With Summer nearly here , and thoughts gravitate to open top cars and fast girls , or is it open top girls and fast cars , well oiled torso , and the sound of willow striking leather -a golfer kicking a tree in the way , now is the time to pump it up and wind it down . So I thought it would be a wheeze to come up with our own ultimate compilation of driving songs . No genre to be ignored , just songs that get you in that certain zen state .

Here is my first offering from the Dutch band Focus - Hocus Pocus . It always puts me in a good place with the the combination of musical brilliance and eccentricity and fun :

Mr Blue Sky - ELO. The ultimate feel good tune!

Or on a classical note, surely the fully-sung (in German, naturally) original version of Wagner's Ritt der Walküren

The ultimate driving song..........


RADAR LOVE -

GOLDEN EARRING.

I've been drivin' all night my hands wet on the wheel,

and there's a voice in my head that guides my heel,

it's my baby callin' saying i need you near,

it's half past four and I'm shifting gear.
