All By Myself - a love song? or a terrorist's tool?

I found this broadcast of ABM starting at the 3:46 marker, and later at 6:26 on the tape recorder the man plays for her, and at the 7:32 mark when he is finally "all by himself".

It was great to hear Eric's voice , but at first it seemed the song was playing when a love song would normally be playing. (The man doesn't speak English or Italian - he points at a map to indicate what country he is from) so I erroneously guessed at first that whoever made this didn't understand English either and couldn't know the words or meaning of the song to have placed it at the 3:46 mark. But then I figured out that the song might be meant to be foreboding at that point, since he is thinking of her leaving on a flight.

I watched it again and realized that the plot takes a turn when he hears the TV news announcer say there was a terrorist attack on the plane. I think the bomb was found in the tape recorder so he was only using her!!

The clip identifies itself as Senza parole (Without words) from the Italian "I Nuovi Mostri" ("The New Monsters") in 1977.

The ABM clip that I posted on 03-09-2011 won't let me edit or add to it now so I will identify it here. (and I now see that the Ira post that I refer to is not easy to find since it is on another thread.)

It was explained there that the show was broadcast on that very same day (3/9/11). The clip's title already identifies Pia Toscano on American Idol.

Don't know if anyone's posted about this one yet, but "It Hurts Too Much" is in the new gory black comedy flick, "Super", starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler and Kevin Bacon. In an early scene, Wilson's character is getting the sh*t stomped out of him by Bacon's thugs, and EC's tune starts blasting! The movie is pretty funny, but extremely graphic/gory. . . . .And it has a very cool soundtrack (Cheap Trick, The Nomads, Eric, etc.) Was just released here this past Friday.

I couldn't find a link to it... this might be the first airing...but on tonight's episode of The Bachelorette there was an new "Pretzel M&M" commercial featuring EC and Hungry Eyes. They even have a Hungry Eyes guy sitting at the bar. I could almost hear Eric's pockets jingling Cha ching.

ABM again makes another appearance. This morning while watching Pix11 News...they were showing the Nathan's Hotdog Eating contest. Of course, Takeru Kobayashi, who has some type of contract dispute going on with Nathan's was not allowed to participate, but did his own HotDog eating event on a live screen at a different location.So needless to say when they were showing Takeru skarfing down his dogs...ABM was blairing loudly... smilie

Thanks, Elle, for posting the M&M's clip; I've been waiting to see it ever since Eric said it would be coming. I love heartpump Hungry Eyes and it's great to hear whenever it's used in a commercial.

I'd also like to thank Eric for letting us be the "first to know", but I wonder if he will ever read this since he has been absent for so long.
