Time for a little fun and enjoyment. Yep, Spring is just around the corner and many will be pulling their rides out of hibernation and hitting the roads.
For me, certain songs and their "beat/tone" go hand-in-hand with driving. They compliment one's state of mind and the environment or surrounding situation (the scene you are part of -like a movie). There are songs that fit perfectly those times when you're just cruisin' real "bad ass" like looking for that one car to run and put him into the weeds. There are those song's you just gotta have blaring with the convertible top down, wind in your face, and clocking 80MPH on the highway just burning up every new car in sight (radar detector a must!). There are those songs where you are cruisin' for chicks or just being cool driving down the "avenue." And then there are my favorites, those tunes that pump you up and make you feel like you and the car are invincible and you're in a car chase movie with "blue light specials" in your rearview and 'ain't nothing going to catch you, aka "Gone in 60 Seconds," "Dirty Mary & Crazy Larry," or "The Blue's Brothers."
So what are your favorite cruisin' tunes, and maybe if you can, give us the scene where the tune is best used -cruisin' in general, cruisin' for chick's, trolling for that match race, top down, highway speeds, or getting into trouble!
BTW: Throwing in a little imagination into the "scene" you think your tune fits is perfectly acceptable - gives us a picture of your movie, real or imagined.
PS - I would imagine that many of the tunes that will be listed will probably be found on Youtube and can be heard so we all might enjoy another's recommendation if it is something we are not familiar with, be it "old" or "contemporary."
