    Good 12 string song, Southern Nights, Glen Campbell

    How about Diana Ross, Upside Down, Inside Out, that is kind of like a direction.

    You can almost do the whole trip with John Linnell:

    No East though, so I'll throw this in instead:

    Go West by The Cult.

  16. Directionals....

    My brother pulled the car over and said, ‘I don’t think the directionals are working, get out and help me check.’

    I got out and waked to the rear of the car. He turned on the right directional and shouted, ‘Are they working?’

    ‘Yes.... No....Yes.... No.... Yes...’ I reported.

    Sorry folks....
