Is it just me or do many of you folken think listening to music in the car just can't be beat? I just got my license recently and I find myself driving around listening to killer tunes. It is very mellowing, a man is all to himself when he is driving in a car....very zenlike with the way your focused on driving yet chillaxin to the tunes. Anyway what are some of your opinions about it?

i drivin long car trips before (with my parents in the car) they let me drive when they wanna sleep or something. i love all dead tunes in the car, plus other stuff. but i love playin truckin' in the car, cause im just truckin' ya know?

i probrobly use the word to much, but it defines my life, i can't help it, i wake up, get truckin' on downstaris, then start truckin' on down to chill withe the fella's, go truckin to the beach, parties, then begin the long and stumbly truckin' back home.

The song that got me recently while driving was Up on Cripple Creek from Before the's a live album comprised of Dylan and The Band. The album is tremendously amazing. Theres that song and Rainy Day Woman #12 or something like that...anyway that song is a gem while cruisin'.

I drive an hour to work and an hour back and use it to listen to much music. It's cranked and I listen to everything from the boys to new music (lovin' the Raconteur's new one as well as Frank Black's Fastman Raiderman) to classics (Exile on Main Street and Sticky Fingers by the Stones, Floyd, Band, Clapton, Who, Allman's, Beatles, CCR, Dylan, Hendrix), to the obscure and interesting (Kevn Kinney, Eric Schwartz, King Missile, Robyn Hitchcock, Nic Cave, etc.) to even some good rap (Ice-T, Tribe called Quest) and real country (Cash, Parsons, Emmylou, Hank the 1st, Steve Earle, etc). Driving up a river into the mountains with the tunes blasting, I often think of Neal, the real deal, doin the same. When we become one, it is unbelievable...
