The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)

There is a lesser known urban legend that concerns how the song received its subtitle and many of its lyrics: supposedly the NYPD would take confiscated marijuana and burn it somehow, possibly in an incinerator, near the foot of the 59th st Bridge. Hippies, potheads, Paul Simon and probably more were reminded to “slow down…make the morning last” and enjoy the “fresh air” above on the bridge to “feel groovy”.

The video, produced by Paul Flattery and directed by Jim Yukich of FYI, features a dog wandering around a rehearsal concert stage while Collins rehearses the song with his band. It ends with the dog peeing on bass guitarist Leland Sklar’s leg. The actual dog was a female, so it’s leg had to be rigged to simulate the male’s action of cocking its leg. It was shot in England.

Enemy Mine (film)

A blizzard and an attack by an indigenous predator forces Davidge and Jeriba to flee their shelter. To pass the time Jeriba teaches Davidge his full lineage. Jeriba later slowly dies in childbirth, but not before making Davidge swear to take the child back to the Drac Homeworld and recite his full ancestry so he can join Drac society. Davidge raises the child, named Zammis (Bumper Robinson). Davidge and Zammis form a very close bond, and the young Drac loves Davidge as any sentient child loves a parent, despite referring to Davidge as “uncle”.
