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.
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.
