stock car race

Back in the early '60s there was a popular song called: Tell Laura I Love Her about a young feller who is killed in a stock car race trying to get the money to buy his girl a ring... then way back before my time there was one about a Tin Lizzie.

Umm, strictly relating to cars, I'd have to say Megadeth's, Mechanix. That's all I can think of, don't really like the cheese fest involved with singing about cars. I hardly ever listen to a song seperately from an album, doesn't feel right. Have to play the whole album. Otherwise, doesn't really matter to me what I play in the car, just gotta be good.

"Take Me For A Ride" or "Car Car" is a Woodie Guthrie Song.

"Come with me Lucille, in My Merry Oldsmobile" is from like 1910. Lots of songs then, i like "Get out and Get Under" (of Henry's Automobile"

Terror of Highway 101, is actually "Black Leather Jacket"
I for get by who. Reminds me of "Transfusion" by Nervous Norvous or something similar..

Lots of blues about cars, "Crazy Bout An Automobile" And there is blues about every car made. "Chevrolet Blues" and so on.

"Hot Rod Lincoln" dates from the 50's and there are enough take off to wright an epic poem about; "Hot Rod Lincoln meets the Sidecar Harley" "The Hot Rod Lincoln Goes to Hell" and so on. The Sidecar Harley is a girl, get it?

The fist one was The Hot Rod Race" where the Hot Rod Lincoln blows off both racers. That was Charlie Ryan, who supposedly actually cut the body off a Lincoln Zephyr... here is a link

http://www.lincoln-club.org/hot-rod-lincoln.html

"Rocket 88" was supposedly the very first hot rod song. And you could include "My and My Chauffeur " By Memphis Minnie

And "Terraplane Blues" by Robert Johnston in 1937 was a big hit..

I don't know much about cars, but i got the blues down..

I'll post more if you want to know..

I agree, but it is a cover of an older song. Probaly from the 50's Lindley and Ry Cooder have been mining that era for a long time.. And the one about "Ain't got nothin' but a pair of rubber heels" "All those women, crazy bout an automobile"

Hey wishnevsky, I'm a blues lover too. It kills me all these young guys listing blues songs covered by "country" stars and listing them as by that person.

I haven't heard the one about "Ain't got nothin' but a pair of rubber heels" "All those women, crazy bout an automobile" in a long time. Who did that one?

How about Lightnin' Hopkins, "Black Cadillac"?

I remember another but I can't think of the name or who did it. It went
"I used to have a car, and it was painted white and black,
(repeat)
I couldn't keep up the payments, and the man, he took it back."

By all means, list some more.

I don't know for sure, but it is on the "J Band" record, (perhaps that's "Jay Band") with John Sebastian, Geoff Muldaur, the late Fritz Richmond and The late Yank Rachell

here is the site. http://www.johnbsebastian.com

I will list more, but check this out..

http://www.hot-rod-lincoln.com/

Charlie Ryan is still alive, but not healthy, and has a site with pix of the HRL and is selling CD's and stuff..

Let's see, other blues songs. The Chuck Berry one about the Seat belt, is "Unfasten Her Safety Belt" perhaps.. "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" mentions a Droptop Cadillac," and Jim Croce also had "Rapid Roy, that stock car boy" Was that listed?

"He always has an extra pack of cigarettes rolled up in his tee shirt sleeve"

Should give honorable mention to Richard Thompson's "Vincent Black Lightning" and "Damn that Traffic Jam" James Taylor.

For an old song, "Lee Highway Blues" by Grayson and Whitter, fiddle tune. Covered by Highwoods String Band, complete with craking a model A sound effects..

And i forget the name, but that 50's song about "Keep you eyes on the road ahead, we're having fun, sitting in the back seat, kissing and hugging with Fred"

And i think the last charted song ever to feature clawhammer banjo, was Grandpa Jones' "The Ballad of Fireball Roberts"

That will do, it's almost one in the morning..

Just so people know you're not crazy, I remember this one too. I had completely forgotten about it until your post. I can't add any more than what you had, though.

I seem to remember that Fred was a bassett hound..

Here is a link to Car Talk, they have very obscure car songs in between the segments, and being NPR, there is a total searchable listing of every one

http://www.cartalk.com/ct/searchMusic.jsp

here is the complete list from 1997

http://www.cartalk.com/content/music...all_songs.html


That ought to keep you out of trouble for a while..There should be enough to fill up an iPod

From the CAr Guy list, "Get out and get under" was by Freddie "Schnicklefritz" Fisher And His Orchestra.

I note a song; "Twenty Naked Pentecostals in A Pontiac"...

And there was a rockabilly song Red Cadillac and a Black Mustache.. i found this link to twenty caddy songs..

And if you still have't had enough, go here

to Dr. Demento, who favors songs like Weird Al Yankovic's "Stop Dragging My CAr Around"

For the record (no pun intended

"Pink Cadillac" was NOT covered by Aretha Franklin - it was written by Bruce Springsteen and covered by Natalie Cole. Here's a quote from Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Cadillac_%28song%29

"'Pink Cadillac' did not appear on any album until 1998 when it was included on 'Tracks,' a collection of Springsteen outtakes." "The song was first released in 1984 as the B-Side of "Dancing In The Dark." Natalie Cole's cover was a #5 hit in 1988."


"Mercury Blues" was written by K.C. Douglas in 1949, and covered by The Steve Miller Band on the album "Fly Like an Eagle" in May of 1976. Here's a quote from Answers dot com - http://www.answers.com/topic/k-c-douglas

"One of the last great rural blues stylists in the San Francisco/Oakland area, K.C. Douglas produced a blues classic when he recorded "Mercury Boogie" in 1949. The tune, which paid homage to the American automobile, was later renamed "Mercury Blues" and covered by Steve Miller and David Lindley. Country superstar Alan Jackson had a number one hit when he recorded the tune in 1992. Rights to the song were purchased by the Ford Motor Company, which used it for a television commercial for Ford trucks."

And I agree about iTunes - got some great ideas from this thread, and will be burning some driving CDs this evening.
