Nothing makes me drive faster than I WANT to.... o:)


...but "La Bouche: Shoo Be Do Bee Do (I Like That Way)" helps assist me in my speeding...


(popular in Europe, not so much here; you guys have probably never even heard it)

The "Underture" from Tommy by the Who.


If you aren't going at least 10-20 mph faster at the end than at the beginning your deaf!

What makes you drive faster than you should? etc.


The Who...Tommy:  The underture.


 If you're on an open highway this instrumental will add at least 10 Mph to your speed, from the beginning to the end.


I already posted an answer to this. My brain is going!

I saw Little Feat twice at Alpine Valley in WI and three times at various venues in Chicago in the mid to late 70's and early 80's. The only folks who managed to sit through any of those concerts were confined to wheelchairs. I rank those shows with Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon concerts (in Phoenix and Chicago in 1973) and Led Zeppelin's stadium busters in 1969, 1970, 1972 and 1974.

Although there are a ton of tunes I get pumped on, I think that

Santana's Soul Sacrifice is my all time favorite.


Not only should it be good for an extra 30 mph while driving - nomatter what the speed limit is, but I think if you get stopped and tell the cop why you were speeding, he'll let you go. party.gif

I've been a huge Santana fan since I saw the band during the Abraxas tour in 1970 (I think).

40 years later Carlos is still going strong.
What's better than Carlos? How 'bout Carlos and Eric Clapton!

For me its the Scorpions, whatever your mood they have a song to fit, from power ballads (No One Like You) to in your face rock (Rock You Like A Hurricane) to slow spacey stuff (China White, When The Smoke Is Going Down)it all works for me.......

Carlos puts on a FANTASTIC show. I sprung for front row seats - center stage - when his Supernatural tour came around a few years ago. They were worth every penny. That's something I'll never forget - (regardless of any enhancing substances or legal beverage.) I can hardly imagine seeing him along side Clapton! What an opportunity that would be.

Carlos teams up sometimes with Ottmar Liebert.  One song, Samba Pa Ti, that Santana did way back in the early 1970s, Ottmar did the acoustic guitar work and Carlos the electric.  They reprised that work on Ottmar's 1992 album Solo Pa Ti where the acoustic was the lead and Carlos played the bridge on electric.
