Just compiling my CDs for the upcoming American road trip. Got plenty of classics lined up (plenty of Dylan, Waits, Young, Springsteen, Sinatra and various jazz, blues and swing).

What else would go well with hitting the ole highway in a convertible (yes, we have rented a convertible for an extra 60 dollars. It was a no-brainer really )?

Also, putting a few soundtrack songs mingled in there: Easy Rider, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction etc.

Remove all Springsteen.
Add Simon & Garfunkel, Patti Smith, Velvet Underground, Television, Pixies, Lou Reed, Mamas And The Papas, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Talking Heads.

Me and you think alike, young bean.

Already got them all apart from Mamas and The Papas.

Talking Heads is a MUST. I wanna be listening to This Must Be The Place when crossing the Golden Bridge.

That's a point though. Need to add some Iggy...


EDIT: And I am NOT removing Bruce.

Stick some Beatles in there

Too bad. Maybe add Woody Guthrie.
And remember to play the music in the correct states. Dylan in Minnesota, Lou Reed in New York, etc etc.

Maybe some Blondie, Ramones, New York Dolls/Johnny Thunders stuff as well?

And Stooges yes. That's a must.

Is gonna be old Beatles though I reckon.

Gonna have a whole CD dedicated to old 50s / 60s rock and roll.

Actually, that's a point... we're gonna be in New Orleans for a bit. Anyone know of any good old blues compilations you'd recommend?

I thought this was going to be american music only? Or why Beatles?

If any music's allowed I can give you another 40 bands.

I think you should just listen to Springsteen continuously to be honest. For your own pleasure but also to piss JohnnyGenzale off

Well, I won't really get offended. I just find him incredibly boring. And if someone wants to ruin their own trip by pissing me off I'm all for it.

Anything that will suit an American road trip. Doesn't necessarily have to be American (got some Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Arcade Fire in there, and they're all Canadian. Django Reinhardt is French etc.)

I'm gonna throw some upbeat Bowie tracks in there as well. And Dire Straits and Police (I am gonna be a legal alien after all). Who are all English.

Then Leonard Cohen should be added.
John Frusciante. Totally forgot him

Grateful Dead's album American Beauty
incredible
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

All of these ^

Also, you NEED Trucker's Atlas by Modest Mouse. It's too fitting not to have it.

Maybe Rory Gallagher, Seasick Steve, Figure 8 by Elliot Smith, Leonard Cohen, Bowie.
RIP Adam

By The Way is one of my all time classics. When was it released? 2002? 2003? 10 years on, I'm still listening to the bloody thing.

Deep Purple. Epecially Highway Star and Space Trucking, made in Japan versions.

But really, at least Fireball and Machine Head. Great albums.

Sounds like fun, no idea what to contribute though.

Good luck.

edit: does it have to be American? Jesus & Mary Chain's Pyschocandy could be appropriate.

Pretty much all the songs that are played on the radio station K-DST in GTA:San Andreas.

Here's a link to the playlist:

No mention of America?

Ventura Highway, Horse With no Name, Sister Goldenhair...

The title basically begs for it...
HEY
Do you like anime/manga?

Pavement and the Strokes and the Hives and all other the bands basically


Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Eagles too, because cruisin' is the only time to ever listen to them. Boston too.

You're pretty much set with that my friend. Put some 50's rock n' roll in there as well. I'm not a huge fan of that era of music, but it seems like it would set the mood pretty well.

For the true American experience, listen to nothing but Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Eric Church, Rodney Atkins, etc. If you don't listen to those, you aren't patriotic enough. If you are not from America, you better listen to our music, because America built your country for you from scratch. Especially you, ****ing European TS.


olololo but really, I can't tell if you're going for all American bands, or music to match the scenery. I can say that I always listen to Red Hot Chili Peppers when I go to California.
#35
I'd say R.E.M.'s first several records are quintessential American music.

And I'll second Pavement, 'cuz they're quintessential hipster music, & driving across America is for hipsters, as Kerouac taught us.
