I blame Cameron and 95.5 The Mountain: Cameron for programming classic rock stations for the car radio and The Mountain for playing this every 1-1/2 hours. Part of what seemed like a lot of rebellion hits at the time, Steve Miller Band’s “Take The Money And Run” is a little bluesy pop number about a couple getting bored and robbing a house. An accidental death occurs, but they get away anyway because it wouldn’t make a good rock song if they were captured. Anyway, I hear this all the time. Not that it’s a bad thing, because I love doing the hand claps every time there’s a Texas reference. It reminds me of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.
