Streets of Fire

I am sharing another bit of history with you this week. This time I want to share something happy with you, after sharing experiences of 20+ years ago, and childhood memories with you last week.

When Master T and I started chatting with each other back in 2002, we were just like any other two people getting to know each other. We wanted to know what the other does for a living, what kind of life the other lived and what things the other liked or disliked. One of my questions was: do you know the movie ‘Streets of Fire’?

Now I have to backtrack here a little…

Back when I lived way down south, I saw the movie ‘Streets of Fire’ for the first time. I loved the rough character of the male lead and I loved the love affair he had with the female lead character. Combine the magic of their love with the roar of motorcycles and some great (rock) music and I am sold! I was. However, whenever I asked someone whether they have seen ‘Streets of Fire’, they always said: no. There was just no one who knew the movie.

Then, this one night, I asked Master T this same question, expecting another no and more than ready to educate him about this movie. Can you imagine my surprise when he said that he knew the movie and that it was one of his favorites? And most of all… that his favorite song from the movie was exactly the same as my favorite song of the movie? Ever since, this has been one of our favorite songs and on nights that we play our favorites, this one is always included!

Tonight is what it means to be young – Diane Lane

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel on the beach
And the perfect waves are starting to come
His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold
And his touch has got the power to stun

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel in the forest
Enchanted by the edge of a lake
His body’s flowing in the jewels alive
And the earth below is starting to shake

But I don’t see any angels in the city
I don’t hear any holy choirs sing
And if I can’t get an angel
I can still get a boy
And a boy’d be the next best thing
The next best thing to an angel
A boy’d be the next best thing

I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy in a castle
And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs
He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes
And the thunder of a drum in his ears

I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy on a star
Lookin’ down upon the rim of the world
He’s there all alone and dreamin’ of someone like me
I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
No matter what it seems
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone

Ah…

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
