Notes: I adore Forever Knight. At times, the series was hindered by inconsistent storytelling and poor production values but the characters and the world they lived in has consistently entertained and sparked my imagination. However, the world of Forever Knight could not have been possible had it not been for the little seen 1989 TV movie Nick Knight. With Rick Springfield as the title character, the movie aired on CBS 20 years ago today as a backdoor pilot. The project was shelved and reworked as Forever Knight in 1992. Despite working with essentially the same script, the projects are as different as night and day, but in my opinion equally entertaining. The purpose of the vid is to celebrate the project that created the world of a centuries old vampire cop, his desire to atone for his sins and the supporting characters that surround him. Take a bow Nick Knight. Maybe LaCroix will dedicate another song and dance for you. And as Jack would say, "Keep eating."


Lyrics:

I want a girl, girl that won't talk back
And a job, job that gives me slack
And a car, car that won't break down
In the heat of Los Angeles
Want to go, go without a map
Far away, away, I won't get trapped
By the sound, a town, the sun beats down
In the heat of Los Angeles

One more holiday
I will not celebrate
I'm almost desperate
Cause I'm down, I'm down, I'm so beat down

(This city's killing me)
Come on, come on
It's alive and breathing
Come on, come on
Come alive today
(This city's killing me)
Come on, come on
It's a heartless beating
The sun is burning down Los Angeles (one more holiday)
The sun is burning down Los Angeles (I will not celebrate)
The sun is burning down Los Angeles (one more holiday)
The sun is burning down Los Angeles (I will not celebrate)
