Help me pick out music for my car

  1. Apr 7, 2013 #1
    I've had the same CD in my car that I've been listening to for almost a year; a lot of the songs are great, but I'm starting to get sick of some of them. I've started putting some new songs together for a new CD, but I only have this list so far:

    - All Along the Watchtower
    - Another Brick in the Wall
    - Are You Gonna Be My Girl
    - Bohemian Rhapsody
    - A Day in the Life
    - House of the Rising Sun
    - People Are Strange
    - Twist and Shout

    This amounts to a little over a half hour of music, and my CD can hold around 1hr and 10minutes, so I'm looking for more music. Any suggestions?

    I think I enjoyed this song when I was much younger, while driving:

    Or, perhaps not a carpooler.

    That is a most excellent song in the vehicle. Headbanging is much safer than texting.....

    I must say that I love the addition of Poker Face.

    Rider on the Storm is a great song, I might have to add it.

    99 problems and Milkshake. Poker Face is what made me laugh the most, though :smile:

    This is maybe not your type, but if you can stay awake then ambient music is perfect.

    Hmm, not a single one in a major key! (Twist and Shout is "officially" in a major key, but it has heavy use of "blue" minor notes.) So if you somehow got a list of hit songs in minor keys that would likely be of use to you.

    Oh. Guess I couldn't read your puh puh puh poker face, puh puh poker face.
