Usually when I'm driving calmly, I listen to Hybrid- Soundsystem and Lifehouse

but when things start heating up and when I see no car on the road except mine, my choice of song is NFSIII's intro song!

though its short but damn it gets the adrenaline pumping!

driving in the city, anything will do, but on long drives i avoid slow and melodious songs - these put me to sleep and we don't want that happening, now do we?

some of my favourites:
Metallica - Sad but True/ St. Anger
Dire Straits - Walk of Live/ Sultan's of Swing/ Tunnel of Love/ Heavy Fuel/ Romeo and Juliet
Bryan Adams - Summer of '69/ On a day like today/ Best of me
50cent - In da Club
Deep Purple - Highway star/ Smoke on the water
Robbie Williams - Feel/ Hot Fudge/ Better Man
Eagles - Hotel California
Police - De do do do/ King of Pain/ Spirits in the Material World
Manowar - Warriors of the world united

last, but never the least

Enigma - Sadeness

My current favourite is:

"Jaoon tore charan kamal par vari" from the film Sur Sangam; sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Pt. Rajan Mishra. Last fortnight I discovered this song, tucked away on my USB stick, during my drive to Udupi from Bangalore. Since then I have been listening to this song again and again while driving.

Listening to music keeps me calm when I'm stuck in traffic, which is most of the time in a city like ours. Usually music by classical maestros like Dvorak, Debussy and Tchaikovsky are the ones that I find most peaceful. And let me just say that having a 6 CD changer is the most handy thing ever, since I can just put my favourites in without scrounging for changes while I'm on the road.

But whenever I'm driving on a long stretch of relatively empty road - a pleasure I allow myself at least once in a month - I like the smooth tones of jazz by artistes like Miles Davis, John Coltrane The Seatbelts, Wudasse Ethio etc.

For me, it differs a bit by the terrain that I am driving in.

If I am in the hills: Dillagi by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
If its raining: Boondon se baatein, by Asha Bhosle for movie Takshak
If its a straight smooth drive: Peppy Kishore numbers sung for Amitabh

In Bangalore traffic: calming Mantra chants to help keep cool!
