Easy Rider is one of my favourite films and it certainly gets my nostalgic juices flowing back to the late 1960’s.
Watching this clip from the movie and listening to the Byrds sing ‘The Ballad of Easy Rider’ brings back many memories of a young lad dreaming of escaping what I thought was a boring life at that time.
I wanted to jump on a ‘hog’ and tear down Brunswick Street Fitzroy, head out into the countryside like my heroes in the film, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper.
And I did.
Everytime I watched the film.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNjzzDNIJWw
Footnote: One day I’m going to count the number of times Dennis Hopper says ‘Man’ in the film. I’ve lost count but I’m sure it’s more times than I have had hot dinners :)
