    Top Song, Top Gear!

    Hey chaps,

    For those that have been watching the new series of Top Gear [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] has anyone submitted their vote for best driving song?

    Top Gear Song Survey

    It's a bloody tough decision to make isn't it?

    What suggestions do us VAG drivers have? I think one of my suggestions would be the Foo Fighters, All My Life.

    Any others?

    Re: Top Song, Top Gear!

    I find that my mpg and average speed are dependant on what is in the CD player [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    I like country music (yes, I am admitting this) and trance/dance music... there are so many trance tracks that are perfect to drive to, but they tend to build into a loud climax which ends up with me at 100mph+

    I dropped the GF off at Gatwick on Monday AM, and had some trancy stuff playing on the way back, to try and cheer me up a bit (not going to see her for about 3 months) and ended up at 120 on the M25 - not a good idea. Had the stereo so loud that engine noise (and road noise) was a thing of the past, had no idea I was going that fast....

    Stiltskin - Inside

    How are they going to see what is the best song? Everybody has a different tune so it will be down to 10 people picking the same song (which may or may not be good) and then it's the best song??? Pointless fun I suppose.

    Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, Allegro moderato!!!!

    Trust me on this one.

    Audi SA used it in their add for the original RS2 Avant. Picture the Audi (that metallic blue) storming along a mountain pass with dramatic classical music blaring out!!!

    Every time I play this in the car I start off relaxed doing the speed limit and end up driving like a complete [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] as the music builds... :-)))
