Drive Around The Block?

Written by

I like all kinds of music. Yes, I have made a proud living on Country Radio, but most people in my industry like many different styles. Last week, I went to the Doobie Brothers concert at Blossom, and I was reminded of one of my favorite songs of all time!  China Grove - By the Doobies.   BTW I have always been a big DB fan!  It felt good to hear them play it in concert!

I call that song, and others like it,  a "Drive Around The Block Song."  Meaning, if it comes on the radio and I am almost home, I drive around the block to hear it.   It may have the greatest guitar riff ever, and I think it's a great example of American Rock music. Powerful, to the point, driven, honest, and almost infectious. You have to listen....


These songs exist within me for reasons I can't quite fully understand.  Maybe we don't hear them much anymore, or it's the kind of day it is.  Or maybe it takes you back to a great time in your life.  I just know, when on, I'm driving around the block.

I have other "Drive Around The Block Songs"  too.....

Up Down  - Morgan Wallen
After The Lovin' - Englebert Humperdink
Baker Street  - Gerry Rafferty

Startin' With Me  - Jake Owen

Route 101 - Herb Alpert
Small Town USA -  Justin Moore

Still Doin' Time  - George Jones


And the list goes on  -   and is probably too long to list.
