Monday’s Music Moves Me (September 7, 2020): Truck Driver Songs

Hi everyone on this mixed Monday, Labor Day in the United States. It isn’t here, as Labor Day in Europe is May 1. I’m really uninspired to write, but still want to get something onto the blog. For this reason, I’m for the first time in forever participating in Monday’s Music Moves Me. The theme is a freebie, but I’m uninspired for a topic too, so thought I’d choose Labor Day anyway. Since my husband is a truck driver, I then thought to share some songs celebrating the labor of trucking. Here goes.

This would absolutely never happen to my husband. He is an excellent truck driver. That is, sometimes the transport planners send him down an impossible route. He had that happen today. Thankfully, he flat out refused to go there.

This doesn’t happen to my husband either, as nowadays truck drivers don’t have to change the tires on their trucks. I love this song though. My husband introduced me to Tom Astor before he was a truck driver himself. I enjoy his songs more now than does my husband.

Okay, it gets boring. This doesn’t happen to my husband either, as he’s a national driver, which in the Netherlands means he gets home at night. Dave Dudley was introduced to me through Truck Stop, a German country band whose members admire him. I even reckon Dave Dudley is more popular, relatively speaking, in Hamburg than in the United States.

That’s it for now. I’m off to bed soon. Have a great evening or night.

  1. I think the last thing I expected to hear today was a truck driving song in German. But of course, why not? I also learned what “Radwechsel” meant. All three of these songs were enjoyable. Years ago I lived in a part of the United States (Arkansas) where a lot of people made their living in over the road trucking, getting home perhaps once a week. It’s a hard life, even being a driver that is able to come over at night. My boss’s son in law is an over the road trucker.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by. Yes, it may’ve been a bit of a long shoot to come up with a German truck driving song. Then again, it’s a freebie week, right?


  2. There are a number of guys DH went to high school with who became truck drivers and one of the fellas I know still sits behind the wheel for a living. I can’t imagine being on the road but we need people like this to keep our country going anytime but especially during this COVID crisis. Everyone is ready for life to get back to normal. Your songs were new to me. I’m glad you decided to join the 4M crew on the dance floor. Stay safe, be well, and have a boogietastic week, darlin’!

    1. Thanks so much for commenting. I agree we need truck drivers to keep the world going. My husband thankfully for this reason didn’t lose his work when non-essential workers were told to either work from home or take leave (thankfully compensated by the government) because of the coronavirus crisis.
