Head Cuttin’ Duel by Steve Vai and Ry Cooder

Mike Check: Since I’m letting you pick the songs now darlin, what song do you have for us to beat Sam with today?

Mike’s Daughter: Well I was watching a movie called “Crossroads”…

STAN: Crossroads? Wasn’t that the “awful ‘Britney Spears’ movie? That was one of my best works. What do you have for me? “Oops I Did It Again”? Ha ha ha!

Mike’s Daughter: No. I’m talking about the 1986 film starring Ralph Macchio from “The Karate Kid”. He plays a guitar student who goes down to Memphis and plays a head-cutting guitar duel with a man, played by Steve Vai, who sold his soul to the devil. If he wins, his Blues musician friend Willie gets his soul back, but if he loses, then has to also put his own soul on the line. And yada yada yada, you know how it ends.

STAN: No. A music student beating legendary guitar player Steve Vai, in a guitar duel? That’s plot is so unrealistic! Learning Karate via “Wax on, Wax off” is more realistic than that. But very well, let’s hear it!
