what's your favourite in car music?

Here you can post things about ICE (In Car Entertainment). Like how to install GPS navigation, a DVD-player and other yuppie-stuff. This category might be moved to "those other things" in the end...

what's your favourite in car music?

Post by ned zeppelin » Tue Sep 21, 2010 10:28 pm

ok we all have a few lets have them, and why?
being a musician I tend to go for weird stuff-

Porcupine Tree - the sky moves sideways (brilliant musicians, super recording, great for night driving)

Doobies Brothers - Listen to the music (old stuff but great recordings)

Donald Fagin - Nightfly (main man from Steely Dan, cool dude with weird lyrics)
.......so come on what are your albums? :rofl:

some more cool car albums- :D

Spyro Gyra - Down the wire. (cool jazz funk, great recording)

Glass Hammer - Evermore ( strange melodic stuff that's hard to fit in any music category but well worth a listen, very addictive)

You can't beat a bit of oldskool rock and rap :hopping:
I've found its so much easier to have a playlist than use albums now, just plug, play and turn up :D
Atm the music of choice is varied;
Linkin park, Avenged sevenfold, Rob Zombie, Metallica, Run DMC, Public enemy, Billy Idol, Quiet riot, Aerosmith, Queen...
THE LIST GOES ON AND ON AND ON AND OOOON!
oh yeah and journey :lol: (not Glee :evil: )

Led Zeppelin at Knebworth!....I'm impressed! I saw them at Bath in 1970 and at Mothers in Birmingham, but to be honest live they were pretty rough.
talking of live...ones I've seen that were brilliant-
Jon Hisemans Colloseum / AC/DC / Rick Wakeman / Tangerine Dream / Stevie Wonder /Wishbone Ash /10 cc. / Supertramp / Santana / David Bowie / Cliff Richard :sick: ........yes don't laugh he was bloody brilliant and as heavy as Led Zep at times. :hopping:

i love songs of Simple plan and my chemical romance songs to hear

while i'm driving.

sometimes i feel bored in driving specially when it is too far

so i need rock sounds to awaken my blood.

I have just slung (literally) a cd in Ovlov & luckily even though he has spare wiring everywhere it works so today have been howling along to:
Deftones, Interpol, PJ Harvey, Radiohead & Tricky.
