"im gonna give up the booze and one night stands"
The booze is easy to give up, the one night stands though, pretty hard to give up unless you get a bit fat like i did.

Desparately Seeking Susan. Ahhh... that brings back memories. Cept i don't remenber em. I think i saw that one during the period where me and my crew would pile in the trunk with the beer to get into drive-in movies for free. Which means i would've seen the movie, but not paid much attention.

Those speakers that ya prop up on the window were lousy! Plus there was the beer. If a girl or two was about, no attention paid to movie. They don't have drive-ins anymore in my neck of the woods. Pity.

Feeling nostalgic, now......... growin up in SF when i did, my mom would shoo us outside to play. She'd say "it's a beautiful day, go outside." (It coulda been raining and she would say that.) The rule was to be home before the streetlights went on. I was usually at Ocean Beach, but would travel all over The City. As young as 8 years old. I would ride my bike over the Golden Gate Bridge and go to the flea market in Sausalito. Never told my parents where i'd been. (They prob didn't always wanna know, lol.) For a coupla years, my crew and I would break in to the SF Zoo by climbing the fence where the water buffalo lived. We'd dart from tree to tree thru it's pen and get to the zoo and just drink beer and watch the animals sleep. (The ones who weren't housed at night.) We had no idea til much later how dangerous water buffalos are. This one was well fed and lazy. Kids today growin up in The City seemingly can't do any of the stuff i got to do, and if a group of teens were caught in the zoo at night, there'd be arrests, i'm pretty sure. Oh well. That thing about You Can't Go Home (Frost?) is true for me, cuz home doesn't exist anymore and my City is completely different.

Crew dedicate this '70's spunky track to seeds...all are hooked on yer embarrassing forum.

tbb can vouch that this was an Official Top 10 Embarrassing song of the era. (That's good right!)
Mushed up all the Macho Men's moustaches.
{Warning!}
Song may still hold appeal with today's sensitive new age millennial audience...being serious!

Didn't Madonna do a kick-ass version of American Pie?

Yew!

Here's another interpretation - not as kick-ass - though still imbued with that deep sense of gravitas the song deserves.

And who doesn't enjoy a sing along like the good ol' boys here at the end?

And Blackers, yep, Ciccone Youth! Burning up!

Did someone mention drive-ins previously? Adelaide's last suburban drive-in sadly closed this year.

Perth's still hanging in.

I've been to two last hurrah drive-in celebrations/commemorations. Both country. One a few years ago up the road.
