There’s nothing quite like a good rood trip; out the road with a couple of buddies, shooting the shit, listening to some good tunes and blaming your farts on manure out in the fields.
On the other hand though, there’s nothing shittier than driving for an extended amount of time on your own.
It’s boring, lonely, and no one laughs at your farts that sound like when you jump in Super Mario…
Since I live in a remote city like Wingham, I often have to drive to different towns to enjoy some bigger city living…including strip clubs.
So when I am on the road and on my own I try to come up with ways to pass the time.
Recently I had a short drive back to Wingham from London and I bored out of my fuckin skull. I remember thinking “How in the hell do truckers do this for a living?”
So much so that the only escape is driving an 18-wheeler half way across the country and back.
I’m much like those women; I don’t shut up. As you can probably tell from my blogs, it’s hard for me to stop talking, even if I’m not talking about anything in particular. Most of time I don’t even know where I’m driving the conversation, until we get there and it doesn’t make any sense at all….Cantaloupe.
What I’m trying to get at here is the most important part of a road trip, whether you’re with someone else or not, is definitely the music…
Here are some of the tunes that are perfect while out cruising on the open road…
Runnin’ down a dream- Tom Petty
The guitar rift alone is why this song should be on your iPod playlist. Plus the song’s lyrics are pretty much about some badass road trip that him a buddy “dell” went on. So now I have to find a friend named dell and go on an epic road trip.
Tiny dancer- Elton John
If you’ve seen Almost Famous you know exactly what the fuck I’m talking about.
Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen
Everyone knows the lyrics. Everyone sings the lyrics. Everyone head bangs like there’s no tomorrow at the same part of the song.
Born to be Wild- Steppenwolf
This only applies if you’re having a road trip on a Harley while wearing Jack Nicholson as a backpack.
