: This trope name makes me think of travel or a hasty exit. Would Training Montage
work better as a name? That's what it's called in the Buffy quote....
: No, the association with the song is too important.
: I think Training Montage
works better since A-I didn't know the name of the song and didn't get it until i saw the Drawn together example and B-they use this montage with other songs as well C-The title also made me think of a hasty exit rather than what it was intended.
//Little Later: How about calling it Training Montage
and have in the text "Also known as a Gonna Fly Now Montage, after the song in rocky..." ect then the examples still all work and there is precedence of doing stuff like this within the wiki.
: I like this name better. It's not that
confusing - you won't just read past it figuring that it's a montage about making a hasty exit, because there's no such thing; you'll click on the link to find out what it is.
: I just dont think it is very Mnemonic
: I agree with Ununnilium. And for at least some of us of a certain age, this name zeroes in perfectly on the target.
: Ive set up a redirect at Training Montage
just to make it easier to link to and so that either can be used as a compromise.
Your Obedient Serpent
: I found the page by searching for "Training Montage
", but I like "Gonna Fly Now Montage
: Then the redirect has done its job
Your Obedient Serpent
notes that the Daffy Duck cartoon mentioned is decades older than any of the other examples — including Rocky
. Can anyone find a Gotta Fly Now Montage
that predates it? It would be really funny if the Oldest One in this particular Book was such a perfect subversion.
octochan: I've never watched Rocky, so I believed training montages were supposed to be done to 'Eye of the Tiger'? Ok, I went and actually listened to and recognized the song, so NOW I can associate the one with the other, but you might as well call it Rocky Montage if you don't want to go with the obvious name.
: As much as I like the name, I agree that this should probably be merged into Training Montage, or vice versa. For all intents and purposes, they're the same thing with different music.
In other news, there's a Budweiser commercial out in the US now where practically the whole commercial is a Training Montage
(a second-string Clydesdale manages to make the Bud wagon team with the help of a Dalmatian coach). The music used is - wait for it - "Gonna Fly Now." Should this be included?
