ahem.

-Red Barchetta by Rush (no, I'm not usually a rush fan) --an actual sci-fi hot rodding song!

-Switchblade 327 by Brian Setzer

uh... 409 by the beach boys?

yeah, I have to agree with Chevelle Girl. SO many great songs that go with driving but don't mention cars right out:

-Lucifer Sam by Pink Floyd

-Frenzy by Screamin' Ray Hawkins

-any fast bluegrass song

-any pre-1980 AC/DC song

-Atom Bomb by Fluke

-Danielle Dax's remake of the Beatles' 'Tomorrow Never Knows'

-So many techno songs I can't name them all

-Sweet Hitchhiker by CCR

-Eight Miles High by the Byrds

-Black Capricorn Day by Jamiroquai


um, I'll stop before I bore even more of you than I have already. I could go on for hours.

anyone else?

How about "Low Rider"? Am I the only one that likes this song? If you don't like the original, Korn re-did it....

Cool

Rocket 88, either the blues or country edition
Mercury Blues, Country rock or Steve Miller
Bucket-T, the Who
Thunder Road, Robt Mitchum
Take the Money and Run, Steve Miller
Cadillac, Stray Cats
Nantuckett Sleighride, Webb Wilder

Lately, I've been on a blues kick. Hound Dog Taylor, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Sonny Landreth, Eric Sardinas, Lazy Lester, soundtrack to "Desperado"
Like the others, I could go on fer evva

oh man,
you guys have listed some really awesome tunes!

I had forgotten about UFO! 'Shoot Shoot' and 'Mother Mary' are some of the best driving songs ever created.

I definately second Green Onions too.

Outlaws' 'Hurry Sundown' -- yeah!

Halloween King, I agree about Beethoven.

Madd Syntst, thanks for mentioning the Who.

Here's a few more from my stack:

-'A Shot in the Dark' by Oranj Symphonette (Tom Waits band, who do awesome jazz)

-the music for 'Cowboy Bebop' by Yoko Kano

And let's not forget 'Built For Speed' by the Stray Cats. Any song that is about a fast car *and* a hot girl at the same time rules automatically, in my opinion. your milage may vary : )
