    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! :D

    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.)

    Chuck,

    Couldn’t locate that list, but here’s some of the ones that I enjoy hearing whenever I do a car event…

    Hot Rod Lincoln – Charlie Ryan (1955), Johnny Bond (1960), or Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen (1972)

    Route 66 – Rolling Stones (1964)

    Move Out Little Mustang – The Fabulous Baggies (1965)

    Jaguar And Thunderbird – Chuck Berry (1954)

    Rocket 88 – Jackie Brenston (1954)

    Drive Faster – The Vicksburgs (1964 - from “That Thing You Do”)

    Rapid Roy The Stock-Car Boy – Jim Croce (1973)

    Rev It Up And Go – Stray Cats (1981)

    Hot Rod Man – Tex Rubinowitz (1981 – sounds exactly like it should’ve been done around 1955!)

    One Piece At A Time – Johnny Cash (1975)

    The Ballad Of Thunder Road – Robert Mitchum (1954 – yes, THAT Robert Mitchum…he wrote and performed the title song, starred in the movie too!)

    Tom Slick – TeeVee Tunes (1967)

    Speed Racer – TeeVee Tunes (1969)

    Keep on Rockin’,

    There will probably be some PT Cruisers there, and you should get at least one of the PT Cruiser songs that's out. One is "It Was A PT Cruiser" by Lou Hobbs, one is "PT Cruiser" by Al Jardine, and the last one is "Gotta Have A Cruiser Blues" by Bob Mccall.

    I'm Stunned!

    Ken, I have a car song that's not on your list!

    Ray Stevens - "Little Blue Haired Lady (In A Big Black Oldsmobile)"

    (And if you like Bike songs - his "Speedball", and "Shriner's Convention".) :lol:

    Thanks for the list! I've got a car show end of the month myself!

    And some more - -

    "Route 66" - Asleep At The Wheel (not a bad version)
    "Taxi" - (TV show theme)
    "Workin' At The Car Wash Blues" - Jim Croce
    "Seven Bridges Road" & "Life In The Fast Lane" - Eagles
    "Cowboy Cadillac" - Garth Brooks
    "Ventura Highway" - America
    "L.A. Freeway" - Jerry Jeff Walker
    "Like A Rock" - Bob Seger (another Chevy commercial!)
    "Pink Cadillac" - Natalie Cole (same song as the Springsteen one mentioned earlier?)



    BTW, Ken, isn't "King Of The Road" a train song?

    And, is "Stingray" (kiddie show) REALLY about a Corvette? If not, as I seem to remember (but I could be wrong), what about "Thunderbirds" or "Road Runner"? Just wondering ... :D
