Went to the Danish Elvis museum, "Graceland Randers", today. Made me very sad. I don't think anyone ever truly knew the man, apart from his mother.

***Some say you should live each day like it was your last... but who wants to live each day in wild panic and extreme death anxiety?

The universe, look at the hugeness of it... it is a dizzying thought that little ol' me is the centre of it all!***

The place without no SHAME, is what this decodes into. Or, technically, "without shame", the linguistic double-negative is a black thing. Unless of course Jacko was a mathematician, in which case minus times minus turns into plus. Possibly that was the true paradox of the poor man's life. World-famous yet unidentified from the most basic point of existence. I don't believe anyone ever knew who he was, including himself. Plastic soul, unlike Elvis. You could actually hear Elvis' soul. Poor bastards, the lot.

Seeing @John post a Chris Rea clip in another music thread made me remember this song which is a sort of car song.... The bloke is a genius and an absolute car and motor racing nut as a bonus.

Chris Rea - The road to hell


*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

You picked the wrong Chris Rea song...



Saudade, 1 &2 (Tribute to Ayrton Senna).
Saudade, Saudade,
Saudade, Saudade
Nothing lasts forever
But somethings end too soon
Now those fields of fascination
Are just dull and empty rooms
But oh, that luck what did it show
Close the book,
Now we will never know
Saudade, Saudade
2018 GTP Accuracy champion.

There are so many Chris Rea racing driver inspired songs....

Another is for Johnny Herbert.

Johnny Needs A Fast Car

A song about Keke Rosberg, by Galician punk band (!) Siniestro Total. Didn't see this one posted yet, so here you go.



Also, I browsed quickly through the pages, and didn't see this one posted. It's a masterpiece, so don't mind if I missed someone already adding it.



And finally, Finnish singer Arttu Wiskari has a fair few ones which touch car themes. "Mökkitie" became a hit, and it name-drops Henri Toivonen, "Rally idol of young boys", but I'm gonna go with a different one. It's called "Sorateiden Sankarit", which means "Heroes of the Gravel" (well, gravel roads, but that sounds a bit clunky, nay?)

Even has an official music video. Amidst the moonspeak, one may note some familiar words. :)

"Yup, there is no doubt that Joonas marches to the beat of a different drummer. I think his goal may be to be the next Murray Walker."
