Pete’s Blog&Grille: Dwayne’s & My 50 Best Trucking Songs Ever Again
A few years back Today’s Trucking Magazine published a list of the 10 Best Trucking Songs of all time, as chosen by me. Shortly afterward, we received an email from Dwayne Rae, of Owen Sound, ON.
He said “Why stop at 10 when there are so many great trucking songs out there to choose from?” And he provided us a list of 50 others.
We posted Dwayne’s list. And darned if Dwayne Rae’s 50 Top Trucking Song List didn’t turn out to be the single Most Popular Story Todaystrucking.com has ever posted.
Music and truck lovers from around the globe chimed in. We struck a chord. Responses are still arriving.
Enter Martin Smith and Jason Rhyno. They’re my clever colleagues here at Today’s Trucking and they suggested we provide direct links to these fabulous songs.
I hit the web one evening and proceeded to be amazed.
I discovered that every last one of our chosen songs is online, free for the listenin’. Who knew?
As the bank robber Frank James used to say to his kid brother Jesse whenever he witnessed something new and mind-boggling: “Ain’t that a wonderment?”
All our songs are online somewhere. It truly is a wonderment.
If we were 30 years ago, this would be a K-Tel Commercial, with me loudly beseeching late-night TV audiences: “You won’t be able to buy this list in stores! So order before midnight tonight!”
But it’s not. It’s now. We’ll get your attention this way.
