Inspired by this thread Hilarious and Amazing Police Chase Video, I must pose the question: if you’re in a high speed chase, what tunes are you cranking?
Assume that you would access to any tunes ever, not just what’s in the stolen vehicle.
Personally, I’d go with a smorgasbord:
Master of Puppets, Metallica
Running Down A Dream, Tom Petty
Run Like An Antelope, Phish
Truckin’, Grateful Dead
Take It Easy, The Eagles
Highway To Hell, AC/DC
Ride of the Valkyries, Richard Wagner (I’d totally be thinking of the helo scene in Apocalypse Now)
It’s The End of The World (As We Know It), R.E.M.
Life’s Been Good, Joe Walsh
and if it looks like I’ll get away, I’d wrap it up with
The Abbey Road Medley, The Beatles, neatly timed so that Her Majesty plays just as I pop into the chop shop and the gargage doors slam down behind me, or
Suicide Solution, Ozzy Osbourne, with Randy Rhoads manic solo timed to coincide with my fiery death or fanatical beatdown by LAPD…
(don’t almost all these chases seem to happen in LA)
