Any good songs to play during a launch?

    I was inspired by Songs that sound REALLY GOOD on the Model X Premium sound system and it got me thinking. We're picking up our X in mid/late September and I was preparing some FLAC files to test out the audio system and made me think about what kind of songs might enhance a launch experience as well.

    If I have a car full of people and want to give them the gift of the Tesla Grin, are there any good songs to play to enhance the already ludicrous experience?

    So far I've only come up with Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op.30 (Einleitung) and although not a song, perhaps the THX sound.

    Any other ideas, classical or modern that could build anticipation and complement the acceleration?

    The opening theme to Thuderbirds - especially one with the "5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Thunderbirds are go!" bit at the beginning.

    The part of the Space Balls movie where they go to ludicrous speed.

    Awesome ideas. I might have to mix them up a little bit and also add an Apollo or SpaceX countdown launch into the rotation.

    Higher and Higher--Moody Blues

    Blasting, billowing, bursting forth
    With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes
    Man with his flaming pyre
    Has conquered the wayward breezes

    Climbing to tranquility
    Far above the cloud
    Conceiving the heavens
    Clear of misty shroud

    Higher and higher
    Now we've learned to play with fire
    Go higher and higher and higher

    Vast vision must improve our sight
    Perhaps at last we'll see and end
    To our homes endless blight
    And the beginning of the free

    Climb to tranquility
    Finding its real worth
    Conceiving the heavens
    Florishing on earth

    Higher and higher
    Now we've learned to play with fire
    Go higher and higher and higher
