Cruising Music

Postby Icecricket » Fri Mar 20, 2009 10:07 pm UTC

I'm a big fan of driving down the road 10 mph over the speed limit on a sunny day with the windows down with some sweet 60's or 70's rock. You all know that feeling. Anyhow, I figured it might be fun to list some of our favorite cruising songs from any genre. I'll start off with:
Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen
Highway Star by Deep Purple

I've not been driving very long, and usually stick to the speed limit (yeah, I'm that guy), but on a road trip a few years back I noticed my foot start to sink listening to "Fortress" (maybe it was "Loro") by Pinback. I thought this was interesting, because it's not a "La Grange"-style adrenalin rocker or anything. It's really mellow, but the beat is steady and it makes the Nevada desert move by a lot quicker.
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

I like to listen to "Trucker's Atlas" while going speed limit +7.

I enjoy listening to Joe Strummer & The Mescaleroes while driving. Their album "Rock Art & The X-Ray Style" specifically. Depending a bit on traffic situation though. This is excellent for a relaxed road trip. If it's rather crowded, I prefer something a bit faster and louder. The Clash live at Shea Stadium is a recent addition to my collection that works out well.

Angular stuff (Think Foals) makes me drive a little faster.
