Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car" by Billy Ocean

This song was a #1 hit in 1988.  As an 11 year old listening to it on the radio I could have sworn he was singing "get out of my dreams, get into my heart."  It just seemed to make way more sense that way; until I saw Licence to Drive.  That movie ruled.  In addition to the two Coreys, it starred a teenage Heather Graham almost a decade before she really became famous.  It's in the rotation on HBO right now, and I watched it the other night till about 5 am.  I didn't even turn off the TV until the theme song from the final credits was over.

And how about Billy Ocean then and now?  Wow.
