road music

so, we did some driving this past weekend - approximately 6 hrs total. i made 3 mp3 cds and i think we went through them all with little repeats. this coming weekend, we'll be on the road for about 30 hrs total. wow! need some music to hold us over. luckily we re-upped our sattelite radio so i can listen to Ellen! at least once. here's some other stuff i hope to listen to and introduce ourselves to:

  • Pearl Jam - new release
  • Band of Horses - (listening to it now and it's nice)
  • Flaming Lips - new release
  • Radiohead - live at the Astoria in London
  • The Streets - new release
  • Russian Futurists
  • The Silver Jews
  • Matisyahu - jewish hip hop
  • Creed - definately
  • Ben Lee
  • Yeah Yeah Yeah's - new release
  • anything BJM of course
  • The Dandy Warhols of course
  • Kansas? Rush? Queensryche? Toto? Jusa Priest? - maybe
  • Cloud Cult - new
  • Beck
  • and much more
Any suggestions? Road music people. Music to drive by. not drive by music.

oh, and don't forget - today, April 18 is when two lanterns were hung from the steeple of the Old North Church in Boston, Massachusetts. Paul Revere, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott ride to warn of impending arrests of Samuel Adams and John Hancock and seizure of weapons. Only Prescott finishes the ride. yay freedom (obvious sarcasm here)

other stuff happened today too i guess.

How about earthquake music? Isnt today the 100th anneversary of the san Francisco quake. Maybe something along the lines of shake rattle and roll-but I am sure there are even better selections out there......
