Big Fran's Baby
« on: Nov 13, 2008, 07:44 PM »
I have a tune stuck in my head that will not go away... and I don't want it to.

About 15 years ago Clint Eastwood composed "Big Fran's Baby", I think for a movie staring him and Kevin Costner. The movie, A Perfect World, takes place in the early 60s.

You can listen to the song (played by No Worry) by clicking this link. You must have flash enabled for it to work. Songza.com is a legal and safe site.

I dare you to not instantly fall in love with the beautiful instrumentation.

Scuzzy; I'll bet you can't play it just once

You're going to have to provide a link. If the song exists then Songza will likely find it. When I enter "The Bicycles of Paris" I didn't get an exact match.

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I can think of various way of converting the song for inclusion here, but I'm concerned that doing so could be a copyright violation. I dunno, since people do it at YouTube all the time. Insert hint here

Unlike YouTube, we don't have an army of attorneys to protect our duffle bags from massive law suits.

That's a very nice tune. It has a hop-along-cassidy type feel, with mellow tones and a hint of merlot.

Scuzzy; I felt like if I was back in the 60s

EDIT: It is certainly an enjoyable tune. Thanks for sharing it.
