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?
"Trans Island Skyway" by Donald Fagen, from the 1993 album "Kamakiriad".
It's gotta be "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf!
I picked Dreams by Van Halen.
Either Mr. Blue Sky by ELO or Caddy-O by the Cars....however, Les Mis would rock.
Whatever happens to be next on Google Play on my phone when I get it paired with the stereo.
@jat You can tell slacker radio to play anything you want (while you pair your phone via bluetooth).
My first Slacker request by voice command with 4.0 software was King Crimson, In the Court of the Crimson King. Couldn't quite pump it up to 11, though.
rzitrin-- good choice-- Now I'll have to ask Slacker for Epitaph tomorrow.
Tesla's (the band) Edison's Medicine
My car arrives tomorrow - then I fly to the east coast on Friday for three days with it parked at SeaTac, taunting me from a distance as I enjoy my mid-sized rental SUV with cloth seats and the funk of 30 or 40 thousand miles of various misuse on the roads of America.
So, fittingly, I'll probably listen to "Three Days" by Janes Addiction - 10 minutes and 46 seconds of pure bliss.
Love the Steppenwolf and King Crimson recommendations. I am deferred out until March or April, so I hope to get great ideas from this thread by then.
My first song was "Running Down A Dream" by Tom Petty. It was just the first song that popped into my head to test slacker radio with when I hit the freeway. Funnest ride of my life!
Moxy Fruvus, "One I was the king of Spain......" Oughta be good for a laugh or two, assuming I can find my copy -.-
I was planning to play "Great Escape" by The Rifles, but technically, the first song that played in my car was "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay, when my delivery specialist was showing me how to use Slacker Radio. I was OK with that too ;)
But when I took it out for my first drive, I did play Great Escape :)
"Today could be the day you might make a change..."
If I had the means/oppertunity to own this car my first drive would go as follows...
First I would roll up a big fat doobie and smoke it in the garage as I stare at this wonderful car. Then, I would go for a nice long drive on surrounding country roads, stopping at straightaways just so I could 'punch it' to test out this car's amazing power.
My playlist would be:
1. Electric Ave - Eddy Grant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuwxZSIS__4
2. Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOVHPeuR5o0
3. Funk Soul Brother - Fat Boy Slim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBClImpnfAg
4. Highway Star - Deep Purple: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh0iihjANPc
5. Paranoid - Black Sabbath: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-yzrP2iV4g
6. La Grange - ZZ Top: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vppbdf-qtGU
7. Many more! My taste is all over the map!
When I got home, the battery low, Id park it in the driveway. Roll up another, and stare at this beautiful car as. Once relaxed I would wash and wax the car by hand (even if it didnt need it) so I could 'bond' with the car further.
This is pure fantasy for me - I really hope to own one of these cars one day!
@via044 - I hear ya. I'm all over the map too. Case in point, I'm leaning hard towards 'Got A Lot of Livin To Do' by Sammy Davis Jr. :-)
I give everyone I show the car one voice-actuated Slacker tune to choose. It's working about 60% of the time.
First choice was my old law school and basketball-playing buddy, who chose Friend of the Devil. This car is no devil, but the color is devilishly red.
KevinR - I went to Epitaph next for the soaring crescendo. Great!
"Feels like the First time" - by Foreigner
Black Celebration - Depeche Mode Red Barchetta - Rush
Solar on the roof powering the NEMA 14-50 >>>>> powering the Model S..
It's gotta be "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles.
We are at the cusp of powering everything with the sun. The Tesla Model Sun is just the beginning!!
Off oil and, off coal.... it all starts here... it all starts now. We're making it happen!!!
"Going the Distance" - Cake
Definitely going to be whipping up a playlist in the weeks between finalizing and delivery, whenever that may be.
For every new person I give a ride to I have them request a tune off Slacker. Today it was "Born to be Wild" . Yesterday it was "Washington Bridge".
@KevinR - Neat idea, fellow Kevin named person. I might have to steal that when I finally get mine :D
It was Panama.
"Face Pollution" by Soundgarden
Influenced by my 3 and 5 year old, maybe this will be my first song when the car arrives...
"We're going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship..."
kick start my heart. motley crue
"We're off to see the Wizard..." ;)
'Electric' by swedish popstar Robyn.
Mine was "Lose Yourself" by Eminem (from 8 Mile). I never intended it to be . . . but it was awesome! Picking up from the factory, the delivery specialist asked my favorite artist to demonstrate Slacker, so i randomly picked Eminem. It provided the perfect tempo as we worked our way through all the features of the touchscreen - building excitement as each revolutionary aspect of the Model S was finally becoming tangible in my life.
And I loved the irony of blasting Detroit's iconic song as I prepared to whisk out of the Fremont factory into the heart of silicon valley in a car that has silently begun the auto industry revolution!!
