'Cool'? Not quite sure what that is.However. A few days ago I heard one of the funniest and most entertaining moments on any live album....the start of 'Made In Europe' when the band shut up for a second right at the start and Davey from Redcar intones "Rock and Roll" in a hilarious plummy voice. Then Rocky Blockmore plays THAT riff [no, not 'that' one, the other one] and off they jolly well go....lovely! Not sure if it's 'cool' or not. Don't think there's any irony...thank goodness!

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer - George Thorogood and the Destroyers. B)

I'm not sure how to define "cool" either but I've always liked this song:

Your daddy was mad as hell

He was mad at me and you

As he tied that chain to the front of my car and pulled me out of that ditch that we slid into

Don't know what his problem is

Why he keeps dragging you away

Don't know why I put up with this shit

When you don't put out and Zip City's so far away

Your daddy is a deacon down at the Salem Church of Christ

And he makes good money as long as Reynolds Wrap keeps everything wrapped up tight

Your mama's as good a wife and mama as she can be

And your sister's puttin' that sweet stuff on everybody in town but me

Your brother was the first-born, got ten fingers and ten toes

And it's a damn good thing cause he needs all twenty to keep the closet door closed

Maybe it's the twenty-six mile drive from Zip City to Colbert Heights

Keeps my mind clean

Gets me through the night

Maybe you're just a destination, a place for me to go

A way to keep from having to deal with my seventeen-year-old mind all alone

Keep your drawers on, girl, it ain't worth the fight

By the time you drop them I'll be gone

And you'll be right where they fall the rest of your life

You say you're tired of me taking you for granted

Waiting' up till the last minute to call you up and see what you want to do

Well you're only fifteen, girl, you ain't got no secretary

And "for granted" is a mighty big word for a country girl like you

You know it's just your daddy talking

Cause he knows that blood red carpet at the Salem Church of Christ

Ain't gonna ever see no wedding between me and you

Zip City it's a good thing that they built a wall around you

Zip up to Tennessee then zip back down to Alabama

I got 350 heads on a 305 engine

I get ten miles to the gallon

I ain't got no good intentions...

Words by Mike Cooley, Music by the Drive-By Truckers

From the album Southern Rock Opera

Chuck Berry did some cool stuff..

Sweet Little Sixteen

They're really rockin' in Boston

In Pittsburgh, Pa.

Deep in the heart of Texas

And round the 'Frisco Bay

All over St.Louis

And down in New Orleans

All the cats wanna dance with

Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen

She's just got to have

About half a million

Famed autographs

Her wallet filled with pictures

She gets them one by one

Becomes so excited

Watch her, look at her run.

"Oh Mommy, Mommy

Please may I go

It's such a sight to see

Somebody steal the show"

"Oh Daddy, Daddy

I beg of you

Whisper to Mommy

It's alright with you"

*'Cause they'll be rockin' on Bandstand

In Philadelphia, Pa.

Deep in the heart of Texas

And round the 'Frisco Bay

All over St.Louis

Way down in New Orleans

All the cats wanna dance with

Sweet Little Sixteen

(*Repeat)

Sweet Little Sixteen

She's got the grown - up blues

Tight dresses and lipstick

She's sportin' high - heel shoes

Oh but tomorrow morning

She'll have to change her trend

And be sweet sixteen

And back in class again

Well the'll be rockin' in Boston

Pittsburgh, Pa.

Deep in the heart of Texas

And round the 'Frisco Bay

Way out in St.Louis

Way down in New Orleans

All the cats wanna dance with

Sweet Little Sixteen

Sorry guys, but it's GOT to be this:

With all due respect to Boston (and their fans), if that song comes on the radio I can't switch the station fast enough. It's not that I hate the song itself but it's one of many "Classic Rock" radio have played into the ground. Now that I have satellite radio I don't have to worry about hearing those same songs over and over again. Best decision I ever made.
