Modern Rock Holiday: Planes, Trains and Automobiles Theme

25 Nov

Sometimes in business travel, you’re Steve Martin (Neal): sophisticated, reserved, well-dressed. But every messy incident on the road with other people is uncomfortable.

Sometimes in business travel, you’re John Candy (Del): not the sharpest or coolest guy. But your customers like you. And your wife likes you. What you see is what you get.  

Sometimes getting home is all that matters. Cue the theme to Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

I am not a big fan of electronic music. But I love the song Red River Rock by The Silicon Teens. I am posting about it here due to its connection to holiday music and Thanksgiving even thought the tune itself has nothing to do with either. But this electronic version of the old folk tune “Red River Valley” is my favorite Thanksgiving song due to its prominence in the now-classic movie, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Enjoy below and Happy Thanksgiving!
