    Default Music & racing

    Although I don't listen to music while racing, I will listen to some before I start.
    It's a fact music can affect your attitude/actions. (and for sure the way I drive)
    If I'm driving the Mercedes 300SL or any car with a soft exhaust sound, chances are this was the song I last heard.
    Curtis Mayfield, "Pusherman"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLNW9...eature=related

    Now if it's speed and pushing my driving skills I'm looking for it's this one.
    I like the original by Elton John a lot better but this one has some car racing in it and you'll hear enough of the song to get the idea.
    Makes me wild-eyed.... pedal to the metal..... podium or DNF/DQ.

    You're completely wrong, just look at me driving while the TV is on this channel. Yes, I also have CD's in the car with same type of music...does it show in the way I'm driving??? Perfect!!!

    That Cheech & Chong version is much better than the one I posted. Good find there. That's a keeper.

    The 2nd one has a good strong beat but after listening to it............
    well..... lets just say it wasn't the beat that was going through my head!!
    Yes, it was the "eye-candy".
    ( and I noticed all 3 got podiums.)

    Hey man, I like techno music. Just that I don't hear it very often and if the video has "eye-candy" in it...... well lets just say I'm easily distracted.
    Running Man was awesome. The dude had me smiling right from the start.
    That white boy can kick-it.

    Soul, rock & roll, and blues is my thing.
    You won't see me bad mouth anybodies musical taste.
    Not a lot of people are into the blues, probably to slow for'em. (for them)

    When I say "soul music" I don't mean "rap".
    I'm old school...... I'm talking 60's & 70's groups.
    But I'm always willing to check out new sounds.

    Hey thats a good find there Pelle. I didn't know about that one either. And here I was thinking you were all about "techno".
    The kid is cool and so's dad.


    Ah, Carlos Santana, an excellent guitarist and the Woodstock version is the long one. Where everyone gets a chance to showcase their talent.

    Now for some of what I call "blue-eyed soul".
    In my opinion the most beautiful love song ever written. You don't even have to understand the words. It's in the "feeling" of his voice, you either feel it or you don't.

    I do listen to music when I drive

    these are various tracks like Cardigans - My Favourite Game; Cris Rea - The road to Hell; Odessi feat Maria Naylor - Over Again (Original Club); Markus Schulz feat Anita Kelsey - First Time ...... which approach for not loud listening and allow me an even greater spirit to win
