    Fragile bravado and face-melting guitar:



    Delta blues meets hip hop cut-ups and loops; soundtrack for fast night driving (though I'm not doing that at the moment ;)). I change the lyric to, "she asked me why, so I went on tour."

    https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=rl+burnside+she+asked+me+why

    Transcendent lyrics in elegy to a brother lost down the rabbit hole. Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?

    One time a drunk girl in an elevator at the Golden Nugget asked if I was that base player from REM, "what's his name?" I asked her, "girlie, if I was Mike Mills don't you think I'd be staying on the Strip?"

    Anyhow, here's an efficient 3 minute classic...it has it all...cowbell, blistering guitar, the syncopated/machine gun drum break. Those were the days...get in, tell your story, and get out.

    There was another efficient 3 minute classic that preceded it, that opens with cowbell, features syncopated drums and tells a story about another lady of the Mississippi:



    Add these to the list of driving songs.

    First one I was interested enough to click on.
    Buggy, are their pop music songs in your world that signify the same? I mean singing about a longing for home. Or is it just an American thing.

    How about some garage proto-punk? There's Lou Reed, of course, but here are a few of my lesser known favorites.

    Richman would ad lib or scramble the lyrics in "Roadrunner", so every version is different. I like this one for the lyrics. The opening pace is slower than most, but around the 2 minute mark they find the groove:



    Jeff Lynne gussied up "Do Ya" with strings and other nonsense with ELO. This original version with The Move has many anti-punk elements: cowbell, echo, some hippy-trippy in the middle, and a pop melody. But the 3-chord opening/hook and the drumming is a California contribution to garage punk, and Lynne delivers it like his life depends on it.



    I quick tour of proto-punk would not be complete without some gender bending. Relax...it was mostly posturing. When the lead guitar gets buried, it sounds like somebody is clubbing a baby seal.

    This song is a lot less about longing for home than it is a defense of a way of life. It was a pointed answer to Neil Young's "Alabama" and "Southern Man".

    The lyrics that followed "in Birmingham they loved the governor", who happened to be George Wallace, was intended to express opposition to segregation, but it was widely interpreted otherwise.

    In any case, you gotta love that bouncy guitar hook.

    I think so.


    edit......since you asked me, I`ve been racking my brain and can`t think of any. There are traditional Irish and Scottish songs that might have to do with people emigrating during troubled times.
