Guntruck Songs

     As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…

ACE OF SPADES:

PLAYBOYS:

ROAD RUNNER:

BLACK WIDOW:

RUNNIN’ BARE:

Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!

And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”

RUNNING BEAR:

 (A LOT of good music came from the ’60s.  Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)

SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)

WILD THING:

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

THE CREEPER:

TheCreeperDCcomic

I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Doesn’t take too much to get me listening to those great songs of the ’60’s…John reminded me of another song by The Kinks (and another Guntruck!)

SET ME FREE:

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb
