0 September 4, 1987 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment On the Record By OIARLIE MARTIN NC News Service Columnist I ii i 'Back in the High Life Again' : ,offersL shallow view of high life Back in the High Life Again It used to seem to me that my life ran out too fast/And I have to take it slowly/To make the good part last/But when you are born to run/It's so hard to just slow down/So don't be surprised to see me/Back in the bright part of town. , REFRAIN: I'll be back in the high life again All the doors that closed one time will .... open up again I'll be back in the high life again All the eyes that watched us once Will smile and take us in. You used to be the best to make life be life to me/And I'm hoping you're still out there/And you're like you used to be/We'll have ourselves a Ume/And we']] dance till the morning sun/And we'll let the good times come in/And we won't stop until we're done. REPEAT REFRAIN We'll drink and dance/And have the world so easily/And though we'll boa sight to see/We'll be back in the high life again/High life/High life/In the high life again. Sung by Steve Winwood Written by Steve Winwood and Will |ennings Copyright (c) 1986 by Island Records Inc. STEVE WINWOOD wants to be "back in the high life again." For him, this seems to be a life of partying and letting "the good times come in." He tells his friends not to be "surprised to see me back in the bright part of town." Winwood's description of the high life seems a bit shallow. While it is important to enjoy life's good times, living successfully means more than finding the right place to party. However, the song does offer two suggestions worth considering. Winwood is right when he states that our lives can go on "too fast, and I have to take it slowly to make the good part last." He is also correct in noting how difficult it Can be to slow down when one has become accustomed to life on the run. Some people seem to make "doing" the whole focus of life. Their constant cycle of activity steals time away from life's other important aspects, like time for just being quiet, same moments for prayer or even time just to have fun. What happens to these busy people is that instead of taking charge of their lives, life runs them. Teens, or just about any of us, get more out of life by balancing activity with periods of quiet and relaxation. If you feel like you are always running out of time, or if you can never find the time to do what you want to do, then you are living life at too fast a pace. Second, the song reminds us that we need to take time to be with close friends. Real friends have a way of bringing out the best in us. They also help us find more meaning and zest in life. All of us want to live our lives as fully as we can. To do so is truly to discover the "high life." Making space and time for a variety of life's oppor- tunities, especially those mentioned in this article, is to build a life full of satisfaction. Your comments are always welcome.

Copyright (c) 1987 by NC News Service .t i i i i tll 'Stakeout' Police surveillance drama offers suspense and romance By TONY ZAZA USCC Dept. of Communication "Stakeout" (Touchstone- Buena Vista) is a drama which turns police surveillance into an occasion for suspense and romance. A potentially in- teresting concept of voyeurism developing into love is given shorthanded treatient by director John Badham. The result is a lifeless, predictable melodrama with a tough perfor- mance from Aidan Quinn as the ruthless escaped con and Emilio Estevez as subservient straight man to Richard Dreyfuss. Madeleine Stowe is the target for Dreyfuss' affections. Her every move is closely watched by Dreyfuss and Estevez, assigned to monitor her ac- tivities in anticipation of the ar- rival of her alleged boyfriend, the malevolent Quinn. Dreyfuss' detached telescopic view leads to fantasies of ::00tmythes: for the Pope," a 30-minute preview 0fthe upcoming visit pro, I tced for the United States Catholic Conference, L is scheduled Sunday, Sept. 6, :at 2:30 p.m. on WNIN TV ,, : ........ . ,, . L romance. It's a tired metaphor for voyeurism, and Dreyfuss' lukewarm performance unwit- tingly conveys the appropriate shallowness. When he visits Miss Stowe's apartment posing as a telephone repairman, she's im- plausibly trusting of and turned on to him. In this underdeveloped character piece, Miss Stowe's sexy ethnic type seems hungry for anything resembling com- mitment. Dreyfuss is ripe for an affair, any affair, but acts the coy knave trying to conceal his identity in often humorous fashion. Good guy Dreyfuss' clumsy aggressiveness wins out over good-looking rival Quinn's sadistic macho pathology in a conclusion languishing like a bubble which collapses rather than bursts. Some violence, brief nudity, a lovemaking scene and some profanity make this unsuitable fare for youngsters. Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez are detectives Chris Lecce and Bill Reimers, respectively, in the new action-comedy film, "Stakeout." Directed by John Badham, "Stakeout" takes a serio-comic look at what can occur when two cops on a routine stakeout find themselves swept up in a series of highly unusual events.
