I light of the demise of Pontiac today I've heard "Little GTO" about a dozen times, and it got me thinking about "car songs".
So, let me hear your opinion. What's the best song to get your motor runnin'?

For me; Red Barchetta (Rush)

Wow... How do you choose the "best" car song? My vote goes for Hey Lowdown by Big Sandy and His Fly Rite Boys. Great recorded... Amazing live. Great guys too.

"Fuel" by Metallica!!!!!

Great song and cool old video that has a Challenger, Camaro, Chevy II doing some street racing.

Magic Carpet Ride is one of the best.

I also like a couple of Queen songs that very much have a Viper "attitude".... I Want It All.... and Princes of the Universe.

Then, in another direction, you can't beat Feelin' Good performed by Michael Buble.

Click, click, boom by Saliva. If the pedal isn't all the way down by the middle of the song, someone isn't paying attention.


Red Barchetta is a great one as well.

Uhhh, from personal experience on the way to VOI 11, 10 Seconds to Love by Motley Crue got me 89 in a 70.....after hitting the brakes.
