I’ve put a lot of posts up about this movie over the years… but it’s an important movie to me. Definitely one of my all time favourites.
“The Pirate Movie” isn’t just an awesomely wonderful romp of a movie. This adaptation of “The Pirates of Penzance” is a quintessential 80s movie; the costumes, the treatment, the songs… OMGoodness the songs.
The blending of cartoon animation during “Pumpin’ Blowin'” is cute and let’s not forget its complete disregard for the fourth wall or staying true to a period piece with it’s star wars, Bo Derek, and other non-1800s references.
I LOVE this movie and listening to the songs makes me happy, which given my funk of the last little while I certainly need.
So this is the long way of saying, today, The Pirate Movie soundtrack is my jam… it’s getting me through the day and making me a happier person.
Here’s the final song of the movie, the Happy Ending we all wish for. It’s not really a spoiler when the movie is 35 years old! 🤣
