When I asked my son to share his favorites on Spotify, his face lit up a bit. We have a history of car-ee-oke on the way to school. We have a few songs we listened to over and over - so much that we learned to sing a long.
The Devil Went Down to Georgia - by the Charlie Daniels Band
There's so much imagery in this song - the Devil went 'down' to Georgia - was he coming from Minnesota? Connecticut? Canada?
In discussions about where the Devil may like to hang out, Ontario Canada doesn't come to mind for this California boy.
I enjoy driving. I like the road noise and the music or audiobook. I like time with my thoughts while my brain is distracted by the motion outside the vehicle while I'm safe inside.
For that reason, I enjoy the visuals in the Hotel California by the Eagles - on a dark, desert highway, cool wind in my hair. Thought it seems, no matter how many times we listened to that song, we never got those first drum beats correct. It feels like the more you listen, the sooner they should come - because, well, we already know the song is coming, what's the mystery? Just give us the intro already.
What's a song you can listen to over and over - maybe while you work? Or what's one that takes you back to a childhood memory?
