#SLS for 6/14/20

Today Jim prompts us with Jack or John. From memory, I thought the prompt was Jim or James. I landed on Jim Croce’s “Don’t Mess Around with Jim”. Then I read the host post, preparing to add my own and was all Scooby Doo ruh roh. I did a switch to search for Jack or John songs and landed on this gem, “Hit the Road Jack” written by Percy Mayfield and performed by Ray Charles. Charles made it one of his signature songs spending five weeks at #1 on the R&B sides chart.

Without further ado, lyrics within.

This song reminds me of the movie “Dream Team”. Movie probably couldn’t get made today. Making light of mental illness is no bueno. I’m sharing the clip a way. If I were on that road trip, I’d be the Peter Boyle character. He’s sings without abandon from the very back seat. That’s so Jilly. I had no memory of the World Trade Center reference. That was a bit surreal.

To play along, here are the Rules and Ping Back.

    1. It was good in the whole detective who dunnit type way. A bit cheesy now that I look back. There is just something about those actors. Michael Keaton, Peter Boyle, Christopher Lloyd, Dennis Boutsikaris, and Stephen Furst really were a dream team.

  1. You’re right, no way this movie would be made today…but I still love it! I believe even in the worst of times, we should find the humor. That opinion gets me in trouble. A lot. 😄 Great share! 👍😊
