>Green Onions-Spencer Davis
not unless he covered the booker t and the MGs tune.
and that brings up a whole separate category: tunes by outfits with cars or car makes in their name!
hang em high: booker t and the mgs then.

Is that Jimi on guitar?
He worked as a session musician before he hit it big.

For Little Richard too - "He give it ALL to ya, played so goood, he made my big toe shoot straight up in my boot."
Schubert's Unfinished is great driving music.
"Terraplane Blues" by Robert Johnson
"Highway 49" by Howlin' Wolf
"Red Barchetta", absoLUTEly
"Panama" by Van Halen
"King Of The Hill" by David Lee Roth
"Redneck" by Lamb of God - not strictly automotive in theme, but runs like a revving cackler

One of mine would be "Benny & the Jets" by Sir Elton John. everytime I hear that song I think of the movie "Aloha Bobby and Rose" . Which is a car movie. We use to see that Camaro cruise Van Nuys Blvd. Brings back good memories.

The original Stick Shift and a cover by The Ventures, plus anything else by The Ventures. Great group. Great bunch of guys. Dan

Number one: Could just as well have put this in the thread already going about car music. Number two: It's no reason to break the no swearing rule. Number three: It doesn't seem to have a thing to do with cars or models, it's just another idiot screaming unintelligably into a mic. Sorry. I don't like it at all.
Wow! I missed the obituary, and the announcement of your promotion...

I can't believe it took 5 pages for someone to mention Detroit Rock City! It was the first one that came to my mind.
I posted it on page 3, post #51. Great song!!!

well yeah but thats not what the photo was...it was from a special appearance by wilson pickett at a record company party and jimmy was in the band but well known in blues circles, partially as a studio musician but mostly jimmy (ah i forget the name he used, James?) was on the road in one or another soul back up band on the chitlin circuit.
and you want to see soul music (sorry, no cars), here is james brown in one of his best ever filmed performances, i think it is 6 of the most intense musical moments ever captured on video...and the rolling stones got to follow this:
good example of the sort of ensemble jimi was playing in in those pre-psychedelic days.
but now i am straying far from cars...

Just copy the url from the top of the youtube page and paste it here. That will make the video visible and playable right here.
That's what I did. I thought? It appears I'm not the only one having a problem with it.
To make sure we're speaking the same language, the address in the top of the browser?
