    Deja Boo


    The Marshall Tucker Band - Can't You See






    This is a nice mellow track that I did not expect to do as well as this. But when I tested out all the tracks whilst driving (well it is a driving miss Walrus round tbf), it held up much better than I expected. The guitar work in particular had me nodding along.

    Metallica – Fuel






    There’s parts of this track and I can really dig and then there’s parts that just don’t fit the category at all. It was very hard to rank this one because the speed guitar parts are perfect for head banging whilst at the wheel but then it gets slowed down and doesn’t fit the car in motion. Maybe I just need to go faster… or is that what they want me to do :eek::eek:

    Trigger


    More than a feeling – Boston






    Chorus is just cracking. Absolute car singalong. I do love the guitar riff as well but I got told off by the family before for playing my air guitar whilst driving :(

    The Killers – Human






    Chorus has car singalong qualities. Verses… not so much. I absolutely love this track though, a very under rated Killers song imo.

    The War on Drugs - Red Eyes





    Beat behind this song is very compatible with driving. I just really enjoyed listening to this track in the car and it’s now on my driving playlist forever more. Great entry.

    Badlands - Bruce Springsteen






    Again another track with excellent compatibility for driving. Especially around these parts when we cross the Leitrim or Roscommon borders. Blare this from the windows and it keeps the natives relatively quiet I find. Or at least the Hill people...

    Asia - Heat Of The Moment








    Hard to fault this in anyway, cracking lead into a belter of the chorus. Perfect driving song material.

    Great choice Liz! I almost chose this and another Bruce song.

    Paradise By The Dashboard Lights – Meatloaf






    Unlike another entrant here (cough Trigger cough) I actually quite like Meatloaf. This is a great track, a little bit long but that’s typical for Meatloaf tbf. Objects In The RearView Mirror may very well have topped this category mind….

    Pink - Just Give Me A Reason






    Should I be concerned that my own wife considers this as a driving song? Nah…

    giphy.gif

    It’s just too slow for me tbh, the duet chorus is compatible for singalong but other than that I’d be worried about falling asleep at the wheel listening to it tbh! I do love the track mind, as evidenced from it's previous appearance...

    Chuck Berry - No Particular Place To Go







    Straightforward, simple and to the point. Sometimes it just works and this is definitely one of those times. Love Chuck Berry, love this track. Great choice.

    Garbage - Cherry Lips







    Now it might seem I’m picking on Garbage based on their entries in the game but really, it’s not intentional, I quite like them. Just don’t see this as a driving song, per se. There are parts of the chorus that almost get there but just overall it didn't fit unfortunately.

    As expected.
    I'm not driving, so I wouldn't know what a good driving song is.

    The Cardigans – My Favourite Game







    There was very little between this and the eventual winner if I’m honest, if anything The Cardigans probably lost out due to over-familiarity. Banger of a track this one, really enjoyed it.

    So it's Barna and LeVar who remain...

    Interstate Kyle - Lake Shore Drive







    I did say I liked *most* of the entries into this category…. :pac: I jest, I jest. I didn’t mind this… initially this was actually doing quite well but…. on relistens it began to plummet unfortunately. Typical American jingly jangly ‘join the interstate’ fare. Just wasn’t gone on it as a driving song at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,538 ✭✭✭✭Trigger


    In fairness to Meatloaf, you only need to listen to one song for the trip from Sligo to Dublin..

    ****in things are that long

    LeVar



    Florida Georgia Line ft. Nelly - Cruise (Remix)








    Perfect fit for this category, with added bonus of country :D This would have fitted in the summer category as well, I wonder how your actual entry will fare because this is very likely top 3 there… before I did preference listens of course. Deserving winner and a perfect track for cruising to in good weather, like today!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,538 ✭✭✭✭Trigger


    Niceee LeVar, that's a great choice.. definitely a driving track
