On a music mission today. Sat on my own on the bus for the first time, spare seats are a rare luxury. I was thinking it’d be a boring day of book finishing and Rubix cube cracking. But actually it was excellent… As Pete Postlethwaite said in Brassed Off : Music Matters…
An old friend reminded me to listen to “one for the road” by FFAF and a new friend introduced me to “the road” by Frank Turner.
Anyway, those that know Chris will appreciate my fondness for lists.
So I trawled the 4500 songs I brought with me for all tracks that include the word “road”. FYI I own 33.
They made an excellent playlist.
Can you name any of them? Prizes will be offered*.
*no prizes offered.
