Dr. Sam Hachiya: [intensely] What did you see? You come from Kansas City. What did you see?

Remember That Song – 8/9/18

Can you name the artist and song:

Tequila in his heartbeat
His veins burned gasoline
It kept his motor runnin’
But he never kept it clean


Last Song: “Theme from ‘Greatest American Hero’ (Believe It or Not)” by Joey Scarbury from the album America’s Greatest Hero (1981)

Great job sweetpurplejune and Jim (@JimVilk)!!!

Just like a light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true
