Playlist

The Playlist is a list of songs about cars.  Due to copyright restrictions, none of them are available for listening directly from The Crittenden Automotive Library, but this list can be taken to an online music program such as iTunes or Myspace.

In addition to these songs, there are several bands named for automobiles or trucks.  These include:  The Cars, Chevelle, and REO Speedwagon.

409The Beach Boys1962
"409" is a song written by Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Gary Usher for the American rock and roll band, The Beach Boys. The song features Mike Love singing lead vocals. It was originally released as the b-side of the "Surfin' Safari" single. It was later released on their 1962 album, Surfin' Safari, and it was also on their 1963 album, Little Deuce Coupe. "Surfin Safari" would reach #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, while 409 reached #76. Originally promoted as the A-side by Capitol, "409" went on to feature in many regional markets. It was the most popular song of 1962 in Dallas (KBOX chart) and, also as the A-side penetrated the top tens of Vancouver, Seattle, Denver and San Bernardino and top 30 in Los Angeles (KFWB). It was co-hit with its later designated A-side near the top of playlists in most other areas.

The "409" of the song is the Chevrolet 409, a 409 cubic inch W-series V8 engine popular with "hot rodders" of the time. Gary Usher, who wrote the majority of the lyric for the song dreamed at that time of one day owning a Chevrolet 409. The song was originally credited to just Wilson and Usher. Mike Love's name was added as a result of a lawsuit filed by him against Wilson in the 1990s. The popularity of the song has added to the collector value of Chevys equipped with an original 409 engine, especially the 1962 models, the year the some came out. (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)
Beep, BeepThe Playmates1958
"Beep, Beep" ("The Little Nash Rambler") was a song which utilized the "beep, beep" sound in a tempo-changing novelty record recorded by The Playmates in 1958. The record became a #4 hit on the Billboard Top 40 chart for twelve weeks. The lyrics tell the story of how the beep-beep horn of the "Little Nash Rambler" following close behind the driver of a Cadillac infuriates him into going ever faster -- but the Rambler driver keeps pace with the Cadillac, in order to yell out of his window to the Cadillac driver in the final line of the song, "Hey, buddy, how can I get this car out of second gear?"

Drive ByTrain2012
"Drive By" is a song by American pop rock band Train from their upcoming sixth studio album, California 37. It was released in the United States as the album's lead single on January 10, 2012. The song was written by lead singer Pat Monahan and Norwegian songwriting duo Espen Lind, Amund Bjørklund, the same team responsible for Train's 2010 hit single "Hey, Soul Sister". "Drive By" charted at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band's fifth top 20 hit in the US. Internationally, the song became a top 10 hit in 11 countries. "Drive By" is a pop rock song. The instrumentation consists of "buoyant acoustic riffs and a hook-laden melody". Lead singer Pat Monahan sings in a characteristic "sing-talk vocal croon". A music video for the song was first released onto YouTube on February 15, 2012. It opens with Monahan on the phone with his old girlfriend, who scolds him, saying that he was the one who left, before saying that she has to get to work, and hangs up. Monahan then goes to the garage and gets into his blue 1967 Pontiac Firebird, and starts driving through San Francisco, at an intersection being joined by a Jimmy Stafford driving a yellow Chevrolet Camaro and Scott Underwood driving a red Ford Mustang. Then the scene shifts to Monahan, Underwood and Stafford performing together under a tree, and Monahan explains how he met his old girlfriend: she worked as the tour guide at the winery that Monahan visited. Later at the winery they participated in a three-legged race, crushed grapes and tasted some wine. However, their relationship is merely a one-night stand, as Monahan, after waking up in bed next to her, leaves before she wakes up. Back to present, the band arrives at some sort of classic car meeting. Later he leads the whole fleet of classic cars to the same winery, where he met his love interest. After stopping in front of the winery, he sings the last verse of the song ("Oh I swear to you, I'll be there for you, this is not a drive-by"), and eventually reconciles with his girlfriend.

I Can't Drive 55Sammy Hagar1984
"I Can't Drive 55" was the lead single and first track from Sammy Hagar's eighth studio album VOA in 1984. Perpetuated by a very successful music video, it became a concert staple that continued throughout Sammy's tours as a member of Van Halen. It is the 100th song on VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs.

"I was in a rent-a-car that wouldn't go much faster than 55 miles an hour. I was on my way back from Africa. I did a safari for three months throughout Africa. A really great vacation after Three Lock Box. I was traveling for 24 hours, I got to New York City, changed planes, Albany, New York. Got in a rent-a-car. Had a place in Lake Placid at the time, a little log cabin, I used to go there and write with my little boy. Aaron, at that time, went to North Country school when I was on tour. I would go there and see him. It was a really cool getaway. But it took two and a half hours to drive there from Albany. And I was driving from Albany, New York at 2:00 in the morning, burnt from all the travel. Cop stopped me for doing 62 on a four lane road when there was no one else in sight. Then the guy gave me a ticket I was doing 62. And he said, 'We give tickets around here for over-60.' and I said, 'I can't drive 55.' I grabbed a paper and a pen, and I swear the guy was writing the ticket and I was writing the lyrics. I got to Lake Placid, I had a guitar set-up there. And I wrote that song there on the spot. Burnt." —Sammy Hagar, 1994

The song's video includes Sammy and his band being chased and jailed by the California Highway Patrol for traffic violations. The video shows Sammy driving a black Ferrari BB512i which is later tuned up by Sammy's real mechanic, Claudio Zampolli. Claudio was driving the Ferrari during the video's opening shot, where the Ferrari fish-tails across the speedway. The video was shot on location at the Saugus Speedway in Santa Clarita, California. Sammy claims in the commentary for the video on the DVD, "The Long Road to Cabo" that he burned out his clutch during the video. Sammy drove a 512, but a 308 was also used. Sammy claims it cost him $5800 to fix. The yellow jumpsuit worn by Sammy in the video, can be seen at the New Orleans Hard Rock Cafe. A trial scene is presided over by a judge played in a cameo appearance by John Kalodner. The judges props were borrowed from Director, Bob Zemeckis who had filmed the movie, "Used Cars." The sets were built, and the video was shot during the Summer. There was no air conditioning in the jailhouse set, so the cast and crew were hot. A stuntman was used for Sammy's stunts. An exploding ramp was used to throw Sammy across the courtroom.

The song has been a signature track for Hagar during and after his tenure with Van Halen, and is commonly used on TV programs and commercials related to automotive racing. Most recently, the song was featured in a NAPA Auto Parts commercial, where NASCAR drivers Michael Waltrip and teammate Dale Jarrett are asking Hagar to keep the noise down during a recording session; in response, Hagar asked Waltrip if he could drive faster. Waltrip's car number at the time of the 2007 commercial was #55 and he had failed to qualify for some races. In 2001, NBC Sports had Hagar record a "corrected" version, now known as "I Can't Drive 65," reflecting the common 65 MPH speed limit on freeways, for use during Budweiser Pole Award presentations on Winston Cup Series broadcasts on NBC and TNT. It was used from 2001 to 2003 during the broadcasts. The accelerated version of the song was also available as a download for NHL Rivals 2004. In 2008, Hagar recorded a newer version of the song that was used in NASCAR Dirt to Daytona 2008 called I can't drive 195, reflecting to the speeds used on NASCAR's biggest tracks Daytona and Talladega. In 2011, the song became the opening theme for ESPN's NASCAR coverage for the 2011 season.

The song is included on Van Halen's 1986 live video release Live Without a Net. This song is a playable track in the music video game Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades. This song was used as background music to illustrate the harshness of the "alternate" 1985 in the film Back to the Future Part II. In Forza Motorsport 4, players that at any time reach 125 MPH in a 1984 Ferrari GTO will unlock a badge and title titled "I Can't Drive 55!" (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)
Life is a HighwayTom Cochrane1991
"Life Is a Highway" is a song written by Tom Cochrane, from his 1991 album Mad Mad World. The song was Cochrane's most famous song, as it was a number one hit in his native Canada. The song also peaked at number six on the Billboard charts in the United States in 1992. The song has been famously covered by Rascal Flatts for the Cars soundtrack, as well as by Chris LeDoux and Jerry Jeff Walker. In the 1990s Cochrane took his family to West Africa where he helped to raise awareness and money for the World Vision famine relief organization. That experience shaped his next album Mad Mad World which contained "Life Is a Highway". The song was Cochrane's only Top 40 hit in the United States. The original video for "Life Is a Highway" was produced by Albert Botha who went on to line produce two films for Saturday Night Live, Superstar starring Molly Shannon and The Ladies Man starring Tim Meadows. The video was shot in Alberta's Badlands, near the city of Drumheller. Many of the shots are in familiar locations along the Dinosaur Trail, including Tom playing guitar amid the 'Hoodoos' and the couple running around the car while it rides the Bleriot Ferry across the Red Deer River. The car which features in the music video is a 1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport. The song was used in 1998 TV advertisements by Cleveland, Ohio-based bank National City Corp. In 1994 the song was used for promotional purposes for the NBC TV series VIPER as a background track. In the episode, "Employee Transfer" which aired in the fifth season of The Office, three of the characters sing the song while driving a character from Scranton to Nashua.

Life is a HighwayChris LeDoux1998
In 1998, Chris LeDoux released a cover of "Life Is a Highway" on the album One Road Man. Changes include the timing of vocal entrances on the chorus, and location names between the first and second chorus. This version reached number 64 on the country music charts. (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)
Life is a HighwayRascal Flatts2006
In 2006, American country band Rascal Flatts covered this song for the Disney/Pixar animated film Cars. The movie was released on June 9, 2006. The song sold a large quantity of digital downloads, leading to a top ten peak on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, the cover was placed as a bonus track on later versions of the album Me and My Gang, and also was included on their Greatest Hits Volume 1. This version also won the "Favorite Song from a Movie" award at the 33rd People's Choice Awards. The instrumental of the Rascal Flatts' cover version was prominently featured in the Top Gear American special aired February 11, 2007. The song is included on the soundtrack for Lego Rock Band. The music video portrays the three band members pulling into a drive-in theater driving three vintage vehicles. The cars are allusive to three characters from the movie: Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson and Mater. As the projector rolls, scenes from the Disney/Pixar movie Cars are shown as the band plays through the number. It was directed by Shaun Silva. The Rascal Flatts version subsequently became a hit on the US Hot 100 chart, where it peaked at number 7. Even though it was not officially released to country radio, many country stations played the song as an album cut, overlapping with their then-current country single "My Wish". The unsolicited country airplay brought "Life Is a Highway" to number 18 on the country chart. (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)
Lost HighwayBon Jovi2007
"Lost Highway" is a song by American band Bon Jovi. Written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and John Shanks, it is the first track on the album of the same name. The song charted at #15 on the Billboard hot adult top 40 tracks. When the band was writing the song, they took the title both from Hank Williams song and Nashville record company Lost Highway. As soon as they have arrived in Nashville they came up with the idea of the song, written it and recorded it in 48 hours.[2] It could not make the UK Top 75 Singles Chart. In the US, it peaked at #15 on Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks.[3] A slightly different version of the title track "Lost Highway" was used in the movie Wild Hogs alongside another Bon Jovi song "Wanted Dead or Alive". The video was directed by Anthony Bongiovi and Dave Robertson, featuring band members playing in a country bar and a young woman driving a Saturn Sky on the country road. Suddenly on the radio, she hears the announcement "Here is new one from Bon Jovi. It's Lost Highway". There are also girl and a man on a chopper and family in the station wagon driving on the same road. After a while they all run into a traffic jam because of the road works. Soon they all become very frustrated, the woman in the Saturn Sky takes a map and finds a country road. She decides to turn around, hits the gas and heads toward the bar. Quickly the other drivers follow her, they all arrive in front of a country bar where Bon Jovi are playing. By the time they enter the bar, the band members had already left. The exterior shots of the bar used in video are shots of the Iron Bull Sallon on Route 120 in Lakemoor and the interior of the bar was shot in Berwyn. (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)

Mercury BluesAlan Jackson1993
"Mercury Blues" is the title of song written by K. C. Douglas and Robert Geddins in 1949. The song, originally titled "Mercury Boogie," pays homage to the American automobile, which ended production in 2010. American country music singer Alan Jackson recorded the song for his album , A Lot About Livin' (And a Little 'Bout Love). It was released in September 1993 as the fourth single from the album. His version of the song peaked at number 2 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart and the RPM Country Tracks in Canada. The music video was directed by Piers Plowden and premiered in mid-1993. Keith Urban makes an appearance in the video as a guitar player. His rendition was used by the Ford Motor Company for Ford pickup truck commercials, changing the line "crazy 'bout a Mercury" to "crazy 'bout a Ford truck."[5] Jackson performed the original "Mercury" version of the song live "in-studio" on an episode of the hit ABC sitcom Home Improvement in 1996.

Pickup ManJoe Diffie1994
"Pickup Man" is the title of a song recorded by American country music artist Joe Diffie. Released in October 1994, the song was his longest-lasting Number One hit, having spent four weeks at Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts between December 1994 and January 1995. The song, a moderate up-tempo, is about a man who reasons he can meet the woman of his dreams by driving a pickup truck. At one point, he is able to secure a ride for a high school homecoming queen. "Pickup man", in this sense, has a double meaning — i.e., he is not only driving a pickup truck, but he is also "picking up" women in it. The music video was directed by Deaton Flanigan. The majority of the music video for this song was filmed on location at a drive-in theater in Lewisburg, Tennessee. In 2005, a rewritten version of "Pickup Man" was used in television commercials for the restaurant chain Applebee's, to promote their "Carside To Go" service. (Source: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA 3.0)
Red BarchettaRush1981
"Red Barchetta" is a song by rock band Rush from their album Moving Pictures. The song describes a future in which many classes of vehicles have been prohibited by "the Motor Law". The narrator's uncle has kept one of these illegal vehicles (the titular red barchetta sportscar) in pristine condition for some "fifty-odd years" and keeps it hidden at his secret country home (previously a farm before the enactment of the aforementioned Motor Law). During one of his weekly drives, the narrator encounters an "alloy air car" that begins to chase him along the roads. A second such vehicle soon joins the pursuit, which continues until the narrator drives his Barchetta across a one-lane bridge that is too narrow for the air cars. The song ends with the narrator returning safely to his uncle's farm.

The song was inspired by the futuristic short story "A Nice Morning Drive", by Richard Foster and published in the November 1973 issue of Road and Track magazine. The story describes a similar future in which increasingly stringent safety regulations have forced cars to evolve into massive Modern Safety Vehicles (MSVs), capable of withstanding a 50-mile-per-hour impact without injury to the driver. Consequently, drivers of MSVs have become less safety-conscious and more aggressive, and "bouncing" (intentionally ramming) the older, smaller cars is a common sport among some. Rush lyricist Neil Peart made several attempts to contact Foster while working on the album, but Road and Track did not have an up-to-date address, and Rush were forced to settle for a brief "Inspired by" note in the lyric sheet mentioning the story. In July 2007, Foster and Peart finally made contact with one another; Foster later posted an online account of their journey by motorcycle through the backwoods of West Virginia between stops on Rush's Snakes and Arrows tour. Neil Peart also described the Barchetta like the guitar in the song "2112". Barchetta, literally "small boat" in Italian, is the diminutive form of barca ("boat" or "craft"). In the automotive industry, the term is used for a 2-seat car without any kind of roof. It is normally pronounced Italian pronunciation: [barˈketta]. The song has also inspired Grant Brough's novel by the same name. The theme of the song's story is similar to the 1981 movie The Last Chase, starring Lee Majors and Burgess Meredith.
