    This subject was addressed in P.J. O’Rourke’s classic, “How to Drive Fast While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink”:

    “There’s been a lot of discussion about what kind of music to listen to while staring doom square in the eye and not blinking unless you get some grit under your contacts. Watch out for the fellow who tunes his FM to the classical station. He thinks a little Rimsky-Korsakov makes things more dramatic – like in a foreign movie. That’s ***** style. This kind of guy’s idea of a fast drive is a seventy-five-mile-an-hour cruise up to the summer cottage after one brandy and soda. The true skidmark artist prefers something cheery and upbeat – “Night on Disco Mountain” or “Boogie Oogie Oogie” or whatever it is that the teenage lovely wants to shake her buns to. Remember her? So what do you care what’s on the &^%$ing tape deck? The high, hot whine of the engine, the throaty pitch of the exhaust, the wind in your beer can, the gentle slurping noises from her little bud-red lips – that’s all the music your ears need, although side two of the first Velvet Underground album is nice if you absolutely insist.”

    As an Army Brat I had ample opportunity to be in cars blowing down the autobahn during the golden era of classic rock. Good times.

    I came here to post Airbag. Ful Stop is a tune I didn't fully appreciate until I listened to it while driving on an empty highway late at night.
