Streets Of Fire - Keep the 80's in the 80's

Film in the 80's had a certain exaggerated drama in acting I miss dearly. One liners to beat the band and costume wise, well... Talks for its self. It has taken me 20 years to get my head around that era but now I'm getting excited about the old action films. I'm learning to appreciate the decade of shoulder pads and violent high heels. Not to be recreated on the streets of Shoreditch, looks stupid.

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
