What do you think of when you think of a “Big Ride“? Many would probably think of a rollercoaster, or one of those monster rides that make you puke your guts out at county fairs.
In the movie FACE/OFF, one of the Clan’s great little Guilty Pleasures, the “Big Ride” is a metaphor for Death, the Big Ride to the Next World.
Here’s one of several scenes using a song-ish snippet, probably composed by the movie’s soundtrack composer, John Powell”
Clan Murphy, of course, not quite so cognizant on a daily basis of Huge Cosmic Realities, turned that snippet of song into a refrain to be sung every time we all clamber into the car for a trip to, say, Shop ‘N’ Kart.
Are you ready? Are you ready for the Big Ride, baby…?
