Anyone that’s read my blog for a while knows I like to dance. Sometimes I crank up the music in my car and have a blast! Yeh, I definitely sing my heart out, but sitting in the driver’s seat doesn’t prevent me from dancing up a storm, too. A favorite song gets me shifting in my seat, waving my arms, slapping the steering wheel like a drum, putting my foot on the clutch to change gears, and then stepping on the gas pedal. Vrooooom,7 vroom, vroooom, vroom, vroom, errrrrrt!
I have plenty of favorite songs from classical to jazz to rock and roll, but there are a few that are just especially made for driving. Do you want to hear my all-time favorite car jamming tunes? I bet a lot of you know them by heart already? To listen to them at the volume I sing them, turn the volume way up, my friend. Perhaps if you heard my voice you’d start howling, but alone in my closed car window world I’ve got a voice as cool as they come. You’d better believe the passing cars and those behind me think I’m super loopy. But I don’t care one iota. I’m having fun!
Sometimes while the song is playing I’m approaching my home destination. I’m not yet ready to stop the party so I go down to the end of the street and do a loop de loop. Sometimes a new great song starts just after the last, so you might find me circling the neighborhood until the good ones pass. At that time I turn off the radio and finally head home. I pull into my garage with my heart beating fast, sit still a few moments and recover from the rush.
