Its late at night, roads are empty, you're behind the wheel of your favourite car. What song is on the radio?

Radar love by golden earring.
Absolute classic.

Just drive by Alistair Griffin. Gives me goosebumps everytime!
You might recognize it from the end of the 2010 season of Formula 1 :)
SEP555
That is a great one isn't it!

At the moment it's these, its from the 2011 film Drive. It's great film with 3 modern 80s style synth songs

College - A real Hero
Desire - Under your spell
Kavinsky & Lovefoxx - Nightcall

I listen to Tupac and that's what's on most of the time haha. If I'm not in the mood for my usual rap music, I listen to Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, The Who and anything in between! Quite a varied taste but in music it's good to listen to anything and everything.

Jeff starship - we built this city or blue oyster cult - dont fear the reaper (very apt on some roads I know! lol)

This week mostly i have been listening to Plan B.
ukphillad
I personally find fast songs that have a constant beat and also a nice bass that can test the subwoofers capabilities will do the job. Just to name a few, the killers, snow patrol , dj tiesto(his older stuff) and jay z.
falcorob
This is the thing - Fink
Kashmir - Led Zep
Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
One of these days - Pink Floyd
Motorhead - Motorhead
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Club Foot - Kasabian
Hometown Glory - Adele
What it Takes - Aerosmith
La Femme D'Argent - Air
Clint Eastwood - Gorillaz

Just a few. Should get you a few miles. :)

Depending on mood........

Motorhead - Line in the sand
Thrillseekers - Syaesthesia
Eric Clapton - Layla
Chicane - Leaving town
Binary Finary - 1999
Example - changed the way you kiss me

I listen to anything really other than drum and bass tbh.

Too flaming right.
Nothing worse than pulling up at lights and just hearing THUD THUD THUD!
Drives me loopy. :(

Totally agree mate, there's a name for these people at the lights with the music blairing, it rhymes with "shunts" :D

I hate it when your neighbour either sits on the street in their car, with the music like that, or they turn their stereo up as loud as it can go in their house, and you have to listen to their cack!

Shame that there arent rules about music taste and the maximum db level it can reach... most music would be fortunate enough to reach 1db if its lucky!
gregers
hotel california eagles
whole of the moon waterboys
bat out of hell/paradise by the dash board lights meatloaf

tublar bells mike oldfield

Crime of the Centuary supertramp

Avicci - Levels, full blast, need the will to keep awake driving up and down the Dales!
jeebowhite
Oh how I love that Avicii music vid! lol, and its not too bad how Taio has mixed it either!

I certainly wouldn't advise playing Plan B's "recluse" loud when on the M6... It magically makes your right foot inch further and further down, right up to the point you notice the Police X5 in the rear view struggling to match your pace... :(

My first ever 3 points.... :blink:

I quite recently discovered the remix of Tupac's "My block"... Dare i say it, it's even better than "i aint mad at cha" and even better than "dear mama" (and that's saying something!

Tilt, truly sorry to hear that mate. :blink:
May i suggest something more soothing is in order? Maybe Adele or suchlike? ;)

The muppet song! I certainly felt like one when i got my collar felt! :wacko:
Stoney871
Must admit even though i'm supposed to be a paragon of virtue i still get a bit spirited at times.
Probably a good job i carry my issue radio at all times (beauty of being an on-call first response handler) so i know where all the speed traps are hidden. ;)

I mean, AHEM, Er, I do not condone speeding at any time, never any reason to do so. AHEM. <_<
Danny87
Cool stuff another Tupac fan! I really love some of the newer remixed stuff because people are keeping him alive. I would say some of my favourite tracks are "Life Goes On" and "Unconditional Love" because they show a deeper side to what a lot of people would regard as 'mindless rap' lol.

Dan :D

I have an album called Space and beyond, Its a lot of the theme music from some of the great Sci fi films, but it also has lots of sound effects on it. one of them is the USS Enterprise going to warp speed. It takes a good 40 seconds to build up as you hear the power building to blast the ship away, itends with an almighty shriek as she goes to warp, this sequence played through the cars stereo is superb..and downright lethal on the motorway as you cant help but put your foot down as the power builds up ! I,ve never yet gone to warp speed but had a bloody good go a few times ! (I wont repeat the speed i hit in one car i did this in but needless to say it was somewhat faster than i had intended !)

Good mix, I see you snuck a cheeky car reference in there or was that a typo?
I've got Goyte on at present just for a switch.
The track "somebody that I used to know" is cracking.
It has touches of (rather aptly) Police to it.
Even the dogs love it.

They let me know if they're happy alright, it's usually a cold nose in my ear while I'm trying to drive.
My collar gets covered with dog snot and slobber.
Bless them (the little scamps) :P
