Suzanne's Soundtrack Sunday
The other day, I was on the interstate driving and grooving to the iPod. It was a rare trip alone, so I had the stereo cranked to a mix I'd made for the last job. On comes a song that makes me want to turn it up to 11. It is a perfect 'road tune', but that makes sense, because the whole album screams Road Trip to me.
What song? "The Camera Eye" by Rush. Driving drum beats, moving and lyrical bass. It's eleven minutes of "I'd better not be stuck in traffic for this" music! Now, most people would say that "YYZ", also off the Moving Pictures album is a better example of music for driving. I agree that it's good, but I lean towards that former.
I like to use music while driving. Most of the time, it's to sing along, but sometimes, it helps to clear the head when I'm stressed out. I don't know what I'd do without a stereo in the car when I'm stuck in a traffic jam. My Type A shows when that happens. Thankfully, I've got the iPod to plug in and calm me down when I can keep moving.
How about you? Have you got a favorite disc for road trips?
