Spring Break road trip

SIDE A

1. Foghat “Slow Ride” – Would it kill ya ta play some Foghat?

2. Hazzard County Boys “Good Ol’ Boys” – Jump in the General Lee and speed away from Boss Hog.

3. Primus “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” – “One too many cold beers, one night wrapped his car ’round a telephone pole … Go!”

4. Coolio “Fantastic Voyage” – Remember Coolio’s Fairy Funkfather who turned the bike into a lowrider so Coolio could go to the beach?

5. Cake “Satan Is My Motor” – Speaks for itself.

6. The Doobie Brothers “China Grove” – Hey, by placing the Doob here we’re not telling you to smoke out while driving! Wait till you get there.

7. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers “Runnin’ Down a Dream” – By now it should warm enough to roll down the window and crank this one.

8. Jan and Dean “Dead Man’s Curve” – A morbid end to side A, but damn it, you needed a reminder to drive safe!

SIDE B

9. The Rev. Horton Heat “Big Red Rocket of Love” – Psychobilly freakout indeed.

10. Steppenwolf “Born To Be Wild” – Dennis Hopper may be old, but you are young. Pedal to the metal!

11. Skee-Lo “I Wish” – “I got an 8-track and a spare tire in the back, but that’s flat.” Bummer, dude.

12. Beach Boys “Little Deuce Coupe” – Do you think Ford gave Brian Wilson a free car for penning this one? The beach is getting close.

13. Patti Smith “Redondo Beach” – Ironic that rebel Patti Smith raised her kids in WASP haven Grosse Pointe. Good tune though.

14. The Ramones “California Sun” – The fathers of punk tear up the surf-rock classic by the Rivieras. You should drive faster, much faster

15. Weezer “Surf Wax America” – You remember when Weezer still mattered, right … Right?

16. Golden Earring “Radar Love” – Just play this one on repeat the whole way home. You’ll make kickass time.
