    Johnny Cash’s Dukes of Hazard theme song (only if your horn plays Dixie and you have some good shocks)

    I thought Waylon Jennings did that song.

    Raena, oh yes, King of Spain should be up there too (both it and Lazy Boy are on the album “Bargainville”—another good full disc to have in the car). Everytime it gets to “Let’s make Friday part of the weekend / and give every new baby a chocolate eclair” I can’t help but smile—plus, the song’s in my register!

    “Temple of Low Men” is another excellent and often overlooked album—and now I’ve got to go blow the dust off my H+C “Fate” disc and give it a listen.

    Retro, that one Golden Earring song? C’mon, they’ve got two! Radar Love and Twilight Zone (I may keep CDs that don’t get stuck in a player for years at a stretch, but my “Golden Earring Greatest Hits” disc got dumped on the used pile at Cheapos. Too depressing how they had two standout tracks coupled with many shovels of filler.)

    How is there a Tragically Hip fan in Texas, anyway.  I’m from the Northeast and they are huge up here, but in Buffalo we get the Toronto radio stations so that’s how we all got to know them.

    Ah, I guess I took the “From: ” section in my profile too literally. I currently live in Texas - but was born, raised, and have spent almost my whole life in the fine city of Chicago. Not missing the winters, that’s for sure.

    Sample Road Trip (after work departure) - Full Albums

    To get things going:
    Alice in Chains, Unplugged
    Nirvana, Nevermind
    Pixies, Doolittle (I always have a hard time waiting to the end for Gouge Away)

    Dusk:
    Tragically Hip, Fully Completely
    Pavement, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
    Beatles, White Album

    Middle of the night:
    Pink Floyd, Animals
    Radiohead, OK Computer
    Moby, Everything Is Wrong
    The Cure, Seventeen Seconds & Pornography
    Joy Division, Closer

    Dawn (with coffee):
    Mozart, Symphony no. 41
    Beethoven’s 7th
    Antonio Carlos Jobim, Jazz Classics
    Steely Dan, The Royal Scam

    That does make sense then, to be sure.  Ever get a chance to see them live?  If not, and you do, definitely go see them.  Gord is a crazy man, but they put on a kickin’ show.

    I used to love driving from Bath to London at 100mph listening to the oratorio Jeptha by GF Handel. Terrific driving music.

    Happy days.

    Currently in the CD player as I type is La Ouache, by Matmatah, a French/Breton group that sound a bit like Big Country. Particularly good is Lamb? An Dro.

    And I would just like to say how ashamed I am that I know that, too.
