VOD: Hollywood Nights

In the lead-up to the August music special, each video of the day will highlight a SoCal oriented music video. Here's today's pick:

Bob Seger's classic is one of the ultimate Los Angeles songs. "Hollywood Nights" captures the allure and wonder of Los Angeles and Hollywood while also managing to tap into L.A.'s car culture with its racy beat, fast pace, and lyrics about driving. The song is widely considered to be one of the best car/cruising songs of all time. As Youtube user agingcynic writes: "I have gotten three moving violations in my life. All of them were [while] listening to this song."

"They drove for miles and miles
Up those twisting turning roads
Higher and higher and higher they climbed

And those Hollywood nights
In those Hollywood hills"

There isn't an official music video for "Hollywood Nights," but this home music video by Youtube user c075 is pretty good.
