Head banging is not up my tree, but neither is Mariah Carey!
HOWEVER, I do like the holiday spirit of your choice, so in the spirit I hereby revise my lunch tossing emoticon for a mere upset stomach! :|
Happy Holidays!!

I think that Mariah Carey's singing is a woman thing. The guys that like her usually just like looking at her. Too much of a Diva for me though. I can see that song being responsible for creating serial killers...

Very cool, but man it looks like they mastered the art of one step forward two steps back!
Thanks for posting that.

I found this website, works like a charm. It converts the audio track on Youtube to an MP3. I spent the last few hours getting all kinds of rare stuff. Legal, I don't know. But I have some awesome Stevie Ray Vaughn stuff now. http://www.video2mp3.net/index.php
Oh, and give this a listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxMJwClt6cE It's not Bob, but widely credited as him. Many versions out there, quality varies.

Happy Mid Winter Holiday of your Choice to everyone.

Since this is an ongoing post... my favorite Roadster song, one that ushers in the new Roadster season each spring when I first fire her up, and is actually sitting in the car's CD player as we converse, is "Back in the Saddle" by Aerosmith.

Merry Christmas! :smt006

It's funny, I'm not big into car audio, but after playing around with various "OK" stereos in the Roadster, I finally resigned myself to the fact it was important for the Roadster and got the Retro Sound unit, MP3, USB etc. It was worth every cent. It just ads to the experience, but there are the days when the stereo stays off and I just listen to the car.

My first roadster was a '63 1500.
I missed it when I sold it.
One day I seen the MTV video of Tears For Fears, Everybody wants to rule the world and had to buy another. The clip did not have a Datsun but it was almost as good. I bought a '68 2000 soon after.

Beautiful night and I was driving about 615P Monday up towards West Hollywood on La Cienega when this song came on KCSN. How appropriate if you know the area. LOL
Had just stopped by to see the Roadster, looking good.

Sorry to say I never heard of this guy until Monday, now I can't stop playing his stuff.
"Baby" from the album Time to Discover by Robert Bradley, Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise

Can hardly wait to play this one in the Roadster.
