Car songs? - Vin {P}
Following on from an earlier "driving songs" thread and the "Classic - Pah!" thread, I remember that the Hillman Avenger was immortalised in a song by an ex Steeley Span member: See

www.geocities.com/mccormick_cj/index.html

Mini Metro - in the Toy Dolls version of "Drivin' along in my Automobile", titled "Drivin' along in my Mini Metro"

Cortina - "Nina, I've got a Cortina" (or is that just in my imagination; I can't find it on the web)

Any more British cars so honoured?

I like driving in my car, it's not quite a Jaguar! Madness.

Got a feel for my Boy-Racer Rover - Queen.


... and what about Booker T and the MGs?

The Austin Ambassador Y Reg
Is a car that I revere

It just happens to be that year

Brilliant - What other country ? (What has R4 done to the Shuttleworths though) Brings back memories of a two month "lecture tour" of the states back in 95. Picked up my car from the Airport turned the radio on and the Shuttleworths were what was on at the time...the first feeling of homesickness in nine weeks overwhelemed me.

'Wish I had a grey Cortina,
Whiplash aerial, racing trim...' - Tom Robinson

'Had a love affair with Nina,
In the back of my Cortina,
A seasoned-up hyena
Could not have been more obscener' etc etc - Billericay Dickie - Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

That must be the one!

...and I'm sure Kate Bush's "Man With a Child in his Eyes" includes the line - "He's always lost in his Horizon" - but I could have misheard.

Elastica's "Car Song":
"let's go siesta/in your ford fiesta"
and
"in every little honda/there may lurk a peter fonda"

But the funniest line in the song has to be
"every shining bonnet/makes me think of my back on it"

I recall from my youth a song that went
"The Gypsy Rover came over the hill..."
Now, I can't remember much more than that, but I'm sure it included verses on "towing a trailer full of tarmac", "stole the slates off the roof", and "peddaled white heather while their kids stole your wallet".

Billy Bragg did a Barking version of Bob Dylan's 'From a Buick 8' called [IIRC] 'From a Vauxhall Velux' - can't remember the lyrics I'm afraid....

Marc Cohn did a fantastic track called Silver Thunderbird, from his debut album..

"Well you could hardly even see him in all of that chrome,
The man with the plan and the pocket comb,
But every night it carried him home..

You can keep your El Dorado,
Foreign cars are absurd,
Me? I wanna go down
In a Silver Thunderbird.."

Great stuff....

Oh, and don't forget 'Allo John, got a new motor?' by Alexei Sayle.. ;)
