1987 Bruce Willis and The Temptations- “Under The Boardwalk”

The movie features an absolutely CRAZY cast, including names like Paul Stanley, Phil Collins, Ringo Starr, Michael J. Fox, and the Bee Gees. The film also  includes a really great parody psychedelic-rock video in the middle of it.

The song, “Under The Boardwalk” originally recorded by The Drifters, describes a date between a man and his lover in a seaside town, who plan to meet in private and “out of the sun” under a boardwalk. The instrumentation includes güiro, the triangle and an assembly of violins. The song’s chorus is considered unique because it switches from a major to minor key. The opening line of the song references the Drifters’ prior hit “Up On The Roof”, setting the stage for an alternate meeting location, under the boardwalk.
