Cusp Song of the Day: Find My Way

"I must leave you, try to find my way...I think I'll be much better by myself." 

Cameo lead singer and co-producer Larry Blackmon wasn't even 20 yet when the band's version of "Find My Way" came out in 1975. The song didn't make the pop charts, but received extensive club play when it first came out and three years later when it was included on the Thank God It's Friday soundtrack.  

In Cusp, Craig has just introduced Karen and Mark to their first gay club, the Sting. Karen is having a hard time grasping the concept and Craig explains: 

"'This is what Westchester really is. It’s not just doctors and housewives and SATs and getting into Ivy League colleges. It’s closet cases and guys who are happy to finally be who they are.'

"'Guys who like other guys.' It feel like he’s lying, despite the supporting evidence dancing and laughing and brushing the hair out of each other’s eyes to the strains of Cameo’s 'Find My Way.'”
