Music and cars seem to go hand in hand. For example, is a road trip really a road trip without some sweet tunes?

It should be no surprise, then, that cars are often the focus of some of our favorite artists.

Don't believe us? Check out the forum for a list—three pages long at the time of writing this—of everyone's …

The Key To Her Ferrari - Thomas Dolby

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qwoS_4-PQg

There was one room in her house that was always kept locked...
It was the garage!

I don't want your love
I don't want your money
I just want the key to your Ferrari
Don't want your bed
I don't want your body
I want the key to your Ferrari
I'm gonna rip it - shine it - rev it - scoot it - skid it -
Jam it - rev it - skip it - gun it
Up and down the 101
Don't want your love
Don't want your money, girl
I said all I want is the key to your Ferrari

And then I saw her... she was a bright red '64 GTO with fins and
Gills like some giant piranha fish, some obscene phallic symbol on
Wheels... little rivers of anticipation ran down my inseam as I
Kicked those five hundred Italian horses into life and left
Reality behind me: fifty, sixty, seventy miles an hour... my hand
Slipped inside the belt of my trousers as we passed eighty, ninety
Miles an hour... my hand slipped inside the belt of my trousers and
As we hit the magic 100 my love exploded all over her bright pink

Leather interior... and at that moment, I thought of my mother...

Don't need no drugs
Don't need no liquor
All I want is the key to your Ferrari
You ruby lips - pa!
Your perfect figure - ecch!
I just want the key to your Ferrari
I'm gonna rev it - jam it - scram it - rip it - tear it - bare it -
Ram it - repair it - scoot it
Up and down the 101
Don't want your love
Don't want your money, girl
I said all I want is the key to your Ferrari
He's gonna rev it - scoot it - skid it - rev it - skip it - gun it -
Brake it - zoom it - vacuum it
Up and down the 101
Don't want your love
Don't want your money, girl
I said all I want is the key to your Ferrari
I just want the key to your Ferrari
(Cause aliens ate my Buick)

In reply to RadBarchetta :

The only one that always cones to mind.

There are others that have come up- like Little Red Corvette, but Rush is the only one that always is at the top.

When I remember which band has an Alfisti in it, I'll post it.  I think it was J Giles Band.  But too much wine and rum to remember.

Red Barchetta is probably the best, but I've also always enjoyed Hot Rod Lincoln by Commander Cody.

I hope this link works, 'cause I doubt most folks here have heard of Hayden Sayers. I met him in VA in a little pub 'bout 02. Bought one of his albums just for his song. (was better live!)

Hadn’t thought about it, but definitely counts; I still remember that rumbling sound!!!

Pickup Man-Joe Diffie

Maybe not a car song per se but Life is a Highway by Tom Chocane and Rascall Flatts.

David Lindley and El Rayo-X belting out 'Mercury Blues'.  The subject matter is a Mercury 49 whick makes it onto the autobahn in this rendition of the tune. Interestingly the drummer is Ian Wallace who had a heck of a carer in music.

In a distant second since they drive a little slower, and I grew up in L.A.,  well,  East L.A. actually-  the antitheses of ultimate grip,  Low Rider.

I was born yesterday
When they brought my Kamakiri
When they handed me the keys
It's a steam-power 10
The frame is out of Glasgow
The tech is Balinese
It's not a freeway bullet
Or a bug with monster wheels
It's a total biosphere
The farm in the back
Is hydroponic
Good, fresh things
Every day of the year
Good, fresh things
Every day of the year

With all screens and functions
In sync lock with Tripstar
This cool rolling bubble
Is all set to samba
This route could be trouble
(This route could be trouble)

Radar Love?

Highway Song?

Both of them are the cause of several speeding tickets.
