I will agree with that - and they have a formula - i will say though for the 'sound' they have - they hae really changed how they do arragments and other things that i really enjoy - but there are other bands that get stuck too -

The last NIN album i enjoyed because it's different - there are things that are NIN - but there's a more smooth sound and it allows other things to 'pop' in the landscape.

Unfortunately, I feel lukewarm the new NIN's work to be honest..

It's rigid at parts and the sound is really recycled to me. It's feel like darker and more mechnical version of Fragile, but not as versatile or good to me. I can't feel any mood or emotion coming out that album.

I thought Fragile was very underrated, but With Teeth has been a what Fragile has been to most fans to me so far.

I guess for me "with teeth" i hear alot of stuff that i feel is a throwback and the studio work and the changes in textures is like 'class' to me.

I think the fragile was supurb - lots of good stuff in there -

I also love type O negative though - i like how they can make some beautiful goth music - the keys add such a nice soft touch, while being haunting - they def. do some homage to the beatles with their use of melody -

I listen to ANYTHING - i have some bands i like alot - and others i listen too for education - For one, i love the dandy warhols, i think they are the BEST american band in terms of potential - but my fav. at the time is the 'kings of leon' -

Haha yea, I listen to everything too.

But I ain't a musician so that limits me in certain aspects.

Currently I'm at a neutral state where I have no inclination toward a band.

Type O'negative is great stuff dude. Kill all the white people got my attention ,then I got in to their stuff.

I don't wanna be me is a staple lifting song for me also.

Nothing that NIN has done has come close to ecoing the creativity or textural diversity of The Downward Spiral. The mechanical darkness of that album is so tangible that its creepy. The opening measures of "Reptile" will make you turn on a light in a dark room.

That album is really a quality work from a musical standpoint.

Speaking of TypeO - with kill all the white people - made me remember Phil - i have the Pantera DVD"s and it's AMAZING how many people/bands they toured with and all the stuff i'd seen - etc -

Like when jerry cantrell (AIC) had a pink beard, he did that when they did some touring with pantera - when tommy lee had his hair cut, pantera did that too - just funny to look back on that stuff -

I've seen typeO play at the troc in philly on halloween before - good times -

I also went to see danzig/samhain reunion tour - that was actually alot of fun.

Different strokes I guess, Tool has been my favorite band since 1994 and I still cannot get enough of every song. I still listen to their 5 CD's on a regular basis and tend to go through withdrawls if I take a few days off of hearing Tool.

I've been listening to The Kinks a lot lately. Highly underrated band. They got over shadowed in the British Invasion craze by bands like The Beatles and the Stones, but their best stuff stands up well with anybody. Their only really big America hits were "You've Really Got Me" and "Lola", and it's a shame.

Something Else By The Kinks is every bit as good as Revolver, IMHO. The Village Green Preservation Society, Face to Face, and Muswell Hillbilies are also stellar classics. Novices may want to start with The Kink Kronkikles, an excellent overview of their most fertile period during the late 60s-early 70s.

If you want to whet your appetite with some individual songs, try any of the following: "Waterloo Sunset", "Shangri-La", "Get Back In Line", "Oklahoma USA" (Yo La Tengo does an excellent cover of this), "This Is Where I Belong", "Days", "Dead End Street"...Jesus, I could could go on and on.

I'll have to check that out. It seems like people either LOVE Weckl or hate him. I love him. Especially his sound. I don't think there is a better sounding drum set out there. The way he plays and tunes everything, his toms just sing. Plus with his unique style, you can tell who it is playing from the second he plays his first note.

VINNIE! Absolutley love Vinnie. Every drummer should get "The UnReel Drum Book". It's a SERIOUS in-depth look at his playing on Randy Waldman's "UnReel" album (damn good album IMO).

Yep - Vinnie is the man.

I used to go listen to him play once a month or so at a little club in North Hollywood with a group that featured Michael Landau on guitar, Greg Mathieson on keys, and Abraham Laboriel Sr. (the father of the guy who's playing drums with McCartney) on bass. Talk about an ass whoopin!'

Bozzio's just a freak of nature. Period. I think my favorite drummer though is Steve Smith. I don't know why, but there's just something about his playing that I really dig. He was one of the guys who I really studied my frosh year of college. The main guy was Elvin Jones though. It all starts with him.

Smith is pretty solid. I'm a rock drums guy, so I'm partial to that genre. I like Stuart Copeland and Carter Beauford. Neil Peart is fun of course. Manu Katche is interesting to me because of his use of cymbals. I think that Bill Bruford is probably my all-time fave though.

NICE! I actually got the Zep box set recently. I only had the first four, and the box set was cheaper than buying the other 6 albums.

I was at Finest! CD's in Greeley on Thursday and they had a few Dave Grusin CD's for only $4 (used). Had to support an alum of my University. I also picked up Wilco's "Killing Television!

I am among the few who believe that their second album was even better than the first. Most reviews claimed they stuck with the formula of Is This It?, but I have no clue what album those folks were listening to. The second album was a bit darker and had much more of a Cure feel to it, whereas the first album went heavy on the Television influence (run through a pop filter). I'm excited to see if they continue to evolve on the new disc.

I seen the second album as a companion piece to the first...an extention really, equally as strong and well written.

I've been disappointed thus far by First Impressions Of Earth....I'll have to give a complete review of it later but for now I'll say I really like about half the album while the other half seems either substandard or just trying too hard to be weird. There's a overwhelming sense of boredom throughout the disc and one has to wonder about the release date as well.......I mean, wouldn't you wanna release a new album before Xmas instead of right after it? I know it's a reach of a theory here, but it could be reflective of them not believing in the material because this sounds like a barrel scraping.....maybe they're tapped out songwise, who knows?

Whatever it is, it won't be enough to send them back to the clubs....Europe doesn't seem to care anyways as the European tour is totally sold out. I'd love to see this band live, but I don't do arena shows anymore so I guess I'll wait for the inevitable live DVD Ha!

Good call @ Chamillionaire. That CD is great.

I like the Biggie CD a lot, although I've heard some people say they think it's lame. To each their own I suppose.

I really like the Purp CD, as well as the Funkmaster Flex one. I've been a Trick Trick fan for a while now, I follow the Detroit underground as close as I can. He's been getting a lot of run because he's hooked up with Eminem, which is definately good for him. Check out his CD.

I've been pounding this CD for a couple of weeks now trying to put my finger on why it's a step down from their first two releases. Admittingly, it's very difficult, if not downright impossible, for any group to maintain such unbelievably high standards and expectations.....but I expected better than what was given to us this time around.

There is some great material here. Songs such as "You Only Live Once", "Juicebox", "Evening Sun" & "Red Light" are all up to the usual standards and could set comfortably on either Is This It? or Room On Fire. "You Only Live Once" in particular is vintage Strokes, while "Juicebox" has everything an alternative single should have (a meancingly fast bassline, soaring bridges, distortion, above average lyrics).

The release bogs down after the opening salvo of those two tracks however. "Heart In A Cage", "On The Other Side", "Fear Of Sleep" and "Vision Of Division" waste good riffs on half-formed songs and very questionable lyrics. Casablancas vocals are a source of irritation for the very first time as well. His singing style sinks "On The Other Side" while adding to the seemingly forced experimentation that leads the band into some of it's worst songs to date (See "Killing Lies").

"Razorblade" is an arty trainwreck. Stumbling instrumtation around an arrhythmic drumbeat who's chorus is sung in a style that directly rips off Barry Manilow's "Mandy". If that wasn't bad enough, you then encounter the ultra-annoying "Ask Me Anything" two tracks later. It's main function appears to be just a cello playing Yo La Tengo's "Big Day Coming" riff at different octaves while Casablancas sings "I've got nothing to say" over and over and over again. He also hits lyrical rock bottom on the track with the immortal line "Don't be a coconut, God is trying to talk to you"....IMO, his poetic licence should be damn near revoked over that one.

Overall, a very frustrating and disappointing album. Hardcore fans will love it no doubt and there are certainly worse things to purchase, but this is a transitional disc. As with most transitional releases, some of it works, some of it fails and some of it should've never been attempted in the first place. Hopefully, some of the expirments attempted here will be more fully developed and realized on future releases.

Ona scale of zero to five stars......it barely gets three.

One of the jazz classics I picked up is Thelonius Monk with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall. It was just discovered in 2005 hidden in the library of congress and represents some of the best jazz you'll ever hear. It was a 1957 live recording. Incredible stuff.

Thanks for the tip on Rodrigo.

I got a tip on Dhjanjo Rheinhard. I can't believe this guy was making this kind of guitar music back in the 30's. (John McLaughlin mentioned him as a source of inspiration.)

I love the Blues. Elmore James, Blind Willie Johnson, Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, Taj Mahal, Little Walter, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Bo Diddly, Johnny Lee Hooker, and Mississippi John Hurt. (Some of Harmonica but mostly guitar)

I got a tip from the Orange Mane about Buddy Guy and I have not been disappointed. I have to start remembering names better to say thanks proper.

Very good list of blues you have there.....if I may, I have a couple of recommendations for you that you can check out or not as you please.

I really like my blues as raw as unpolished as I can get it....that's just my personal preference mind you...I like lush arrangements and big backing bands as much as anyone, so I'm not saying it's bad or anything, just I tend to perfer minimalist backing when it comes to blues. So, I'd recommend the following to you off the cuff:

Hound Dog Taylor : either Hound Dog Taylor And The Houserockers or Natural Boogie...the live Beware Of The Dog is great as well, but I'd start with the first two before getting to that...just in case.
JB Hutto And The Hawks: Hawk Squat
R.L. Burnside: Too Bad Jim
Junior Kimbrough: All Night Long
Sonny Boy Williamson II: His Best

Based on the artists you listed above, you should have no problem at all with what I listed. I know Slap is deeply schooled in the blues, I'd go with anything he suggests as well.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the heads up Hogan. Any playlist anybody puts down is all good.

I got Sonny Boy boxed set on my list of things to do. I'm just really scratching the surface of blues. I'm not familiar with all the names you mentioned. What surprises me is the depth and range of blues guys I've never heard of.

I like my blues so raw it's like right out of the hen house. I like blues old as I can find it.

I like Son House and Skip James but I don't think I've found everything that is out there. This can't be all of it. Guys like Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and Wilson Pickett start to make more sense the more I create the connections.

The more I listen. The more I hear. Go figure.

I circled a boxed set of Johnny Cash stuff in honor of Slap. WTH

I stumbled across Norah Jones. She's got that sweet baby girl blues. Really love her warm sexy tones. Billie Holiday would scare the crap out of her.

Etta James, Mavis Staples, and some of the other Blues divas are starting to come into focus. Don't have a clue whose out there but I'm looking.

I've tried to learn about Arabic music but Um...No.

About 15 years ago an Iranian woman I knew turned me on to this singer:

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin have mentioned her as an influence on some of their more exotic-sounding music.

To the aforementioned list of names I would add:

Freddy King
Albert King
Albert Collins
Johnny Copeland
Fenton Robinson
Muddy Waters
John Lee Hooker

I could never get into Albert King and I don't know why. Muddy Waters and Johnny Lee Hooker are awesome. I didn't realize how much music Muddy made until recently. I was trying to find a boxed set of B.B. King and I guess there is just too much stuff out there for it.

Thanks for the two new blues guys.

I am finding when I poke around in the Jazz realms there are some incredible guys who only made maybe two LP's. I didn't realize heroin wiped out so many good musicians. (Sonny Clark)

I did not realize how important Fletcher Henderson was.

Bud Powell, Johnny Griffen, Ben Webster and Art Tatum are guys I am just discovering. Art Tatum I found through Ray Charles. I thought I knew Ray Charles. I did'nt. Sonny Clark I found him while checking in Miles. I didn't realize how good Louie Armstrong was.

I have been a huge fan of Herbie Hancock but had no idea how many places he's been. He's like Santana always there somewhere.

I thought Wayne Shorter was good Sax player from Weather Report.

The irony is having been around a lot of their music, seeing them, and not knowing really how incredible they were. It's wierd to look back and realize how important one player really was. It's a strange as saying I hung out with Jesus. He had stinky feet and ate too many Jalapenos. Who knew?!

If you listened to Arabic music everyday it's more addictive than trance. You can just get lost in it if you wanted to. Arab people are like a living musical. It's wierd to see guys willing to dance at the drop of a hat. We are angry! Let us dance! We are happy! Let us dance! I love my goat! Let us dance!

Americans are like clods when it comes to dancing. Latins, Italians, Africans, Chinese, and even big clunky Germans can dance better than us as big fat ugly generality. I'd love to see some of the dances from the swing era come back into vogue just for grins.

FYI: Salsa dancing is great

Speaking of jazz legends, I just watched one of my favorite DVDs last night:

"'Round Midnight" with Dexter Gordon (award-winning score by Herbie Hancock.)

If you like bebop, then this is an essential film, IMO.

It's about an American jazz sax player (played by Dexter Gordon) living in Paris. He's waging a battle with the bottle and with failing health, and then he meets a Parisian fan who inspires him to clean up his act and to make one last comeback.

Great story with a great vibe - I highly recommend it.

Haven't listened to this CD in years, finally had "Kill you" stuck in my head so I busted it out of the CD collection and popped it in, then started listening to the entire CD and now it's just been in there for a week now.

This was the first Cd i ever heard from them years ago. Couldnt stop playing it either and then when i bought the debut i couldnt stop playing that one. Every once in a while i listen to them but you know me just so much music out there that im listening to a new band every week. ;D

While I absolutely have no problem with anyone of these guys at all...I was giving QT a list of what I felt was raw blues based upon Elmore James (kinda wild bottleneck playing, SBWII aside)....but you can't go wrong with any of these guys either. Magic Sam's West Side Soul I would include with LABF's list.

For jazz, have you checked out the Bill Evans Trio? Waltz For Debby is one of my faves of all time and it's great chill out music.....saved me from going over the edge in a traffic jam around DC a couple of years back.

I love Adderley as well.....you listed Something Else I believe.....a great release but you need to get the immortal Mercy, Mercy, Mercy perhaps my fave jazz CD of all time. Everyone's heard Ramsey Lewis's The "In" Crowd before...if you like that, then you'll love the album by the same name.

If you're interested in Fusion, LABF is your Man and no doubt he can take you much deeper in these areas....but the Mahvishnu Orchestra's The Inner Mounting Flame & Birds Of Fire are great places to start to see if you're interested in such things......hearing John McLaughlin for the first time will make you forget about all other guitarists for a brief moment.

Ramsey Lewis In Crowd was a great work. It still sounds fresh. I just got Mercy3. Bill Evans is a awesome. Magic Sam's Westside Soul. I keep trying to get that and something always happens....like magic. I'm not making that up! I look forward to hearing that.

I have (almost) everything John McLaughlin ever made including his work with Paco, Al Dimeola, Shaki, Electric and started chasing down works by some of the musicians who he's been in groups with. John McLaughlin's best work IMHO was Nothingness to Eternity the live CD. Wow!

I got deep into Joe Satriani. I have no idea what this post 80's hair band metal guitarist does right but his melodic screaming metal is some of the most beautiful stuff I've ever heard. I was absolutely lost in a song of his for two days ---- Flying in a blue dream.

This is about the fifth song of his that has had this absolute magnetic affect on me. I wanted to memorize everything about it. I have pretty much everything Joe ever made except the anthology works.

Joe isn't like John McLaughlin. If he went unplugged I cannot imagine him being exposed like that. He relies on the electric "alien" sound to make his music but dayum is he good. Since his music has no lyrics he basically is just hot wiring into your subconscious. He actually has some work where he sings but I like the instrumental stuff better. It's like when Stanley Clarke singing. It's not bad but o.k. now we've answered that question....

I'm a newbie in all of this as far as I am concerned.

I love this music because it kind of defies everything but says some pretty interesting things...a very old message by the way

Summation: Oh yeah! Well I'm going to take your music, your rap beat, spice it up with whatever latin beat I feel like at the time (Salsa, Samba, Merenge, or even Bossa Nova) and I'm not gonna share it with you because you ain't from around here!

I'm hearing a lot more than I have before. It kind of goes back to the days of the Fainia All Stars heyday in the 70's or the whole Afro Cuban sound. You'll see stars from both sounds wandering into the others. I guess .50 made an appearance in some Reggaeton artists music.

http://www.musicofpuertorico.com/en/fania_all_stars.html
Prior to Delicate & Jumpy, the last "regular" Fania All Stars album on Fania for a couple of years was the solid Tribute To Tito Rodriguez, introducing Ruben Blades to the band. The Columbia series continued in lightweight vein with Rhythm Machine, again with the slimmed down Fania All Stars and keyboard player Bob James (executive producer) and guitarist Eric Gale guesting; and Spanish Fever (1978), with guests Maynard Ferguson, Hubert Laws, David Sanborn, Gale and others

I'm pretty impressed with the new My Morning Jacket CD. I thought their previous releases had fine moments, but were often a little too long winded and jammy. Jones really tightened up the song structure on this album. I think there were some lineup changes that may have factored in with this; changes for the better in my opinion.

Tiger, you said you like your Blues as raw as it comes. I can listen to Hound Dog Taylor or Jimmy Reed all day. Now, when you get into the Son House kind of stuff, you're talking about a couple steps up from field recordings. Great stuff.

The deeper I get into the Blues, the more my respect grows for Willie Dixon. He didn't break out as a big star as a performer, but his fingerprints are all over the Blues. He was a starmaker, who wrote and co-wrote dozens of enduring classics. Industry giants like Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and many others owe a lot to him.

While I have nothing but the utmost respect for John McLaughlin as a musician, I'm not really into the fusion-oriented music of that era.

I'm into west coast fusion from the 80s to the present, i.e., Chick Corea Elektric Band, Tribal Tech, Los Lobotomys, Karizma, Frank Gambale, Mike Miller, Greg Mathieson, et al.

I just got Testify by POD. Excellent

Right now -
- The Juliana Theory "Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat" (They're Steelers fans from Pittsburg, but they can ROCK!)
- Johnny Cash - "CASH" (This man was amazing)
- POD - "Testify" (Beautiful, very diverse music, talented musicans)
- Panic! At the Disco - "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" (Diverse, indie rock)
- Led Zeppelin "Led Zeppelin IV, aka ZOSO" (IMO the greatest rock album of all time, John Bonham is one of my hero's)
- Living Things "Ahead of the Lions" (Great garage rock and song writing, inteligent guys)
- Clear Static "Makeup Sex" (Decent music in the vain of The Cure and Depeche Mode)
That pretty much sums it up for me right now.

Good stuff there quiettiger.

Rodrigo is another good classical guitarist if you like Segovia.

If you are interested in avant-garde classical music, Philip Glass is interesting. He's not for everyone though.

How do you even describe Phillip Glass? His stuff with Ravi Shankar. I don't have any point of reference for this. It's why I liked Bagtra for awhile. It's a flavor of Indian trance music. I really don't know the difference between trance, house and club but it's as close a description as I have.

I did not realize that all jazz roads lead through Miles Davis. How do even begin to comprehend his influence and impact?

When I heard the intro to life is peachy, I knew it was gonna be a pretty "evil" album.

Same here, I wanted to see if Korn could hit it as big with Life is Peachy as they did with their self-titled debut, and as soon as I heard Twist then I knew it was going to be an awesome CD.

The Korn CD is pretty decent, but I really wish that somehow they could bring back their old sound of the first 2 CD's, follow the leader was just so damn different that it took me awhile to warm up to it, then Issues came out and it was darker than FTL(obviously, since FTL was a pop album for Korn's standards) but it still wasn't very good.

Untouchables was a nice step up from the last 2 Korn CD's(FTL and Issues) but still had that kind of pop-ish sound to it, but I really liked Take a look in the mirror(thought it was their best CD since Life is Peachy and was the closest that they came to their original sound.)

While Korn is still one of my favorite bands, I urn for them to come out with a CD that is just like Life is Peachy, I want them to go back to the hard edge rock with Jonathan Davis just screaming about how much he ****ing hates everything, those were the Korn days.

It's Irish traditional folksy music mixed with punk. Sounded real cool to me.

If anyone would burn me some of their CD's, I'd be happy to make some Broncos game copies for you.

Dave King, who was the lead singer for Fastway back in the early to mid 80's, is the singer of this band.

Fastway was my first band I ever saw live since they opened up for AC/DC on their Flick of the Switch tour in either 82 or 83. Since Fastway opened, they were my first live band ever. I loved Fastway's first two records as well.

And now nearly 25 years later Dave King is singing Irish Folk-Punk Rock.

That is how I feel as well. I really stopped listening to them when I did security (fraternity fund raiser) for the family values tour with them, Limp Bizkit, and Rammstein (great live). I was at the backstage area and by the loading dock making sure fans didn't sneak in. After having one of the groupies from Rammstein feel sorry for me an getting some drinks, I was having a great time.

Right after the show ended, I had to stay watch over the main entrance and make sure all the kids didn't rush in. All these kids were about 14-15 and one of the roadies for Korn came out to talk to them. He looked at me and told me to leave, I told him no. He said he needs to ask the fans something that as a security guard, I shouldn't hear. I told him that he was either going to have to ask them there or leave. He started yelling to the kids that Korn needs some coke and for any drug dealer to come up to him.

Dropped my views of the big time. I get that they are in a band and do that stuff but there are others ways to have gone about that then yelling it into a crowd of fans....


I did get to the dressing room and had a beer with them, orgy, rammstein.....

That is how I feel as well. I really stopped listening to them when I did security (fraternity fund raiser) for the family values tour with them, Limp Bizkit, and Rammstein (great live). I was at the backstage area and by the loading dock making sure fans didn't sneak in. After having one of the groupies from Rammstein feel sorry for me an getting some drinks, I was having a great time.

Right after the show ended, I had to stay watch over the main entrance and make sure all the kids didn't rush in. All these kids were about 14-15 and one of the roadies for Korn came out to talk to them. He looked at me and told me to leave, I told him no. He said he needs to ask the fans something that as a security guard, I shouldn't hear. I told him that he was either going to have to ask them there or leave. He started yelling to the kids that Korn needs some coke and for any drug dealer to come up to him.

Dropped my views of the big time. I get that they are in a band and do that stuff but there are others ways to have gone about that then yelling it into a crowd of fans....


I did get to the dressing room and had a beer with them, orgy, rammstein.....
Yea something definitely that could change your view on someone.

And about the music, I have to say you just kind of grow out of it and get past the pseudo angst, anger, and intellectual mind set.

That's why I don't listen much to the bands I used to like quite while ago or listen to it at all.


Still doesn't mean I don't listen to metal or rock just not likes of Korn.

I thought Betty was a good CD. Wilma's Rainbow was the best song on the CD. I also like Aftertaste and their newest one size matters. This one had Frankie B from Anthrax (after he left them and before he went back to the New/Old Anthrax)....They don't get a lot of radio play since they don't make radio friendly songs, they just have great riffs and good vocals that for some reason never caught on....

A quick Overview of the Meantime CD.

It's mean, lean, and raw if that makes sense, but it lacks variety in terms of sound. It's a pretty straightward CD.

But I could see that it was very influential to rock music these days. I see Korn take a lot of credit for that, but I think it's more of Helmet's influence more than anything else.

The last track "Take Me With You" is haunting and eerie. I love Morphine, but it's hard to listen to that song. Mark is beyond depression and the despair shows. Good art portrays an emotional condition amongst other things, and Mark does that well...but he has obviously lost hope by this point and it is really sad.

I'm not. They're excellent musicians, but they're not really "up" enough for popular radio. They're not rock enough for alternative radio. They're kind of folk-country, which doesn't really hit the major markets. Too bad because they are a great band. Put on a hell of a live show too.

They quite often times make stunning music for me.

I'm on the process of getting all their albums, but I thought Yankee Hotel definitely had some potential for the commercial market especially with Jesus Etc(How I found out about them). But I haven't listened to the Radio for awhile so I wouldn't know what's pop music today.

Last material I know of is a live solo album he released a couple of years ago. Mostly NMH songs, but the highlight is a cover of Phil Spector's "I Love How You Love Me". It is sublime. I have no idea why there haven't been any more NMH albums. Hopefully Mangum will revive that project one day.

Me an' Earl was haulin' chickens on a flatbed out of Wiggins, and we'd spent all night on the
uphill side of thirty-seven miles of hell called Wolf Creek Pass. Which is up on the Great Divide?
We was settin' there suckin' toothpicks, drinkin' Nehi and onion soup mix, and I said, "Earl, let's
mail a card to Mother then send them chickens on down the other side. Yeah, let's give 'em a ride."
(Chorus)
Wolf Creek Pass, way up on the Great Divide
Truckin' on down the other side
Well, Earl put down his bottle, mashed his foot down on the throttle, and then a couple'a boobs
with a thousand cubes in a nineteen-forty-eight Peterbilt screamed to life.
We woke up the chickens.
Well, we roared up offa that shoulder sprayin' pine cones, rocks, and boulders, and put four
hundred head of them Rhode Island reds and a couple a' burnt-out roosters on the line.
Look out below; 'cause here we go!
Well, we commenced to truckin' and them hens commenced to cluckin' and then Earl took out
a match and scratched his pants and lit up the unused half of a dollar cigar and took a puff. Says
"My, ain't this purdy up here."
I says, "Earl, this hill can spill us. You better slow down or you gonna kill us. Just make one
mistake and it's the Pearly Gates for them eight-five crates a' USDA-approved cluckers.
You wanna hit second?"
(Chorus)
Wolf Creek Pass, way up on the Great Divide
Truckin' on down the other side
Well, Earl grabbed on the shifter and he stabbed her into fifth gear and then the chromium-
plated, fully-illuminated genuine accessory shift knob come right off in his hand. I says, "You
wanna screw that thing back on, Earl?"
He was tryin' to thread it on there when the fire fell off a' his cigar and dropped on down, sorta
rolled around, and then lit in the cuff of Earl's pants and burned a hole in his sock. Yeah, sorta
set him right on fire.
I looked on outta the window and I started countin' phone poles, goin' by at the rate of four to
the seventh power. Well I put two and two together, and added twelve and carried five; come
up with twenty-two thousand telephone poles an hour.
I looked at Earl and his eyes was wide, his lip was curled, and his leg was fried. And his hand
was froze to the wheel like a tongue to a sled in the middle of a blizzard. I says, "Earl, I'm not
the type to complain; but the time has come for me to explain that if you don't apply some brake
real soon, they're gonna have to pick us up with a stick and a spoon."
Well, Earl rared back, and cocked his leg, stepped as down as hard as he could on the brake,
and the pedal went clear to the floor and stayed there, right there on the floor. He said it was
sorta like steppin' on a plum.
Well, from there on down it just wasn't real purdy: it was hairpin county and switchback city.
One of 'em looked like a can full'a worms; another one looked like malaria germs. Right in the
middle of the whole damn show was a real nice tunnel, now wouldn't you know?
Sign says clearance to the twelve-foot line, but the chickens was stacked to thirteen-nine. Well
we shot that tunnel at a hundred-and-ten, like gas through a funnel and eggs through a hen, and
we took that top row of chickens off slicker than scum off a Lousiana swamp. Went down and
around and around and down 'til we run outta ground at the edge of town. Bashed into the side
of the feed store... in downtown Pagosa Springs.
(Chorus)
Wolf Creek Pass, way up on the Great Divide
Truckin' on down the other side
Wolf Creek Pass, way up on the Great Divide
Truckin' on down the other side

and this one ..........
I was pullin' up a hill that's known as the devil's crest,
Haulin' 36 ton on a run called the nitro express.
There was nothin' but curves a runnin' from the top on down,
And at the bottom of the grade sat a quiet little country town.

Well, I was drivin' off the top when she jarred and the driveshaft broke,
Started pumpin' up the brakes, saw 'em going in a big cloud of smoke.
To keep 'er upright ...i knew I had to do my best,
Against a runaway bomb they call the nitro express.

(chorus)

There was 36 ton of a detonated steel,
Over 18 tires that smoked and squealed.
I had to ride her down and I couldn't jump free,
Or there'd be a big hole where that little town used to be.

Well that old trailer leaned each time that I took another curve,
My hands started sweatin' and I knew I was losin' my nerve.
And I was cussin' each rock and every inch of the devil's crest,
A fightin' with the wheel of a rig called the nitro express.

I side-swipped a mountain so i'd slow her down by rubbin' her side,
And when the sparks started flyin' man it looked like the 4th of july.
I finally got her stopped ... But mister I'm a gonna confess,
That's the last run I'm makin' in a rig called the nitro express.

(chorus)
(repeat chorus - change last line to ..cause there'd be a big
Hole where that little town used to be.

ok last one ;D .......
Hello I'm a truck
You've heard songs about truck drivers many times their stories told
How they pulled out of pittsburg for six days on the road
Bout the feather river canyon and climbin' the old grapevine
That old roadhouse down in texas and the girls they've left behind
You've heard their tales of daring and I think that's just fine
But if you can spare a minute well i'd like to tell you mine
There'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks
No double clutching gear jaming coffee drinking nuts
They'll drive their way to glory and they have all the luck
There'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks

Well there he sits in that cafe drinking coffee and telling lies
Prob'ly telling 'em how to talk that hill ten miles back
How telling 'em how he missed a gear and that volkswagen full of hippies
Passed us like I was sitting up on jacks or how we took that curve over on 66
Han't-a been for me hanging on the shoulder we'd both wound up in the ditch
If we're on time he takes the credit if we're late I get the blame
Up those hills with shutters open my stacks are running flame
My stack a running red light sucking diesel from the tanks
I take him south and bring him back without a word of thanks
So now you've heard my story and I guess it's my tough luck
There'd be no truck drivers if it wadn't for us trucks
There'd be no truck drivers...

Look at him sipping coffee and flirtin' with that waitress
And where do you think he left me that's right next to cattle truck (mooo)
Why couldn't we have put me next to that little pink mack sittin' over there
Gosh she's got pretty mud flaps and talk about stracked they're both chromed
Well he'll be coming out in a minute and he'll get that bar
And he'll go around and beat on my tires
You know for two pints of diesel i'd have a flat on the inside dual
Ha that fixed him I never did like the way he drives anyhow
Thainks he's god's gift to waitresses he never gives 'em a tip
Well I know what he's gonna do now he's gonna take out
The tape cartridge of back owens and play it again
I don't know why he don't get a merle haggard tape

I have Chicago's Greatest Hits spinning right now in my CD player.

When it comes to working out and listening to music at work I go with heavier music that gets me more pumped...stuff like Motley Crue, Rage Against the Machine, Metallica, Guns n' Roses, Audioslave, Queensryche, Def Leppard, etc.
