I gotta say that period music sounds best. The Who Live at Leeds is good. Anything from Zappa pre- '74, most notably Apostrophe, One Size Fits All.

For me, it's the overture from "Tommy" (The Who) and twin cams between 5-6000 rpm.

Oh my friends, where is your Italian spirit????

The first time I took my spider out for a drive, I popped in a CD of Louis Prima and The Wildest. It was perfect for an August evening full moon cruise. The next night, I met a woman for a first date--we just met for a glass of wine. On the way out of the restaurant (Italian) she saw the spider and said "let's go for a ride". Louis was still in the player. We chased the full moon for 3 hours. We're still dating. She gets flowers on every full moon.

Another great choice? Carlo Aonzo and Beppe Gambetta. They have a couple of CDs out.

Other great soundtracks for winding out on a country road (though not Italian) include Les Primitifs du Futur, Jo Privat, and Astor Piazzolla.

I keep my music on an iPod. It is wonderfully skip-free, and I don't have to worry about someone walking off with my CDs. It just slips into my pocket when I park the car.

Warmed my heart to read that. Good stuff, Tim!!

For me? When I'm in the zone, music is nothing but a distraction. On a long, boring interstate drive though I suppose a radio might have it's uses.

Well, I did mention I Pagliacci . . .

At one time I downloaded as many versions as I could find of "Tu vuo fa l'Americano." It's amazing how many there are, from Renato Carusone to Sophia Loren, to the "Talented Mr. Ripley" crew, to Brian Setzer. Never did find the Molto Mario version, which is what I was after in the first place.

Stunning! You get points. I wish that was my idea.

I heard that piece at the Premier. Mansfield, MA. Great Woods (Now Tweeter), Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra. Michael Tilson Thomas conducting.

I prefer Miester Ekhard and Quacky from Harmonelhere (Spelling) or the Chairman Dances.

I've been know to blast a bit of Nixon in China.

I love John Adam's music.

I should have mentioned that for Italian music, Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior on the Sopranos) has a nice CD called Ungrateful Heart.

Boston - Summer driving
Anything acoustic/slow (Spill Canvas, etc.) - fall
instrumental and soundtrack (Joe Satriani, Gladiator etc.) - Winter
Albums that were released the past year - spring

Of course it depends on my mood...If I'm feeling crazy I may pop in some Cake or NOFX...or Jimi Hendrix even

And if I'm up for some relaxation, turn off the stereo and listen to the steady hum of my exhaust...best stress reliever ever

/edit: If youre looking for italian music, Renato Zero has some good older hits (he is a little wierd looking tho, kinda like Michael Jackson but with better music)...Subsonica is a newish rock band (their hit in Italy last year was "Abitudine") and Vasco Rossi is not as new but is still a rock band worthy of mention..."Buoni o Cattivi" made the charts recently from him

1987 Red Spider Veloce
counting down the days 'til I can do some body work...

My choice for in-car music: XM satellite radio. By far the coolest invention of the last 30 years. Want to listen to 5 hours of reggae while driving up to the bay area? Done. Feel like a little electronica on a Friday night? Cool. Some B-sides from the 60's and 70's? Yeah baby! And no commercials!

I do have a nice mix of CD's for when I just have to hear a song---Aerosmith, Afghan Whigs, Go! Team, Hooverphonic...


Each Alfa has an antenna kit, and I've one at home too---the unit just plugs in to all of them and I take it with me. It's about the size of an old cassette playing walkman.

Between the XM (60s Decade) blasting away, the GPS yelling at me to turn, the wind whistling overhead and the engine screaming at me to shift I'm in sound nirvana...
