The Runaways, “Cherry Bomb”

I had a work study job at the NYU film school, and I spent hours in the audio transfer room, turning vinyl and tape songs into 16mm film magnetic versions that could be used when cutting film.

NYU was famous for this sort of audio/visual presentation, which was the heart of the freshman and sophomore curriculum, because Martin Scorcese, Amy Heckerling, Martin Brest, and Oliver Stone, among others, built films off this music/film integration after attending NYU.

My favorite song I heard in audio transfer was the Runaways’ Cherry Bomb. This live version is the best I’ve seen.
