    "Why would I want to play music?"

    This is why.

  8. The greatest live band ever...IMHO
    If you never saw them live, you won’t understand.

    This song is banned from my radio .... last time I listened to it, I just got out of a night school collage course, was cruising home at 9:00 pm. I was driving my ot Triumph spitfire with a Toyota engine and a 7" pro stock hood scoop... freeway was empty ... I opened her up to 90-100 mph and cruising, Next thing I know another car was in the next lane and we cruised this way for 5 or 6 miles side by side.... not racing, just cruising.
    This song is now banned from my radio.

    We know that rock and roll has deep roots in rhythm and blues... as well as other genres.
    This is one of the best illustrations of that that I know of. Check out Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Such a classy lady. Her background is mainly in gospel music. But she plays a mean electric guitar.
    Man, can she ROCK!
    Here's a compilation of some of her guitar solos.

     
  18. The Swell Maps- Let's Build A Car

    No more pushing, let's go and build a car,
    We're ready for the fly-past, another slow film.
    Waiting for a minor change, at last the scenery,
    Always saving up to listen to some fiction,
    Try to buy a castle but there's no windows left,
    I don't mind a breakout but there's never enough time.
    Whatever you are saving for,
    At least know what you're waiting for.
    Don't try pushing, we'd rather buy a car,
    Just waiting for the pictures in some line.
    It's an easy catch in a courtyard when you're trying too hard,
    Always waiting up in case the patterns break,
    Try to catch that look that the others left,
    I don't mind a breakout but there's never enough time.
    Whatever you are saving for,
    At least know what you're waiting for.
    Don't try pushing, we'd rather buy a car,
    And all the girls in Manchester couldn't steal a car.
    Medieval crosses out but it catches you in time,
    Always waiting up in case there's another invasion,
    Try to buy a castle but there's no windows left,
    I don't mind a breakout but there's never enough time.
    Whatever you are saving for,
    At least know what you're waiting for.



    Swell Maps- Midget Submarines

    Solid in those waters
    You were shattered and you lost your name
    Cutting lines you shot the channel
    Pushing out the galleons
    In a midget submarine
    Midget submarine
    So much like escape
    Sleeping in a moving train
    With ammunition and the other guns
    Diving out of games
    With all those stens and always so amazed
    In a midget submarine
    Midget submarine
    It's all escape
    Sitting there in fashion
    Just so pretty, so real, amazed
    Cases of the cargo
    All in canvas with galleons and tanks
    In a midget submarine
    Midget submarine
    It's all escape
    In a midget submarine
    Midget submarine
    It's all escape

  20. Wall of Voodoo's Call of the West is a great driving album. "Mexican Radio" was overplayed.

  21. Check out the traditional sideburns.

    It's impressive when a three-piece band kicks out the jams.

    Wow, some really great tunes! Thank you all for sharing, I'm loving all of it. Special mention to @nochop for William Clark - Blowing Like Hell, wow, really a surprise to see somebody pull that one up. WC was, or rather IS an icon in the So Cal blues scene. Great choice man. And @Rickybop , dude, you've got some great tunes, thanks for posting those.

    OK, here's an old standby for me, Ive posted it before, but if we're talking about hot rod tunes, this one has to be part of the discussion:

    And of course, the late great Smokey Wilson, this song kicks so much ass:

    This one is pretty new relatively speaking but it makes you want to turn it up and drive too fast.

  27. What song/ songs make me wanna drive my hot rod? That is the question. Well, as Molly Hatchet used to say, I’m traveling down the road and I’m flirting with disaster. And if that don’t work, I can’t get no satisfaction.
