redsquid: Also add Going the Distance by Cake to the list.


Excellent choice
 
2012-04-30 01:58:23 PM

redsquid: Shadow Blasko: redsquid: 1. Radar Love (Golden Earring)
2. The Boys Are Back in Town (Thin Lizzy)
3. Georgia Overdrive (Fred Eaglesmith)
4. Buzzbomb From Pasadena (Dead Kennedys)
5. Dragula (Rob Zombie)

-all on a loop.
I got pulled over for doing a burnout on a green light one time. When the cop came up to the car and asked if there was a reason why I was driving like that I pointed to the radio and said 'Sorry- Radar Love just came on'. He kinda laughed, told me to cut it out, and let me go.

LMAO.

Almost the same thing happened to me once. I got pulled over for taking a "Posted" 35MPH ramp at over 70.

The cop walked up to the car... And Radar Love was still jamming. He just went "Oh... I see.. Try to slow down!" and let me go.

Yeah- that should stand up in court as a defense.

Also add Going the Distance by Cake to the list.


Oh absolutely..

Or Barracuda

Middle of the Road - Pretenders
Crossroads - Cream

CptnSpldng: The Road Goes on Forever (the Party Never Ends) - Robert Earl Keen


I can't hear that without thinking...

"B double E double R U N Beer run....."

My favorite line from "Road Goes on" has to be "She stepped into the alley / with a single shot .410"

twotowner: Personally, I like playing Seger's Live Bullet on a lot of drives. Nutbush City Limits, Turn The Page, and Get Out of Denver seem particularly appropriate


"I love East Bound and Out" by Jerry Reed

"I'm Driving My Live Away" by Eddie Rabbitt.

Check 'em out on You Tube, especially the Jerry Reed song just to see the awesomeness of his pants.

rickycal78: I'm likely to get some hate for some of these but here goes.

Metallica's "Wherever I May Roam"

AC/DC's "Highway to Hell"

Whitesnake's "Here I go again"

Bob Seger's or Metallica's version of "Turn the page"


Great list. You have good taste in driving tunes. I knew there was a reason I have you favorited ;)

Digitalstrange: East Bound and Down - Jerry Reed


I didn't read your post until I posted my picks.

I also, picked "East Bound and Down". Great to hear it especially when I was road trippin' 1,300 miles down south. Also, southern states that I drove through (MS, AL, LA, GA), believe it or not, have great rock radio stations.
 
2012-04-30 02:30:10 PM

mjones73: Offspring - Bad Habit

Always a favorite of mine to drive to.


The break is still one of my favorite strings of profanity of all time (OF ALL TIME!)

/You stupid, dumb-shiat, god-damn, MOTHERFARKER!!

God, I love this performance of Jerry Reed singing it live. Wish it was longer though.

Here's the Eddie Rabbitt live video of "Driving My Life Away", just because it's great and I love the lyrics.

The Budos Band has some great driving tracks (actually just about all of their songs work depending on the situation, but especially if you're driving around in a 70s era blaxploitation movie).

Rite of the Ancients (pops)
Eastbound (pops)

Great stress relief isn't it.

Most of the songs from Initial D are dangerous to listen to while driving...

For driving a convertible with the top down on a sunny day, "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO.
 
2012-04-30 03:19:48 PM
Built to Spill - Goin Against Your Mind
Travis - Sing (maybe not a great driving song, but it was all over the radio when I was in Ireland, so it takes me back)

If I'm driving at night:
Portishead - Wandering Star
Thom Yorke - Black Swan
Handsome Boy Modeling School - The Truth
 
2012-04-30 03:21:43 PM
This is fun. How about some Tom Waits?

For quick maddening getaways:
Midtown (pops)

What I imagine driving in Chicago would be like:
Chicago (pops)

Speeding through the desert towards LA in a big black Olds 88:
Goin' Out West (pops)

Diamonds on my Windshield


Well, these diamonds on my windshield
And these tears from heaven
Well, I'm pulling into town on the Interstate
I got a steel train in the rain
And the wind bites my cheek through the wing
And it's these late nights and this freeway flying
It always makes me sing

There's a Duster trying to change my tune
He's pulling up fast on the right
Rolling restlessly by a twenty-four hour moon
And a Wisconsin hiker with a cue-ball head
He's wishing he was home in a Wisconsin bed
But there's fifteen feet of snow in the east
Colder than a welldigger's ass
And it's colder than a welldigger's ass

Oceanside, it ends the ride with San Clemente coming up
Those Sunday desperadoes slip by and cruise with a dry back

And the orange drive-in, the neon billin'
And the theatre's fillin' to the brim
With slave girls and a hot spurn bucket full of sin
Metropolitan area with interchange and connections
Fly-by-nights from Riverside
And out of state plates running a little late

But the sailors jockey for the fast lane
So 101 don't miss it
There's rolling hills and concrete fields
And the broken line's on your mind
The eights go east and the fives go north
And the merging nexus back and forth
You see your sign, cross the line, signalling with a blink
And the radio's gone off the air
Gives you time to think
And you hear the rumble
As you fumble for a cigarette
And blazing through this midnight jungle
Remember someone that you met
And one more block, the engine talks
Whispers 'home at last'
It whispers 'home at last'
Whispers 'home at last'
Whispers 'home at last'
Whispers 'home at last'

And the diamonds on my windshield
And these tears from heaven
Well I'm pulling into town on the Interstate
I got me a steel train in the rain
And the wind bites my cheek through the wing
Late nights and freeway flying
Always makes me sing
It always makes me sing

Hey, look here, Jack
Okay

Tactical_DBag: I found QotSA's 'Spiders and Vinegaroons' to be a really nice trippy song to listen to while driving across the southwest deserts.

/Actually, most QotSA's songs are great for desert rides.


Anytime I'm driving out to Vegas, the first album that spins on the radio is "Songs for the Deaf". Also, I like their cover of "Goin Out West", just wish they'd have put Lanegan on vocals for that track. Hell, what am I saying, all of their albums live in my car in physical form, not mp3 nonsense.
 
2012-04-30 03:53:06 PM
Nothing to do with cars aside from the casual mention of a V-8 engine, but "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)" by Cracker always seemed to make its way onto my driving mixes.
 
2012-04-30 04:53:11 PM
List fails without Windfall by Son Volt, or really all of Trace.
 
2012-04-30 05:17:00 PM
I've been listening to Animals' Bury My Body this week so it's weird to see it on the list, but there's only one song that actually makes me feel elated to be driving and that's Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield.

THIS

and
/any compilation CD you can get at some big truck stop, if its got a Harley Davidson looking emblem on it or has Molly Hatchett Flirting with Disaster, Skynrd Freebird, and Elo Fire on High or says Road Songs on it. BUY IT!
//also get ya some of that booty booty rapper CD. The lot lizards seemed to like that shiat too
 
2012-04-30 05:45:21 PM
Lots of great choices to improve a crappy list. I would add:

Robert Plant - Big Log

Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter

Nick Cave - I'll Love You til the End of the World

It's Immaterial - Driving Away from Home

KISS - Detroit Rock City (which, to be fair, is basically a rewrite of Radar Love)

and ALL of REM's Fables of the Reconstruction
 
2012-04-30 06:38:34 PM
Hang on St. Christopher from Frank's Wilds Years by Tom Waits
 
2012-04-30 07:38:42 PM
I bought the soundtrack to Heat just so I could mimic Al Pacino as he sped his way through nighttime L.A (new window).

/dork
 
2012-04-30 08:20:16 PM
Interstate Love Song - STP
Where the Streets Have No Name - U2
Got the Life - Korn

The first half of the Gossip album

2012-04-30 10:04:42 PM

2012-04-30 10:09:17 PM
Both have already been turned into driving videos on youtube

The Whitest Boy Alive - Island

Modern Lovers - Roadrunner (the good version)
 
2012-05-01 01:59:22 AM
That depends... is it the dead of night and I'm cruising through the middle of nowhere and I'm about to spark a joint? Or is it noon and I'm stuck in traffic just outside Newark and I have to take a shiat, not like turtle tail touching cloth or anything, but like really need to take a shiat?

Moar liek "taking the train into Chicago." The only thing that keeps "driving in Chicago" from being like Bad Habit is that we have civility.

/ A little, anyway
 
2012-05-01 05:10:47 AM
Chicago

Which reminds me:

"Beat City"
 
2012-05-01 08:02:38 AM

2012-05-02 10:38:49 AM
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird (surprised this wasn't mentioned yet)
Black Sabbath - Children of the Grave (Crazy Train is also a great choice)
