This is my entry into this month’s PHC Top 3 contest.

This months topic is Road Trip Music

My Nominations are:

Talking Heads

My Reasons for the Nomination

One of my all time favorite songs is 'Road to Nowhere' It just sets the pace for where ever we are headed. Of course the husband thinks I'm nuts and that's fine with me. The beat in itself is great for a road trip. You can bounce or bob your head. I always feel like I am a road to nowhere.

Well we know where we're going
But we don't know where we've been
Talking Heads is a standard in my travel library.


My Reasons for the Nomination

There is just something to strong lyrics, beautiful vocals and belting out along with them at 3 am to stay awake. I have various albums by Journey but Time3 (time cubed) It is one of the best compilations out there which gives a complete a history of a band.

The girl can't help it, she needs more
He hasn't found what he's lookin' for
They're still standing in the rain
He can't help it, and she's just that way

Stone Temple Pilots

My Reasons for the Nomination

LOUD and easy to BELT out. Isn't that what you want for road trip music? Besides there is something about Scott Weiland's voice that has struck a chord within me. Regardless of the song, you can feel the bittersweetness that became his life.

Leavin' on a southern train
Only yesterday you lied
Promises of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time go by

I hope you enjoyed my choices. Yes, I usually pick a sound I want not always a particular song. I want what I know I can sing with, yet just chill and listen to without getting bored. When I drive distance, I love to sing. The hubby gets tired of it, but I don't care. The songs I chose from each one are among my favorite to sing. Mostly due to being in my range, but I love the composition overall.

Man, you all never disappoint with your choices! Awesome roundup @tryskele! My mom was a big Journey fan, so we listened to them a lot in the car as kids. Steve Perry has such an iconic voice. Talking Heads is a band I don't think I've listened to much, but if I did I'd probably realize how much I enjoy their library of music. And of course as a teenager in the '90's, grunge was definitely my thing! I think the first CD I ever bought was Stone Temple Pilots. 😊

The first record I ever bought was Journey 'Escape.' I saved up my babysitting money. I still have it packed away in a box. Talking Heads I find it's an acquired taste so many don't like them or the like songs like Burning Down the House which is not one of my favorites. STP was therapy music. It came at one of the worst times in my life. Weiland's voice transcends. I saw a video recently where a voice coach reviewed the acoustic version of 'Plush' she said she could meditate to that version. I thought about it and I definitely could.

Great choices! I wonder if you might include some Alice in Chains songs if the list was longer?

Oh most definitely. Disturbed is another usual one too

Good choices for a road trip.

Great choices! Havent heard of the first 2 but I have the last one and I just love that song! The singer has a nice deep voice that I like. Thank you for taking the time to participate in this contest!
