Driving last night, Safe At Home played on my A Good Feeling To Know Radio station on Apple Music. Interestingly, that Souther Hillman Furay tune that opened side two of the original vinyl served as the title of the blog a year ago today.
I actually did a search of “highway” on that play list. The third and fourth tunes were respectively,
Mystic Highway – John Fogerty and
Rockin’ Down The Highway – The Doobie Brothers.
There were six in all, the others being,
The New Lee Highway Blues – David Bromberg
Take The Highway (live) – Marshall Tucker Band
Roll On Down The Highway – Bachman Turner Overdrive and
Key to the Highway – Derek and the Dominos
I searched my song collection to see if I left any other tune with “highway” in the title off the list.
I found I also left off so many tunes in my collection that I surmised I never searched “highway.”
So now the list grows:
Deep Purple Highway Star (from Made in Japan)
The Doors Queen of the Highway
Bob Dylan Highway 61 Revisited
Free The Highway Song, off the aptly name “Highway” LP.
Hot Tuna Highway Song
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Kings Highway
Bruce Springsteen Working on the Highway
America Ventura Highway
Neil Young Human Highway
and with Crazy Horse, Changing Highways off Broken Arrow.
And that also involved determining exactly where to place each of the above.
All because I heard a song that is perhaps my fave by Pure Prairie League (“Amy” might be the better known song).
I have a road trip just in mind for this now updated list.
