Top 100 Songs of All Time [TOP TEN] - Rupert Hine 'With One Look [The Wildest Dream]'

Top 100 Songs of All Time
[TOP TEN]
Rupert Hine
'With One Look [The Wildest Dream]'

Anyone who has ever seen the 'Savage' Steve Holland Teen epic Better Off Dead will most likely recognize this song as the one that plays as John Cusack and Diane Franklin are sitting on his muscle car in the middle of the ballfield.

Simply hearing the first five seconds of this song does something so profoundly melancholy to me that I feel as though my heart may stop - and this is no exaggeration. Rupert Hine, who had worked alongside of Howard Jones and had a HoJo synthpop vibe to his music really captured something with this song - namely, how it would have felt to be a teenager and to be in love with Diane Franklin, arguably one of the most beautiful teen idols to ever grace the movie screen.

This song goes in the Top Ten of my all time favorites.


...

With one look you read me like a book
I was blind just in time you came to my mind
Eyes like starlight through the darkness you came inside
When I was fighting looking for something I could not find

you trust and you believe in me
Believe in me
Sometime the wildest dream becomes reality

With one look you read me like a book
with out rhyme ooh you helped me find the strength inside
all your Patience and sweet persuasion you never lied
when i was hiding, hiding from something I'd never try

Now every thing I used to feels a memory
Sometime the wildest dream becomes reality
With one look

Eyes like starlight through the darkness you came inside
When I was fighting looking for something I could not find

you trust and you believe in me
Believe in me
Sometime the wildest dream becomes reality
With one look

Eyes like starlight through the darkness you came inside
When I was fighting looking for something I could not find
Eyes like starlight through the darkness you came inside
when i was hiding, hiding from something I'd never try
Eyes like starlight through the darkness you came inside
When I was fighting looking for something I could not find

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind



...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!

Stefene Russell

Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
