Built For Speed, Baby


I think the Stray Cats were one of my first musical loves. I was 12. We used to have a yard with clothes lines to create perfect stages. Putting together a band wasn’t too difficult. My friend Forest was on bass. My little brother Timmy was always set up with his Fisher Price drums. And I, naturally, played the lead of Brian Setzer. Our lucky parents were often entertained with us lip singing and playing along for as many songs as they would sit through. And we were repeat performers. Ah, mesmerizing visuals, eh? Wish there was a picture, but since there is not this video will have to do. I was just listening to this song while working and it still ROCKS!


About christasterken

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
