There is nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment. Changing the oil on a vehicle, assembling the new coffee table or even simply reorganizing a space, the garage is where things get done! Here are just a few of the songs that I recommend for your next productive day in the garage.

“Takin’ Care of Business” Bachman-Turner Overdrive

The anthem for getting things done, whether it’s in the garage, house, yard, office, etc. Its driving beat and overall message will keep you motivated and focused.

“I’m in Love With My Car” — Queen

If the job is working on your hot rod, your motorcycle or your daily driver, this is the song you’ll want to hear when things don’t go your way. It will remind you of why you chose to be a DIY’er in the first place. No one loves your ride more than you.

“Here I Go Again” Whitesnake

Sometimes the task at hand requires some creativity. That’s when it’s time to throw the instructions out the window and solve the problem at hand with your own ingenuity and grit. This song will remind you to trust your instincts.

“One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” — George Thorogood and the Destroyers

It is important to remember that any work being done, whether it’s in the garage or elsewhere, is not completed without a refreshing beverage to reward your hard-earned victory.

“T.N.T.” — AC/DC

When all else fails, blow it up! If creativity and ingenuity fail, there can be a cathartic release in destruction.

Listen to Trevor Morgan on the Morning Shag with Shags & Trevor on 96.7 KCMQ. That’s where Trevor keeps his garage stereo tuned to hear his selections and more classic rock hits. (Please excuse the shameless plug from Trevor.)
