Blatantly stealing from a topic brought up on another website, I want to know what the best songs to listen to while driving are. Whether it be music to make you speed by, or music to fill up the time driving on long trips.
Here's my quick list:
Bad Habit by Offspring- When I have had a bad day and feel the need to speed, this song gets me going.
Sweet Home Alabama- Don't know why this song is great to drive to, but I always dig having the windows down and this song blazing.
Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit- Another song that is just pure madness and is sure to piss off the drivers that are stuck in traffic next to you.
Don't Know Why by Norah Jones- A recent song that is great to listen to when you are not in a hurry and just chilling out in the car.
Well, did I miss any songs?
The call is from heroism, will you accept the charges?
Someone on here already has a quote from it as thier sig, but there is a song called 'The Church of Logic, Sin, and Love' by The Men that is PERFECT for driving from Tampa to Orlando twice a week. Whenever I have to make that drive, it's about 45minutes one way, I listen to that whole CD. Excellent Traveling music.
Two other CDs I always take with me on road trips are Traci Lords '1000 Fires' and Pulp 'Different Class'.
I merely suggested, that you had the driving ability of a brain dead labratory ape.
I prefer to think of great entire albums to drive by. For me, I've got: Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell, Busta Rhymes' Extinction Level Event, Rush's Permanent Waves, Guns 'n' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, Mystikal's first album, the name of which I'm forgetting right now, Type O Negative's Bloody Kisses, Skid Row's 40 Seasons (I know, I know, it's a best of, but it's the only Skid Row album that has the least amount of filler crap, in my opinion) and one that doubles as my favorite album to listen to when on a train for some reason, Dream Theater's Images and Words.
Here's my token "I can't believe it's not mentioned yet" (and I have two...)
Gary Numan - Cars Sniff n the Tears - Driver's Seat.
My CD compilation is designed for night driving and includes...
Nelson Riddle Orchestra - Theme from Route 66 Cardigans - Erase Rewind Tones on Tail - Twist Suzanne Little - Tragic Flaw Hot Butters - Popcorn Dave Baby Cortez - The Happy Organ Cowboy Junkies - Miles From Our Home Chris Isaak - Wicked Game Dimitri from Paris - Une Very Stylish Fille Sneaker Pimps - Six Underground Plumb - Pennyless

The Church's 1988 'Starfish' album is good for long distance middle of nowhere kind of drives. A touch ethereal for most modern tastes, but I stand by it.
And as excellent an album as Tom Waits's "Bone Machine" is (truly a classic, on my all time top 5), driving on a winter's night through Connecticut with Bone Machine blaring would make even Up With People want to take their own lives. Takes a great album to do that, though.
Seriously, what the hell is there to do in Connecticut? There's an other worldly pizza place in Fairfield and Titan Towers 20 miles down the road, but the rest of the state is just the Boston-New York equivalent of flyover country.

I gave a babyface pop seeing Mr. Heel's mention of Sneaker Pimps. I miss them
Sneaker Pimps - Spin Spin Sugar K's Choice - Not an addict Goriliaz - Clint Eastwood B52 - Love Shack Clash - Rock the Casbah Cardigans - Favourite Game Chemical Brothers - Setting sun Placebo - Every you, every me Sarah McLauchlan - Silence Sonic Youth - Kool Thing
I mostly like driving to something with a quick beat to it mostly techo, chicks or guys from England and most of the time sound like chicks.
So my sentimentality last week wasn't entirely misguided, as I have decided to take a short break from doing the show. Winter is a little packed, and there are a few other projects on which I'd like to focus.
