First song

Now that I have received my email to build my Model S, I am imagining that first ride and need to decide what music will suit such an occasion. Radar Love maybe? What will be your first driving tune in your new Model S?

"Satisfaction"?
;)
"...driving' 'round the world..."

typo:
"...ridin' 'round the world..."

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm drivin' in my car
And that man comes on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm watchin' my TV
And that man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarrettes as me
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no girl reaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm ridin' round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm signing that
And I'm tryin' to make some girl
Who tells me baby better come back later next week
'Cause you see I'm on losing streak
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction 

Maybe "Sail" by AWOLNATION

Something about this video and the Model S seem to go together for me...

I have upgraded sound but will ride in pure silence for my first ride so my Model S and I can get to know one another. No Brian H, not in the Biblical sense.

BYT;
Promise?

Yello
"Oh yeah!"

LOL, well, I hate making promises I may not be able to keep.

"Important question for the day you take ownership of the car" (private)

"It's my time to fly" from the Titan AE soundtrack :P

Yello: The Race from album Flag. Watch your speed if you listen that.

@Volker
Thanks for that link, there are some great song suggestions there. I guess I have about ninety days to figure it out.

Running on empty - Jackson Browne

Flight of the Bumblebee. By anybody.

>>:-O

How are we missing the obvious, all time chessiest wedding song, but totally relevant to the tesla... Electric Boogie (i.e. Electric Slide)!

"I'll teach you the electric Slide.."
"It's Electric, Boogie Woogie Woogie!"

go ahead and check out the lyrics, seems like a no brainer.

Or am I too literal?

The problem is that you're liable to end up with an "Every Breath You Take" situation where the lyrics don't really fit, because there haven't been many songs written about electric cars. But I'm sure there will be plenty of apt titles:
I'm In Love with My Car*
Enjoy The Silence
Electric Avenue
Fast Car
All I Want Is You
Enjoy The Ride (by Morcheeba)
... and for those of you a little eager on the go pedal ...
Smooth Criminal

* Somebody should get Roger Taylor in a Model S so he can update the lyrics. The first line is very apt...

Bob Dylan's highway 61 revisited

Song's Specifically about Electric Cars? Corny buy you asked for them, well, you didn't really ask, but in my mind's eye you did.

They Might Be Giants - Electric Car - Official Music Video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BPU5mKipNo

Deb Seymour: "Little ZENN Car" -

(Nothing But) Flowers

From the age of the dinosaurs
Cars have run on gasoline
Where, where have they gone?

How about "Magic" by the Cars?

"Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car" -- Billy Ocean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvarxGzIU3M . Minus the sound of the car starting at the beginning.

+1 for Dippin in my Tesla - J Brave!!

@John56

+1 for Dippin in my Tesla - J Brave!!

Thanks.

Now, Brian H has already gone on record on another forum that he despises both music videos and Bollywood, ;-) but those who don't here's one that features a Roadster.

I like the refrain, "These are my dreams, I'm living them now. To all of my haters I'll never give ground."

Kind of reminds me of Elon.

Larry;
And I hate rap even worse! But this isn't bad, almost musical. I'm impressed!

@Tiebreaker

But it bemoans the loss of highways

The highways and cars
Were sacrificed for agriculture
I thought that we'd start over
But I guess I was wrong

Once there were parking lots
Now it's a peaceful oasis

...

you got it, you got it

@BYT

I think TMBG might have it.

However my wife suggested something more emotive like " How You Like Me Now?".

Bad link. List of "Spotlight videos", that one not included.

@Brian

It's good to see you've changed your outlook. In general I usually don't care for the the rap/hip hop musical style either, but I found that if I listened to Dippin a few times it grew on me in a campy sort of way. So when I figure out this portable music thing I'm definately going to add this song it to my Model S play list.

Hey, we better get our act together and start keeping up with the Millennial Generation or get left in the dust! For instance I felt compelled to do a facebook page and learn to text to keep tabs on my nieces. That was promptly followed by a twitter account to keep up with Elon. ;-)

If we are going with the straight electric theme, then I am partial to the Polecats - Make a Circuit With Me
