The Silence of the Lambs is no doubt one of the greatest genre films ever made. It’s managed to sustain, if not build upon an already enormous fan base. And if you ask that fan base to recite a few lines from the movie you’re bound to hear something to the effect of, “put the lotion in the basket!” and rightfully so – the entire sequence in which Buffalo Bill tortures that poor young lass in the well has become quite iconic.
So iconic, in fact, that the band Greenskeepers released a song called “Lotion” about 10 years ago. Today marked the first time I caught the little jingle, and I’m sad to say my life may have been better had I discovered this a decade ago. It’s just amazing!
