    Anybody notice a slight similarity between the melody of Bill Hullett's "Street Racer" (about a minute and 10 seconds in - track 10 on "Two-Lane Blacktop") and Keith Urban's "Put You In A Song?" It's not exact, just similar. I Iove both tracks, and both guitarists, just heard it and wondered if anybody else heard a little similarity. No anti-contemporary country music comments pretty-please.

    well......

    I just went and listened to Kieths "Put YOu In A Song". I personaaly don't see the simularity in what you're hearing, But if my song holds up against KU's and reminds you of Speed Racer...I'll take that compliment anyday!!...

    I actually wrote that song the night before the session and I didn't even have a melody yet when I cut it...I'll fess up and say I was humming a Juice Newton tune "Loves Been A Little Bit Hard On Me" when I put it together!!!:lol::oops:

    Wow! Thanks for commenting, Bill!

    It's great to hear the story behind the song. I find myself returning to Two Lane Blacktop again and again. A great album with tone to die for.
