A Car-Themed Podcast

Rusty Old Chevy

Cars, trucks, buses. They’ve been around since the early 19th century and have historically been super-prevalent in everyday life. The connection between the automobile and music probably stems from the feeling of freedom brought on by the driving of a car. Freedom = rebellion, which is what the early songs that mention cars are about. Big engines, driving fast, making out in the backseat; these were some of the themes of songs. Anyway, regardless of why people started singing songs about cars, there is no question that the link is there. Today’s podcast takes a look at that link. Enjoy.

This week’s podcast was comprised of these exhaust-drenched tracks:

Chuck Berry – No Particular Place to Go ++ Derek Trucks Band – Chevrolet ++ Wilson Pickett ++ The Beatles – Drive My Car ++ Cake – Stickshifts and Safetybelts ++ Duane Allman – No Money Down ++ Bob Dylan – From a Buick 6 ++ The Gourds – Fine Leather Truck ++ Janis Joplin – Mercedez Benz ++ The Beach Boys – 409 ++ Wilco – Bull Black Nova ++ The Clash – Brand New Cadillac ++ Bo Diddley – Cadillac ++ War – Low Rider ++ Elizabeth Cook – El Camino ++ Old 97’s – Bel Air ++ The Gaslight Anthem – Old White Lincoln ++ The Gourds – Get Your Kicks On Route 66
