Fan Created Goonies Musical

Goonies Cast Reunion Empire Magazine

While a sequel to The Goonies might not be happening (or is it?), director Richard Donner has been trying to turn the property into a Broadway Musical.Who knows if that will ever happen, but we might have a preview of what a Goonies musical might sound like. /Film reader Rob Dean has been writing songs for a Goonies musical with his friend Keith Doughty, way before it ever became a thought in Donner’s mind. They have sent over a couple music videos based on the sample compositions they have created. Again, these songs/videos are completely fan created, and not in anyway connected with Donner or the actual Broadway musical (which may or may not still be in development). Watch the videos, and listen to the songs, embedded after the jump.

Oh, and that what-do-they-look-like-now cast reunion photo above is from Empire Magazine’s 20th Birthday Issue last year.

Sloth’s Song:

Oh no, this isnt what I wanted at all
Chained up here against the wall
By the ones that I love

Oh no, this isnt what I wanted to be
A model of repugnancy
Is this all that is meant for me?

Oh.No.

I used to have crazy dreams
This isnt what its supposed to be
Darkness is all that I see and I wanna be free
Yeah I wanna be, wanna be free

Im just a little boy lost
A deformed man they call Sloth
Someone please cut these chains
I just want to be the same
As everyone I see
Talkin to me on the TV

Oh mama, why dont you love me?
Is it just that Im too ugly?
What do you see when you look at me
Look at me, go on and look at me.

Taking It Back:

BRIDGE1:
I take back all the words I said
All fairy tales are dead
Lets start all over again
These childish games are done
Im not havin that much fun
What can I do?

CHORUS
Im takin it back
Once and for all
You might see tears in my eyes
But youll never see them fall
Im takin it back
It didnt come true
This dreamin got me nowhere
Now Im stuck down here with you

And sure us guys wanted to save the day
Keep our homes
Thats wishful thinking

Its my own fault for thinking coins were dreams,
How could I know?
You shouldve told me

BRIDGE2:
Life aint no wishin well
Theres no way you can tell
Where this path will lead us
And maybe theres no treasure
No pot of gold to find
So I dont know about you

CHORUS

(Slash solo)

CHORUS

Stuck down here with you
Stuck down here with you

Im takin it back
Im takin it back
Im takin it.back.
