Song Trivia When it was time to film the end title sequence where Buckaroo and his bandmates are walking in the dry L.A. aqueduct in step to the music, they were actually walking to Billy Joel's "Up Town Girl". The crew tied a boom box to a camera truck and blared it during filming. The music that shows up on film wasn't ready yet but had the exact same tempo as "Up Town Girl"!
