Song(s) of the South

Well, I took into consideration all of your suggestions for my Road Trip Playlist, then promptly ignored them and chose the following:

Life is a Highway / Rascal Flatts
Jambalaya (on the Bayou) / Harry Connick, Jr.
Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans / Harry Connick, Jr.
The Saints Are Coming / U2
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I / Ella Fitzgerald
The Mississippi Squirrel Revival / Ray Stevens
Sweet Home Alabama / Lynard Skynard
Why Georgia / John Mayer
Georgia on My Mind / Ray Charles
Carolina In My Mind / James Taylor
Tennessee/Arrested Development
Graceland / Paul Simon
God Blessed Texas / Little Texas
All My Exes Live in Texas / George Strait
Theme from "Dallas" / International Television Orchestra

I think they can be heard on iTunes here.

This may be the first time ever that Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Stevens have been on the same CD. I completely forgot to put Devil Went Down to Georgia on there, but it's just as well, because I really don't want to have to explain to my children the theological implications of fiddle contests, and how if you lose, the devil will git yer soul.

Also, when I made the CD I forgot that I will be driving through Arkansas on the way home. Better luck next time, Arkansas.


  1. I have been listening to way too much country music lately...your title made me think immediately of that Alabama song "Song, song of the South, sweet potato pie and hush my mouth." Yikes!

    Can't wait to see you!

  2. Hmmm, between Wendy's comment and your list I am totally feeling "The Laser Show". Safe travels my friend. I'll see you soon.

  3. looks like a fun list, and I'm not at all upset that you didn't put my devil went down to georgia song on it. I am disappointed that just this morning I remembered the song that was on the tip of my tongue when I read your previous post, and couldn't think of...

    Midnight Train to Georgia


    I'm partial to the Indigo Girls version.

  4. but the devil went down to georgia is SO FUN!!! LOL

  5. oh please say you are bringing copies to share!
