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?
@mw The last time I saw Sammy Hagar he changed the lyrics to "I Can't Drive 65". :D
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."
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.
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. :)
(Performance Signature, Pearl White, Tan Interior.)
@Runar, good job!
Too cool for school!
You all realize those video selections won't show video. Just the sound tracks! Video is verboten.
