Top 10 Car-eoke songs* for Ausculture Jess

*That is, songs sung at the top of ur lungs whilst driving, preferably (a) alone and (b) with windows up.**

10) Air Supply "Without You" - Booming lows and shrilling highs; pain, angst and overly dramatic hand gestures.

9) Nelly Furtado "Childhood Dreams" - Pump up the bass for the church organs, yo.

8) Kanye West "Golddigger" - Only dubbing "Broke - br - Broke" over the N-bomb whilst twisting neck frantically (Wigger? Moi?!)

7) Bjork "Mouths Crade" - I can act out climing a teeths ladder WHILST racing that Datsun (DATSUN).

6) Britney Spears "Toxic" - It's her own fault for race-driving (albeit it a bike) in the filmclip.

5) Snoop Dogg "Beautiful" - Not for singing with dogs in the car (high-pitched-ness involved!)

4) "Rent: The Musical" 2 CD Soundtrack - technically a musical is just one big song, right? Right? RIGHT?!

3) Korn "Clown" - mostly for the "four? four. four? .... Ern"

2) Destiny's Child "Lose My Breath" - try not to pass out whilst doing The Huff.

1) The Sundays "Summertime" - only because I'm a showoff on the inside n think do it well (What?! I needed to appeal to the alternatives and dilute out my Pop'n'R'n'B taste)

**Prone to changing bi-monthly

"...and (b) with windows up"

No no, the best way to sing at the top of your lungs is with the windows DOWN! And you need to sing even louder when you get to a red light and there's a car next to you also with their windows down. It can make for some very entertaining random stranger car-to-car conversation.

Hrm - seeing as you're a singer and all, it might work that way for you - my singing out the window to randoms usually ends in me losing the race of the lights.
