Not to be confused with blinker fluid, which needs to be changed every five years or fifty thousand miles, whichever comes first.
Today's songs that I would like to share with you are both good for playing loudly with the windows down. I have tested this myself and can confirm. That said, I should also note that the first of these songs made me inadvertently drive faster when I turned it up.
This was one of (if not the) first songs that I wrote when I picked up solo songwriting again about five and a half years ago. It's still one of my favorite songs to play. It's called Gravel Roads, from my 2017 album Weather Patterns. It's about the unexpected places that life takes us and the winding, often bumpy roads that take us there. [In reference to the article above, this song also features a progression that was born in Micronesia.]
The chorus goes like this:
Where do we go from here?
It could be anywhere
We don't know where we're going
Until we get there
The other of today's songs comes from Petrichor, the album that I released in June. It's called Dandelion Wine (If Only...). It has since become one of my favorite songs that I have written. Crank it up with your windows down and see if you agree.
If you want to sing along with the chorus, it goes like this:
Planted like a wallflower
Sipping dandelion wine
Daydreaming about tomorrow
When everything is fine
If only in my mind
As a bonus track, I'll share one more for today. This song is also from Weather Patterns. It's called Meand'er (and here is a live unplugged video of it). This one actually is about going for a drive with the windows down, so it made sense to include it here, even though it is the only of sixty-five songs that I have released over the past four years that does not have a drum track. As such, it may not rock quite as much as the other two. In other words, you might have to roll your windows up.
Thanks for listening. If you like what I'm doing, please share it with others.
Also, there's no such thing as blinker fluid.
