I keep all the latest tracks with me on my pen drive and the olden ones as mp3's on my cd holder.

But Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz would be my front runner. And the lyrics below

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Next time you're stuck in traffic, I recommend you tune to there tracks. They calm you down like nothing else!

Last one year I prefer trance music while driving especially from Armin van Buuren and DJ Tiesto.
The one by christian burns and armin really bring back whole energy to me

I found my pod today after a long time.
Connected it in the car, and right about when i hit the expressway, i was party to the MOST enjoyable go-go song so far!.
"free speech for the dumb".
Try it.
Hard core riffs, and only one single line of lyric(the title with a nd expletive shown here and there)!!
Really really cool.
no mumbling of forgotten lyrics!

I've got lots of Phil Collins on my phone. I play some Genesis when I'm driving. Off late, I've been listening to a lot of Floyd and Porcupine Tree, and the days I can't decide, I play The Doors.

Hey suhaas307,

Was just kidding. No offense or criticism at all. Get carried away when you meet like-minded persons, right? Pls keep posting more.

Did I miss a joke?

It's good to meet like-minded people, alright. After-all, Team-BHP is full of 'em!

I recently discovered a very nice track by the Gorillaz. It's called 'Rhinestone Eyes'. Very catchy tune.
