  • Driving Music

    I don't know if this has been done before, but since it's about 4 1/2 months of hell waiting for driving season to start again, maybe we could post some of our favourite songs to drive to. Since we have an eclectic mix of Z drivers both young and older, I think we could come up with a cool selection of tunes. I'll start with a U2 song, "I still haven't found what I'm looking for". It's a great classic song...

    U2? I'm sorry, I can't ever drive with you now. LOL

    Last year I was really into what's being called "Retro New Wave". A long drive at night, and this album is a great experience. Just try not to speed! Tracks to check out specifically "A Promise" and "King of The streets". Stream the album here free: http://lazerhawk.bandcamp.com

    Then there's the classics... These 7 songs are worthy of a playlist of their own to out on repeat!

    Jessica - The Alman Brothers
    Radar Love -Golden Earring
    Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
    Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
    Highway Star - Deep Purple
    Bat Out Of Hell - Meatloaf
    Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

      Half the fun of making the DVD of my trip of a lifetime http://www.ontariozcar.com/forum/sho...light=lifetime
      was choosing the appropriate music.

        Well my taste is likely not for the blue haired audience...

        Everything from Baltic house to heavy grunge/punk rock... but anyone who likes melodic anger to get their juices flowing should enjoy

        There's a lot of variety in this list, a lot of them cross genres, styles, some are more instrumental, and some take some time to get used to, but might grow on you



        In general, these groups make great driving songs/ballads:

        Tool
        Disturbed
        Prodigy
        Lenny Kravitz
        Fat Boy Slim
        Rammstein
        Greenday

        Other specific songs that I find a good boost:

        Catherine Wheel - Sparks are gonna fly
        Beastie Boys - Sabotage
        Hadouken - Mecha love
        Black Sun Empire & Audio - Drizzle
        Riva Starr - Black cat, white cat
        Bassnectar - Open Up

        Now some great remixes:

        N.E.R.D - Rockstar (Jason Nevin's remix from Fast and Furious)
        Mudvayne - Dig (Everything and nothing remix from XXX)
        Flyleaf - I'm so sick (T-virus remix from Resident Evil)
        Rob Zombie - Dragula (Hot Rod Herman remix from The Matrix)
        Fall Out Boy - Thanks For The Memories (Kasum remix)
        Prodigy - Firestarter (Empirion remix from Blade)

          I noticed over the last summer that my driving music went more towards EDM (Electronic Dance Music) like Deadmau5, Skrillex and happy hardcore (another sub-genre of EDM). Some Crystal Method would be played regularly. AC/DC seems to have a driving beat to their songs that works well for just cruising, with a few exceptions. Metallica Albums from the '80s are always good.

          Some notable songs that don't really fall into the previously mentioned. :
          Black Betty - Spiderbait version, it's heavier, dirtier and grungier and more driving than the Ram Jam version. The video also has a great hot rod.
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU1VfYYKMDk
          Danger Zone by KDrew - It gets kinda Dubstep-like, but has other great elements. I found myself starting off a drive with this song often. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbZXYhjh3ms, There's also a video that features a 240Z that introduced me to the song, so that kinda links it as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEyhyt-h6Qo

          And sometimes I just listen to the orchestra of Intake and Exhaust Ft. Turbocharger.

            If you're into hardcore electronic music, I would suggest something like:

            Destroid - Raise your Fist (intro is about 1min 15sec, skip forward if you want)
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jgzw062d8PE



            For something a little less "intense":

            Flux Pavilion - Cracks
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8T-mUUuaWo



            Or for something totally melo:

            Tove Lo - Habits (Hippe Sabotage Remix)
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYM-RJwSGQ8


            ***warning: these songs tend to make you ignore speed limits***

                My daughter approves, G-E. She says add Black Light Burns to your list.

                  Well, what fortuitous circumstance this be...
                  I just got back from California (detailed thread coming shortly EDIT:http://www.ontariozcar.com/forum/sho...0735#post20735) where I did some awesome roads with the Gopro running and a USB stick with a bunch of my albums. some great tunes in there, but unfortunately I was in a rush and didn't get a chance to put the skeleton door on the camera so you have to crank the volume to hear any of the audio (I was surprised it picked up any audio at all). I just let the thing play (in aplhabetical order by song title) so it's all totally random. sometimes the song fit perfectly with the action and other times, not so much.
                  Stay tuned...

                  EDIT: Maybe we can play "name that tune" as I start posting the videos. It might help pass some time...

                    BTW, there's a great book out there called "Traveling Music" by Neil Peart that hits on this very topic.

                      I love some good driving music. To be honest though, i don't want to hear anything but the instrument under the hood when i drive the z. Driving the Lexus is another story. I'll listen to anything. Jazz...techo....rock....hip hop...moby. I am putting together some songs that will make great background music for a z video. I will post them here when i get around to it.

                        Did someone say there was "blue-hairs" on here? I thought they just lawn bowled?
                        Anyway, to the question at hand. You can't go wrong with a little Jethro Tull. I guess that shows grey hair though.

                          You will enjoy the vids I'm about to start posting, although not a Z unfortunately (just a borrowed Mazda 6), your favorite instrument drowns out the music coming out of most of the turns.

                            You, good sir, are in for a treat. You'll just have to turn up the hearing aids (if you are inflicted with such a condition) to hear good ole Mr.Anderson!
