Latest post of the previous page:

A song about Keke Rosberg, by Galician punk band (!) Siniestro Total. Didn't see this one posted yet, so here you go.



Also, I browsed quickly through the pages, and didn't see this one posted. It's a masterpiece, so don't mind if I missed someone already adding it.



And finally, Finnish singer Arttu Wiskari has a fair few ones which touch car themes. "Mökkitie" became a hit, and it name-drops Henri Toivonen, "Rally idol of young boys", but I'm gonna go with a different one. It's called "Sorateiden Sankarit", which means "Heroes of the Gravel" (well, gravel roads, but that sounds a bit clunky, nay?)

Even has an official music video. Amidst the moonspeak, one may note some familiar words. :)

"Yup, there is no doubt that Joonas marches to the beat of a different drummer. I think his goal may be to be the next Murray Walker."

- Jack Ulstad, on iRacing.com forums

Thanks for the previous ones, good stuff.

Reposting from other topic:



Metal song of the year.


Been to a Saxon gig once where they lowered Biff down onto the stage on a motor bike.

Lemmy of Motörhead once drove onto the stage on a Harley. Never saw that, I was shitting in my daiper at the time.

Not car songs. Just saying.

Bryan Ferry / Roxy Music in 'Virginia Plain', sings of making his stand where his Studebaker takes him....


Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I'll take it
To Robert E. Lee I'll show it
I hope and pray he don't blow it 'cause
We've been around a long time just try try try tryin' to
Make the big time...

Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six days wonder but don't you
Don't you throw my pride aside besides
What's real and make believe
Baby Jane's in Acapulco We are flyin' down to Rio

Throw me a line I'm sinking fast
Clutching at straws can't make it
Havana sound we're trying hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
You're so sheer you're so chic
Teenage rebel of the week

Flavours of the mountain steamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha-cha through till sunrise
Open up exclusive doors oh wow!
Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two got to search for something new

Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my Studebaker takes me
That's where I'll make my stand but wait
Can't you see that Holzer mane?
What's her name?
Virginia Plain

*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Lee Kernaghan - Beautiful Noise ( V8 Supercars Version )



It's the roar of the engine
It's the counting down
It's the smell of the rubber
It's a V8 Sound, it's a power (power)
It's a passion (passion)
It's hittin' the corner holdin' onto a slide
Givin' it hell, gettin' hung out to dry
Well its hardcore (hardcore)
It's what we're here for (here for)

[Chorus:]
It's a beautiful noise
It's a beautiful noise
The rollin' of thunder rollin' down under
It's man and machine
It's chasing the dream
It's a V8 thrill crown on the hill
It's a beautiful noise

[Verse 2: ]
It's a V8 howling dropping through the gears
The pistons screaming ringin' in my ears
It's high octane (octane)
Down pit lane (pit lane)
You're gonna find out what you got
Toe to toe out on the black top
It takes a bold run
To crack the big one

[Chorus: ]
It's a beautiful noise
It's a beautiful noise
The rollin' of thunder rollin' down under
It's man and machine
It's chasing the dream
It's a V8 thrill crown on the hill
It's a beautiful noise

[Verse 3: ]
It's a V8 nation
It's king of the mountain
It's the spirt of Brocky
Holden and Falcon
It's pulling G-Forces on 600 horses
It's the V8 story
The guts and the glory

[Chorus:]
It's a beautiful noise
It's a beautiful noise
The rollin' of thunder rollin' down under
It's man and machine
It's chasing the dream
It's a V8 thrill crown on the hill
It's a beautiful noise

[Outro:]
It's a beautiful noise
Ohhhhhh it's a beautiful noise

*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

This is based entirely on car driving metaphors. It's not really about a road accident. It's about the dude who took the highway to hell, but missed the road, altogether, if you see what they mean. No way this song is about Bon Scott, but there were probably other casualties along their way. I still believe this to be the most ingenious AC/DC record of all, perhaps not the overall best, as there are always other things to consider than vibe, but you've got to be kidding me, if you can't see what mental state they were in, when they recorded this brilliant album, and how it influenced this "odd-one-out". They were damn woke at this point. Something'd hit very close to home, albeit with a bit of a delay. Shows a side to this band which you just won't find anywhere else in their discography.
