Side Tracks

This week's theme is driving songs. Highly subjective, of course, but I'll throw in some of my favorites (by no means all-inclusive). First, a rather obscure crossover:

Lee Roy Parnell's bottle neck slide sound was heavily influenced by Duane Allman, whose band had a few good driving songs such as Jessica and Blue Sky. But this one by Marshall Tucker is better in my opinion, appropriately titled "Take the Highway":

A few more favs: Molly Hatchet, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company, Bob Seger, Alabama and lastly Focus, which could substitute for a strong cup of coffee mixed with one of those energy drinks.
