Truck You, You Truckin' Mother Trucker




Boy Howdy, we've got a fun musical selection for you today.

First, though, a reminder. Regular visitors here (those that found their way back after The Great Disaster) will probably remember what happens here the day after Thanksgiving. For those who are new, or have forgotten, The Mountain goes daily(!!!!) with our 4th Annual Holiday Extravaganza. It begins the Friday after Thanksgiving, and we've already got some special treats lined up, so git yerselves ready.

Now, then.

In addition to regular posting, we seem to have allowed a few of our bread and butter Mountain obsessions to fall by the wayside. We're going to remedy that a bit today.

Trucking songs. We love us some hot truckin' here at the Mountain, it's one of our fave rave genres, and it's been a while since we, ahem, shared our love with all y'all. We got your diesel fix. Below you'll find a very special Big Rock Candy Mountain mix made especially for you. It's got a little new, a little old, and a little strange. Some I've posted before, some not. I've got literally thousands of truckin' tunes, so we're only scratching the surface here. Maybe we can make this a regular thing here. What do you think? Do y'all want more Big Rig hits from the Mountain?

We'll manage one more regular post before the Holiday fun begins.

For now, go Truck yerselves. Link to mp3 follows the track listing.

Sweet list. I've heard truck driving songs from a few of the artists you listed, but not the exact song you listed.

I recently came across the Black Dog soundtrack and it looks like a good source of more contemporary truckin' songs.

Very cool. I look forward to listening this weekend. Any chance you guys would repost the "alumininum yee-haw" mix for those of us late to the party, 'cause we thought you'd been hijacked for good at the old address???

Whew! I don't know what the gall dang deal is aroun' this here Mountain is but everytime he get on one of them thar theme kicks I be pickin' it up on the Outlaw Radio Channel on the Sirius Radio. You do a truckin' thing and boop there it is, a truckin' medley on the station. The tune that stands out that they played was "Mama Hates Diesels" Commander Cody. Woulda fit this fine list to a T. All I'm sayin'. Keep it up. Or maybe take your talent to the radio boys for a little show, ya know?

I just found my way back here--no idea what happened, but I'm glad you're still here.

Looking forward to Friday. We've already started with the holiday fare at 77 Santas. Can't wait to see what you've got this year!

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
