I was just wondering if Here's looking at you, kid was a reference to Casablanca?

If it is are there any other TGA songs which are references to films?

I know:

I coulda been a contender - On the waterfront

There is also the references to Wizard of Oz in 'Contender' and 'Bring it on'

Also references to romeo and juliet

I'm just interested to find out if there are anymore as i'm really into films.

Well, you're spot on with Casanova, and I'm sure there are more.

"Here's looking at you kid" is from Casablanca. American Film Institute has it at #5 Greatest movie quote of all time.

Perhaps not as much film as a book but you have "Great Expecatitions" by Charles Dickens, still it have been filmatizezezezd. Actually read it after getting into TGA, recommended. Smile

All these are listed in the stickied thread in the song meanings section. I'm on xxx phone right now system I can't link to it.
