Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Talk about someone with a powerful voice that just pops out of a car speaker on its own - Rick Astley!

Only one of the greatest songs ever to sing alone in a car on a (semi) cross-country trip, especially in the middle of the night in Nowheresville U.S.A., with your window down and the wind-rushing past you. 
And being able to fully see the stars!

In 1988, for me, that was usually a Chicago-to-Miami roundtrip road trip, loaded with lots of cold Cherry Coke in an Igloo cooler, and would usually happen in either south-central Tennessee or in Georgia between Atlanta and Macon.
Around 3:20 a.m.

*Coming or going, the worst part of that drive was always between 3:45 and 5:00 a.m.

I last mentioned favorite songs of mine that I loved singing and listening to on road trips by myself on April 8, 2012, in my post titled, Bringing out the Cow Bells for Easter! Stevie Wonder's genius "Another Star" still sends me -and reminds me of cross-country drives at night with the windows down, his music filling every inch of the car
