Sometimes you hear a song that takes you back to a good memory of hearing that song. Today I heard this:
and was immediately back at The Forum in Inglewood with my sister. We were there to see The Cars. It was a Monday night. I don't remember they year.
We had great seats up front (this was possible back in the day!). When Benjamin Orr started singing this I could have sworn he was singing it to me. Sigh.
Ben died in 2002 of pancreatic cancer. I know most people think of Ric Ocasek when they think of The Cars, but I always think of Ben.
