Videos of Summer: Key Largo (1982)

Based on the lyrics, Bertie Higgins' 1-hit wonder of 1982, "Key Largo", was an ode to movie legends Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, except that Higgins was referring to his own failed relationship. The song title, of course, comes from a Bogart/Bacall classic from way, way back in the day.

The line, "Here's looking at you, kid.", though, comes from another Bogart film, "Casablanca".
