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

My wife was sure this song was about a 1969 Chevrolet Apollo, but that nameplate didn’t appear until 1973. The lyrics sort of seem like they’re talking about a car, but I’m pretty sure this is referring to the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. That Chevy SS up there is just to confuse you.


Because that’s what these guys wanted. Confusion. Right?
