It was between La Vie and Ragtop and I just had to go with the "top down, stereo up, two lanes, nowhere to go and all day to get there" song.
Take me for what I am, a star newly emerging.
I accept the new found man, and I set the twilight reeling.

Who's the Blonde Stranger.

I've always had a secret desire for a couple of strange blondes who shall remain nameless to enter my life.

Plus, I just love the upbeat tempo of this song.

Love In Decline
Why no one else ever talks about this song I don't know, but I love it.
Though I was a kid in the 80s this song makes me think of what it could have been like to be an adult having fun!!!!

After that
La Vie Dansante. I like the idea of dancing through a fun life.

Burn That Bridge with Ragtop Day a close second.

Maybe the order will reverse if I change rides?

La Vie Dansante because I like the idea of it....but Knees of My Heart is a close second.....I need to get this album out, it's not one that I listen to very often and I don't think I appreciate it as much as I should!!

One of my favorite albums. When the wild life betrays me seems to be a look into the future for him.

Burn That Bridge - I love popping Live In Cincinnati into my cd player just to hear this song sometimes.

Who's the Blonde Stranger, definitely!

We took that CD everywhere... on our many roadtrips or the days spent on the boat cruising the Madison lakes. I sure miss that man...

Ragtop Day because I love the western guitar beat and played this song so many times when I jumped in the mustang and put the top down and hit the roads.

Every time I hear it I think of those crazy days of driving my RAGTOP and going to those special places like the Floribama. It still feels good to cruise on down to the Gulf.
