Re: The first song...( LZC)

Thanks for all the suggestions!!!!!

And the winner was....


: )

A moribund thought perhaps but I've oft said that at my funeral this is what I would like to be played. IMO one of Jimmy's most beautiful pieces of art. So it was the last thing I played in my old Jeep and I found it only fitting to have it as the first thing I played in my new ride. OK.....total fag boy alert... so after all the paperwork was signed and me & my wife sat down in it ready to take it home, I turned to my wife, gave her a great big kiss said thank you and then said close your eyes and make believe it's 15 years ago... I put in disc 2 of PG, skipped forward one, turned it up not too loud and also sat back held her hand and closed my eyes and found myself transported back to Snowdonia, Wales. Wonderful memories of us tooling around trying to find Bron-Yr-Aur with the tape I made of all Zep acoustic numbers that had BYR in between every other song... For those few minutes I wasn't in a parking lot, I wasn't in a new car, I was in a very very happy place. It was there in Wales, by Bron-Yr-Aur that I decided this is the girl I'm gonna marry. 15 years, a dog , 2 kids and now bunnies later, I still feel the same way.

BUT then I skipped back to disc 1, cranked it up to 35 and terrified the shit out of my wife as I gave myself a serious shot of testosterone driving that beast thru the suburban spaghetti junction that is Rt 4 & 17 in North Jersey being a yute pissing vinegar!!! Arrrrrgggk!!! It was great.... Custard Pie , Rover...270 watts and 271 horses...the first shot of drums in IMTOD almost made her jump thru the moonroof. I am once again in LOVE with Led Zeppelin.

I also promised my wife I'd never do that to her again. : )

Oddly enough I was an extra 11:01 minutes late for work today....

F*CK F*CK F*CK Led Zeppelin are great. How is it that all these years I've not drolled on about Bonzo's phenomenal footwork and the orgasmic sympatico between him & JPJ in IMTOD is beyond me?!?!?! I guess having a subwoofer just two feet behind your ass helps.

Yes, I think I'm gonna enjoy my new ride indeed. As long as I have Zep along as my travelling riverside companion.

Oh yeah, speaking of

And already got christened this morning with everything from rain, sleet, hail, snow and finally some sun.
It's gonna be hard not to get speeding tickets come spring!

Thanks for listening.

I am,

OK, in just a couple of hours I'm putting my trusty Jeep to pasture and am picking up my new ride. Gone is my Alpine cassette deck / CD changer and in is some high faluting 6 cd changer XM radio yada yada...

SO, with what should I Christen my new stereo ?

I'm thinking as it was 40 years ago, the first song in my new car should be GTBT. I *think* that's the first thing I cranked in my old car's system. After all, in my world, my car has always been my "man cave" where I would retreat to in both Good Times and Bad Times...

I am going to seriously miss my Jeep. 12 years of my life were spent tooling around in that beast. From the Artic colds of Canada, to the sweltering heat of urban jungles, from city streets to country river beds my Jeep Cherokee Sport has served me well. Unlike the suburban housewives' SUV's this was trully treated like a sport and utility vehicle. River Deep Mountain High. Hmmmmm There's a good parting song if I don't say so myself. I'm not too proud to say that yes, I had a good cry last night taking off my roof bike racks and cleaning her out. But it is time to go as I can no longer keep up the maintenance required to keep it and me safe on the road. I hope she makes some enterprising yute happy for a couple of more years before succumbing to the scrap heap. You cannot kill a good ol slant 6. Too bad everything surrounding it is going down ...fast. : ( Long live the Nech-Mobile!
