Commenter Of The Day: Mack Gordon Edition

Illustration for article titled Commenter Of The Day: Mack Gordon Edition

Though it's possible you've never heard of Mack Gordon, it's exceedingly unlikely you've gone your whole life without hearing one of his songs. The Polish-American songwriter is famous for a wide range of classics including the timeless and wonderful "At Last" and the timeless and awful "You Make Me Feel So Long" as well as numerous original works for Broadway (including the musical Fast And Furious, which we didn't realize was a musical first). His original songs for Hollywood are, if not always as famous, at least as good. His song "Prelude to a Kiss" is so good it inspired a play, which then inspired a movie. We can't be sure, but it may have also inspired the Honda Prelude, which was the first to get the lyrical Super Handling All Wheel Drive system, which Prawo Jazdy and The Velocity Trumpets thinks is almost as important as turn-by-turn iPhone directions.

There are people out there that won't buy a car without a navigation system. I don't want these people on the road. They're usually identified staring at their iPhone, thinking about how awesome it is that it is telling them where to go (or what to eat) while barreling down the interstate. It's cool though, SH-AWD will keep them from flipping into a ditch.

Such a well observed social commentary. Top notch.

Although I have to say, the Shawd isn't a requirement. I know. I've been in one of those cars. The iPhone does everything until the battery dies or iPhone loses connection. Then you'd better hope the passenger is a good map reader. I happen to be one of those people. That's how I'm still alive today.
