Today marks the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s Green. My favorite song from the album is “You Are The Everything.” What’s yours?
As a girl, my family would drive all night to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with relatives in Houston. This song perfectly captures lying in the backseat, looking at the stars and watching the streetlights pass by, while listening to classic country and oldies on the radio.
Here’s the scene You’re in the backseat laying down The windows wrap around To the sound of the travel and the engine
All you hear is time stand still in travel You feel such peace and absolute The stillness still that doesn’t end But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you’ve ever seen And they’re there for you For you, alone, you are the everything
Happy 25th anniversary to one of my favorite and most-quoted comedies, Tapeheads, starring John Cusack and Tim Robbins, as two losers who start a music video production company, Video Aces.
This little-known gem is chock-full of great cameos by Jello Biafra, Stiv Bators, Don Cornelius, Fishbone, Ted Nugent, “Weird” Al and many more and has great performances by Sam Moore and Junior Walker.
This film is so obscure, I can’t even find a trailer online, but here is the infamous sobriety test, which I have mastered. Just ask me to demonstrate it at your next party. ;)
Seek out this funny film. You won’t be disappointed. SWANKY MODES!!!
