Saturday Night Special

I recently binge-watched all of The Real World season 2, except for the first two episodes, which the DVR didn’t catch for some reason. But that’s fine, that’s the road trip part with only three of them. In 1993 I was a college freshman and sophomore a year before my first internet access, so MTV was a pretty big deal. They even still showed some music once in a while.

It’s so interesting to see how different everything was when people had to do things like share a land line and figure out how to get somewhere using a big paper map.

Anyway, those of you who have seen the season no doubt remember Jon Brennan, the country singer, auditioning for a movie called Slow Burn, which he didn’t get the role in. I found it on YouTube. It was released under the name Saturday Night Special, and Billy Burnette from Fleetwood Mac got that role. His character gets the job as the singer at the bar where the movie takes place with the original singer, played by Allyce Beasley, passes out during her set. She was not credited for this role, and I don’t blame her for not wanting to be listed in the credits.
