Classic Graffiti Hits


Classic Hits
George Lucas built American Graffiti around some of the best songs ever. The music was so important to him, that he spent nearly 10% of the total budget to make the film on music rights. It was the first movie to be built around pop songs as most movies and musicals had songs written for the story. To this day, the songs in the Graffiti soundtrack are some of the best. Graffiti fans will get a big treat this month as there will be some epic concert experiences.
