--------------------------------- Christopher Cross - Ride Like The Wind (1980)
It features backing vocals by Michael McDonald and a guitar solo by Cross.
The song tells the story of a condemned criminal on the run to Mexico. Told from a first-person point of view, it describes how an outlaw and
convicted multiple murderer, on the run from a death-by-hanging sentence, has to "ride like the wind" to reach "the border of Mexico," where,
presumably, the posse apparently in pursuit of him will not be able to reach him.
Cross was on acid when he wrote the lyrics. "We were living in Houston at the time, and on the way down to Austin to record the songs, it was just a
beautiful Texas day. I took acid. So I wrote the words on the way down from Houston to Austin."
Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good (1978)
In the song, Walsh satirically reflects on the antics and excess of the era's rock stars, with nods to Keith Moon and others: "I live in hotels/Tear
out the walls", and "My Maserati does one-eighty-five/I lost my license, now I don't drive". The Maserati that Walsh himself owned at the time was a
1964 5000 GT model, and while fast, could only manage 170mph with tall gearing.
This is the original eight-minute version released on Walsh's album "But Seriously, Folks..."
