Weekend Playlist: Cars

Something to listen to when parking with a loved one...

Shameless is back Saturday 20 November at Iguana Bar in Sydney, and this month they're playing their unique mix of 'music you wish you didn't love' with a car theme. To help explain the allure of music we long ago (deliberately) forgot, they've put together a list of the ten hottest car songs that they'll be subjecting us to on Saturday night.

10. Tom Cochrane   'Life is a Highway'

Musically, this is probably only top 20, but Tom's hair pushed it into the top ten.

9. Natalie Cole   'Pink Cadillac'

Originally by Bruce Springsteen but made most famous by Natalie, this thinly veiled pudendal metaphor has also recently been added to Melissa Etheridge's live sets. Ahem.

8. Billy Ocean   'Get Out of My Dreams, Get into My Car'

Reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Black Singles Chart. More importantly, there was once a chart with that name.

7. The Beach Boys   'I Get Around'

Featuring a fresh faced, mentally sound Brian Wilson, who was later driven insane by his daughter Carnie Wilson's infamous nude Playboy spread.

6. Eagles   'Take it Easy'

This Surry Hills four-piece have earned rave reviews for their energetic no-wave sets.

5. Fine Young Cannibals   'She Drives Me Crazy'

Originally a misogynistic diatribe about female drivers ("She Drives, Me Crazy") the comma was removed at the request of F.Y.C.'s label and a hit was born.

4. Tracy Chapman   'Fast Car'

Fun fact: Gabrielle's 'Dreams' originally sampled this track, until it was removed because of threats from Tracy's lawyers. How cute are lawyers? Ummm, Dylan McDermott! Hello!

3. Cyndi Lauper/Roy Orbison   'I Drove All Night'

One of those rare moments where a cover surpasses the original. Kind of like Celine Dion and Anastasia's version of AC/DC's 'You Shook Me All Night Long'.

2. The Cars   'Drive'

Who says you can't play ballads in nightclubs? If it was good enough for Paulina Porizkova, it sure as hell is good enough for you.

1. Prince   'Little Red Corvette'

What is it about cars and genital metaphors? Although 2010 Prince would probably swear that the Corvette is a metaphor for the evil United Nations, which is driving civilization "much too fast" towards the Armageddon, after which point Earth will be transformed into Heaven, which was established in 1914 (yes, Prince actually believes this).
