Smile BBC's top driving song

The BBC's top (only) motoring show is currently doing a poll for best driving song.

DP's Highway Star was at number 3 on Sunday's broadcast.
Voting closes this week.

Bat out of Hell is currently top.

Get over to www.bbc.co.uk/topgear and click on driving songs.

Hey Paul,

Thanks for posting this. I've always wanted a CD called:

"Songs you shouldn't listen to, while driving."

I debated between Glenn's "Resurrection Shuffle" and
"She Moves Ghostly" but then I remembered the song
that REALLY makes me drive fast..........so I voted for:

The theme song from the TV show, "Hawaii 5 - 0"
by the Ventures.

CAUTION - ALL LAS VEGAS DRIVERS:

If you hear any of the above songs while driving,

pull over immediately

and allow "The Fuze-mobile" to pass you.



Todd, it sounds like you've already made up a "fast CD."

Years ago, when cars used to have tape decks and not CD- or MP3 or even DVD players in their radios, I had one tape in the car. Only one. Perfect to listen to while driving. Because it was soooooooo cheesy. Really. A recording of Rick Wakeman's "Rhapsodies" Album from 1979 I copied from Vinyl. Moog meets Easy Listening meets Disco. Remember all those incredibly strange Moog Album from the Seventies? Just like one of those. Inspired, absolutely brilliant playing, huge synth sounds, but totally insane and unlistenable today. Produced by Tony Visconti, btw. Unthinkable that the same man produced Thin Lizz'y Black Rose Album the same year!!!???
Just a story I wanted to share.
I would have voted for "Twin Exhausted" by the Ian Gillan Band - was that on the list?
Cheers,
Christian
