Radio Chuggabug


Un tempo questo blog aveva una colonna sonora.
Era una playlist di sottofondo che ben si sposava col tema del viaggiare e che dava un accenno a ciò che ascoltavo, con gli auricolari passanti, durante i lunghi spostamenti precedenti al mio trasferimento.
Poi per vari motivi tecnici e non, la colonna sonora sul blog l'ho tolta. Tuttavia, la musica resta e ogni volta che apro una pagina, giro tra i vecchi post o cerco qualcosa, è un po' come se la sentissi. E ogni volta che salgo in sella e mi allontano dal centro abitato, lungo le strade di campagna, quella stessa colonna sonora ampliata e arricchita mi risuona automaticamente nelle orecchie come se qualcuno accendesse la radio. La mia radio ideale. Radio Chuggabug.
Per memoria, la vecchia playlist era questa:

Lullaby - Dixie Chicks
Copperline live at Colonial Theatre - James Taylor
Godspeed - Dixie Chicks
Water of love - Dire Straits
Lavender - Marillion
Destination anywhere - The Commitments
Darling pretty - Dire Straits
Anna begins - Counting Crows
News - Dire Straits
Catapult - Counting Crows
A long december - Counting Crows
A thousand miles - Vanessa Carlton
Mustang sally - The Commitments
Miles from nowhere - Cat Stevens
Hard sun - Eddie Vedder
Travelin' soldier - Dixie Chicks
Cowboys - Counting Crows
Round here - Counting Crows
Where the streets have no name - Vanessa Carlton
Lady writer - Dire Straits
Once, this blog had a soundtrack.
It was a background playlist which went well with the theme of travel and could give a hint of what I listened to, with open earphones, during those long commutes before I moved.
Then, for various technical and common reasons, I had to remove the soundtrack. Though, the music remained and every time I visit a page, browse through old posts or look for something it's just like it was still there. And every time I get on the saddle and leave the town through country roads, that very same soundtrack, expanded and enhanced, automatically resonates in my ears as if someone turns the radio on. My ultimate radio. Radio Chuggabug.
For future reference, the playlist was this one:

Lullaby - Dixie Chicks
Copperline live at Colonial Theatre - James Taylor
Godspeed - Dixie Chicks
Water of love - Dire Straits
Lavender - Marillion
Destination anywhere - The Commitments
Darling pretty - Dire Straits
Anna begins - Counting Crows
News - Dire Straits
Catapult - Counting Crows
A long december - Counting Crows
A thousand miles - Vanessa Carlton
Mustang sally - The Commitments
Miles from nowhere - Cat Stevens
Hard sun - Eddie Vedder
Travelin' soldier - Dixie Chicks
Cowboys - Counting Crows
Round here - Counting Crows
Where the streets have no name - Vanessa Carlton
Lady writer - Dire Straits
