Remember That Song: 10/25/17

Can you name the artist and song:

You want to get next to me
I need your intrusion
I don’t need to be
Blinded by confusion


Last Song: “Love Plus One” by Haircut One Hundred from the album Pelican West (1982)

I, I went off to the right
Without saying good, goodbye
Where does it go from here?
Is it down to the lake I fear?

Your table manners are a crying shame
You’re playing with your food, this ain’t some kind of game

Quote of the Day: The Fog

Stevie Wayne: I don’t know what happened to Antonio Bay tonight. Something came out of the fog and tried to destroy us. In one moment, it vanished. But if this has been anything but a nightmare, and if we don’t wake up to find ourselves safe in our beds, it could come again. To the ships at sea who can hear my voice, look across the water, into the darkness. Look for the fog.

Quote of the Day: Twilight Zone: The Movie

John Valentine: [just saw the weird creature on the wing of the plane] There’s a man on the wing of this plane!

[Everyone looks out the windows on his side. But the creature has disappeared]

John Valentine: There was somebody out there. You gotta believe me!

Old Woman: I saw him. Green and slimy.

Old Man: Leave the poor man alone.

Old Woman: I’m only trying to help. You’ve got to humor them.

John Valentine: It was lightning. At first I thought it was animal. Some kind of bird or something. But it was a man! There were flames coming out of the engine, and a flash of smoke. Maybe it was a technician who was caught on the side of the plane when it took off. How could he survive out there? The air’s so thin, the blast of the wind. It’s so cold.

[begins to think it was only his imagination and feels embarrassed]

John Valentine: It’s impossible, isn’t it? Oh my god, I feel so stupid!

[takes sedatives to sleep. Then laughs nervously]

John Valentine: Can you imagine? A naked man crawling along the wing of an airplane at 35,000 feet?

Happy 72nd birthday to John Lithgow!!!

Last Song: “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around ” by Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty from the album Bella Donna (1981)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!!

I know you really want to tell me good-bye
I know you really want to be your own girl
Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words

Quote of the Day: Halloween II

Sam Loomis: If that wasn’t Michael Myers burning up in that car, then a lot of other kids are going to be slaughtered tonight.

Gary Hunt: He’s dead. You saw it.

Sam Loomis: I saw a man in a mask.

Gary Hunt: It was him.

Sam Loomis: I want to believe you, but I have to be sure. I can’t stop until I’m certain that he’s dead.

Gary Hunt: You’re talking about him like he’s some kind of animal.

Sam Loomis: He was my patient for fifteen years. He became an obsession with me until I realized that there was nothing within him, neither conscious nor reason that was… even remotely human. An hour ago I stood up and fired six shots into him and then he just got up and walked away. I am talking about the real possibility that he is still out there!

Last Song: “Pink Cadillac” by Bruce Springsteen from the non-album B-side of “Dancing in the Dark” and by Natalie Cole from the album Everlasting (1988)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!!

Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls, peeling out of sight

Bruce Springsteen version:
