Desperately seeking suggestions.....


.... for top 100 music tracks to listen to whilst driving.
I've recently acquired a new car. I'll spare all the details, except that it has only two seats, a roof that folds away, and it isn't red. The significant bit for this thread, is that it has an audio unit that plays mp3 CDs.
So I have started putting together a playlist of driving/car related tracks to listen to.
So far I have:-
Rolling Stones - Brand new car
Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter (used in an RAC advert)
Chris Rea - Road to Hell
Chris Rea - Auberge
The Commitments - Mustang Sally (my favourite version)
Fleetwood Mac - The Chain
AC/DC - Highway to Hell
My other car isn't a Ferrari

Have they got to be "heavy" rock n roll?    Undecided
or do you want some "nerve" soothers for when you are stuck in traffic? Roll eyes

@Strat - no, don't have Spotify, I didn't think this allowed you to download tracks to keep (must check this out, thanks for the link).
@shutter - doesn't have to be 'heavy' , only one of my initial list I would class as such. But needs to be loud enough to drown out the boy racers in their Corsas and Saxos playing 'thump-thump' music as they pull up alongside me at the traffic lights and expect me to drag race them when the lights change. Two non-driving tracks on my reserve list are Robbie Willams' Let Me Entertain You and Eurythmics Would I Lie to You.
Please no Beach Boys selections!

No it doesn't unless you click to purchase.
Just thought there might be some suggestions on the growing list that Asbo has started on there.

Aw! doesn't want his T-bird taken away...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Desperately seeking suggestions.....

Talking Head and Canned Heat are good choices  Wink
I would also add:
Paranoid Android - Radiohead
Muscle Museum - Muse
Space Truckin' - Deep Purple
Cat Food - King Crimson
God Hates a Coward - Tomahawk
War - System of a Down
I could go on and on, I had to stop myself from adding to much to ASBO DOGs Spotify list  Grin
