    3am Tune

    OK, it's 3am and you're on an anonymous motorway driving home alone after a heavy weekend on the beers. Your head is nodding and you've got the window slightly open to get a bit of fresh air. The next services are about 10 miles away and you desperately need some inspiration to help get you to your next espresso.

    The question is:
    What is the number one tune that will wake you up and get you there alive?

    NB I'm sure everyone's got about a dozen but the point of this is that you can only name ONE song so no lists or anything like that - can be any genre/era though...

    Mine is... Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

    I'm not a Dire Straits fan at all, in fact i'm into old school house / indie but the guitar rift at the beginning does something to me!

    Oh Yeah blast from the past. Gonna dig out my album now.

    Singing it in my head now.

    I dont think that would be the song for me though.

    It would have to be some kind of uplifting trance anthom, that make the hairs on the back of your neck tingle and stand up on end. I'm crap with song names though.

    I had that track 2 years before it was used in Miami Vice...

    The collision Course EP is THE essential driving / going out soundtrack...
    They used it in Miami vice for a reason!

    Given that I could never really pick 'one' track (I'd waste the rest of my life trying to decide) so I'll take your lead...

    Ben Sage - All About You (particularly the remix that sounds like a quick Hybrid tune) - it's a DnB version of an old Tracy Spencer track and is absolutely fantastic. Easily my favourite drum n bass track of all time*

    Regards,

    Rob.

    EDIT: *but then there is RAM Trilogy - No Reality, or for the cheesey-jumper in me Warhead, but I'm not going to get stuck with this so I'll stick with the Ben Sage number!
