Casablanca/PYE 1979


Johhny Coolrock's one and only song was released in 1979 sandwiched into a UK issue LP soundtrack for the movie Roller Boogie.
From what I can tell the rest of the soundtrack is pretty awful ( the other side of the 45 is a really bad disco song by the group Cheeks and Cher is involved in at least one of the other tracks.) Thankfully this standout song was also released on 45...and as summer is winding down, I ask myself... where was Johnnie Coolrock two months ago? This is the perfect summertime song and I just found out about it! It's Way better than anything from the Pinball Summer soundtrack and if Mr. Coolrock would have been allowed to write the entire LP who knows what would have happened..

  1. Dude, that Cher song rules; I don't care what you say. But then again I kinda like the soundtrack to Xanadu. Johnnie Coolrock is the star though for sure. Needs to be a comp. KILLED BY SOUNDTRACKS
