    Oh my God. I have to tell you a long story about this very thing and Atlantic City, but that I have to go to bed. I thought if I put this, I would remem­ber to tell you later. OK.

    Oh and P.S. Jane, I’m going to steal your com­ments usage con­cept and use them to explain where the post titles came from. This one, sur­pris­ingly, is David Gates’ “Goodbye Girl.”

    Good idea! OK, so I was in AC in a hotel and there was noth­ing on TV but 9000 episodes of “Law & Order”, so I was watch­ing TNT, which I rarely do at home. Yes. So they kept hav­ing these lit­tle behind the scenes-​type com­mer­cials for some TV movie star­ring the wife off of “Everybody Loves Raymond” and I am not really pay­ing atten­tion until she says, “This is the most roman­tic script ever writ­ten” and I was like, “Oh my God. This bitch is insane,” think­ing it was just some every­day crappy movie-​of-​the-​week non­sense. THEN they showed the VIDEO of Hootie, etc. singing “Goodbye Girl” and I put the whole hor­ri­ble mess together. Man, I love that song. I got sad.

    Oh man, I saw those com­mer­cials too when I was in MN but I don’t recall hear­ing the das­tardly GG cover. I swear I was think­ing it might have been Staind or some­thing when I heard it, it was that awful. Anyway, when I was in MN, the first time one of those came on my mom was like “No … oh no … oh no they didn’t!!!” The more they revealed and the more she real­ized that it was a remake of “Goodbye Girl,” she got so wound up, it was hilar­i­ous. “HOW DARE THEY!” It was fan­tas­tic. Also, who wants to watch the Everybody Loves Raymond woman in any­thing? Eew, we get enough of her in the Albertson’s super­mar­ket com­mer­cials right. P.S., they ended up show­ing the orig­i­nal on TCM while I was there and Mom and I watched it and all was well until the end when she was like, “Now WHY would any­one DARE mess with THAT?! Oh GOSH!!!” and she got wound up all over again, it was fantastic.
