In one of the best uses of a song in film history, John Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler aims to win back the affection of Ione Skye’s Diane Court in 1989’s Say Anything by appearing outside of her bedroom window holding a boombox pumping In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel. Last night at the Hollywood Bowl stop of Peter Gabriel’s Back To Front So Live Tour, Cusack emerged from the venue’s wings during In Your Eyes to present Petey with a boombox to a massive ovation from the crowd.
It was a scene that warmed the hearts of ’80s movie buffs such as ourselves and a scene that Say Anything’s director, Cameron Crowe, won’t forget anytime soon.
UPDATE: HyperVocal found a video…
Cusack stood side stage all night at the show, which we hear was filmed for a future video release, and tweeted shots from the concert all night. Alright Tom Cruise, you’ve got to up the ante by strolling across a Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band stage in your undies during Old Time Rock and Roll.
