No, you were right to begin with.

Excerpt from the lyrics as written and sung rather than someones interpretation on Google or wiki:

My uncle preserved for me an old machine
For fifty odd years
To keep it as new has been his dearest dream

I strip away the old debris
That hides a shining car
A brilliant red Barchetta
From a better vanished time
I fire up the willing engine
Responding with a roar
Tires spitting gravel
I commit my weekly crime


It was a gleaming alloy air car, then shortly later a second, persuing the 50 year old Barchetta with the tires that spit gravel which later also shrieked as he spun around to run the deadly race back to his white haired uncle's place.

im not to picky..50's 60's some 80's 90's..rock, rap metal, "odd" stuff like primus, and such...NO classical and NO country

as of late ive gotten bit by tecno in general...its easy to drive to and great for in the shop working on projects...no lyrics to get in the way...but you have to stay away from the repetitive crap...for working in the shop i find it quite motivating...but ive got gigs and gigs of mp3's on the shop PC which feeds thru a old car deck built into the PC case feeding out to old 6x9's in the corners of the shop.........everything from classic hotrod stuff( beach boys, 409, lil duece coupe etc) ZZ-top run DMC, primus, NIN , eminem, aerosmith, , sammy haggar, metalica, green jello, eminem, and piles and piles of techno...just to name a few......theres enuf mp3's on the shop pc to run continuously for about 2 week 24/7 without repeating the same song( but i add and remove constantly)

if i do get bored i can switch the deck over to am/fm and tune in any station( since its still a 90's car stereo unit powered off the pc power supply with the sound card feeding into the "line in" on the deck) ...compact was the idea

Wow, That was the 1st album I ever bought, I was 16- Loved it and wore it out !!! Talk about time travel...

Lets see I believe I have done this before on this board but here goes the top 3 albums:

1. American Beauty- Grateful Dead
2. The Wheel- Jerry Garcia
3. Tommy- The Who

And the #1 Album to have on a Deserted Island with my Alfa and an attractive, buxom, sensual, energetic, delicious young woman who can dance the dance.....Sade'. (I know, I know, but dont judge me..my wife will do that..)

Get out there and DRIVE !

I also like Tommy and remember seeing the movie with Tina Turner in Cinerama or whatever that is called where you feel like you're riding the wild river on the raft etc. (I know different movie, How the West Was Won, but it gave a good example of what I was trying to describe.)

I wonder if Verizon has seen the movie or listened to the album...."Tommy, can you hear me?"

Mostly Italian for me. Vasco Rossi, RAF, Ligabue, Giorgia, Fabrizio de Andre', etc. etc. Then 70's-80's-90's. Don't appreciate much most new music.

Paul McCartney fully muted on the TV while Tom Waits swordfishtrombones plays on the old fashioned stereo, followed by John Hartford and then my real fav, the Trail Band. Life is good.

Todays toy count: 2012 Challenger, 97 SVT Cobra conv, 74 BMW r60/6, 52 Chevy Styleline Deluxe, (last of 12 previous Alfa's now gone).

I also saw How the West Was Won on Cinerama in a really classy theatre in Houston when I was 12 or 13. Fantastic visuals. I think your right about Tina and her scene in Tommy, one of the best performances by a musical legend in a movie... Just wicked!
