Most inspiring street racing song?

Any music that gets you guys inspired to think about driving your cars? Ever since I got my new M4 (6MT, Vert) the song Red Barchetta from Rush keeps coming to mind for me - especially since it feels like the car is an "end of an era" as driver assisted, automatic, hybrid/plug-in-hybrid cars take more and more market share (aka "Gleaming Alloy Air Cars").

I can so easily see an M video set to this soundtrack. I envision the angel eyes peering out of the broken down barn at 2:18. Starts rolling out from there - driving through a Washington State valley starting at 2:48. Easy driving at first, top down. Sweeping drone shots over the valley as the car drives pretty reasonably for the next minute or so. At 4:00 the car is actively looking for cops before it stomps on the gas - which it does at 4:11. Pretty quickly afterwards (4:22) it's picked up by a pair of cops in "gleaming alloy air cars". For the finale I envision the M drifting around a hairpin turn with tires burning onto a one lane bridge - leaving the modern electric cars behind.

Who knows, I've got the drone, the GoPros and the M (in Yellow). Maybe one day I'll be inspired to put it together.

During football season, on late Sunday afternoons when the roads are empty and the air is cool - I go out in the country and drive. Like Red Barchetta and Yes's ROUNDABOUT during the warm-up phase. Have my own little 'EAU ROUGE' chicane where my stomach just sinks. M235 really makes it memorable.

Depends on my mood. If I'm in the mood to drive fast it's "BT - never gonna come back down" OR "Metric - Gold Guns Girls". Both great driving songs.

Love Metrics and love Gold Guns Girls. Great choice. I'll have to dial that up next time.

Hell. Yes.

Additions for me:

Side Note: I can drive fast to anything...

Ever since I saw this way back when, I knew Blur's Song 2 was a great driving song.... and I needed an M car.
