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 a list from The Islander’s Lisa Williams, who recently cut her bridge-crossing needs by moving back to the Island from the mainland.

1. “Highway To Hell,” by AC/DC.

2. “All Summer Long,” by Kid Rock.

3. “Feel Like A Number,” by Bob Seger.

4. “Miracle,” by Barry Manilow.

5. “Soul Man,” by the Blues Brothers.

6. “Going Mobile,” by The Who.

7. “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” by Simon and Garfunkel.

8. “If You're Goin’ Through Hell,” by Rodney Atkins.

9. “Beat It,” by Michael Jackson.

10. “Under Pressure,” by David Bowie/Queen.

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 enclose a CD.
