Drive-time tracks


Spending more time in the auto these days with the closure of the Anna Maria Island Bridge and a detour to Cortez Road?

The Islander invites you to share your favorite drive-time tunes. Give us a list with 10 tracks you think other motorists should download from iTunes, load up on iPods or burn to a disc.

Here is Islander reporter Lisa Neff’s music for a Friday morning traffic jam:

1. “Crosstown Traffic” by Jimi Hendrix.

2. “Highway to Hell,” ACDC.

3. “Drive My Car,” the Beatles.

4. “Take it Easy,” the Eagles.

5. “Low Rider,” War.

6. “Me and Bobby McGee,” Janice Joplin.

7. “Slow Ride,” Foghat.

8. “Ramble On,” Led Zeppelin.

9. “Ramblin’ Man,” the Allman Brothers.

10. “Born to be Wild,” Steppenwolf.

Send your list of 10 tracks to The Islander via e-mail to, or via mail to 5404 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach FL 34217. Please include your name, address and a contact number. And, if you really want to impress us, maybe a CD.
