It reminds me of him.

This is wrong but I can’t help but feel like there ain’t nothing more right, babe

Misty morning comes again and I can’t help but wish I could see your face

And I knew from the first note played I’d be breaking all my rules to see you

You smile that beautiful smile and all the girls in the front row scream your name

 

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like, ‘I can’t take my eyes off of you’

I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl who’s desperately in love with you

Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, Superstar

 

Good morning, loneliness comes around when I’m not dreaming about you

When my world wakes up today you’ll be in another town

And I knew when I saw your face I’d be counting down the ways to see you

And you smile that beautiful smile and all the girls in the front row scream your name

 

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like, ‘I can’t take my eyes off of you’

I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl who’s desperately in love with you

Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, Superstar

 

You played in bars, you play guitar

And I’m invisible and everyone knows who you are

And you’ll never see you sing me to sleep every night from the radio

 

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like, ‘I can’t take my eyes off of you’

I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl who’s desperately in love with you

Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, Superstar

Sweet, sweet Superstar… Superstar

— Taylor Swift, “Superstar”

Lyrics: When You Gonna Lay Me Down

When You Gonna Lay Me Down by The Cars

I was starting to listen to you, you get cheap talk from the avenue

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

You were feeding me the ugly stuff, I couldn’t tell if it was a bluff

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

 

And I was hung up on your mystery

And you were trying to beg to save my sanity

 

I wanted to be your flair and run my fingers through you long blonde hair

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

 

And I was hung up on your mystery

And you were trying to beg to save my sanity

 

I wanted to follow you home and ring you up on the telephone

Come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

I guess I wanted to be your flair and run my fingers through your long blonde hair

C’mon honey when you gonna lay me down

 

I said come on honey, when you gonna lay me down

I said come on honey, when you gonna lay me down?

 

Quoting Benjamin

On working with Andy Warhol for the video “Hello Again”: “(laughs) He was a different kind of human being. (laughs) He was nice enough. Sorry he passed away. Yeah, it was a whole different ambiance going in and shooting a video with those guys. It was very hardcore New York stuff. There was just an air about the whole process.” ~ interview with A.J. Wachtel of The Beat, October 1987

In other words:

What was the extent of (Benjamin’s) contribution to the band? “Well, his looks (laughs). He had the wonderful voice that I mentioned… He could play more than just bass, he could play any instrument. He played drums for awhile… ” — Ric Ocasek, “Town Hall with Ric Ocasek” on SiriusXM, April 28, 2016
