Just for fun, what are some favorite EDC-related songs?

The inspiration for this was when George Clinton's "Flashlight" played on my way into work today, thought I would post this and see where it goes...because it can't all be contentious debates about steel types, LED lumens, and whether spinners are the best / worst thing ever.
Please try to post official videos, or decent live recordings whenever possible.

Journey of the Sorcerer by the Eagles. Some of you may recognise this as the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme. I figure if you're going to hitchhike the galaxy, you'd have a good EDC kit. Always remember your towel. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MbhAf62wfgE
“Stuff that Works” by Guy Clark. Someone else mentioned “Randall Knife” by Townes Van Zandt...that’s originally a Guy Clark song too.
Marty Robbins - Big Iron
Honorable mention: Johnny Cash - Don't Take your Guns to Town
Blade runner theme song
Antibacterial
This is my new favorite thing, probably should have seen it sooner.
Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'm a lumberjack and i' m ok. I work all night and i work all daaaaay!
Townes Van Zand - Randall Knife
First thing that came to mind was Bryan Adams "Cuts Like A Knife." Check the knife work in the video! He really takes it to that apple!

Wow, I haven't heart that version in years and almost forgot about it. Thanks for posting it.
My favorite version is by Jimmie Dale Gimore for the great movie “A Prophet.” Fun fact: Jimmie Dale Gilmore played Smokey
in the Big Lebowski.

This song about a radio is pretty nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2qerZ8KOrU
There's only so much you can carry in your pockets, so you better have a trick bag for the rest. Love The Meters, these guys are the original funk band - literally invented the (second-line) genre, with help from Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair, and a few others.

I was going to post Alanis Morisette's "Hand in My Pocket," but this is way better: https://youtu.be/GrQCro68sRU
Sound of silence cover by disturbed. Possibly one of the most powerfull covers made. And since i work alone all night well its fitting.

If you look up "leo covers" on youtube (channel is frog leap studios) you will find a lot. The guy is really talented.
Don't forget Oops I Did It Again!

Yeah, dig it! Great song, great live performance here.
Only thing that matters in EDC is:
BrainFlush
Real talk, nice pull DJ BrainFlush.
"Flashlight" by George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic. If you haven't seen them live, you're missing one of the best and longest-touring parties in the history of music.
