From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

The Clash: A Little Car Jamming

Starting to catch up on my blog writing and hopefully you've been enjoying some of the musical choices. None of us has the same taste in music, so I never expect everyone to like everything I feature. But it's still a good thing to listen and hear different styles and genres. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not good. And even though it might be good doesn't mean you should like it. Baby, that's what musical taste is all about. 

So being I was a busy girl this week, I thought I'd jump into the 100 Word Song Challenge again. This week Lance and t, two of my favorite writers of the moment (trust me they could be on my shit list in a heartbeat) got together to choose a band so universally adored, I don't know anyone who doesn't like at least some of their music. The band is The Clash and the song chosen is "Car Jamming," an interesting choice to say the least.

100 Words with the song used as inspiration.

"Car Jamming"

Nothing could beat turning 360’s in the Torino while Jimi wailed out “Crosstown Traffic.” Lying in his sweat-soaked bed, Danny cried at the memory. It was the last good day of his life. The day before his draft notice took his future and later his legs.

Now it had taken his mind.

Through the drug haze he saw the old movie on TV while checking the cylinder. What was her name… she was married to Bogie.  She had that line “Just put your lips together and blow.” Danny smiled at the irony as he put his mouth around the barrel.

My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog


  1. wow...this ended in a way different place than I thought. You know I love stuff like this but you went above and beyond the call of duty. Strummer would be proud of the creativity.

    1. creativity, say tomato. thanks lance, the song has so much going on, it was hard to get a feel. you know me, when in doubt...go dark.

  2. Powerfully written and an unexpected ending. I love this! Loved what you said about music "just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's not good..........". I had actually never heard this song or much from this band. (please don't banned me from your blog) I found a lot of meaning in the song. I love all types of music and respect most artist. I'm not a musical snob as Lance is though. :)

  3. I haven't banned anyone yet but that guy Anonymous really gets on my nerves. Thanks so much and yes, Lance is a musical snob. But to me he's a youngin' who will learn.. in time.

  4. Whoah - that was damned powerful Kat - awesome take on the tune!

    And thanks too, for not shit-listing me just yet... =)

    1. you t...never. thanks for the compliment. I want to see you this week, with my song pick.
