Question What do you listen to when you drive?

This should be fairly interesting. What sort of music do you all enjoy listening to when you're cruising down the road?

I'm a child of the 80's so naturally I love a lot of the 1980's/1990's rock from bands like Guns n' Roses, AC/DC, Van Halen, Run D.M.C., Duran Duran, etc etc.

My all time favorite music when driving my 'Vette with the top down is Jimmy Buffett though. I'm a HUGE Parrothead, I just love everything about Buffett's music and style. It's my outlook on life and I think I only every record he's ever put out (now on my iPod).

What about the rest of you?

Mostly Slim Whitman or Myron Floren. Once in awhile I'll pop in Jim Nabors if I really want to get all jacked up.

I just plug in the mp3 and listen to mostly classic country, 50's and 60's rock.

iPod controlled from the receiver (Alpine): Joe Satriani most of the time. Some other times I listen to new flamenco Spanish-style guitar (fast-paced), some of Govi's songs, Jesse Cook, and so forth. Today I was listening to Adele sing a few of her songs, and found them quite nice.

I can't drive 55 - YouTube
60's/70's Rock and 80's Heavy Metal and 80's-90's Rap and Hip Hop depending on my mood and such...New music is terrible and all the pre-00's older stuff sounds way better cruising with the stereo up..

What do I listen to while driving? Usually the Wife telling me I am driving too fast and too aggressively .

As for music playing, I listen to anything and everything. From AC-DC to Mozart. Right now I am leaning toward the "Christina Perri" and "April Smith and the Great Picture Show" type of artists. The 6 discs that call the CD changer home 90% of the time lately are: 1) AC-DC - Back in Black; 2) KISS - Hotter Than Hell; 3) London Symphony Orchestra - Season for Love; 4) Jim Reeves - He'll Have to Go; 5) Da Yoopers - Yoop It Up; 6) a Compilation disc with a wide mix I made myself.

More & more, I'm finding myself listening to nothing. In fact, in the old Volvo I've been rebuilding I don't even have a radio installed.

I really like the peace and quiet.

The sound of my engine and the road. It's been years since I checked to see if my car radio worked.

Long time ago, I used to keep a tape of Albinoni's Adagio in G-minor, to play when I got stuck in traffic, to neutralize the stress.

I'm not in the car for long periods of time. Trips are usually local.

Usually I have a news station on (KNX 1070 AM).

When I choose music, it's oldies ('50s-'70s).

With my '66 Plymouth, I usually don't have the radio on because I like to hear the 383-cu-in big block engine.
