Cars: Traffic Jam

James Taylor: Traffic Jam


Someone wise once said that the plural of cars is traffic. Here, infamous folk crooner James Taylor at his white man's grooviest, live and almost funky in a middle-aged, "oh, Dad" sort of way, takes a lighthearted swipe at the commuter lifestyle. And how's this for commitment to the theme:

When I die, I don't want no coffin
I've thought about far too often
Just strap me in behind the wheel
And bury me in my automobile

Fans of a capella covers will also enjoy this tight take on JT's original:
