Whenever I’m feeling low and just need a place to go, I go into my car and play my favorite song to drive to. I know many other guys like me who have a similar ritual. Honestly, if it weren’t for my love of cars and this song I think there have been enough tragedies in my life to make me think I might be in jail if I didn’t have something to help me calm down and cope with loss.
This ritual of mine, of playing the same song on repeat for several hours while just driving around my city for the heck of it, has saved my life, has kept me sober when I wanted nothing more than to escape from reality.
I owe my luck and fortune to “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” by McFadden & Whitehead. If you know this song then you’ll know why it’s so nice to listen to while driving. After all, no one can stop you when you’re in a one ton truck going 60 miles per hour.
So here I will share my favorite song to drive to and hope that young men l0oking for a mechanism to cope with hardship these days can find this gem and avoid doing anything they’d regret.
