Well here are the first two halves of the Automobile portion of Trains, Planes & Automobile.
Although we commonly call them Cars, lol!
GETTING HOME FOR THANKSGIVING: AUTOMOBILES PT.1
Alright, after playing those Trains & Planes, based on the movie Trains, Planes & Automobiles or something like that, lol, we are caught up and ready for 2008 with Automobiles.
You might say, this year’s model!
By the way, Automobiles are the overwhelming choice for Getting Home For Thanksgiving.
Although not everyone calls them that, as the first song will attest.
A song inspired by road rage incidentally.
Then I am going to do that thing I do to get the creative juices flowing- think of the very first song I ever heard as a kid about whatever topic we are doing.
So you will get to hear that song- and it’s understandable why it would appeal to a little kid- it starts slow and gets faster and it contains a sound effect, lol!
Then a couple of songs that have the same title, but that’s all they have in common.
Then a group I HAD to play, given the topic, and a most appropriate one from them, given said topic.
I will close this opening chapter with a beautiful Love Song To A Car!
Come back for more, we are just getting started…
Here's the link to Pt.1 for what most people call Cars:
GETTING HOME FOR THANKSGIVING: AUTOMOBILES PT.2
Motoring along with our Automobiles bringing us Home For Thanksgiving, I will open with two songs that have something in common.
Although the 2nd song has a surprise ending and kind of turns things around from the first.
Next, I will take a look at Cars being a training ground for seduction and sex- and you better believe that!
Why just the car itself can be seducing for women.
Oh, the ladies do LOVE those cars- and I will musically make my case for that.
I’ll even play a tune about a woman praying for one, lol!
We will end this chapter with an instrumental from 1961, and it comes courtesy of my old vinyl 45 RPM box.
And I hope I don’t have to explain to anyone what 45 RPM means.
It has nothing to do with an Automobile, ok?
Those pops and scratches alone make this worthy of your listening time, lol!
Nah, actually after all those years it sounds pretty damn good!
More cars are coming down the road, so please make a U-turn and come back.
