I am funny in that, I have some quirks that probably aren't very noticeable to most, but one of them is taking things literally. So, when I see a contest that asks for a list of 3 favorite things, (of any type or class), I normally would only respond if I actually have such a list of 3 favorites in the category, or if I can honestly compose the list. If I don't have either, I do not feel right entering a list that doesn't meet the criteria or the spirit of the request.
So I replied this morning to a question asked in a post by @nickyhavey, as to why the reader hasn't entered, as it's the last day to do so, and kind of explained this quirk of mine as to why I haven't entered. In the reply I did acknowledge that I do know ONE road trip-type song, which is the 99 bottles of beer song which we all know, and which I expected to be in literally everyone's list, but most I've looked at exclude it.
So, for roadtrip songs that are my favorite road trip songs, there is this one alone:
Of course, since the request is for a list of THREE favorite road trip songs, and the fact that I only know of one, the other two I am listing are just two of my favorite songs period. I realize this is not fulfilling the requested entry of road trip songs, but I am being led to believe it is okay. So here is one of my "un-categorized favorite" songs:
I've decided to get a little "clever" with my third and last song, which is truly one of my ALL-TIME favorite songs. A song that I fell in love with the very first time I heard it, many many moons ago, and the song also includes "99." In fact, that's its name! :)
I hope that my cheating in this contest isn't taken too harshly, as I was "coerced" into making this post! Really! I was!
