Do you have to hate the Eagles to like CCR?

Possibly the perfect rock and roll song.
Heh. Good one, but reminds of the girl singing along on the way to her doom in Silence of the Lambs.

Not singing along, just cranked up to full volume, Megadeth's Hangar 18, the long version.
(Dave Mustaine is an idiot, by the way, I freely admit that.)

Far too many to list, but I do have a recent favorite. The viral video of the Polish Les Mis cast flash-mobbing a mall with One Day More inspired me to buy their production's soundtrack.

People are really confused when you pull up next to them at a stoplight belting out Słuchaj Kiedy Spiewa Lud at them.

First off, thank you for the laugh, and the very cute paramedics who arrived on scene when my family couldn't figure out WHY I was rolling on the floor gasping for air after reading this. Second thank you for the warning, I will never drive with my cell phone in my pocket again. Cannot risk having my boss, or people I work with, or my son's school hear me belting out "Me and My Arrow" by Harry Nilsson at full volume.

Edited to add my family pointed out that for the last two weeks anyone butt dialed would be hearing me sing "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" by Wings. Oh the shame.

Somebody that I used to know- Gotye
Honky Tonk Women- The Rolling Stones
Gimme Shelter-the Rolling Stones
Thunderstruck-AC/DC, oh hell, practically anything by AC/DC
Money for Nothing-Dire Straits, despite the fact I am a chick

That's just a few. I sing along to the radio and my iPod since I spend so much time driving each week for my work.
