Cause Never Was the Reason For The Evening: The 52 State Pick-Up Mix Intermission
This week I’m on the road, driving from Seattle to Spokane to Portland and back to Seattle again, I’m conducting live research for the next mixtape entry and didn’t have time to pick music, so please excuse this week’s hiatus – tune in next week for Part 9. A lesser blog would leave you with a clips post or a rerun, but not Fry Butter! As a consolation prize, I give you my top 5 America songs.
The band America. My top five favorite songs by the band, America.
5. Ventura Highway.
Classic or cliche? I’m not sure I care.
4. Sister Golden Hair
This is that song everyone thinks they don’t know, then it gets to the chorus and they sing along.
3. Tin Man
Someday I’ll get to see Snarky’s Machine do her Tin Man dance in person. Until then, I’ll just think about her writing about it, whenever I hear this song.
2. Daisy Jane
I was pumping gas last year and there was music piping softly out of the speakers which I didn’t realize until I was singing outloud. My body filled with joy as I reunited with a song I’d forgotten for a few years. I love the opening beat of highway concrete seams.
1. You Can Do Magic
I will walk into any karaoke bar in any city at any hour of the day and throw down this jam stone cold sober while waiting for my drink order to get filled. (Enjoy the aquarium, too.)
See you next week!
