Jay is in with not one but two lists for Episode 47. One for a regular party and one for a party in his hometown of Olds. In his words
I couldn’t submit a personal list with out accompanying it with a list from the birthplace of partying......Olds. If you are ever at a party there (and not getting sprayed by a fire extinguisher) and “playing with the boys” comes on......beer will start magically spraying everywhere!
GOOD TALK RUSS

4. “Thursday Night” - CHIXDIGGIT!
5. “Resignation” - FACE TO FACE
I don't have time for a long run down, but here is my list.
Every good road trip needs a trucker at the wheel, and truckers run off country music. Like you mentioned on the episode, you also need songs everyone can sing, and me first is a perfect "meet in the middle" for us punk folk when we travel with regular people.
Every good road trip needs some good ramones core. Might as well play one of the best doing it.
Like I said, you need truck'n music for any long haul road trips, that's how we felt in Olds anyway. His two solo albums are pure gold.
Not sure I have ever used this band on a list, but I love this song. It always makes me think about driving. Give it a listen if you haven't played it in a while.
God damn, I know this one is too easy but I don't give a shit. His greatest hits album is the ALL TIME greatest must play road trip sound track. It's long and amazing. I think I purposely save this album for long trips, had to use it here!
Till next time!
