The clip coming back to work from Xanadu (1980)
Hey, Sonny... Never thought we'd see you back here again
I'm not exactly thrilled about it
You said this place made you crazy
I decided I'd rather be crazy than hungry
"The calculation is sensitive to the time you plan to own your house
The factor increases if you pay off your mortgage in five years"
He'd be lucky if he paid off the movers
Who could pay off a house in only five years?
Rock stars don't even need that long. They pay cash
A million dollars, man? See my manager. I'm busy, you know?
Last one in, first one home
Hey, it's Sonny
It's Michelangelo Malone
Michelangelo, the ceiling needs painting
All right, that's enough
The great Sonny Malone returns to AirFlo Records
welcomed by cheering throngs of thousands
Art world fails to suffer. News at 11:00
Cut it out. You know I wouldn't come back unless I had to
We were all really pulling for you
Yeah, like one of us breaking away
Really doing it
Yeah, no paint by numbers, no assembly line art. What happened?
It's what didn't happen. No bread
I fought it, that's for sure
I spend my whole life paintin' what other people want
I paint his van... I paint somebody else's mural...
I paint Simpson's album covers
Then when I finally quit to freelance
not only do I almost starve to death
but I can't figure out what I wanna do
You can try again
You will, won't you?
Ah, look who decided to drop in. Where's your white flag?
You have a way with words, Simpson. You know that?
Same old wiseass attitude. I thought we discussed this on the phone
when I decided to take you back
We did. But I have one question... Why the hell did you take me back?
Simple. You're good. And you're the fastest painter around
But this time no more artsy-craftsy Sonny Malone touches, huh?
Just enlarge the album cover the way I give it to you
