TLC Travel CD - First Cuts

TLC Travel CD - The First Cuts

By Rebecca the Bookseller

Ok, between the great suggestions on the blog, and the ones they reminded me of, well, let's just say I had to stop at an even 100.

That's enough to get me to Stone Harbor, so I thank you.

Here are the top 25, in case you're interested -

OH - WAIT! What in the HELL is that Johnny Cash song with the lyrics "I've Been Everywhere, Man" - they use it on a hotel commercial.

So - in no particular order, I give you the TLC 2007 Travel CD Top 25:

Let's Get it Started - Black Eyed Peas
Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
These Are the Days - 10,000 Maniacs
Midnight Train to Georgia - Indigo Girls with Gladys Knight
I Don't Need A Man - Pussycat Dolls
Rambin' Man - Allman Brothers
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
America - Neil Diamond
Hotel California - The Eagles
Fun, Fun, Fun - The Beach Boys
I Like It - The Dixie Chicks
You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban
Travelin' Band - CCR
Freeway of Love - Aretha Franklin
Route 66 - I have both the Manhattan Transfer and the Rosemary Clooney Covers
Babylon Sisters - Steely Dan
Car Wash - Rose Royce (remember that one?)
Any Road - George Harrison
Drive My Car - The Beatles (also, if you need it from iTunes, Bobby McFerrin's is good)
Hit The Road, Jack - Ray Charles
Little Red Corvette - Prince
Roll Over Beethoven - ELO
455 Rocket - Kathy Mattea (and don't forget the best title in country music: "Eighteen Wheels and A Dozen Roses")
I Can't Drive 55 - Sammy Hagar
Build Me Up Buttercup - The Foundations
Take Me Riding in My Car - Woody Guthrie
I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones
When I Come Around - Green Day
Mary Chapin Carpenter - couldn't choose between "Passionate Kisses", "Down at the Twist and Shout" and "The Long Way Home" - so I have all three - and Kerry, you are so right about "Stones in the Road"
American Pie - Don McLean
Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
Center Field - John Fogerty
Traffic Jam - James Taylor
Layla - Eric Clapton
Hawaii 5-0
Superhero - Jane's Addiction (Opening theme for Entourage)

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's more than 25. So what? Just be happy I didn't put all 100 of them.

And for the BEST discovery of this Blog - the award goes to Mary for introducing me to Kacey Jones - had to download the entire live album. Highlights include: "Every Man I Love is Either Married, Gay or Dead" and "The Vascectomy Song" - this woman is part comedian, part folk singer - all genius, and the (un)official songstress of the Sweet Potato Queens. Check her out.

OK, 20 Minutes to Sopranos - and I'm taping the MTV Movie Awards. Got to see Jack, though. Love that guy.

I'm glad you liked Kacey Jones. I first heard her on Garrison Keilor's Prairie Home Companion. One title I love is something like, "I keep missing my man . . . .but my aim is getting better," and there are some wonderful songs about her ex-husband from 1-800-Bubba.
I just listened to the last part of Fern Michaels' _Vendetta_, and while vengeance may not be as elevated a response as forgiveness, there is a certain pleasure and catharsis to be gained from the efforts of this Sisterhood.
So much to listen to, so little time. . .

I just went to the Johnny Cash lyrics, and remembered my brother's favorite road song . . . .
"Dead Skunk in the middle of the road, stinking to high heaven."

"Dead Skunk in the middle of the road, stinking to high heaven."
His daughter used to love for him to sing it -- then I taught her some IWW songs, and she would sing, "Put it on the ground, spread it all around, dig it with a hoe, it'll make your flowers grow."
. . .and some kids only know the songs on Barney, poor sheltered tykes . . .

I'll be cruising in my imaginary Sebring convertible along with my imaginary 27yo hunk of a rich boyfriend playing all these cool songs! Thanks Rebecca and everyone who made suggestions. My all time favorite song as a mother and a wife...........

I WANNA BE SEDATED...20, 20, 20, 24 hours a day.........I wanna be sedated!!!!!!!!!!(I'm not kidding.......where's the XANAX people?!!)

Here is an iMix with about 2/3 of the list of 100:

Thanks to everybody for such great suggestions - and Janice - pick me up, will ya?

I haven't heard Kacey Jones, but Christine Lavin does some great songs/comedy. I was first introduced to her through the song Biological Time Bomb and it was down hill from there!!!

I can't be bothered with anything recently. I've just been sitting around doing nothing. Today was a loss. I just don't have much to say. Nothing seems worth thinking about.
