Top 50 Favourite Songs: Lou Noble

So, I live in Los Angeles, which means I spend an inordinate amount of time in the car.

So my favorite songs are really my “favorite songs to listen to while I’m driving my car…dangerously fast,” because I used to drive an ambulance, and still have a weird addiction to driving too fast while playing good music real loud (which we did in the ambulance while the lights and sirens were going…what, you thought we just listened to the siren? That’d be crazy).

  1. One of the regrets I have with my own list is not laying out the criteria for my picks–or at least the criteria that explains at least 35-40 of my 50 selections. But I can now basically sum it up by noting: What Lou Said.

    True, I don’t live in L.A., I’ve never driven an ambulance, and I’m only a mild speedster (rarely drive the speed limit on the highway, but am hardly reckless about it), but yeah, a good portion of my list lives behind the wheel as it were.
