verbalsodomizer: Any album by Me First & The Gimme Gimmes.


Yup.

If I had to pick one song it would be Country Roads.

Otherwise, you can't go wrong with the Gimmes.

'F**k You'. In various covers.

/Can you tell I'm learning...
//No, I actually have a whole summer rock playlist--mostly pop rock mixes, Within Temptation and Disturbed and a few classic songs. It's fun.

To steal a line from the book Good Omens... "All tapes left in a car for more than about a fortnight metamorphose into Best of Queen albums."

a late rainy night with a few friends and a smoke filled car doesn't get any better than when this track *cranked loud of course* hits the 3:20 mark.

SonsoftheSod: Dig, Lazarus, Dig is a great driving album


I listen to Nick Cave and Tom Waits a lot when I'm driving. What am I saying? I listen to Nick Cave and Tom Waits no matter what I'm doing if I'm alone. My husband hates both of them, so that limits me a bit.

The Ides of March - ''Vehicle''

Hey, well I'm the friendly stranger
In the black sedan
Oh won't you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy, I am a lovable man
I'd like to take you to the nearest star
I'm your vehicle baby
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go
I'm your vehicle woman
By now I'm sure you know
That I love ya (love you)
Need ya (need you)
I want to, got to have you child
Great God in heaven, you know I love you
Well if you want to be a movie star
I got the ticket to Hollywood
Well if you want to stay just like you are
You know I think you really should
I'm your vehicle baby
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go
I'm your vehicle woman
By now I'm sure you know
That I love ya (love you)
I need ya (need you)
I want to, got to have you child
Great God in heaven you know I love you
Oh you know I do
Well I'm the friendly stranger
In the black sedan
Oh won't you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy, I am a lovable man
I'd like to take you to the nearest star
I'm your vehicle baby
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go
I'm your vehicle woman
By now I'm sure you know
That I love ya (love you)
I need ya (need you)
I want to, got to have you child
Great God in heaven you know I love you
And I'm your vehicle babe
Oooh
You know I love ya (love you)
I need ya (need you)
I want to, got to have you child
Great God in heaven you know I love you

Well, it is not a "song".
I have this old 33.3. "1061 Corvette, Once around Riverside with Zora Duntov".
Is your seatbelt fastened?

Machete doers not text and Zora does not double clutch.

Dude: You forgot Breaking My Stride by Mathew Wilder and Convoy by CW McCall. I had to listen to the first one driving across Canada in 84 and the other one on the way to Florida in 76 or 77 I believe . I nearly hijacked a Grey Hound bus that insisted on play Island Girl by Elton John over and over
