No one hasn't mentioned There is a light that never goes out yet! :eek:

It's the best driving themed song ever written.

I have to admit that TIALTNGO is one of my most often sung songs whilst driving:eek::eek:

Does this mean I have a death wish??? I'm sure its just the sight of so many ten ton trucks that brings this song to mind;)

I actually believe this to be one of the most beautiful love songs ever. I mean what bigger compliment can you pay to someone other than to declare "to die by your side, is such a heavenly way to die"

Damien Dempsey - "Factories" (kind of)

Bruce Springsteen - "Racing In The Streets" (!)
Håkan Hellström - "Jag Har Varit I Alla Städer"
