Radio Free Road Trip

I asked around to some of the more notorious personalities in the college hockey scene:

What is your ultimate road trip song?

Yager (president, Mitch's Misfits)
Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody

Goon (blogger, Goon's World)
Nickelback: Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting

Melmac (GPL roadtrippin' queen)
C.W. McCall: Convoy

DGGoddard (blogger, Let's Go DU)
Ram Jam: Black Betty

Biddco (tUMD student fan extraordinaire)
Lonely Island: I'm On A Boat

Dirty (blogger, Dirty's Diatribe; antagonist)
Celine Dion: My Heart Will Go On

Eliot Olshansky (blogger, The Rat Lives!)
Guns 'n' Roses: November Rain

Jeremy (blogger, Wild View from Section 216)
Journey: Don't Stop Believin'

FireHelmetGuy (GPL lifer)
Metallica: And Justice For All

Brenthoven (GPL rube)
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Freebird


Geist & Quizmire (blogger, Sioux Yeah Yeah!; WCHA columnist for USCHO)
Unknown artist: One Team, One Goal

RWD (me)
Bruce Springsteen: Thunder Road

A few notes:
1. Some people gave me like, 800 choices for songs. They can not follow directions.
2. I think there were a few other people who either texted me their choice or posted it on my FB wall somewhere, but I seem to have lost those answers.
3. There were a LOT of deadbeats who didn't answer!!! This is one short road trip.

Readers (if there are any other RWD readers that are not already listed) can weigh in with their own choices so we can turn this playlist from Minneapolis-Mankato into Duluth-Houghton.

Cake: Going the Distance

I win hands down. Which you probably anticipated causing you to leave me off the list.
Nothing can possibly compare to it.
The base line is legendary ...


Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags goes up,
Churning and burning, they yern for the cup.

They deftly manouver and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank,
Wreckless and wild they pour thru the turns,
Their prowless is podent and secretly stern.

As they speed thru the finish the flags go down.
The fans get up, and get out of town.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns,
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

He's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
She's all alone, all alone in her time of need.

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He's going the distance.

Yeah!

No trophy, no flowers, no flash bulbs, no wine.
He's haunted by something he cannot define.
Bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse,
Assail him, impale him with monster truck force.
In his mind he's still driving, still making the grade.
She's hoping time that her memories will fade,
Cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he's striving and driving and hugging the turns,
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

Cause he's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
She's all alone, all alone in her time of need.

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's figting and biting and riding on his horse,
He's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's figting and biting and riding on his horse!

He's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
He's going the distance...

Spelling errors are not mine as I copy/pasted this ...
