FREE e-book "8 Things to Know About Veterinary Care"

June 28, 2007

Thanks to the iPod nano that Lilly and I received as a prize for raising money last summer for the Humane Society of Boulder Valley I have a new appreciation for music lyrics. There’s something about being audibly cocooned with songs that allows me to hear the lyrics in a way I don’t if music just plays in the background. Here’s a song that struck me as a good agility road trip theme. So, in honor of all of you who will be traveling to big trials all over the country heading into Independence Day “weekend,” here’s a little tune.

Tom Petty “Big Weekend” from album Highway Companion

The chorus lyrics go like this:

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust.
Yeah, a big weekend.
If you don’t run, you rust.

  1. Nice song indeed! My road trip song is Accidentally In Love by Counting Crows. It’s a rather goofy song but there’s something in the song’s energy that can revive me.
