On the Road Again by Willie Nelson is one of the best songs ever conceived. It’s such a classic song that many people find themselves humming it or singing it aloud in the car on a road trip or just when they’re walking down a corridor at work. You could even find it playing in your head for no reason at all other than to hear something pleasant and comfortable. That’s the most basic draw of the song in fact, the level of comfort it brings to the listener. It’s hard to deny that this song is just like a bit blanket for the soul when it’s needed, something to keep you warm inside when you hear it playing. I don’t think it’s just me that feels this way but it might be just me that will actually say it out loud.
I doubt it, but anyway, here are some of the best representations of this song.
5. The Muppets
Willie Nelson has been around so long that he’s managed to hobnob with just about everyone in some way, shape, or form, and the Muppets are no exception. He’s been such a mainstay of pop culture overall that there isn’t a lot that he hasn’t done and even less venues where he hasn’t at least been mentioned in some way. The guy is just one of the most well-known people on the planet.
This would describe Frank Gallagher to a tee since the guy’s almost never in the same spot due to his excessive drinking. While I haven’t watched every season yet I can honestly say that the Gallagher’s are a confusing clan that seem to always come out of whatever mess Frank gets them into in some way that no one else in their right mind would ever think about.
3. Dumb and Dumber To
In some ways this movie had to be made, but in others it probably should have been left alone. The reason for both of these is that the dynamic between Harry and Lloyd is so messed up that you have to wonder how they remain friends throughout the years, while on the other hand you have to ask yourself if you really care anymore. Obviously we do since I can guess that more than a few people have seen this movie.
2. Family Guy
Ever notice how Stewie and Brian always seem to end up together somehow? They don’t seem to like each other, though Stewie seems to harbor some strange attraction for Brian that he rarely if ever shows. Still, it’s probably the fact that Stewie is still, after all these years, a baby and that Brian has at least a shred of a conscience that doesn’t allow him to just leave the kid on the side of the road.
This is the one that kicked off the franchise. There’s rumor that there might be another one coming, but so far none of them have really topped the original when it comes to the good feeling that was invoked by this troublesome ogre. Shrek has become such a well-known character that he’s now close to being an integral part of the holidays and everyday life in some cases.
On the road again….
