Did you know that Home Performance has been a topic of interest for rock and rollers and folk and country singers throughout history?
I bet you didn't. Lo and behold:
1. The Rolling Stones - Ventilator Blues
The topic of ventilation has always been one of the most important components of the Home Performance philosophy and approach -- build tight, ventilate right. Apparently the Stones were well aware of ventilation troubles as they recorded "Exile on Main Street" in their chateau on the French Riviera -- years before the oil crisis of the '70's even began. Forward thinkers, those Stones.
2. Waylon Jennings - If I Were a Carpenter
Ever wonder what life would be like if you had chosen a different career path? Apparently Waylon did too.
3. Willie Nelson - Hello Walls
This old gem was first recorded by Faron Young, but was Willie's breakout hit. I'll bet 5 bucks you'll be singing this every time you bust out your infrared camera.
4. Ralph Stanley - This Old, Old House
Need I say more?
5. Serj Tankian - Empty Walls
For all you rockers. The title couldn't be more perfect for the HP industry.
6. The Black Keys - Everlasting Light
This song must be about LED lighting right?
7. Emmylou Harris - Home Sweet Home
Emmylou rules, and this song is clearly about a comfortable, high performance home after it's undergone a Home Performance upgrade.
8. Marvin Rainwater - Hot and Cold
What life is like living in a leaky house.
9. Grateful Dead - Attics of my Life
Yup. An ode to all you air sealers and insulators.
10. Broken Social Scene - Meet Me in the Basement
How many times have you said this in your career?
11. Neil Young - Country Home
John Poole of Birmingham Point Preservationists pointed this one out in a comment and I've been on a Neil Young bender since. Thanks John!
