So I’m driving down the road today when I notice this red Volkswagon Jetta with Oregon liscence plates. At every light and stop sign, the driver seems to be seriously rocking out to whatever music he was listening to. I saw him air guitaring it, almost complete headbanging, singing along, and air drumming. He was having such a good time! I wanted to follow him to where ever it was he was going just to ask him what music he was listening to. It looked way too enjoyable.
I used to have a tape that Jerkfaced Liar made for me back in high school titled “Car Music”. It had all our favorite songs for road trips and such. Actually, I still have the tape, somewhere. Anyway, it’s full of everything: U2, the Pogues, Violent Femmes, the Beatles, and one of my favorite songs ever: “American Pie” (“And the marching band refused to yeild!”). There’s a ton (that’s “tonne” for all you Canucks) of music that I dn’t know who it is to this day, but when I happen to hear the song on the radio, I love it. I love car music.
Now that we have iTunes, I’d like to download some new music. I want to make a new Car Music CD. Taking suggestions. What song makes you totally rock out in the car right now? I’m really liking “Holiday” by Green Day, but don’t necessarily want just the popular stuff that is constantly on the radio.
