LYRICS:

Garrett:
Ever since I was a kid, I loved movies
Sittin’ in front of the VCR with JuJu Bees
Indiana Jones, Kevin Bacon, I’m adorin’
Lea Thompson joinin’ Doc and Marty in the DeLorean

Jennifer:
We are two kids, just a product of the ’80s
Blockbusta’ rentin’ tapes & skippin’ out on the late fees
Internet came, clickbait lists for us to find
Netflix streamin’ services without a need to rewind!

Garrett:
So at the library I bought us a book for a buck.
Schneider’s curated list, it looked like we’re in luck.
Harvard doctor chooses movies h’thinks all should see.
If it didn’t make the cut, well then c’est la vie!

Jennifer:
There’s a lot on this list I never woulda seen!

Garrett:
Scorpio Rising, Flaming Creatures, what does it mean?

Jennifer:
Let’s view together, tell our story
t’whoever wants to read,

Garrett:
and maybe in ten years 1001 and we’ll succeed!

Chrous
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!

Garrett:
Kurosawa, Cameron, Spielberg, Fellini, Kuibrick!
Woody Allen, David Lynch, with Wilder, n’Hitchcock

Jennifer:
Sellers, Cagney, Nicholson, Hepburn, and Bogart!
Bette Davis, Bergman, Brando, Stanwick, and Stewart!

Garrett:
Like Nick & Nora we’ll investigate what makes our culture tick!
Learn more about past, present, n’future with every flick!

Jennifer:
With every film we’ll take a pic reflecting what we saw.
I apologize dear readers if the writing’s too bourgeois!

Chorus:
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!

Garrett:
We’ve had a lot of fun,
when this project’s done.
We’ll be glad you came along…
for one thousand and oooooooone!

Chrorus
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
Before we die, before we die, we got 1001!
