The Move - Chinatown Lyrics. Bury a jar of shao-sing When the girl is born Surely you know the wine will age Till she's fully grown Dont fly into the night Soon enough the world will end While the lantern is right. I could find a good time girl in chinatown Chinatown Dancing in my shoes See the eastern ladies walking chinatown Chinatown Chain me down Chinatown.
The Move were a British rock band of the late 1960s and the early 1970s. They scored nine Top 20 UK singles in five years, but were among the most popular British bands not to find any real success in the United States. Although bassist-vocalist Chris "Ace" Kefford was the original leader, for most of their career the Move was led by guitarist, singer and songwriter Roy Wood.

Chinatown premiered 45 years ago today. We look at Roman Polanski's classic, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, with an IMDb Supercut. With Chinatown however, everything works well as a homage to the best years of the genre and, as such, is very well set in the period and is of suitable presentation even if the material and tone is darker and harder than would have been allowed years ago. This is not to say it is just a copy and paste from better films because it isn't and indeed stands out as one of the best detective noirs I have seen in ages.
Chinatown is a very good movie, but, having just watched it again, I don't think that it achieves greatness. Robert Towne's much lauded script is certainly a highly efficient piece of work - I can see why it is admired by the Robert McKee school of bers - but it is much too calculated, too preocupied with its own coincidences and implausibilities to really come fully to life. Everything is calculated for effect. It is intended to make your flesh creep, and it does.
CHINATOWN is a nwobhm music artist. Hopgood had previously been in SHY, a Portsmouth based outfit that also featured lead vocalist BRIAN HOWE, later to find fame fronting BAD COMPANY. CHINATOWN soon became noted for the distinctive vocal style of Pragnell and the quintet was quick to release the sought after 'Play It To Death' album, which was recorded live. Thanks to for the updates.
