That's right, it's Spinal Tap! The classic mocku-rocku-documentary film from 1984, written and directed by Meathead himself. My symbolic image above points out their subtle joke of the "heavy metal umlaut" being added willy-nilly to letters where it doesn't belong (see, e.g., Mötley Crüe, Blue Öyster Cult, and so on). They of course "turned it up to 11" by applying it to a consonant.
I guess there's not much that can be said about this movie that hasn't already been said. It continues to make me laugh whenever I see it, and I'm always discovering new little jokes here and there. This, I think, provides justification for a link to my blue-in-the-face "laugh lines" bead to its lower-right. The link to Aerosmith's "Dream On" at the bottom is also pretty clear... David, Nigel, and Derek were no strangers to the over-earnest (maybe a tad over-wrought?) lyrics and guitar licks on display from Steven, Joe, and friends.
The link to Aleister Crowley's central word "rejoice!" from his occult masterpiece is less of a slam dunk, but Spinal Tap did enjoy exploring the mystical side of British history...
Stonehenge... where the demons dwell.Not too far in theme from some of Crowley's poetic excesses, I think:
Where the banshees live and they do live well.
Stonehenge... where a man is a man,
And the children dance to the pipes of Pan!
Thrill with lissome lust of the light,The final link is with Beethoven's Ode to Joy in the central spot. I don't think Beethoven himself was name-checked in the movie, but Nigel Tufnel was once seen composing a classically inspired piano piece, inspired by "Mach" (mash-up of Mozart and Bach?). Of course, he then let on that the title of his composition was "Lick My Love Pump," so the correspondence may not be all that perfect. :-)
O man! My man!
Come careering out of the night
Of Pan! Io Pan!
Io Pan! Io Pan! Come over the sea
From Sicily and from Arcady!
