    Hi all,
    After driving for almost a year, some 55.000 km, in my S and listening to a lot of music, there is one piece of music that to me seems to go perfect with the feeling I get when driving my S.
    I'd like to share that with you, so hereby my nomination for the no. 1 Tesla music!
    You will find it in Rdio: Klaus Badelt - I don't belong here.
    Really, the ICES around you will seem to float away in history.
    Try it. This music will give you goose-bumps, guaranteed.
    Enjoy! Maarten

    I need to check that one out, but this one of my favorites when rolling down the GW Parkway at night headed in to Washington is Electroman by Benny Benassi feat. T-Pain.

    I would have used segments of this music for the launch of the "D".

    [Chorus:]
    I am electro man, man, man, man,
    You are electro girl, girl, girl, girl.
    Electricity! Come on!
    Electricity! Come on!
    In the darkness we light up the sky,
    I'm talking sparking,
    So the darkness can die!
    There's no opponents, can't temperate she and I
    We're just a part of one of those secrets societies.
    Oh, oh, tell me baby, baby can you bare my e..my electricity!
    I can really tell you what you really wanna be,
    Come get with me!
    Oh, oh, take my hand!
    till the e, end
    .. do you know who I am?
    [Chorus:]
    I am electro man, man, man, man!
    You are electro girl, girl, girl, girl!
    Electricity! Come on!
    Electricity! Come on!
    In the daylight, we wait for the night!
    bring them fires
    stay away from the fight!
    I'll make you blood drained
    Count it girl, I'll suck you dry,
    give that neck some penetration,
    No you cannot die!
    Oh, oh! Aha, aha!
    Turn around, break it down, check it now!
    It's going down!
    [Chorus: (x2)]
    I am electro man, man, man, man!
    You are electro girl, girl, girl, girl!
    Electricity! Come on!
    Electricity! Come on

    Great stuff! Loved Electroman.

    Morten, I'm also a big film music buff. Some of my absolute favourites (both from submarine movies! Allthough I believe Zimmer reused a lot of it for "The Rock" with Connery and Cage):

    I named my car "Blue Persuasion", and my name is Christal, so it's Christal's Blue Persuasion. I have always liked the song, but the lyrics can be applied to the increased adoption of EVs, I think:

    "Crystal Blue Persuasion"

    Look over yonder
    What do you see?
    The sun is a-risin'
    Most definitely
    A new day is comin', whoo-hoo
    People are changin'
    Ain't it beautiful, whoo-hoo
    Crystal blue persuasion

    Better get ready
    Gonna see the light
    Love, love is the answer, whoo-hoo
    And that's all right
    So don't you give up now, whoo-hoo
    It's so easy to find
    Just look to your soul (Look to your soul)
    And open your mind

    Crystal blue persuasion
    Mm-hmm
    It's a new vibration
    Crystal blue persuasion
    Crystal
    Blue persuasion

    Maybe tomorrow
    When he looks down
    On every green field, whoo-hoo
    And every town
    All of his children
    In every nation
    There'll be peace and good
    Brotherhood
    Crystal blue persuasion
    Yeah

    Crystal blue persuasion, aha
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha (Oh)
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha
    Crystal blue persuasion, aha

    Mine is by Dirty South - Phasing

    "We are not, going home.
    We're phasing, a million miles away"

    Dirty South feat Rudy (Official Video) - YouTube

    Throw this on while driving down the 5-south towards San Diego in the middle of the night, feels like you're flying through a vast empty space (freeway)

    "All I Wanted Was A Car" by Brad Paisley

    This song reminds me of how hard and long I've worked to get this car.

    I always play "Low Rider" from War as the first song on every new car. Just like the scene from Gone in 60 Seconds.
