I am sitting here updating the forums I am subscribed to on here (My Diary is one of them) and I am listening to some good tunes on my phone and it got me thinking:

What kind of tunes yall like to listen to OTR? I mostly like stuff like CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival), C.W. McCall, most 80s to 2000s country, I will listen to just about anything. Anything from George Strait to MC Hammer. I love a broad range of tunes. My favorite one I can't stop listening to is Lookin' Out My Back Door by CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival). What are some of your favorites? Feel free to chime in on here.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Power metal. Bands like Iron Maiden, Manowar, Sabaton, Judas Priest, Hammerfall. I can't get tired of the energetic musicianship of the genre.

My favorite road music of all time is Bob Seger. Always has been. When I was 21 going to school for trucking I used to sit next to the Interstate every night and watch the trucks go by listening to Seger and just dying for my chance to get out there and do it. It was agonizing to have to wait and watch like that.

It's funny you just asked this because I was just jammin "The Fire Inside" on the piano. I'm just learning it. I keep trying to go to bed but then I'm like, "I've gotta play this one more time" and then I'm up for another half hour.

Its funny you mentioned Bob Seger! Two of his tunes are some of my all time favorites: The Fire Inside and Shakedown which was in Beverly Hills Cop 2. I also like Hollywood Nights, Night Moves, Turn The Page, Against the Wind, C'est La Vie, and I am sure there are a few others. He has some legendary good tunes.

This. My satellite radio is pretty much always on either Liquid Metal or Octane.

And if you haven't heard it yet, I highly recommend checking out Clear the Way (December 13, 1862) by Iced Earth. Amazing.

I listen to pretty much anything that has a good beat and understandable lyrics. Mostly I have 80s- current music. i have country, pop, rock, some classic rock. you might find a ub40 song playing after Eminem followed by Bad Company, then some Garth Brooks. It truly is all over the map

I absolutely love my SiriusXm Radio. So thankful that Prime has these in our trucks all we do is activate and pay for the subscription. Definitely makes the long hours of driving go by so much easier. I listen to a wide blend of music and talk radio depending on my mood that day. Here lately though I have been plugging my phone into the radio and actually listening to a lot of different podcasts. The Trucking Truth Podcast being one of those.

It always catches me off guard finding someone who enjoys heavy metal.smile.gif

Sirius XM rules, without a doubt. I mix it up a bit too. Since I am in my fifties, my favorite music is anything 80's. Occasionally I'll move over to the 70's or even earlier stuff. Rarely anything from grunge on up. My brother was the heavy metal guy, not me. Didn't grow up country, so that's not my thing either (though it chould, I guess, because almost all my adult life has been in pretty rural areas...)

Other music that makes the cut will anything from New Age to Chill to Religious to Classical.

As for non-musical listening, news and talk reigns. Occasionally Forensic Files on HLN, but that can get too gross to engage the mind listening to how they solve axe murder rape cases while driving at 2am. On the flip side, I enjoy listening to popular sports at times, at if I'm in the mood for an uplifting message I like hearing a Joel O'Steen sermon. I also will play motivational, spiritual or self-help CDs from my collection at home.

I try to stay away from negative programming, from vulgar comedy to Howard Stern to CNN. Lol.

Wow, I'm all over the place too.
