Day 134

I guess these are the songs I should have been humming

August 7th, 2010


  1. John in MI says:

    What an awesome tape. I think I had them on one album or another!

  2. hks says:

    Just like you can hear the ocean when holding a seashell to your ear, I think you might be able to hear the cruisin’ classics, if you put your ear near one of the cassette holes. :)

  3. young says:

    Classic Rocks! Priceless!

  4. katzien in austin says:

    Wow, all good tunes! What a freaky coincidence too. It’s not very weathered, so I’m guessing it hasn’t been there long.

  5. Candice In Alabama says:

    Just what songs HAVE you been HUMMING?

  6. At least it’s not an “8 track” cartridge…or 33LP…or a 78…but probably Matt doesn’t have the player he needs…but I didn’t build the “Mattmobile”…who knows what secrets lie within that inscrutable design…(mystery music please…preferably IPod or whatever)…

  7. Al says:

    I definitely remember these tapes. They were great on the long roadtrips I took as a kid during the late 80s.

  8. earl says:

    ahh the SHELL record label..they have their hands in everything…

  9. Sarah says:

    My family had that tape and all the other volumns when we were growing up, we used to listen to it all the time!

  10. Al Nei says:

    Bet it got jettisonned after one too many listens. There was probably a music selection showdown and the tape became the ultimate casualty. Out the window at 65 MPH is no way to end a long and storied career.

  11. MN Roxanne says:

    oh those beloved cassettes…. still have some…

  12. Gigi says:

    They didn’t throw out Cruisin’ Classics Vol. I .. it must have a better song selection than this.

  13. jeff says:

    Wow what’s that thing? What? something that big only holds 14 songs…..geese my Ipod is the same size and it holds a thousand….dude.

  14. John in MI says:

    ” (hobo) people all over the world…start a love train…love train”

  15. Doris says:

    Some of my favorites on that tape.

  16. Doris says:

    Hey Matt, why don’t you play us a song on your harmonica, record it and put it up on your website. I for one would love that. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Don! Where are you man? This is perfect for you! It’s right up your alley. Matt found hits on the roadside like you find them on the youtube. Hope you’re okay out there in TN. I’m worried now, no Don for this one? Somethings not right.
    Wonder if this has anything to do with the other items found along the roadside along the way? Maybe this is all in reverse and the music drove the person to drink and by the time they got to MN they couldn’t take it any longer, was so drunk and started taking it out on the toys? And here we thought it was the opposite way around.

  18. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Well Matt?? Did you pick it up and take it with you? After all you are a cruisin’ kind of guy.

  19. MacAlastair says:

    My mother had that tape when I was a kid… It’s probably kicking around in a box of tapes somewhere… Ah, random memories of family road trips…

  20. Janine says:

    OMG we had that tape, too! Purchased from a Shell gas station.
