Patrick Swayze, Dead at 57

In MemoriumPatrick Swayze was 57. He was the actor best-known for his roles as Orry Main in the North and South television miniseries, and as romantic leading men in the films Dirty Dancing and Ghost.

Sure, he showed up in some great flicks, but it's this song I'll be revisiting tonight.

I'm not afraid to admit that GHOST is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Rest in peace, Patrick.

Dirty Dancing.. I have no idea how many times I've seen that movie. It was the summer between grade 12 and 13 when it came out. I have seen it countless times on VHS and DVD and when I was in grade 13 I had recorded it so I could listen to it walking to and from school on my Walkman. So I've heard it about as many times as I have seen it. Pretty much every word in the movie I know by heart too. Sad to hear about Patrick for sure. 57 is very young.

Hey Mike, I know you got a couple of years on me, and you said "he showed up in some great flicks" but how could you not especially mention The Outsiders and/or Red Dawn?

I also have to mention Point Break. I can't not watch that whenever flipping through the channels.
