Suggestions for a Driving Music Playlist (Vanity)
13 May 2013 | Me

Posted on 05/13/2013 6:20:43 AM PDT by paterfamilias

So, my son and I will have a 5-day bonding experience and we will drive the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego to Carmel and back in a pristine (red, of course) 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6/2.5.

I welcome your suggestions for some good driving music for the trip.

Thanks!

Think back to your younger days. Anything you enjoyed singing out-loud.

For me, I play Alan Parsons, Steelye Dan, Toy Matinee and Van Halen. Just make sure you turn it up real loud so no one can tell you are singing off key!

Alfa Romeo, huh? Clearly, Tosca, or anything else by Puccini.

I don't know anything about a DRIVING play list. What I do know is a riding play list. As a member of the IBA, I have done several cross country motorcycle rides. My play list is heavy on Sons of the Pioneers for timeless western music. After that Waylon, (early) Willy and the boys.
That is all that is ever needed to get me from here to there.

Dean Martin "Anthology" (if you can find it). For a change, "Clinch Mountain Country" - Ralph Stanley and Friends.

Crank up the Stanley when you go through cities. Bluegrass from a classic Alfa would be a hoot.

What a great choice! Cliffs of Dover, and the Doobies' Listen to the Music, are the two most infectiously happy songs ever recorded.

Booker T & the MGs--I agree, great stuff.

Also, on guitar: Dick Dale, surf sound. Duane Eddy, twang. Stevie Ray Vaughan, blues.

And then there's Stray Cats/Brian Setzer with rockabilly, swing/big band. And the Blasters, also with rockabilly.

I agree, Dire Straits...calling Elvis and Heavy Fuel and Walk of Life, and pretty much anything of Garth Brooks. Some Puccini for a nice break. Happy motoring. The best part is being with your son. Not to you Migraine...I'm just agreeing with your choice of Dire Straits. :-)
