Scott Mackay posed a question recently on our Facebook. I encourage you to read the comments after judging my song choices!
My dad actually answered the Facebook question, an answer I could have told you before he even submitted the comment. “Radar Love.”
Yep, that’s on my list, too! My brother and I grew up with that music on garage radio as he was doing various projects. And yes, he would literally turn up the volume when certain songs came on, and those songs have stuck with me as well, becoming my very own “turn it up” songs!
Here’s my list, in no particular order, and very much influenced by my dad:
Golden Earring – Radar Love
Todd Rundgren – Band the Drum All Day
The J Geils Band – Centerfold
MeatLoaf – Paradise By the Dashboard Light, Two out of Three Aint Bad…pretty much anything Meatloaf and I’m not sorry about it!
Bowie – Suffragette City (Wham, bam, thank you ma’am!)
Zep – When the Levy Breaks
Charlie Daniels Band – Devil Went Down to Georgia
BTO – Takin’ Care of Business
Don McLean – American Pie
The Eagles – Life in the Fast Lane
Pretty much any AC/DC or Metallica
ZZ Top – Cheap Sunglasses
Aerosmith – Back In the Saddle
Marshall Tucker – Can’t You See
Allman Brothers – Midnight Rider
Molly Hatchett – Flirtin’ With Disaster
David Essex – Rock On
About a hundred more I’m forgetting right now!
Hey, I never said it was a super unique list…just songs I really enjoy at louder decibels!
