Those of you who drive cars (especially those who live in America...sorry my European friends but for all the great things you have, you've got nothing on America when it comes to driving, roads, regulations, and size and diversity), what are some of the best tracks to drive to?

100. The Dream (Total Recall)

Are we talking frantic, heavy traffic or leisure traveling music?

Windy road, beautiful view [which you don't have to leisurely enjoy], no one but you on the road. How you drive is up to you. If you're in Montana, no rural speed limit. :D

Basically, if you had your own personal track, and you could drive anyway you want with any track you'd like.

That changes it quite a bit. My choices are perfect for Rockville Pike traffic, though I'm sure none of you know what that's like.

100. The Dream (Total Recall)

This isn't a reference to an old Castrol GTX Motor Oil commercial on British tv is it? It was superb, because of it's use of that music.

68. Battle Plans from Silvestri's Predator.

90. Journey To Fort Sedgewick - Dances With Wolves

That would be my first choice.

Horner and Williams Americana strike me as a good choices for these pastoral stuff.

61. Coming Home from the Sea - The Perfect Storm.

60. Reading the Letters - The Spitfire Grill

59. Stanley & Iris - Stanley & Iris

58. The Ancestral Home - The River

Several tracks by Georges Delerue.....probably the most prolific composer of pretty, beautiful music for film.

It was a rhetorical question, of course they're the same. Now if he was asking the difference between two tracks like "Faking the Code" and "Shuttle Tydirium Approaches Endor," there'd be a difference; the latter has a single brass solo sing out early in the piece that is absent from "Faking the Code." Not sure why, not really interested enough to care, just know there is a difference.

What number is this, Jim?

7A.

OK... don't get excited, man. Just cause I'm short, I know.

21. Overture/The Big Race & Breakfast Machine. The first one makes me feel like my car is a bike, driving through Paris, and the second one is just plain nostalgic fun.
