4 out 5. Not bad.

The only ones I've seen are

1) The cheesy wrestling movie Vision Quest (back in high school). I seem to recall Madonna sang "Crazy For You" in it, but that was 20+ years ago; and

2) Body Double. I think that had "Relax" in it by Frankie Goes To Hollywood?

I got nothin' else.

First of all, screw backwards typing, too much thinking, besides, a Woot! Off is in progress, so that's occupying much of my internet time.

Second of all

1)Against All Odds (only figured this out through process of elimination, if you want to make this more challenging, you should have more matches than matchees)
2)Frankie Goes To Hollywood
3)Yardbirds (only film on the list old enough for the Yardbirds to be in it, assuming you don't mean the DePalma version)
4)Bauhaus (remember when Sarandon was hot? Funny thing is, the much older Deneuve, still is pretty hot, but Susan, not so much)
5) 5,6,7,8's
6)Digital Underground (my girlfriend at the time was a PA on that film, even she thought it was a muddled piece of crap, but she had a blast being a gopher on the set)
7)Circle Jerks (Repo Man is still one of the best films about LA ever made, and the Jerks were one of the better local punk bands at that time, too bad Alex Cox never really recaptured the spirit of that film ever again (Sid and Nancy came close, but that was a million years ago, also))
8)Vanilla Ice (two great tastes that go great together?)

For now, making them harder doesn't seem necessary. I'd rather have them easy to medium to play along with and get a few more people guessing.

BY process of elimination, I think xwl meant to write Kid Creole and the Coconuts for #1, I'll give him the full 9 points.

justkim has 4, plus 2 for the first reply.

pastor_jeff gets 2; though I should subtract a point for calling Vision Quest cheesy and another point for vacationing on the Gulf instead of a real beach with real waves. But that would be mean, so I won't
