This has been the first chance I’ve had to post anything since I got back from vacation. And what better way to get back into the swing of things than to put up one of my favorite types of posts — one with a LOST actor singing.
The clip is from The Last to Go, a 1991 made-for-TV movie about a husband (Terry O’Quinn) who abandons his wife. A reviewer in EW gave it a grade of B and wrote:

But director John Erman (Who Will Love My Children?) understands that it doesn’t matter whether the details of a script are cliched; the execution of them can redeem the banality….
