I'm a big fan of the movie "Better Off Dead". It was my introduction to John Cusack and for years I thought I was the only one who enjoyed watching the movie over and over on my VHS copy taped from HBO. When I got to high school I started realizing other people knew the movie, which is now regularly recognized as not only a great 80's film, but a damn fine Savage Steve Holland comedy (not that he has many others).
In honor of Summer movie season starting this weekend, I give you E.G. Daily's "One Way Love (Better Off Dead)"
(PS- Sorry your Mom blew up, Ricky.)
