Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “drive/driving.”

~~~~~~~~~~

I tried REALLY hard to stay away from the 80s this week… and failed! 😀

I veered off the path just a bit from this week’s theme of drive/driving to what we drive… cars, so I could post this great dance tune from 1988.

Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car by Trinidadian-British singer Billy Ocean, is based on a line in the Sherman Brothers’ song (famously covered by Johnny Burnette as well as Ringo Starr) You’re Sixteen.  Ocean took the single all the way to number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Black Singles charts. It also peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.

Part of its popularity lay in its cutting-edge (for the time) video, which featured animation mixed with live-action sequences.

Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car has been covered several times and used in everything from NASCAR soundtracks to Applebee’s commercials to Saturday Night Live skits.

Enjoy!
