As some of you may know, I recently got my license and I've been driving around everywhere. It's the best smile

I did a search on this and only realy got the 'what songs do you spin to' type threads, I'm after something a little different.

Anyway, I'm trying to make a CD with some good driving songs on it so I can pump it up and cruise around (not really! ubblol)

Can anyone recommend to me some good driving songs? Whether it be upbeat (not techno) stuff or nice cruisy stuff.

I have a couple in mind:

Love Puppet - Sonic Animation
She gets up - TZU
Fast girl - Gyroscope

Thanks hug

*starts singing* the wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round, the wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round, all day long...

Just ignore that :P

Driving songs...um...Well, Staring at the Sun by the Offspring has the lyrics 'maybe life is like a ride on a freeway', so there's an option. Otherwise, I have no clue whatsoever ^_^

I'm looking for people in my area to learn poi with, so if you're in the keilor/taylors lakes/sydenham kinda area of Australia, gimme a buzz on MSN.

low rider by war is pretty cool, if you like olderish stuff.
for ultimate cheesy factor, there's that song that goes 'life is a highway, i'm gonna ride it all night long'. And, for a little bit of ironicism, 500 miles by the proclaimers might have some value.

hey roarfire



congratulations beerchug



ditto i recently got my licence too! (2 weeks as of thursday)



being a kid of the 80's, i find you can't go wrong with a bit of Bon Jovi to rock out to "o-oh, living on a prayer" but i have always wanted to be a bogan, so that may just be me!

i also find crowded house is one of my favourites because i know most of the words and being the hippy i am i like penelope swales and totally gourdgeous



so all in all, that probably wasn't a whole lot of use but i wanted to share in a common new experience bounce2

Layla, by Eric Clapton has always been a favourite of mine, though it does seem to make my right foot heavier! wink

Pha!, children. Everyone knows that you drive listening to the Best of Queen over and over. It must be illegal to do otherwise.
