Remember That Song – 3/30/18

Can you name the artist and song:

She said reality is a knife
When there’s no love in your life
And merciful is the night
When you just can’t stop this feeling

Quote of the Day: The Outsiders

Dallas: We gotta win that fight tonight. We gotta get even with those Socs! Let’s do it for Johnny, man. We’ll do it for Johnny!

It was 35 years ago yesterday, that this classic was released. I was always a reader. But S.E. Hinton made me fall in love with reading. And I also loved this movie adaption.

Hall & Oates March Madness Tournament: And the winner is…

Out of Touch

Yes, the voters have spoken, and “Out of Touch” is the winner of the Return to the ’80s inaugural tournament – Hall & Oates March Madness. “Out of Touch” defeated “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)”, pretty handily 22-10. On the road to this victory, “Out of Touch” defeated “How Does It Feel to Be Back” (51-7), “Method of Modern Love” (15-3), and it’s closest matchup, “Maneater” (11-10).

This tournament was a lot of fun. Thank you so much for voting, and making this worthwhile. We will definitely have another one.

Last Song: “You Got Lucky” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers from the album Long After Dark (1982)

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turned your eyes away
If you don’t feel complete
If I don’t take you all of the way then go
