Start Your Engines
There isn’t really much of a musical theme here. In fact, I think it may well be the first time Manowar and Billy Ocean have appeared on the same playlist. However, every one of these tracks opens with the sound of a car starting. That’s all.
Admittedly I needed a little help to find 10 tracks that specifically included a car starting and not just some miscellaneous engine noise (it’s important to have standards). I managed to completely forget the intro to Songs for the Death, and for some reason I have never listened to Kraftwerk properly so it came to suggestions via twitter to include these.
I’ve had this knocking around in my mind for absolutely years and it was Roxy Music, Primus and Jamiroquai that really got the ball rolling.
