    Drive Faster to certain music

    Simple question for licensed drivers in this community.

     

    If either Radar Love (Golden Earring), Highway Star (Deep Purple) or Detroit Rock City (KISS) is coming out of your car speakers, are you more likely to drive just a tad faster? If not, is there a song that will put your pedal to the metal?

    Funny you should post this today.

    Last evening as I was driving toward home , WZLX Boston chose to play a song I don't hear on radio as often as I should....the above mentioned Highway Star. The opening to the song began as I was travelling east on RT. 6 and I was already beginning to press harder on the accelerator ....fortunately none of the local police were around to witness as my 4cyl. Izusu van reached 65 mph in a 55 mph zone....also I was pretty close to home , anyway ( the total trip takes 15-20 mins depending upon traffic and potholes). I was in the driveway as the Jon Lord organ kicked in and it was tempting to stay in the car for a few more minutes. But, I knew dinner was probably ready and someone gets mad when she has to reheat my meal in the microwave.

    So ends the tale of how a scofflaw avoided capture by a small town police force ( it was probably dinner time for them , also!!...)

    Kix - Don't Close Your Eyes. That is interesting Klaas. Great song for sure, but mellows me a bit. But to each their own.

    Don't Close Your Eyes probably doesn't belong here, but I like the song so much I couldn't resist.

    Slow Ride certainly does not lead to a slow ride in my car.

    I don't drive far above the speed limit, but for songs that give a real adrenalin jolt, I would choose:

    (As mentioned) Highway Star

    Day of the Eagle - Robin Trower

    Around 1986 my mum hosted a young Scottish woman for about 6 months for a reason I can't remember.  I was completely in love with her, Morag (Scottish/Gaelic for Sarah)...IMO she was/is totally gorgeous, smart, funny, cool....a bundle of charisma.  We were very close friends (and are still in touch a bit) but she was not just waaayy out of my league I was so paralytically shy then nothing could developed anyway.


    She was from Glasgow, well into music and happened to be friends with the then drummer in the Jesus and Mary Chain, Bobby Gillespie and was a giant fan of them.


    It's extremely uncool, ignorant and selfish, but at the time most of my friends and myself would regularly drink and drive...and not just tipsy, sometimes really wasted.  Luckily none of us ever hurt anyone else on the road. It's one of my biggest regrets/shames, and I very aggressively made sure my older daughter wouldn't ever even ride with a drunk as I will with my little one and everyone else I know.  However, as one of us was particularly (relatively) good at driving drunk he was appointed as our Designated Drunk Driver.  Seriously, it was totally uncool, idiotic and, worse, unnecessary as we had sufficient resources to share a cab home if need be.


    My belaboured point?  One night after seeing Lyres at TTs, then closing the club across the road (forget the name), my DDD drove himself, Morag me home...very drunk.  On the VFW Parkway, "Taste of Cindy" was played on FNX....Morag went nuts....shouting, laughing....you know, "good crazy". Then she went "bad crazy", dove into the front seat and grabbed the steering wheel shouting "I want to die" and tried to drive the car off the road into a wall.  Luckily our DDD was just able to prevent it happening.


    What bunch of selfish, ignorant, anti-social little b@stards we were.  We are all much, much better now!  ;-)
