Songs That Make Us Sing Saturday

Seeing as how we have an older model car that isn't equipped with Satellite Radio, Hubby and I have a boatload of CD's in the car and we go through a stack of them whenever we're traveling. As is obvious by my music page here on my blog I love all genres of music, but Classic Rock is probably the nearest and dearest to my heart.  I'm sure the other cars that we pass (or that pass us if hubby is driving LOL) must think we're a little bonkers when certain tracks come up.

Hubby's all-time-extra-favorite-band is The Who.  He loved them in the 70's and the love is still alive and kicking. The first two songs are just a sampling of the iconic Who tunes that catapult him into frenzied fits of air guitar, air drums and his best Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend immitations. (No... Not while he's driving) Truth is, I secretly love these moments.  I watch his face and hear his voice, and my mind's eye travels back to a time where I'm sitting in the passenger seat of that old '74 Subaru wagon with a wickedly sticky clutch and more rust than paint, next to that 19 year old guy that I first fell head over heels in love with...  I'm still that girl, by the way.

These next two three songs are just a small sample of my favorites. Sometimes, in my dreams of long ago and far away, I still want to be Ann Wilson of Heart.  How cool was this 70's queen of rock, belting out hit after hit with her sister-queen Nancy, who's wild blonde hair and killer guitar licks were equally as awe inspiring? Heck, they're still about as cool as it gets in the world of music... and dreams.

Speaking of dreams......

Oh, what the hey... Just one more?
