Marc, I really enjoyed the commercials viewed during the Homecoming especially the last one (Boys of Summer). Do you know if any or all could be acquired?

Thanks,

Dan

If your asking about the song used in the last commercial, it's "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley; here's the lyrics....

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow and you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, "Don't look back. You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Ssr Song

We want a copy of the SSR song that was heard on the Lansing video in the lunch area. It's based after the Beatles-Back In USSR, but sung about the SSR. I need to get a contact name so I can try and obtain this song. Everyone wants a copy of it. Marc can you put me in the right direction and I'll handle it. Thanks

I have asked for copies for both days events... however certain footage i.e. employees working at the plant might not be available do to the fact it was intended for GM internal use only.

Please know I will do my very best to acquire as many photos/ posters/ footage as possible! :thumbs

I just heard back from Karen at the LCC. Here is her reply to my questions.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for your help.

Yes, we had the UAW/GM media center taking photos from above. I will be putting them in the special edition next week!

It should be a nice paper. Have a great day,

Karen

YES!!! :) I asked to get some orginal files to have for my records and to be able to post on here too! :thumbs

We never did get all of the SSR movie commericals in one place so we can all download them.
www.ISSRA.org was thinking about it and I wouldn't mind putting them all one webpage. Depending on the format, I can shrink the movies down to about 1mb. each for the dial-up people also.

Send them to [email protected] and I'll post the URL location...
