30 Day Song Challenge - The Sequel: Day 05
Day 05- your favorite song for driving round town with the top down
Except for Chloe, our late and lamented Citroen 2CV, I've never owned a car whose top would go down, but if I did, and if Edinburgh's climate was being kind, I imagine I might play this. If you're going to do a cover version of a classic, getting the originators to provide backing vocals (and to write you a new extra verse) is an exceptionally cool way to go about it. Two bands I love singing the perfect song for Day 05.
Of course, there was also a memorable occasion about twenty-five years back (I can date it because it must have been a car with a cassette tape player) when I was driving around Edinburgh in the middle of summer, not with the top down but with the windows wide open as it was very hot. I was playing this classic track - and I can still remember the WTF? looks I got from passers-by. Awesome. I'm sure it would still have an identical effect.
