.. most of the people I knew back then, simply saw it as an "over-patriotic American chant!".  Basically, how great and powerful are we (echoes of Mr trump's "Let's Make America Great Again!").

Remember, I am simply saying that this was people's assumption/interpretation from my part of the world, back in those days.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Most widely misrepresented is what I'd call it Lonny, with lyrics like that how can it be misunderstood.  :DntKnw:

People who choose to use it - especially the world media and politicians - as an anthem for The USA only play the chorus, sometimes the 1st verse & chorus, they never play the 2/3/final verses.  >:(

I'm sure if it was a Dylan song the irony of the chorus would be obvious, people should have noticed better how poetic, satirical and insightful the Boss really is.

Danger Zone would be on my list, too. Here's my all time favorite "floor it" song, also from my all time favorite movie. Same name as one of John's but a completely different song:



One more, this one from my favorite band. Max Weinberg, Bruce Springsteen's drummer, sits in:

“You can search the world over for the finer things, but you won't find a match for the American road and the creatures that live on it.”
― Bob Dylan

My 'Better Half' requested that I post her favourite driving track ...



So, that's me back in the good books for the length of time that Max can stay out of trouble!! ;)

If you want to go all the way back to surf music, these 2 always go on my playlist.
The Ventures performed these very well, but these are the originals.

I just love that this one starts slower and builds to a real sing along with a beaut guitar solo, really gets your motor running.





Then I find this Mark E Smith's take on the colonial Victorian era as sardonic as 'Born in the USA'. 
Hits the spot like no other on the open road.

They don't make them like that anymore John!!  :(

Anyone through on some Chris Rea, while behind the wheel.  I typically listening to "Road to Hell" or "Working on It".

WEY HEY!!! Mr Phoenix Nights himself.  I have to admit, I am a sucker for Peter Kay, whether it's stand up comedy (Top of the Tower!) ... or TV comedy from PN's to Car Share.  Let's face it, how many people could sit in a car for 90% of an episode and make it work???

See what's you've gone and done now, sorry folks, I had to!!!



Episode with the pig, Peter with the swimming goggles behind the wheel, "You DIRTY Pig, You DIRTY Pig!! ... This is our 'ome" .... can't do a Bolton accent, but you get the drift!! ... "I Can't See, Mee Eyes are Boornin'"

Peter Kay is such a legend. I love the prison episode of Max and Paddy it has me in stitches throughout. I love the bit where Max is trying to tunnel out of his cell with a spoon  :DD :DD

Hope he returns soon, I miss him :'(
