A fun question for the weekend.

What is your best music track(s) to play when you're cruising or taking off from a stop?

OK, I know everybody has at least one.

I have a few:

If I am doing under 40 MPH : AJA/Steely Dan, Smooth/Santana, FM/Steely Dan

If I am taking off with an open road in front of me (MPH Unknown): (Da Le) Yaleo/Santana
Migra/Santana, Bring It On/Seal, and many more...

I enjoy all of the above, and listen to XM. But in a classic cruiser I am more into Gershwin and Rhapsody in Blue with the full effect of the Bose system, but that is Hard Top, smooth road ( no concrete whine ) and no bluetooth cell phone disruption!
