Hi-Fi Friday: April 8, 2016

It’s April. This month got here speedily. As it was Blobby‘s turn to pick the theme, he chose… thoroughfares: Streets, Lanes, Roads, Freeways, Trails. Paths. But no Stairways!

No Stairway? Denied!


Today’s selection is probably too easy of one, and it was the first one that my mind when Blobby picked the theme. So I rejected it for that reason. But the song played on the radio at the studio tonight, so I took that as a sign that maybe I should use it. I’m really bad at interpreting signs.

I bought this CD shortly after it was released. I’m not exactly sure why I did, but I did. There’s a lot of good stuff on the album, but the song that got the most (if not only) radio play where I was was this one.

I think the song is catchy, and it has been covered by different artists in different genres. And one even made it to the Cars movie soundtrack.

From his 1991 album Mad Mad World, I give you Tom Cochrane’s “Life Is A Highway”.

Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down get back up again
You’re in my blood I’m not a lonely man

There’s no load I can’t hold
Road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once but now
We look it in the eye

There ain’t no load I can’t hold
Road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Until next time...
Erik
