I still have the CD in my car; I go nowhere without it.

The first side of that album, still pushes me toward speeding tickets.



SSSAAAAAAAAMMMMMMME! I was 11 when it came out. It's one album I've never gotten tired of. "The Camera Eye" has earned me at least one speeding ticket when I first started driving. Damn near got cuffed and stuffed because I had long hair. Small town cops. Grrrrr.

I got pulled over in Phoenix, back in the late 1990s. Loop 303... back when it was all farmland.

It was late evening, I was cranking "Red Barchetta", and driving well above the speed limit. Arizona DPS got me.

He asked why I felt the need to drive that fast, and I told him the truth. He was a Rush fan, and I got off with a warning.

I have a Chevy Impala, now.

"The Camera Eye"... would get me in serious trouble these days. Thank God for cruise control... and, I only listen to it at a reasonable volume.

(TBH, I wrote that for my wife. If I drive that car, while playing "The Camera Eye" at a high volume... it will most likely end in a felony arrest. If you are my future defense attorney... dude... sorry.)

In elemetary school I won a Tommy TuTone record.. Jenny 8675309. I jumped rope longer than anyone.. and that record was like getting a 6 foot tall solid gold trophy. LOL!

I grew up with Creedence and etc but my dad liked Chuck Berry and Otis Redding and etc. He drove like a maniac and we had a lot of cobblestone streets. No seatbelts in a car back then and it was like a carnie roller coaster going to the docks sliding all over.. getting a concussion on the windows.. knocking my teeth out trying to take a drink of purple pop out of the glass bottle while taking a turn... him blaring ( HAH.. those speakers..) Hotrod Lincoln or whatever.

One song I ALWAYS loved :

When I was a child we didn't listen to rock or pop, we listened to show tunes on records:

Thanks for all of your replies. I plan on listening to all of them this weekend. And yeah, I hit the sauce a little too much yesterday. Just found out I have to put my cat to sleep. I don't handle that kind of thing too well.

I'm sorry to hear about your cat. I had to have one put to sleep in May of 2019. It was the first cat I ever adopted and although she had cancer, she wasn't old and weak so it was really difficult. I cried and cried and held her little paw while the vet gave her the euthanasia drug. She was already sedated from an exam so she went to "sleep" quickly and quietly. After it was over I was glad that her suffering was ended.

The Monkies for sure! My mom had their 8-track and I played the heck out of that one.

Then, there was Queen. Man, the best. Going to the skating rink and hearing We are the Champions and Fat Bottomed Girls and Flash and Bohemian Rhapsody. Nothing will ever beat Freddie Mercury for me.

ELO and Styx. Those were some amazing bands. I still love Jeff Lynne singing with the Traveling Wilburys.

I even liked Johnny Cash as country music was pretty commonly heard around my house and my grandparents place. Plus Dolly Parton. She's still awesome.

My step dad really got me into a lot of classic bands like CCR, Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Uriah Heep, Fleetwood Mac.

Great memories.
