I will be making my "annual pilgrimage" from St. Louis to Memphis in a couple of weeks time and I turn to you for music recommendations.
I find that I would like to update my music collection and maybe make some new driving music MP3 CDs for the haul down to the "lovely" city of Memphis (where red light means that 5 more cars continue to go through the intersection...)
What music can you recommend? I'm not a rap, modern pop or easy listening fan (definitely not for driving over 5 hours!)... can tolerate some country but I'm looking for driving, thumping beat music as well as something that's got good lyrics to it (i.e. lead singer's not screaming obscenities for the entire chorus...)
This is a night drive both ways (because of my Partner In Crime's work schedule - he's a one man show at a FedEx Kinko's knock-off type store) so music is important! :)
