There was a lot of noise on Facebook and Twitter over the weekend when, during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl Saturday night, Peter Gabriel was briefly joined onstage by John Cusack, who brought the musician a boombox that he then held up in the air before launching into one of his more famous songs, "In Your Eyes."
And why is it so famous? Well part of that had to do with a little movie from 1989 called Say Anything, which was written and directed by Cameron Crowe (who was also in attendance and tweeting the entire time) and features that iconic scene where Cusack professes his life to the girl he adores by holding a boombox up outside her window (which was a very '80s thing to do). That boombox, of course, was blaring Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."
Check out video of the performance below, as well as the original scene from Say Anything.
