I bring the youth of America home from sophomore year of college tomorrow.
I put this playlist together to cover the three hour drive to the school…
They get to choose the ride home list.
Whipping Post (Live) The Allman Brothers Band
Cowgirl In the Sand (Live)Neil Young
Desolation Row Bob Dylan
Sultans of Swing (Live) Dire Straits
Matty Groves Fairport Convention
Madame George Van Morrison
Ball and Chain (Live) Big Brother & The Holding Company
Mortal City Dar Williams
Three O’Clock Blues B.B. King & Eric Clapton
Amen Leonard Cohen
Sugaree (Live) Grateful Dead
Layla Derek & The Dominos
When the Music’s Over The Doors
Blackstar David Bowie
Purple Rain Prince & The Revolution
New York City Serenade Bruce Springsteen
These particular versions (many live) actually give me 30 minutes extra in case of traffic jams.
Sunrise over Queens, New York.
