  • Name those songs

    I was listening to this tune and I was surprised I hadn't remembered who is mentioned in it before:

    Anyone else want to add their favorite tune with Studebaker in it? I have one other one, but I'll wait to see if anyone else likes the song too....

              A 'very catchy' song, devoted to a Studebaker, is "Antique '32 Studebaker Dictator Coupe" by Ronny and the Daytonas....('Little G.T.O.' fame)......It's on You-Tube!

                  I don't think ANY of these are actually ABOUT a Studebaker, but then I am not going to listen to all that junk to maybe find one word "Studebaker" somewhere in there to find out either.

                  Here is one of the ONLY Songs I know of that actually IS about a Studebaker:

                    Primus?! I'll have to check that one out. Nice. Several of those I don't recall being brought up. I knew about Billy the Mountain and Virginia Plain, but I just heard mention of the Warren Zevon song.
                    Going to Mexico, We Didn't Start the Fire, Virginia Plain and Billy the Mountain ARE about a Studebaker. I think the Steve Miller song is my favorite Studebaker reference and I remember noticing it at the time when the song came out.

                        "Betty Lou's Got a New Pair of Shoes" by Bobby Freeman (of "Cmon and Swim" fame)...it's not exactly "Studebaker," but doggone close, starting at 1:03.

                            There's a music video (song is called 'free') by Haley Reinhart (Former American idolist) that has a Studebaker in it.... not about a Studebaker, but it's close.
