The Ultimate Road Trip Playlist — 50 Best Road Trip Songs | The Jetpacker No road trip is complete without a playlist of songs that capture the spirit of traveling on the open road. So we’ve compiled a list of the 50 best road trip songs . In order to make this be-all end-all totally definitive list that all other lists look up to, the songs had to meet the following criteria: a.) encompass the excitement and freedom of road tripping b.) make the time pass faster c.) keep you awake without the assistance of questionably legal pills named “No Doze” d.) contain lyrics so singable that you’ll legitimately consider trying out for the next “American Idol” e.) keep you distracted long enough to make you forget you need to pee (which subsequently means stopping at a heinous rest stop where the bathroom stalls are tagged with death threats and truckers hit on you) f.) drown out the sound of your annoying friend who complains about a developing deep vein thrombosis from being crammed in the backseat (tough it up!) 50.

Since the heyday of hip-hop, one man has been broadcasting the music videos, the culture and the people in the community all throughout New York City. McDaniels knows everybody. The man widely known as Uncle Ralph has stories we want to share, so occasionally on The Record he'll pick a classic video and take us behind the scenes. Illmatic is now considered a classic — a masterwork of story-telling, lyricism and beat-making. In the early to mid-'90s hip-hop was at a creative peak, as regional styles were maturing and bleeding into each other. "I call it street corner rap," McDaniels says. The winter before Illmatic was due to be released, executives from Nas' record label asked McDaniels to make a video package they could send around the media to drum up coverage of the album. Ralph McDaniels: "Nas is from Queensbridge. "I had been familiar with Nas, and he had a big buzz.

Metroactive Music | Gerry Goffin Out of the Back Room: Gerry Goffin Legendary lyricist Gerry Goffin resurfaces with 'Back Room Blood' By Nicky Baxter FOR THOSE OF US who presumed that songwriter-turned-singer Gerry Goffin, now 50, had either died or disappeared from the planet, Back Room Blood (Adelphi/Genes) gives evidence of a welcome rejuvenation. Best known for his pop-making partnership and marriage to singer/songwriter Carole King (he wrote the lyrics for such hits as "Go Away Little Girl," "Oh, No, Not My Baby"), Goffin has returned with an album of his own material that roils with the kind of astringent emotionalism ordinarily reserved for brash and brutal youth. The opening track sums up Goffin's comeback. Although Back Room Blood bristles with the passion of a gonna-be 21-year-old, its maturity could only come from an individual who's been around a while. The disc is a collaborative effort from front to back. In graphic contrast to Goffin's classic pop tracks with King--think "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"
