OK, I had to add this one--the tale of a road trip
Alan Jackson's Song (Car) Repair Blues
Or Brian Setzer's '49 Mercury Blues:
S'pose this counts......
So put me on a highway
Show me a sign
Take it to the limit
One more time.
This must be included with a verse like this in it (plus it's a wicked driving song).
Now Daddy ran the whiskey in a big block Dodge
Bought it at an auction at the Mason's Lodge
Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side
Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside
Well him and my uncle tore that engine down
I still remember that rumblin' sound.
One the Steve Earl note:
6 Days On The Road---
On The Road Again---Willie Nelson
Rocky Road To Dublin---various artists
Telegraph Road---Knopfler/Dire Straits
Radar Love---Golden Ering
OK--to go down a weird road with cars --guitars and "music firsts"--??
Rapture --the internet proclaims it as the first song with Rap to make it number one on the pop charts--
car connection ??
.....And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subaru
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
Then, when there's no more cars you go out at night......
.....'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars, get up.....
Then there's the guitar" solo"--
maybe "Rapture" could also be in the internet history books as the only Rap song with a guitar solo ??----not sure on that as I don't listen to much rap.
Adding a few ...
The Kinks - Motorway
Stan Ridgway - Drive, She Said
Guided By Voices - Motor Away
Dave Edmunds & Rockpile - Crawling from the Wreckage
The Cramps - Bend Over, I'll Drive
hehe - that last one ... yeah, it's about cars. Sure it is.
Not to neglect my two wheels, the significance of the pickle, deep.
For good weather daytime road trip highway driving:
For spooky bad weather nighttime driving:
This one is the band name not the song, although the song is about a different type of travel.
He can't tell time but he sure can... drive...
Two Immortals, Robin Williams and Elmer Fudd, Fiy-Wuh
Here's one everyone has already expressed great admiration for (NOT)
[QUOTE="afire, post: 1409397, member: 824"For spooky bad weather nighttime driving:
I could never discern what Morrison was saying, I thought it may be latin, tay gay lah rahl ee day (take a long holiday)
The Weight---The Band
Deadman's Curve---Jan & Dean
Leader of the Pack
Start Me Up---Stones
Willin'---The Band, Linda Ronstadt
Cheers to the one who still remembers that great Stan Ridgway album!
... and who likes what the Cramps know about driving.
Thanks. Big Ridgway fan here, all the way back to WOV days. Speaking of which ...
I don't think anybody's hit on this old John Lee number yet ...
And Tom Waits doing his monologue thing...
