So many great car songs that you just kind of forget about. Great posts so far. Was going to post the Beatles "Drive My Car" but EDS1275 beat me to it with Macca's version.

Don't forget too, that Springsteen's "Blinded by the Light" is about a 32 Deuce "roller", so I'm told, anyway.

All time vote is a tie between "Little Red Corvette" and "Little Deuce Coupe", but as always, YMMV. :applause:

So, what do you think are the best songs about cars?

In no particular order...

Based upon my personal experiences with this song, I don't think it is about a car...but a girl I knew in college liked to take it out for a spin almost as much as I wanted too...

The first time I . . . ahem . . . had fun in a car, this (studio version) was on the radio (1982).

In the late 70s Johansen and his band were one of the best things going in Rock and roll, IMO. His first solo album was a killer. By the time Live It Up came out he had lost or the times had changed or something. His bad def had lost its mojo. I had seen him in ATL on the In style tour and it was one of the best shows I'd ever seen. In the early 80s he was opening for Pat Benatar (cheese) sort of trying to do the same thing and I felt sorry for him. In the time right after the Dolls broke up he was like the perfect combo of new and old rock and roll. Had a kickass band and he was a great front man.
