Ironside, 1967-75
Ironside was introduced as a 2 hour TV movie. Chief of Detectives for the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD). He had been on the force for over 20 years. While on vacation, he was shot by a sniper, and paralyzed from the waist down. He wrangled a position as a consultant for the SFPD. Raymond Burr played Robert Ironside in this series. It was also shown in the UK as “A Man Called Ironside”.



The show was rebooted in 2013, with Blair Underwood (a Black actor) as Ironside. The setting was changed to NYC. It only lasted 4 episodes (one source said only 3 episodes)



Ain’t Nothing Gonna Hold Me Down, Men at Work, 1983



Last night I had the strangest dream,
I sailed away to China in a little rowboat to find you
And you said you had to get your laundry cleaned
Didn't want no one to hold you, what does that mean?



And you said
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving



You're on the road and now you pray you'll last
The road behind you was rocky
But now you're feeling cocky
You look at me and you'll see your past
Is that the reason you're running so fast?



And she said
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving



Never let another girl like you, whip me over
Never let another girl like you, drag me under
If I meet another girl like you, I will tell her
Never want another girl like you, have to say



Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving



Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving



Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh no, I've got to keep on moving
