Song 'Memories are Made of This'


Does anyone know if the movie version of this song is available? She sings it with such knowing venom and longing.

Originally the song is written by Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller (The Easy Riders), first recorded 1956 by Dean Martin and The Easy Riders. There's also a version of Ray Conniff (forget it), and a cooler one by Johnny Cash.

The movie-version (which is the very best) was released on a 2-LP by Peer Raben: "Musik Aus Fassbinder-Filmen (1969-1982)" (1984). Raben's/Fassbinder's version was later covered by a strange gothic-band named Kirlian Camera - they do it very much like Raben/Fassbinder (with piano and female voice), so it's good for those who can't find the original, even if the singer doesn't have a good voice...

Definately a memorable, sexy and alluring scene. It's stuck in my head. The voice and the stance while she sings.
