    Hi all,

    Thought I'd start up a thread about car-related music. It could be what you like to drive to, it could sum up your attitude to your car, for an older car could be period appropriate......

    I have done up two 'period appropriate' playlists, one for the VB, the other for VX. VB one features acts like ABBA, Blondie, Boney M, Eric Clapton, Gary Numan, The Police, Little River Band etc, in all has 100 'good' tracks from the period 1978-80 (when VBs were built...) VX One features things like Alex Loyd, Coldplay, Daft Punk, Darude, Eminem, Madison Avenue, Moby, Pink, Shaggy, Travis, Robbie Williams, again 100 'quality' tracks from the VX period of 2000-2002.

    Here is a snippet from the VB playlist...

    and.....from the VX one......

    tracks are not auto-related, but are very 'period' lol....

    what are some things others auto-related playlist?

    I always listen to old stuff anyway, but the one thing I have to play in the old girl is highway to hell, I think it just suits the car so well, and the rest if the ac/dc tracks...
    And then once ac/dc is done I lust listen to 70's rock songs. Not much else, the commodore on the other hand, anything.

    Always smile when the Mountain Goats - This Year comes on when I'm driving the old girl as these lines sum things up nicely ha ha !!

    six cylinders underneath the hood
    crashing and kicking

    Thanks to Static-X, I have a need for a special Camaro

    Lyric's sample:
    Iron clad, big block, old carburetor
    Try to keep it on a straight line
    Burning those slicks, brawler crawler
    Keep it on the red line, take another shot
    I got nothing to lose

    Beat down, fire it up
    Burned out, Z28

    Or even better, the complete lyrics from Static-X song WFO:

    Heavy solid metal
    Shift it into go mode
    Hit the skinny pedal
    Make a violation

    Gasoline (Check)
    Ignition (Check)
    Compression (Check)
    Cranking (Check)
    Sensation (Check)
    Relation (Check)
    Connection (Check)
    Burn the tires up

    God damn it
    I don't believe
    At all
    Just slam it
    (And drive like I stole it)
    Wide f*^king
    Open the throttle
    Just hold on
    And I don't care

    Open four barrels
    Push it to the red line
    Dying for a reason
    Harnessing the screeching

    Gasoline (Check)
    Ignition (Check)
    Compression (Check)
    Cranking (Check)
    Sensation (Check)
    Relation (Check)
    Connection (Check)
    Blow the f*^ker up

    God damn it
    I don't believe
    At all
    Just slam it
    (Now the f*^king pigs are after me)
    Wide f*^king
    Open the throttle
    Just hold on
    And I don't care
