My query is indeed for the sound segment of the intro-level course
"Introduction to the Moving Image Arts," which I've been obliged to teach
for the last ten years. I'm tired of the examples I've been using, which
include the titles you mention, so I'm looking for more unusual material
just to keep myself awake and amused. I'm totally distracted with book
projects that are on entirely different subjects, so I thought I'd appeal to
the terrific resource that Frameworks is. And of course it works...
