Wow, this thread stretches all the way from 2004! I've randomly read a bunch of posts, all very interesting choices.

My usual favourite is any Kishore Kumar compilation, I feel that they are timeless treasures.

But my current favourite is a personal selection from MTV's Coke Studio, which is much like MTV Unplugged, but by Pakistani Artists. Some beautiful renditions from this include Toomba, Dastaan E Ishq, Bari Barsi & Husn E Haqiqi.

I know most of you'll wouldn't have heard them, but just search on You Tube for coke studio and you could be hooked.

Oh and the Indian version of Coke Studio starts this week on MTV, if it's anything close to the original, it's going to be a super hit!

It's raining, and what better songs to accompany you on a drive than these 2?

I would make do with playing songs off my mobile phones on loudspeaker when I shuttled between Pune and Mumbai in my humble '07 Alto Lxi. For some strange reasons which I am not sure about even after all these years, I never got an aftermarket stereo. But with the SX4, it has been a 'rocking' time.
Prefer soft music over loud on most days.Instrumentals have always had a special place in my heart. Among my favorites:
comptine d'un autre été from the Amelie soundtrack and
Yumeji's Theme from the soundtrack of that beautiful movie "In The Mood For Love"
Enjoy The Ride and Gained the world - both from Morcheeba are also among my favorites

For days when adrenaline is called for I do have some choice ones:

Fuel - Metallica
Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
Feel Good Inc - Gorillaz (not everybody's choice for a "pump up" song )

These are the ones that come to mind right now, probably because they are on my playlist as of now and hence I listen to them pretty regularly
