Ear Candy Update July 26.m4a

DISCLAIMER: Duke Wilbury is not responsible, IN ANY WAY, for any speeding tickets you may incur while listening to Songs to Steal Cars By.

America has long had a fascination with the internal-combustion engine, specifically those engines when they're placed inside a chunk of Motor City iron and modified to burn down the road at roughly the speed of sound. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but it would be a safe bet to say there have been as many odes to automobiles as there have been to women. It's not a guarantee that where a bitchin' ride goes women will follow but in a life full of uncertainly, that's as certain as it gets.

America's love affairs don't end there. We, as a people, love our outlaws. We love our gunslingers, our tragic anti-heroes and the villains who make them so. America needed James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and Brando in The Wild One. So, in an effort to pay homage to both automobile and outlaw, the Ear Candy Update presents Songs to Steal Cars By.

Join us next time for When Cool Was Hot - The Barrelhouse Boogie Woogie Era next Sunday.
