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.
