What cd's are currently in your car?

Asked by sakura (8267points) January 30th, 2011

Just being, nosey, I recently loaded my new car up with cd’s and had a hard time choosing 6. Just wondering what lurks in your car cd player, and why did you choose those particular cd’s?

I finally settled on

Guns and Roses – Appetite for destruction

Alanis Morrissette – Jagged Little Pill

Matchbox Twenty – Exile in Mainsteam and Mad Season

Babybird – Ugly Beautiful (has my fav song on)

Counting Crows – Hard Candy

ps I’m from the UK – I’m not sure if where you come from makes any difference to your music choice…I’ll guess we will see!!

pps – I’ve linked to a bit of info, certain songs for those that may not have heard of said bands… feel free to do this as well :)

Funny you ask, I just swapped out the CDs I was carrying around for few months, so I happen to know the answer today. I have a six CD player, too.

Los Lobos РLa Pistola y El Corazón
Anita O’Day – Sings the Winners
Green Day – Dookie
Miles Davis – Kind of Blue
The Clash – London Calling (my favorite songs from a 2-disk set)
Neko Case – Middle Cyclone

Hey a whole heap of jellies, I’ve never met before, how exciting, just goes to show I should try adding different topics when I ask a question!!

Zero, considering I don’t currently own one. Not to mention the vehicles I do drive don’t even have stereos in them. Yep, I’m just awesome like that I guess.

My CD player is chocked but I plug my MP3 player into it and it is loaded with everything. A lot of Steve Morse, Nora, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Frank Marino, Howlin Wolf, Buddy Guy, Freddie King…..too much to list

I have a 6 CD-changer and currently there is: my friend’s mix CD, my mix CD #39, my mix CD #38, Glazunov symphonies, Schubert symphonies, and a rap mix CD.

I also plug my iPhone into my car, but my iPhone has no classical music on it; I reserve that for CDs.

Counting Crows – August and Everything After
OK Go – Of the Blue Colour of the Sky
Street Sweeper Social Club – Street Sweeper Social Club
Street Sweeper Social Club – Ghetto Blaster
Nine Inch Nails – The Fragile
Stroke 9 – Nasty Little Thoughts

(Links are to various songs of the albums named.)

The collection wasn’t chosen so much as just accumulated as my wife and I wanted to listen to various things. We tend not to bring CDs in from the car until we’re running out of space for them in the door pockets.

My cd player broke because it has no more sound.$60 dollars going down the toilet. Oh no! But i have an ipod so im happy

Oh man, what a great question. I haven’t bought a CD since sometime before I graduated college. I’m 27, so that means I’m stuck with the best of the mid-aughts decade, as well as some random carryover from high school. I have two CD cases in my car. One is filled with the jamband show downloads I was obsessed with in college. The other is filled with more random stuff. Without taking a direct look, I can tell you that Meatloaf’s “Bat out of Hell” album is situated next to Belle and Sebastian’s “Dear Catastropher Waitress.” There’s also a Rusted Root album from the late 90s, some older Dylan bootlegs and about half a dozen Putumayo discs that I ‘took’ from my company’s retail store. I’m pretty sure I have “Turkish Groove” in the CD player right now, though it’s been weeks since I’ve listened.

I sometimes take my Sony Walkman with me when I am out cycling. Does that count?

Steve Miller Band’s Greatest Hits

It got left behind when I took my cd case into the house.

cubozoa's avatar

The Jim Jones Review, Pulled Apart By Horses and Dinosaur Pile-Up. I generally prefer loud shouty music in the car. I’m not sure how that reflects on my driving!

Seelix's avatar

Only a few that got left behind when I got my iPod transmitter.

Reunion Tour by The Weakerthans is the only one I can think of (I don’t drive much).

I’m always changing what music I have in the car. At the moment, I think I’ve got Elbow, Coldplay, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and a mixed chart cd

The White Stripes – Elephant
B.B. King & Eric Clapton – Ridin’ With the King
Audioslave – Revelations

DeanV's avatar

Noisia – Noisia
Shpongle – Ineffible Mysteries from Shpongleland
The Glitch Mob – Drink The Sea
The Chemical Brothers – Come With Us
Pendulum – Immersion

Those are the ones on heavy rotation right now. But there’s a lot more, mostly consisting of a couple rock CDs and more electronic and indie.

Jeremycw1's avatar

@dverhey Pendulum’s song “Set Me on Fire” is my favorite :) very good pick!

jerv's avatar

I still have the original stock radio in my ‘85 ‘yota and they didn’t have CD players back then! That said, I do listen to music. I slide an adapter into my cassette player and pipe in MP3s from my Droid X.

I don’t normally go for full albums, so most of my collection is random singles. The notable exceptions are:

Lost Horizons – Abney Park
The WallYou know damn well who does this one!
Kings of Sleep – Stuart Hamm

CaptainHarley's avatar

Don’t have a car. Got a Harley. Too many CDs in the saddle bag to remember them all, but everything from ManOWar to John Phillip Sousa, from Joan Jett to Armen van Buren. : ))

jerv's avatar

@CaptainHarley No Wagner? I can just see you putting across Texas to Flight of the Valkyries.

CaptainHarley's avatar

@jerv LOL! Yep! Got several classical CDs in there too, as well as bagpipes, etc. I don’t really like Flight of the Valkyries though. Sorry to disappoint! ; ))
