Can you name the artist and song:

I saw sparks fly, from the corner of my eye
When I turned, it was love at first sight

Great job Adora 2000 (@Adora2000), Melanie (@melanieofoz), Steveo (@SteveODonnell5), Todd (@TSmith6785)!!!

She knows how to rock ‘n’ roll
She drives me crazy

Quote of the Day: Pet Sematary

[Jud tells Louis the truth about the ground beyond the Pet Sematary]

Louis Creed: I’ll bite Jud. What’s the bottom of the truth?

Jud Crandall: Well, that sometimes, death is better.

Jud Crandall: [narrating] The person you put up there ain’t the person that comes back. It may look like that person, but it ain’t that person. ‘Cause… whatever lives in the ground beyond the Pet Sematary ain’t human at all.

Ralph: [to Jack] You’re all I thought about for six months! They threw me in a jail filled with rejects from the communicable disease ward. Every wacko, drippy, open-sored low-life was in that joint… all of them wanting to hire on as my proctologist!

Yesterday I saw my love light shine
Straight ahead in front of me
You never really know
When love will come or go


Last Song: “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” by Journey from the album Frontiers (1983)

Feelin’ that it’s gone
Can change your mind
If we can’t go on
Survive the tide, love divides
