Remarkably few songs have been written about drive-in restaurants. Go figure — I’d think somebody could knock one out while waiting for a chili cheese-a-plenty.
But they haven’t, and I’m hellbent on a “drive-in” playlist this week, so here’s what you get, even if they are about drive-in movies:
“Drive In,” The Beach Boys
“Drive-In Saturday,” David Bowie
“Rain at the Drive In,” NRBQ
“Drive-In Show,” Eddie Cochran
So there you have it: A super short playlist of drive-in songs. Know any others? I’m listening.
***Super Extras Bonus Non-Singing-Like Track***
That is a tough playlist to fill out! Maybe just throw in some songs by At the Drive-In? And I remember a song in Grease…Alone at the drive-in. Branded a fool. What will they say Monday at school?
Both were considered, Laura B., but one felt like a cheat and the other would’ve caused me to jab a pencil in my ear.
Maybe we should get together and write a few Drive-In Restaurant songs.
Here’s a few titles I’m thinking about –
‘Gnats On My Chili Fries’
‘I Can Skate Better Than Her’
‘The Guy Next To Me Needs A Muffler’
I’m in, Robbo!
Drive In Saturday – one of Bowie’s best.
And that’s saying something!
