Well...

For songs about driving, then Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55" would have to be in there.

Songs for driving to, I'd have to say:

Hot For Teacher - Van Halen

Stone Cold Crazy - Metallica

I don't have a song, but a must have box set. I normally listen to (weird) jazz, but this is fantastic:

Hot Rods & Custom Classics, Cruisin' Songs and Highway Hits
http://www.rhino.com/store/ProductDetail.lasso?Number=75688

Not only are the four discs great, but the packaging is fantastic. It comes in a box just like a 1/24th scale 60's plastic model. Inside is a 60 page book on hot rodding with the back cover showing that looks like there is a model in the box. Also in the box are Moon Eyes, Moon bottle opener and a pair of fuzzy dice (stolen by my children!)

If you are not familiar with Rhino Records I highly recommend you check out their web site. They have everything from Frank Zappa to the Monkees, the Ramones to hard core blues. And they have samples of all of the songs on Hot Rod....

With a Mustang Cobra I would have thought it would have been Ice, Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice-- crusin in my 5.0 with my ragtop down so my hair can blow........


I just saw Cyndi Lauper a few hours ago at a concert series that is running in town this week, Open seating about 15 feet away from the stage, my ears are still ringing. All the teenbopper girls went nuts when she sang "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Last night Dan Marino came out and danced with Hootie and the Blowfish :clap:

The Distance

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line
Engines pumping and thumping in time
The green light flashes, the flags go up
Churning and burning they yearn for the cup

They deftly manuver and muscle for rank
Fuels burning fast on an empty tank
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns
Their prowess is potent and secretly stern

As they speed through the finish, the flags go down
The fans get up and they get out of town
The arena is empty except for one man
Still driving and striving as fast as he can

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
Not long ago somebody left with the cup
But he's driving and striving an hugging the turns
And thinking of someone for who he still burns

He's going the distance
He's going for speed
She's all alone, all alone, all alone in a time of need

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He's going the distance

No trophies, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no lime
He's haunted by something he cannot define
Bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse
Assail him and bail him with monster truck force

In his mind he's still driving, still making the grade
She's hoping in time that her memories will fade
'Cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
Not long ago somebody left with the cup
But he's striving and driving and hugging the turns
And thinking of someone for who he still burns

Cause he's going the distance
He's going for speed
She's all alone
All alone
All alone
In a time of need

Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He's racing and pacing and plotting the course
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He's going the distance
He's going for speed
He's going the distance
