Racin In The Street Question...

Postby becmurr » Sat Apr 12, 2008 1:02 pm

Can anyone tell me why Patty sings Bruce's song Racin In The Street, with the line I got a fifty-nine Chevy with a 396, when the line is I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396?

Does anyone know?

I will be interested to see if anyone can answer that question. What I can say is that the Chevy 396 did not exist until '65. I know because I drooled over it during a period when my primary interests, in order, were (1) cars, (2) girls, and (3) music. That was a tough time because I couldn't afford item (1), I couldn't figure out item (2), so I took solace in item (3). That's also why Racing in the Street is one of my all time favorite songs, whether performed by Bruce, Emmylou, or Patty (although I've never heard Patty's performance).

I love Patty singing this but as an even bigger fan of Bruce-I just wondered if anyone knew.....

I mean that I would expect that if Patty touches it, it's gonna be good.
