One song per day along with an explanation of why you picked it. Day 11 – a song on the soundtrack of your favourite movie

War – Low Rider (1975)

My favourite film is the original 1947 version of Brighton Rock – and there isn’t really a soundtrack for that. So I’ve picked instead another favourite – ‘A Knight’s Tale (2001)’. There’s a host of excellent tracks on this film, one of the best of which is War’s ‘Low Rider’.
