Favorite "Car" Song - Tell us your Favorites - Freeper Canteen - 24 Feb 2012
Our Troops Rock | The Canteen Crew

~Favorite Car Songs~




*"I Can't Drive 55" -Sammy Hagar*

One foot on the brake and one on the gas, hey!
Well, there's too much traffic, I can't pass, no!
So I tried my best illegal move
A big black and white come and crushed my groove again!

CHORUS:
Go on & write me up for 125
Post my face, wanted dead or alive
Take my license n' all that jive
I can't drive 55! Oh No! Uh!

So I signed my name on number 24, hey!
Yeah the judge said, "Boy, just one more
I'm gonna throw your ass in the city joint"
Looked me in the eye, said, "You get my point?"
I said "Yeah!, Oh yea!"

CHORUS II:
Write me up for 125
Post my face, wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!
Oh, yea!

I can't drive 55! (four times)
Uh! (Solo)

When I drive that slow, you know it's hard to steer.
And I can't get my car out of second gear.
What used to take two hours now takes all day.
Huh - It took me 16 hours to get to L.A.!

CHORUS:
Go on & write me up for 125
Post my face, wanted dead or alive
Take my license n' all that jive
I can't drive 55!

No, no, no, I can't drive...(I can't drive 55!)
I can't drive... (I can't drive 55!)
I can't drive 55!



"She Runs Hot" by Little Village

Sittin' on the line
Tryin' to change her mind
Red light, yellow light, green light time.
You're standing on it buddy
But she's chilly as a Tastee Freeze
Ease it over, son
I'll show you how she runs
Screamin' like a demon
When the quarter mile comes
Crankcase cookin', that's her manifold destiny
Now she might run cold for you
She runs hot for me.
She runs hot for me
She runs hot for me
She runs hot for me
Now she might run cold for you
She runs hot for me
She's got a fire in her veins
That's high octane
When her heart starts pumpin'
Her cylinders are jumpin'
Then I give it to her slow
And she gives me back the low ET's
Burnin' down the line
Ten seconds time
Half an hour later
I can still accelerate her 'till we're out of Hardin County
And in another Galaxy---
Now she might run cold for you
She runs hot for me
She runs hot for me
She runs hot for me
She runs hot for me
Now she might run cold for you
She runs hot for me

Has anyone mentioned “Dead Mans Curve” by Jan and Dean. I can remember singing it on the bus in the 60s and we never could remember all the lyrics.

Jan and Dean ~ Dead Man’s Curve

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Anq4wdZc2Ow

I was cruisin’ in my Stingray late one night
When an XKE pulled up on the right
He rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag
And challenged me then and there to a drag

I said “You’re on buddy — my mill’s running fine
Let’s come off the line now at Sunset and Vine
But I’ll go you one better, if you’ve got the nerve
Let’s race all the way — to Dead Man’s Curve”

(Dead Man’s Curve) is no place to play
(Dead Man’s Curve) you’d best keep away
(Dead Man’s Curve) I can hear ‘em say
“Won’t come back from Dead Man’s Curve”

The street was deserted late Friday night
We were buggin’ each other while we sat out the light
We both popped the clutch when the light turned green
You shoulda heard the whine from my screamin’ machine!

I flew past La Brea, Schwab’s and Crescent Heights
And all the Jag could see were my six taillights
He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve
But I pulled her out and there we were - at Dead Man’s Curve

(Dead Man’s Curve) is no place to play
(Dead Man’s Curve... )

“Well, the last thing I remember, Doc
I started to swerve
And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve
I know I’ll never forget that horrible sight
I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right”

Won’t come back from Dead Man’s Curve

(Dead Man’s Curve) is no place to play
(Dead Man’s Curve) you’d best keep away
(Dead Man’s Curve) I can hear ‘em say
“Won’t come back from Dead Man’s Curve”

(Dead Man’s Curve) is no place to play
(Dead Man’s Curve) you’d best keep away
(Dead Man’s Curve) I can hear ‘em say
“Won’t come back from Dead Man’s Curve”

The track for this video is not the original. If you go back to the original, what makes the recording so eerie is what happens at the beginning. The horns lay down an E minor chord, and the organ comes in on top with an E Major chord. That grinding dissonance between G and G# is what creates the sense of foreboding.

I have to weigh in with the Beach Boys ‘ Little Deuce Coupe’, too. When I was in grade school I learned the words from a story in a magazine (LIFE or LOOK, likely). I can still sing all the words but had no idea what they meant. I mean, what IS a ‘flat head mill’ to a young girl?? Still love to sing along!

I LOVE the 57 Chevy. My son bought one cheap...same color but a hardtop and was going to fix it up, but never got finished.

I loved having it sit in the front of the house, but hubby finally had to sell it. It was such a cool year for cars!
