I don't remember the exact year but it was some time in the 70s at the Berrien County fair in Berrien Springs Michigan. The rodeo was about to start and to open the show a drop dead gorgeous girl came riding out on her steed zipping around the arena. Well being in my teen years, needless to say it left quite an impression on me! When I got home I picked up my guitar, jotted down some lyrics, and filed it away. When we were picking tunes for the "Happy Bottom Riding Club", I played it for Jeff and Larry and "Ride the Pony" was born. I remember driving home to Camarillo after that session thinking, we finally captured a tune the way I heard it in my head! Well the "Happy Bottom Riding Club" was never shopped to the labels and so it and the tunes on it were nothing more than a cult record being traded on the net. Fast forward to the fall of 2004. I get a call from an agent in New York and he says they would like to use "Ride the Pony" in a film. Well if you have heard the tune you can imagine why my first question was, "what kind of film are you talking about?". When he said the cast included "Billy Bob Thornton", "John Cusack", "Randy Quaid", etc and that the director "Harold Ramis" absolutely loved the tune, I negotiated the license!
The movie is "The Ice Harvest". Its out of the theatres but available on DVD or you can watch it on HBO.
