    This one is one of my favorites, it stars my favorite truck, I have driven one in very similar terrain in Botswana and South Africa.
    She was a ex police 2H diesel with a 5 speed gearbox and still had her police canopy and had been painted black (bloody hot to drive in the heat) with red and grey stripe highlights.
    she had a plastic 200 lt diesel reserve tank in the bed behind the cab and a stainless steel 50 lt water tank under the bed between the chassis rails.
    This song always brings back flashbacks, whats your song?

    One of many
    But this first springs to mind for many reasons.
    One of the late Boyd Coddington’s finest being one of them.

    Good song Julian and a great thread start. I've previously thought that the forum doesn't have a music thread.



    This song takes me back a couple of decades and feel back there each time I hear it ! Lol:thumbup:

    For all the wrong reasons



    I was about 16 and it seems like i was fighting every time i heard it in the biggest laser discotheque in Europe as they liked to call it , though it seems the latter years of the clubs history has been erased ?

    ZZ Top, yes they are good, that car has starred in a few of their music videos.
    And London Grammar, never heard of them, will have to have a listen.

    Human League, Oh my that takes me back, can almost remember the sounds of the doves and the smell of the fields of my boarding school in summer.

    Blondie yes but she does not bring back memories of hot dry heat, dust and the African bush for me :(

    Staying in the same decade, ‘Rent’ has always been one of my favourites. More to do with the dark, seedy streetscapes around Euston and Kings X than the opulence of the rich or the disputed meaning of the lyrics ...



    Plus it stars Margi Clarke, who played an English prostitute in my all-time favourite film, Helsinki-Napoli All Night Long, a bag-full-of-cash caper about a Finnish cabbie in West Berlin who steals a suitcase full of money from two French gangsters working for an American boss and with the help of a Russian scrap merchant manages to get away with it and stay married to his disgruntled Italian wife. This trailer is in Finnish but in the film everyone speaks English to some degree.

    Of a similar era Berlin had this.


    The album was actually pretty decent, and it surprisingly contained arguably two of the best guitar solos on the planet, in one track, courtesy of a guest guitarist by the name of Mr David Gilmour. Sorry, not exactly a video.

    Not a video sadly, there isn't one but if you know this song then I am impressed.
    I can remember listening to this one on the car radio as a kid.



    And StarCruiser's first post reminded me of this one, it's long been one of my favorites.

    LOL- Shayne - I remember ZZ Top triple play at the IOM Palace Lido - great days. I was even there the night the Lido ended up on Hit Man and Her - so, get drunk, mess about, go home and watch yourself on TV.

    Also been in there in TT week when they reckoned there was 4,000 bikers present.

    Good times.

If memory serves i was actually driving through the place in a mini dump truck working on the cinema extension that same week !
