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?

The last time I saw Sammy Hagar he changed the lyrics to
"I Can't Drive 65".

That's ok. I can't drive 65 either! ;)

"On the road again" Willie Nelson

Howzabout [Signature] Red Barchetta by Rush.

@pilotSteve +1 for At Last.

I love that song ... more so as it is the first dance song at my wedding.

Captain_Zap: Well I guess I show my age... I can't drive 65 either! LOL

How soon will he escalate to 75? <8-0

"Drive " by Incubus.

My first will be the Stone's Start Me Up. The second will be Simon and Garfunkel's Sounds of Silence. What could be more appropriate for a powerful, silent EV.

Sounds of Silence........good call jackhub.

Right now I'm torn, but I'm leaning toward "take 5" by Dave Brubeck. Its driving 5/4 beat is both relaxing and pushes me forward at the same time. And in a car this quiet, you can really savor a legendary jazz piece like this one.

You might give a listen to Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells

Life is a Highway - Tom Cochrane.

(Rascal Flats was a cover)

Autobahn - Kraftwerk

Actually I kind of like that song they played prior to the Supercharger event - The Veldt, by deadmau5

And the lyrics somehow fit the car. I can easily picture myself driving silently along at night listening to it.

+1 epley for the play list.

And I'll add "Oh, Yeah" by Yello (you might remember it as the Ferrari song from Ferris Beuller's Day Off).

"Doh Doh....chicka chickaahhhhhhhhhhhhh."

Tesla Sally?

I can't drive 55!

I like the idea of queuing up "Fight for your Right" by the Beastie Boys and hitting the goose pedal right after he yells, "Kick it!"

I was at a show a couple weeks ago and Mike Portnoy (Hall of Fame drummer for Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold, Transatlantic, and many more) came out during the encore and said he had a fantasy about singing a song on stage since he was a little kid. Until then I had totally forgotten the song. He gave up the drum kit to Neil Morse and took the mike. It was:

"Crazy Horses" - a song protesting car pollution that was written by the Osmonds. Mike Portnoy really rocked it out at the live show I was at.

(I wish I could find a better recording of it to share.)

Here's the original "Crazy Horses"

How about the Rocky theme song?

Speed demon Michael Jackson

I have complied a playlist with all the songs mentioned in this thread, at Spotify.

"Tesla Model S"

Should be available for everyone who search iwthin Spotify.



@Runar, LOL, Awesome! I look forward to discovering some new tunes when I listed to that playlist in my Model S.

Geek warning.

I picked the music from "Star Trek the Motion Picture" where Kirk is re-introduced to the Enterprise after her first refit.

I liked it because it showed them doing a "walk around" before entering, something I figure everyone would do with a new car. :)

@Runar, good job!

Too cool for school!

You all realize those video selections won't show video. Just the sound tracks! Video is verboten.
