V is for Val Kilmer by Bowling for Soup

Bowling for Soup is an artist I discovered through a potentially unusual route – fan videos, specifically Harry Potter and Teen Titans ones. I remember liking the music that went really well with these fan videos so went and downloaded a couple of their albums and they’ve been sitting on my iPod ever since.

I love the vast majority of Bowling for Soup’s music, but Val Kilmer is one of my favourites. It’s a love song, or rather a song about a guy with a broken heart, but it’s told with a lot of movie references which makes it a lot of fun and different to your typical love song. I’m a cinephile so spotting the different references to actors and films (some of them I still haven’t seen) puts a smile on my face.

I saw Bowling for Soup live in London about eight years ago with friends and it was one of the most fun concerts I’ve ever been to. It was a great atmosphere, and everyone was jumping around and singing along.

Val Kilmer is a fun and catchy song and I love it.

  1. Oh my goodness, that’s a fun song!! Made me laugh. (I’ve never heard of Bowling for Soup.) I love all the movie references. I’ve had a difficult time visiting blogs during the challenge this year (I’m in the middle of a major move) so I’m glad I didn’t miss this post!
