We've already talked about the best driving music, but what about the best songs about the cars themselves?

Let's kick things off with a little bit of The Boss talkin' about Cadillac (with cameos by James Dean and Burt Reynolds)

Of course there are others I can think of off the top of my head, but I'll give you guys a chance to post your favorites.

Don't read this until you've posted your first video:

Supposedly it was written about an old Triumph roadster.

Although the video shows them driving a Toyota MR2 (with a body kit) the lyrics (albeit cryptically) are most likely referring to a 1985 Ferrari 328 GTB. :D

Mercury Blues - Please note that the song was originally written when a Mercury wasn't just a Ford for old people.

Ok, well, maybe not the best car song, but it has the word 'car' in the title and I like it anyways :p

Can't find the video, but 'Jesus Built My Hot Rod' by Ministry is definitely up there as far as all time cool car themed songs go.

Well...it's not really about a car at all... but it says it over and over in the song even if it's just a metaphor for something else...

That and Prince is freaking awesome.

Who else could tell a girl she's a skank in such an awesome way as this song?

Not about cars per-se but cars are mentioned in the song...
