And if she still hasn't taken control after that ... you can always play ...

Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" ... make sure it is the looooong version ... all 17 minutes and 2 seconds worth.

Speaking of 1960s bands with weird names, my wife and I were married five years before I could prove to her "The Strawberry Alarm Clock" wasn't merely a figment of my warped mind. I wasn't about to try to spring "Mouse & the Traps" on her.

You're going to have to go a lot more obscure than the 13th Floor Elevators to stump this crowd. After all, they're originally from Kerrville, TX. Roky Erickson was a genius. Every heavy metal band owes them a debt, including Nirvana and Rob Zombie. I've even shared a few brews with Tommy Hall, their drummer.

Try again.

P.S. The roach clip is a good idea. I think we need to start our own Airstream club.

People on the Airstreamforums have excellent taste in music.

It great to know I'm in good company.

I saw a live show here in Sacramento years (and years and years) ago staring Moby Grape, Vinalla Fuge, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Quick Silver, Sons of Chaplin and a few others. ( I probably spelled them all wrong).

Good times.

Wow Minkus, that brings back some memories. The first rock 'n' roll concert I went to, back in 1972, was Quicksilver Messenger Service in Kansas City, KS. Still one of the best shows I've seen. They closed with "What About Me?" and the audience kept singing the refrain until they came back for an encore.

We were seated about six rows up in the center of the balcony. Got hard to see the stage at times due to all the smoke wafting through the air.

I even got a standing ovation between acts. People were throwing Frisbees around. I caught one, launched it toward the stage and watched it settle slowly into a tweeter horn on stage left. Couldn't have done it better if I had tried. Only problem was I aimed at a roadie on center stage and missed by about 50 feet to my right and 20 feet high.

Southern Gospel music, especially "Stamps-Baxter" quartet style, is to me the most wonderful "runnin' on down the road" music that there is. Anyone with a "Southern Gospel" upbringing usually knows all these songs and when that beat starts drumming and the piano starts playing, it's hard not to sing along and tap your feet (at least tap your left foot on the dead pedal). If I get a little sleepy, finding a Southern Gospel sing-a-thon on the A.M. radio will keep me wide awake for hours. Sing some bass for awhile, try a little tenor, and then sing some lead. There's something about the speed of the white lines passing at about 65 m.p.h. and the gospel beat that just goes together right.

Second, slow dixieland jazz.

Third, polkas.

Fourth, marching band / military band.

Fifth, oldies.

Sixth, classic country from when country had a real twang.

Seventh, conservative talk radio.
