Neil Diamond - Forever in Blue Jeans (Stereo!)

This is why YouTube is so damn addictive. You are hanging out minding your own business and you hear a song that throws you into a complete timewarp. Before YouTube existed you could shake the feeling after a couple of hours, but now I know that my laptop is just waiting for me to go find the best video of the melody that is haunting me.

You are thinking, "Seriously, this song?" Yes. It reminds me of riding in my dad's truck as a kid. His truck smelled like roof shingles, fish bait and Brut cologne. the windows were open , and we were flying down the freeway to go camping/swimming/fishing. My dad would be chatting on his C.B. radio to some random truckers (his handle was The Michigander) and my brother and I would be muching on cherries and spitting the pits out the windows.

Ok I feel better now.
