Get your motor runnin'

Because today's Music Monday post theme over at Dolly's this week is *MY* suggestion (clears throat and dusts shoulders): songs about cars. In other words? RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!

This selection is an old favorite from Bruce Springsteen - and this is very important because Bruce Springsteen is really not my kind of music. But there's something about this one that has always hooked me from the get-go, from the groovy bass lines to the horns to the slighty twangy, rockabilly-ish sound and lyrics such as

"They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man I ain't going for that
I know it was her pink Cadillac."

Pink Cadillac

And since I wouldn't be me without a heavier song, here's another:

Jesus Built My Hotrod - Ministry

Be sure to come see all the cars The Music Mamas came up with, as well as with all the other Music Monday participants at the following sites:

    1. Absolutely! I don't listen to much from Bruce Springsteen, but that always gets me moving. Ministry is a little more taste-specific!

  6. Ministry is pretty damn heavy and a wee bit manic but I actually dig it.
