Just drive by Alistair Griffin. Gives me goosebumps everytime!

You might recognize it from the end of the 2010 season of Formula 1 :)

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.

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.

Too flaming right.

Nothing worse than pulling up at lights and just hearing THUD THUD THUD!

Drives me loopy. :(

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!

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!

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. <_<

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
