Starship Troopers [re: ]  

I am currently watching ST and noticed in the first 20 minutes of the film, in a ballroom scene, the song playing in the background is very similar to "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town". The music and vocal melody are the same but the lyrics are different. I did a search on TW for info and found nada but did found this bit from a soundtrack site:

Q: What is the song and artist heard in the last farwell dance when Dizzy is mad because she can't dance with Ricco? (from Chesterfield Cowboy in Michigan )
A: The name of the last song is "Have Not Been To Paradise" performed by Zoe Poledouris. I find myself answering my own question! (thanks to Chesterfield Cowboy , Michigan )

A: Zoe Poledouris is the eldest daughter of the composer Basil Poledouris who composed music for The Hunt For Red October. (thanks to Karloff , Australia )

A: The Zoe Poledouris track "Have Not Been to Paradise" is a remake of the David Bowie tune "I Have Not Been To Oxford Town". (thanks to Nagroth , Montana )

I kill bugs good new [re: ghostlove]  

I recall geeking out quite a bit over this when I saw it in the theater, 1997 being just about the peak of my Bowie obsession. I can't say which is worse: the fact that Verhoeven has only directed two movies since then, or the fact that I've seen neither of them.

i'm 2 much for these niggas and 3 much for these hos

Apparently the Nazi one is alright. NPH was pretty awesome in Starship Troopers if I remember rightly.

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre
