The Magical Mystery Tour: The Geo Metro Takes on Interstate 15

Four days ago I ventured from my now hometown to “return” to my childhood hometown .

Part experiment/part insanity/part grace I am going to be spending six weeks with Mike and Rena (photoblog!photoblog!). It’s going to be awesome! The theme: music. Oh, and work my tail off writing grants and getting the web series pilot ready. Right.

-At the moment I am working with one of the uber-talented members of Die Stille on what could turn out to be a soundtrack for this project. I write the lyrics and they compose the rockin tunes which I will sing with when I return to Italy in November. I’ve already hired my Dad to write the lyrics to one of the songs. Isn’t that dreamy?

-My mom, a piano/voice teacher who now works in development will return, after 23 years, to giving me piano lessons. Maybe this time it will stick! If all else fails, I will go to the Folk Music Center and grab a kazoo to master.

Before leaving, while packing up my room I found this little treasure that a friend of mine gave me my sophomore year in college.

Inside it are contained an archive of mostly scratched but still salvageable CD’s from 1995 to 2006, many of them mix CD’s (yes, Ani DiFranco and Dave Mathews made appearances on more than one collection).

Here are some of the songs I listened to on the trip (not in any order):

1. Beck’s Elevator Music

2. Nina Simone Feeling Good

3. Paula Cole Feelin Love

4. Beatles Oh Darlin

5. Radiohead Optimistic

6. Louis Prima Angelina

7. John Lee Hooker Boom! Boom!

8. Bill Monroe I’m Workin’ on a Building

9. Jelly Roll Morton King Porter Stomp

10. Jill Scott Do You Remember Me

And many more…After Vegas I started to melt…down. It was hot the the Metro doesn’t believe in A/C. The windows rolled down made it difficult to have a conversation on the phone and I was really tired of music. Until I put this baby in:

Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Good Vibrations

For some reason that song, along with others on the Pure Party CD I stole from my sister in ’99, made everything right with the world.

What’s your favorite driving music? Tell us here.
