Question What Are Your Top 5 Favorite Driving Songs?

Not sure if this has been done before but though it could be fun! I'll list my Top 5 favorites and the driving scenarios they typically lead to or fit best:
  1. Fly Me To The Moon - Frank Sinatra {Cruising Tune}
  2. 99 Red Balloons - Goldfinger (Remake of Original) {Average driving song, nostalgia for me}
  3. Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet {Somewhat rapid driving}
  4. I'm Mad of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of? - A Day To Remember {Rather rapid driving}
  5. Mama - Genesis {Cruising, can't help but belt it out to this one}

For anyone that listens to or knows these songs, yes I am aware they are quite different lol. I listen to pretty much everything.

BONUS TRACKS:
  1. Kiss From A Rose - Seal {Who doesn't like Seal???}
  2. Six - All That Remains {Very aggressive driving}

Another good Judas Priest song about driving: Heading Out To The Highway.

Never played 2 or 3. But that was hard to listen to. GT's way of competing with Need for Speed Underground 2?

Judas Priest is great, but I would go for "You've got another thing coming", or "Heading out on the highway". Maybe even "Electric Eye".

Rammstein is excellent also.

Used to love the arcade game (Pole Position) in the "Freewheel Burning" music video. Totally primitive by today's standards, but still fun nonetheless.
