Okay, so I got a new car last week, my first in well over a decade. Color me a little excited.
In honor of the occasion, I’m posting a week of musical palate cleansers with a driving theme to them. Kicking off the festivities is a song I played the hell out off when I was on the radio in college, The Modern Lovers’ “Roadrunner”.
I know Jonathan Richman is something of an acquired taste, but The Modern Lovers is a stone cold classic, quintessential American rock and roll. You could say the same thing about driving, which makes this song a perfect start to the week.
(By the way, if you don’t mind, please hold off on your driving tunes suggestions until Friday. I’ve already got the week’s other four videos ready to go and you can load up then. Feel free to comment about Richman and the Lovers now, though.)
