Bob Stroud's Summer Road Trip-- Part 2

Continuing With That Summer Road trip. Gas is on Bob. Thanks Bob!!!

ROLL ON DOWN THE HIGHWAY-- BACHMAN-TURNER OVERDRIVE-- One of the perfect cruising songs.

THE E STREET SHUFFLE-- BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

TOBACCO ROAD-- NASHVILLE TEENS-- Bob said these guys were part of the British Invasion. Were they singing about the UNC-Duke rivalry?

Get Your Kicks on Route 66-- Rolling Stones-- Hey Bob, other groups have done the song. You always play the Stones. How about Chuck Berry's version? The "ULTIMATE" cruising song,but then, I'm a bit of a 66 fan.

MAIN STREET-- BOB SEGER

LOVE STREET-- DOORS-- "Roadhouse Blues" would have been better, but this is good as well. Pretty much anything the Doors did back then was great.

ON BROADWAY-- GEORGE BENSON-- jazzing down that street

THE WALL STREET SHUFFLE-- 10CC-- very innovative band.

THE 59TH STREET BRIDGE SONG (FEELIN' GROOVY)-- SIMON AND GARFUNKEL-- Time to get out of NYC.

COUNTRY ROAD-- JAMES TAYLOR-- That's more like it. Out in the country.

GASOLINE ALLEY-- ROD STEWART

LAKE SHORE DRIVE-- ALIOTA--HAYNES--JEREMIAH-- Let's close it out in Sweet Home Chicago. Did LSD have a double meaning? Actually, US Highway 41 which goes from the Lake Huron shore in the Upper Peninsula all the way to Miami.

Still Wishin' I Could Afford to Cruise. --RoadDog
