It's part of the movie soundtrack. IIRC, it's from the scene where he comes back to "his time" and the scientists are congratulating him, but I could be wrong on that (trying to do internet searches at work is frowned upon).

 
Ah, yes.  Makes sense now.

Nice quote from 12 Monkeys, but what's its relevance to this song?

Using that model they managed to generate every thought I could possibly have in the next, say, 10 years.

So you see, she knew I was gonna lead the Army of the Twelve Monkeys into the pages of history before it ever even occurred to me. She knows everything I'm ever gonna do before I know it myself. How's that?

Wow
Appropriate for me this morning!
"Ruby tipped Engine of Love"

{#Hearteyes}
I prefer The Shadows version. This is OK.

Ah yes, the Santo and Johnny version from back in the day was something to hear.  On my AM radio, listening to KFSD, sitting at the Aztec Drive-in down El Cajon Blvd in San Diego.  My 1950 Kaiser Traveller all spiffed up.  My delicious girl friend with the Beehive Hairdo, Poodle Skirt and a #40 MaidenForm uplift bra emulating the Great Pyramids, we watching Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello in some beachblanket bingo movie.  My throbbing ruby tipped Engine of Love ensnared in the restraining straight-jacket prison of my levis, feeling her tongue and mine squirming together like a basket of cocaine-crazed electric eels dancing a frenetic St. Vitus Dance as they writhe in Frenzied Urgency as if they were slowly boiled alive in a gigantic fleshy cavern of biting teeth, salivary juices and smashing metal braces.

At least I think that was what happened back in the Good Ole Days.
 
Did you write" 50 Shades of Gray"?
Pretty darned SWEET! The original still has some certain sound to it that maybe nothing can re-create, but it's mighty fine to hear this, too!
every time I hear this song, I think of the scene from Prophecy where Christopher Walken and his zombie companion ask the waitress Madge for directions ... http://www.brego.net/d01/movies/prophecy-walken/pro-w-16-madge-320.mov
Nothing can be as good as the original.  Santo & Johnny also didn't have King Crimson's Robert Fripp laying down the ambient background track to the tune.  A solid '8' to the original tune's '10'.

Uh, this is a tune interpreted by Satriani... it was written by Santo & Johnny Farina.

 
..and Ann Farina too apparently.

I only remember the Shadows version, from 1961. 
Love Joe's slower pieces.  More please Bill? {#Yes}

Nice music from a time when artists flowed across genre boundaries... Pick up a few of the Santo and Johnny CDs... dance slowly...
Good sound to add to the flow this afternoon... I like this day's soundtrack... Movies of my days with soundtrack by RP... If I had a shorter plot, the movie might sell... but this plot has twists and turns that take a lifeime to develop with characters shalow and complex... Just like real life... Harlequin-? Nope... Black Sparrow-? Maybe... a very weak maybe
 
My older brothers had this track on a Santo & Johnny LP; it was great to grow up hearing their version.
Not nearly as good as the original.  Only worth a 4.

I'll always be partial to Santo & Johnny, but this is the one JS track I can appreciate.
 
This is a cool and faithful version, but it doesn't really need that generic drumbeat, which is a little invasive (IMO).


My father has this on Ipod
I like it, he didn't mess with it too much.

Don't like a lot of his stuff,but he's got a few kickers.

«12 Monkeys» OST by T.Gilliam, remember and like this



Some songs just have a magical ability to transport me back in time.  This one does it everytime.

Never understood why artists choose to do their own renditions of tunes that are already perfect. Santo and Johnny...were it. This is a great attempt...perhaps its a tribute to what they enjoyed or were influenced by.
And let him sleep.

Better than Becks, near as good as Santo & Johnny. Both being a 10.

Missing Santos & Johnny... but for the new people on the planet...
Enjoy...


I keep waiting for the guitar to jump up an octave and begin screaming!!!  I like it!

Had to stop work to comment. This song brings me straight back to a high school dance. Slow dancing with the best looking girl in my class. Wow!
 
Wow, I bet that was an "uplifting" experience.

What a surprise to hear Joe HERE! Yay!!! I so wish this man would do a retro CD. Sigh.
About time somebody covered this and played it with real style  {#Bananajam}

original or not, I'll take any satch I can get{#Cheesygrin}

I like the Brian Setzer version better, but only because it has a horn section.

This is a great tune too.
