Heart - 'Barracuda'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Let’s do a song actually about a car today, why not? Well, unless they’re actually referring to the fish? The car had the largest piece of glass ever in a car when it came out in 1964, and the fish is of the family Sphyraenidae and has an unsually large swim bladder.


Neither of those facts is referenced in the song.

I wonder if anyone ever did a song about the AMC Marlin?
