Music to lower your roof by.....

I'm glad there are still a lot of contributions to the top ten of what music is best to listen to whilst driving.

But this request is for suggestions for the ultimate unadulterated pose down anthems for the following or similar scenerio.

  • Its an day/evening with friends, not all of them know you own an SLK
  • You start walking towards a bunch of cars....
  • You turn the car's lights on with your remote key lock...initial gasps as they didn't realise you had a top notch car.
  • Sit comfortably in your seats and bring across your seatbelt (red ones in our case) and click them into place. (Obviously down in slow motion, to enrich the scene).
  • Turn on the engine...
  • Let the next 30 seconds be the pinnacle turning point of their lives!!!
  • Cue the music and play at a load volume
  • Start lowering the roof.......
Option 1: 50 Cent ft. Mobb Deep - Outta control.



Option 2: Xzibit -Get your walk on.


Option 3: The Loveliers -Sugarfree (Brilliant on the Audio 20).
  • Ensure you strike the ultimate cool pose and drive away!!!
This scenerio can be used outside a bar, driving away from a Waitrose/Sainsbury carpark (UK), (or the American equivalent, Kroger), Resturant where clients are able to eat at tables on the pavement. Single sequence traffic/stop lights at a busy junction (where you are guarenteed enough time to lower your roof).


Any further suggestion would be great and a bit of a laugh with links to Youtube would be helpful.

Nice toons, but, for the ultimate pose, try something classical, say by Mahler or Bruckner - totally unexpected, and has an effect similar to helicopter gu nships playing Wagner!!

The obvious choice to this is.... Thus Spoke Zarathrusta by Richard Strauss or otherwise known as the theme to 2001!

Bin's dead (RIH), but we got the point. Tons of good music for driving, but our taste differ. No rapola on my victrola.
