Song and road.

Every once in a while, I’ll find a perfect combination of song and road. Today I had one – Pet Shop Boys “Somewhere” came on just as I was getting onto I-290 as it starts in Hudson and it just seemed right. THe song picked up just as I went under the 495 ramp and… well,  it was just right.

For those keeping score, the other spots I’ve had this that I can remember are:

I-84 westbound just before exit 8, Abba’s “Dancing Queen”

I-390 north over a hill just before I-90, Depeche Mode’s “Get Right With Me”

I-87 north through Saratoga Springs, Prodigy’s “Voodoo People”

Anyone else have anything?

As if I didn’t ignore this site enough…

But where before I just didn’t bother to update this out of sheer laziness or lack of anything worthwhile to say, now I have a bona-fide excuse. I’m going to be a daddy at the end of July. Needless to say, both Kelly & I are excited – me probably more so, but that has to do with the fact that I’m not the one who has to carry it around for the next 5 months. Still, I have a lot of projects to do around the house – and roadgeeking time is pretty much cut to near nothing (which is where it’s been for the past few years anyways).

Wouldn’t trade it for anything, though.
