Jon’s Family Movie Pick: Six Pack

six_pack_dvd_cover
What do Diane Lane, Anthony Michael Hall and Kenny Rogers have in common?  1982’s Six Pack. Combine a broke down stock car racer’s comeback, prankster orphan mechanics and the #1 country hit “Love will Turn You Around” and you’ve got a family hit.  This is the kind of movie I pop in the betamax.   These days we all need a gentle persuader.


love will turn you around

You can run you can hide never let it inside 
Keep livin your life in the dark 
But sooner or later that gentle persuader 
Is gonna catch up with your heart 
Make you a dreamer, believer 
Believin in love 

Right when a mans doin all that he planned 
And he thinks hes got just what he needs 
Life will deliver a shock that will shiver 
And drivin him down to his knees 
Make him start givin, livin 
Livin again 

Well, its your mind, that tricks you in believin every time 
Love will turn you around, turn you around 
Well, its your heart, that talks you into to stayin where you are 
Love will turn you around, turn you around 

Out of the blue she reaches for you 
And you tell her you dont have the time 
So you move away fast but you know it wont last 
Cause you cant get her off of your mind 
Thoughts are burnin, turnin 
Theyre turnin around 

How do you know when to stay or to go
 And how do you know when its real 
You dont need a sign to make up your mind 
You got your heart at the wheel 
You wanna start sharin, carin 
Carin again 

Love will turn you around, turn you around 
Love will turn you around, turn you around 
Turn you around
