Because Songs Matter

TOP 3: DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS

I’ll admit it. I like doing the Top 5 posts we were doing back in the day. Unfortunately, the interest seemed to die out over time and ever since I’ve been trying to think of another reoccurring theme post I could do on Wednesdays. This idea hit me a couple of weeks ago and I thought I’d give it a try and see if it caught on at all. Please, lemme know if you think it’s total cheese and should be dropped immediately.

Anyhow, the idea is to pick your top 3 songs from a band and post them in the comments. Then, we’ll make a compilation of the Top 5 picks and post that on Monday.

This week’s band is the only one it could be, the one that gave this site it’s name….The Drive-By Truckers.

Here are my choices (in order):

Drive-By Truckers - Zip City     

Drive-By Truckers - Never Gonna Change     

Drive-By Truckers - Women Without Whiskey
