This solo effort from Asleep at the Wheel lead singer Ray Benson finds him plotting a romantic trip with his leading lady where the intention is to get lost.
Benson wrote the song with Willie Nelson. "We were on his bus and I told him I had an idea for a song and started messing around and he started messing around on the guitar and he wrote the music while I f--ked around on it," Benson told us. "Then I went and finished the words - he didn't even write the words to that, which is the opposite of a Willie Nelson song. But he had done something funny on the guitar and went, 'Oh, that's really cool if I do this,' and then we smoked a bunch of dope and he forgot about it."
This song has a jazz feel far different from Benson's sound with Asleep at the Wheel. "Jazz is the highest form of songwriting," he told us.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
