    ***Car Show Music***

    I am doing a 4 hour car show where they would like me to play "car music". Now I know some car songs, but I could use your help so I can fill 4 hours.

    Thanks in advance!

    I do between 6 - 10 car shows every year and it all depends on what type of show it is. Like whenever I do a show for the older classic car owners I stick with all the classic oldies. I went to the record store and they had a lot of oh like crusin to the oldies cd's and just stuff like that. I'm sure your local record store will have so many to choose from it should cover 4 hours easily. Now for like low rider show's.... well thats just a whole nother story. Well good luck.

    Depending on what kind of car show it is:

    Ride Wit Me-Nelly
    Jeeps, Le Coups, Bimaz & Benz-Lost Boyz
    Mercedes Boy
    Heads Carolina, Tails California-JoDee Messina (unsure)
    Cadillac Ranch-Chris Ledoux
    Start the commotion (or other songs used in car commercials)
    School Days? (riding along in my automobile...)

    Here's a couple of songs that are kind of stretching it:

    Detroit Rock City
    Last Kiss

    Wasn't there a song that said something about the radio playing music in beat with the sound of the wipers or the rhythm of the rain? Possibly The Judds?

    Memory jog! I think it's Eddie Rabbitt, "Driving My Life Away." Early eighties. (The Judds may have done a version, or another similar song, but I don't know -- I don't keep up with country as much as I probably should.)
