    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.

    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.

    This one is the band name not the song, although the song is about a different type of travel.

    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...
