    With a number of us heading south to Italy,Southern France, Spain, in the summer, I have put a list together of some appropriate music to play:

    So Imagine, your driving from Italy heading along the coast road to the french riviera,the tops down, the zed is running like a dream, the road runs along the sea, twisting and turning as you go and they are as smooth as silk, the sun is shinning, and your next stop is Monte Carlo, everything is good in the world.

    And on your sound system your playing:

    We have all the time in the world - Louise Armstrong
    Wonderful World - Louise Armstrong
    The Girl from Ipanema
    Music too watch girls go by - Andy Williams
    Crockett's Theme – Miami Vice
    Albatross – Fleetwood mac
    From Russia with Love – Matt Monroe
    That’s Amore – Dean Martin
    It’s a big wide wonderful world – Dean Martin
    Far Away Places – Perry Como
    It’s Impossible – Perry Como
    Moon River – Perry Como
    Wind Beneath My Wings – Bette Midler
    You only live twice – Nancy Sinatra
    Je t'aime
    Embrasse Moi
    Funiculi, Funicula
    On Days Like These - Matt Munroe


    Can you add to the list?
    Keeping it smooth and relaxing and appropriate (I love Mustang Sally but dont feel it appropriate for driving in the french riviera.)

    The classics never go away b-( .

    My music tastes range from the classics through to Lady GaGa. Except I hate Jazz.

    :coolsteer) how about "riding along in my automobile" by Chuck Berry I really couldn't recommend "Little Nash Rambler" and of course I can't understand why no one is mentioning "Convoy" =)) :coolsteer)
