That's what music does for your motoring - ever since someone Hillman fitted a radio, quaintly titled the Melody Minx, to one of their cars back in the Thirties stereos have been lifting the moods of drivers ever since. So what, pop pickers, is the single best bit of petrolhead music ever recorded?
Music, of course, is even more divisive than cars themselves are, so from the starting grid this is going to be an entirely subjective thing - I, for example, struggle to understand the appeal of N-Dubz, but I appreciate a lot of other people do. It's also true that, in the same way white wine goes with fish, some music and some cars just belong together, for all sorts of boring cultural reasons that belong in supplements in The Sunday Telegraph. What I'm after is music of the particularly petrolhead variety - tunes which just go with chewing up a winding bit of road in a great car.
In a post last week I pointed out I'm a Fleetwood Mac fan, and I think there's an argument to say a certain Anglo-American rock band's biggest seller is the best bit of petrolhead pop ever recorded. For starters it's got The Chain on it - the de facto Formula One theme music since the dawn of time - but it's also packed with catchy melodies and lyrics which ostensibly cover the traumas of dumping someone but in fact seem like mantras for thrill-seeking motorists. Don't stop, you can go your own way!
Disagreements from N-Dubz fans to the usual address, please.
