It's a song about a city.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Or, a bit more seriously:

New York, New York?

I love that song. That's why I picked it. I found it in my uncles record collection when I was really young (that's why I know a bit about 50s and early 60s music). He made a tape of it for me and I drove my father crazy playing it over and over so he bought head phones for me so I could listen to it with out bothering him LOL. Thanks Purp

It's been said, it was a prequel to the Alien films.

OK.

A movie. A young woman, when her husband is murdered, finds romance with an older man.
