When I was younger, cruising around a certain city block was huge in my town.
I mean, I'm from Main Street U.S.A. You think of perfect small town America? I'm from that town. From my world view, the kids I went to school with were from great homes - and I'm talking parents here, not bricks and mortar. Of course, we all have our problems, but these were (are) good people. My high school football team was strong - yes, we had back to back perfect seasons. The cheerleaders were attractive. Students were competitive honor-roll wise.

So, Main Street U.S.A. didn't have much action on a Friday or Saturday night. There were two options for dates: the movies and cruising.
In that instance, I would always choose movies. To be honest, cruising used to always bore me to tears. I mean, how many times can a person drive around the same city block, stuck in traffic?
The answer is a lot of times!
The only good part about cruising...was the music. When I was really "young," Glam was the biggest music of the day. At this age, I wasn't crusing with friends. More like riding through town with my parents - but you could easily hear the music waft from the cars. Years later, I cruised for real - and controlled the music, too.
There are some songs that just beg to be played in a car. Fast and loud is usually a prerequisite - of course, that's just my opinion. I know some people don't like a big racket while driving. I've never lived that way.
My top 10 cruising songs (and yeah, I threw in a couple modern tunes):
Toys in the Attic - Aerosmith
Public Enemy #1 - Motley Crue
Get It While It's Hot - Kix
Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen
It's Hot Tonight - Alice Cooper
Unholy Confessions - Avenged Sevenfold
Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
Guilty - Bonham
Crazy Bitch - Buckcherry
The Last Mile - Cinderella
The only rule is that, of course, "The Last Mile" must be played at the end of the cruise. Or when you run out of gas. You know, whichever comes first.
