Fun fact: this song indirectly sparked my love for movies. When I was around 14, we had to make a list with historical events of the 20st and 21st century. Knowing this song, I used it to make my list. This was when I read more about "Psycho", a title of course everybody already knows, and I got really interested in it. It was then both one of the first "older" movies and one of the first "serious" movies I owned. Two years later I was a full blown film lover, though of course just getting started. - Martin_Canine
