30-Day Song Challenge #20: A song that has many meanings to you

Bear with me on this one...



  • It's one hell of a party song.
  • I associate it (still) with watching World Series of Poker coverage on cable.
  • The first year I drove to Burning Man on my own, it was the last song I heard on terrestrial radio before I lost signal heading into Gerlach.

30-Day Song Challenge #16: A song that's a classic favorite

I was struggling with what to choose here...and then I picked the icon for this post and the decision was obvious.

30-Day Song Challenge #13: A song you like from the '70s

I just looked at Billboard's Hot 100 lists from 1970-1979, and boy, can you ever tell I grew up listening to AM radio, because I recognized almost all of them. But here's another one of the songs from the roadtrip mix I'll never be able to put together. The performance is from '82, but the song was originally released in '77, so it totally counts.

30-Day Song Challenge #12: A song from your preteen years

Depending upon how you define "preteen," I could have hit 12 and 13 with the same tune, but I opted to go a different route.

30-Day Song Challenge #11: A song you never get tired of

Not only do I not get tired of it, I once listened to it on repeat for two solid hours...

30-Day Song Challenge #8: A song about drugs or alcohol

I picked this one because I loved the artist's editorial commentary on his drawing style...and then it turned out to be a two-fer on the challenge topic!

30-Day Song Challenge #7: A song to drive to

One of the things that has kept me from making a "driving to BRC" playlist is that there are too many songs that I want to be first. This is one of them.

30-Day Song Challenge #4: A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget

backdated to the point where I was lying in bed last night and realized I'd forgotten to post...

I'm going to try not to duplicate acts too often, but there was really no other choice for this one.



It's been a decade since our last date. It's been at least five years since the last good email address I had for him started returning not-found errors. I said some incredibly hurtful things to him at one point that I've regretted for years, but I quite literally don't even know if he's alive at this point (the men in his family tend to have abbreviated lifespans).

If you're out there somewhere, tiger, I hope you're happy.

30-Day Song Challenge #3: A song that reminds you of summertime

Nothing in particular about the lyrics, but it just feels to me like a song built for cruising the main drag with all the windows open on a blistering hot day.
