Why, Me and My RC, the album, courtesy of the amazing pop culture blog Stax-O-Wax. It’s basically an album of all the songs used in RC commercials in the 70’s. I love how it’s so fucking down to earth and old school and country and never heard of a computer, so you should drink it. I think we’ve come back to this point, or at least were there a couple of years ago. Where you’re not allowed to not like Nascar or country music because of 9-11.

Check out the track listing, there’s a certain art to it, who and what it describes.

1. Overture; Stock Car
2. Truck Driver
3. Lawyer; Theme Music; Freckle-Face
4. Executive Decision
5. Blacksmith
6. Crop Seeder; Theme Music; Farm Girl
7. Basketball
8. Riverboat; Theme Music; Georgia Nights
9. Fiddler

It’s either a Dane Cook album or songs praising a soft-drink, I just can’t tell.

If you go to Stax-O-Wax you will note a link to this site.

Moon Pies and RC cola? Okay, fine, I could see the combination, sounds good on a hot day. Verye oldey tymey. But what’s with all the Southern Pride? Can we make a commission that declares what the South is allowed to get prideful about? I think they’re abusing it by bringing Moon Pies and RC up to the level of Plantation Architecture, really good bicuits and gravy, and cane-pole fishing. I have no problem with Southern Pride, I spent a lot of time in the south and with the exception of all the stupid people I liked it, plenty to be prideful for. But this?

And you wouldn’t understand?THEN DON’T BRING IT UP!

Hilariously, this tagline has been appropriated from black culture, a series of t-shirts I seem to remember, that started popping up around 1988 (in Ohio, that is, probably 1982 in New York)
