    I usually make sure that I have adequate song collection during my highway drive. Right from Ilayaraja to G.V. Prakash. But, always end up with not concentrating on the songs while driving on highway. Its always the drive which I enjoyed the most than the songs. But, I enjoy hearing good music while commuting in the city. :)

    I avoid new songs because of less stress on meaning. Old one whether it is Hindi Tamil or Malayalam are my favourites.
    A meaningful lyrics complement a meaningful drive. Some time we also get the romantic touch from car when it perform few curves and in some rare occasions the songs will also complement it. For example I have first heard the song "Jho bat tuj me" from Tajmahal(in Punto) when I was driving punto first time in Ghat section. I never experienced the brilliance of that level before and the song was ideal for that moment for its performance. The car offered much more than its stylish look.

  5. Thanks Hari. Nice to see someone liking my choice which is very rarest for me. My family, friends, colleagues nobody liked this that much. They said it is OK nothing wonderfull. So whenever I travel I dont get chances to listen to this kinda music, because everybody says Play latest movie songs. Though I like listening to western albums, tamil/hindi songs these kinda music makes me feel special to have such a taste. I will surely share my choice of music in this thread.

    Ilayaraja songs are a must on long drive. In city driving most of times enjoys the songs of Chandrababu and A.R. Rahman.

    I listen to (believe it or not), West African music. Dont know if some of the music lovers on the forum have had a chance to listen. Here's a sample selection of a vast collection . Musical greats like Habib Koite, Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate..Malian music has peculiar similarity to indian music.
    Habib Koite Sirata - YouTube
    Habib Koité - Takamba - YouTube
    Habib Koite & Bamada - Mara Kaso - YouTube
    Toumani Diabaté - Cantelowes live at El Real Alcazar - YouTube

    And then when I get bored I get back to Joshua Tree (U2) and finally, my Ragas Todi, Sarang, Multani, Marwa and Yaman for a change. (Vocal and Instrumental).

    Bollywood favs, although I have neatly arranged it decade-wise in that usb drive tucked into the Linea glovebox, are rare selection on long drives.
