So I'm taking some time off and making a little road trip. Unlike Jake and Elwood Blues (check out the clip below) though, my trip is a wee bit longer than 106 miles. I'm heading to Orlando for my daughter's dance competition. And yes, my wife volunteered me to drive the truck loaded with stage props. And yes, my in-laws are riding with me. In the U-Haul. On the bench seat.
Let me be clear, I love my in-laws dearly. We get along great today and I fully expect that statement to hold true when we roll into Bonnet Creek. But I'm gonna need a freaking awesome playlist to get me through this trip. I'm open to suggestions, so hit me in the comments and let me know your thoughts.
Here's the short list I've already come up with..
- "Momma Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J
- "I Can't Drive 55" - Sammy Hagar
- "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson
- "The Road Goes on Forever" by Robert Earl Keen (one of my personal favorites)
