Ride Like the Wind

Sometimes songs just stick in your head for weird reasons. I have Ride Like the Wind stuck in mine as it reminds me of a SCTV skit. In this Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers is rushing somewhere like Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate in a little MG. Unlike Dustin he is not going to break up a wedding, but he needs to make the recording studio just in time to do the chorus of the song.

This was typical of all the thought that SCTV put into their skits, and also how sometimes they mixed music in well. For an example of how good they were see Episodes 4/2-1 aired on NBC 16 Oct 1982, about the Soviet Union's hijacking of their satellite.

The DVD it is on is: SCTV Volume 2
