Default Mini cruising & driving Music

I mean, really though, most days when driving the mini, I might crank up the drum n bass or dub step and I am good.

Electronic music I bump when cruising:
Evolution (feat. Darrison) - The Prototypes - (My absolute fav!)
Biology (feat. Cat Knight) - Matrix & Futurebound
Gold Rush (feat. Brookes Brothers) - Danny Byrd

…just to name a few


But some days, I might even put on some soundtrack / classical music when cruising as well:
Glory - James Horner
Tron Legacy - Daft Punk
The Lark Ascending - Vaughan Williams (Performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra)
Lord of the Rings Return of the King Soundtrack - Minas Tirith (really gets the blood pumping cranked up loud)
Transformers 1 Soundtrack - Steve Jablonsky version NOT the rock stuff


What do you guys like to cruise to?? Would be interesting to hear

I've gotten in the habit of just listening to the engine when driving.

Lately though I've had some early Bad Religion playing

The best part about BR is that their newer stuff is just as raw as the older stuff. Not a dubstep fan here. Ipod on shuffle (lots of punk, ska, and hip-hop) or like mentioned, just listening to the engine. The R53 makes a lot of very interesting noises while being driven; helps me enjoy the experience a bit more.

These are my favorite songs to listen to when I want just a bit of background noise to my driving and my MINI's sounds.

One of These Mornings - Patti LaBelle/Moby

Sinnerman - Nina Simone & Felix Da Housecat

Bloodstream - Stateless

Song to the Siren - John Frusciante (if you're a Format67 fan you know where this is from)

Just a few that I tend to put on/not skip over when I'm in spirited driving mode...

Mr. Brightside - The Killers

Phantom Limb - The Shins

Lots from Death Cab for Cutie,

And just about anything from ATB.

I am gonna just turn down the tunes and try this one day. I'm sure it'll be music to my ears as well! But I can't let go of the adrenaline rush from DnB though

I'm officially an "Old Guy" now, so I have to agree with Bob, but have to add:

Bon Jovi - Dead or Aluve
Thin Lizzy - Cowboy Song
Foreigner - Rev On The Red Line

Although, I have to admit it's been mostly nothing and all engine - S/C noise since the swap, I love the whistle it makes.

In a classic the radio only works when Lord Lucas deems it fitting. That coupled with a loud exhaust, and a passenger with sensitive ears means I can only crank it up on occasion, but when I do, it's dos Equis...
Seriously, if I can have drive music, it's all over the map:
Rusted Root: When I Woke

Skrillex f. Sira: Bangarang

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Gimme Three Steps

Johny Cash: Hurt, One Piece at a Time

Prodigy: Breathe, Smack My (female dog) Up

Jamiroquai: High Times, Traveling Without Moving

Jethro Tull: Aqualung

Ludacris: Move B!###

Disturbed: Down With the Sickness

and of course : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIechPy5ycc
