As Back to the Future fans would know, 1985 is the starting point for the movie trilogy.
In the first movie Marty is sent back to Nov 5th, 1955.
In the second movie he is sent to October 21st, 2015 and he has to get a sporting almanac off Biff, so Biff doesn't become a millionaire from betting on results of sporting events he already knows the outcome of and alter the future badly.
|Michelle Payne born 29 September 1985 (age 30)|
female jockey for the first time ever on a 100-1 shot, not only that, but the winning jockey was born in 1985, same year as Lana Del Rey was, and the same year that BTTF starts from.
|Ride? Body Electric?|
What a Payne!?
you would have read of the tragic death of another jockey, Tim Bell, that night when he fell from his 12th floor apartment.
Dark Paradise? Bel(l) Air?
And the lyrics to Radio are eerie in hindsight also, considering races are called over the radio.
And as far as the National Anthem goes, check out this story that came out of Melbourne Cup Day -
Jessica Mauboy says anxiety attack led to her cancelling Melbourne Cup anthem performance
And as for Cola...well, Marty is always after a free Pepsi...and hopefully it doesn't taste like pussy...whatever Lana Del Rey means by that?-)
What A Nuisance on November 5th (?!) at odds of 15/1.
What A Nuisance's dam, Fashion Bell
(who's dam was named Delmura)
was a descendant of The Witch, a British mare who was exported to Australia in the late 19th century, becoming the grand-dam of the 1902 Melbourne Cup winner The Victory.
What A Nuisance was owned by Lloyd J. Williams, an Australian property developer and businessman.
|Lloyd J. Williams a property developer?!|
Del Rey and the 11th of May Syncs
Oh, and the winner of the 1955 Melbourne Cup was #11, too.
