Life is a Highway
Hi folks, today is Day 9 of Thea and Viv’s Big Adventure, and today’s theme is a Highway. Today Viv and I are doing separate blogs.
I’ve been going with my gut a lot for this blog tour, and the first thing that popped into my mind with this theme is Tom Cochrane’s classic rock song Life is a Highway.
I love this song—it’s an adrenaline-inducing dance fest for me, and I’ve used it in several playlists for both exercise and for high energy writing times.
My tastes in music are eclectic. I like classic rock, alternative, some hip hop, a very little bit of rap, and I create playlists for writing when I’m in the mood to listen to music.
I’m drawn to the new Tim Burton movie release Dark Shadows, with Johnny Depp, for a couple of reasons. One of them is Johnny Depp himself, because I find him hysterically funny in the commercials. The other reason is the movie soundtrack. Every commercial I’ve seen about the movie has had awesome fun music.
(The San Francisco Chronicle has a fun review here that touches on the music a little)
I think I’m going to have to buy that movie soundtrack.
Here are some songs that are currently on my current playlist for writing. Many on this particular list are classic, some are newer, and a few are downright dirty. But they all have one thing in common—they give me a pump of high energy for whatever I’m working on.
Lonely Boy—The Black Keys
Howlin’ for You—The Black Keys
Sexy Back—Justin Timberlake
My Sharona—The Knack
Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezing—Journey
Gold on the Ceiling—The Black Keys
Lido Shuffle—Boz Scaggs
Jive Talkin—The Bee Gees
Keep the Customer Satisfied—Simon and Garfunkel
Baby Did a Bad Bag Thing—Chris Isaak
Stuck in the Middle with You—Stealer’s Wheel
Jungle Love—Steve Miller Band
Nutbush City Limits—Tina Turner
