Day 420: Midnight Special, Creedence Clearwater Revival

So this classic from Creedence Clearwater Revival reminds me of the Twilight Zone movie which was released in 1983. The Movie of course was taken from the classic series The Twilight Zone which originally aired between 1959 and 1964 (before I was even born). My good friend Robert and I used to watch repeats of this classic show in the late 70s and 80s. When the Twilight Zone movie was released in 83, we all flocked to the cinema to see it, however, I think for those who had watched the original Twilight Zone series, it was quite a disappointing remake. Yet it did feature this classic Creedence song as a guy driving a hitch hiker down a lonely country road has this song blaring out of his car radio. The driver starts playing with the headlights turning them off for thrills saying to the hitchhiker: “Do you want to see something really scary?” However when they pull up, the hitchhiker offers his own scary question: “hey do you want to see something really scary..” Well let’s just say because it is the Twilight Zone it doesn’t end well for the car driver!
