Music Hits to Inspire Your Car Hire Choice
We often draw inspiration from music, so why not let it influence your car hire choice?
Music is a great inspiration for most of us; it can stir emotion and feeling, but rarely has such a practical impact as to help us choose which car to hire. Artists have been singing about driving and automobiles for decades though, so why not let some of the legends of music guide your hand in the car rental arena?
Pink Cadillac – Bruce Springsteen
Pink – admittedly not to everyone’s aesthetic taste, but if it was good enough for The Boss then it should be good enough for your car hire needs. The song oozes style, as does anyone who has the minerals to turn up to a meeting/event in a pink Cadillac.
Mustang Sally – Wilson Pickett
One of the most famous car songs ever written, the rough and ready edge in Pickett’s voice makes this an R&B classic. The new Ford Mustang, with the slogan “All Legend. No Compromise.” says it all, and is every bit as beefy as the 1965 car Mustang Sally loved to ride.
Mercedes Benz – Janis Joplin
Janis Joplin is one of those tragic artists immortalised for a premature demise which halted a potentially incredible music career. Mercedes Benz rightly deserves its place in music history and remains a fitting ode to an enduring status symbol.
Jaguar – The Who
Any song which contains the lyrics: “Every lovely spot near or far. You can reach them too in your car. Or you might be there now if you own a Jag already,” is pure genius by my book. The song is never likely to be remembered in the same breath as I Can’t Explain or My Generation, and more’s the pity.
Camaro – Kings of Leon
Nashville rock group Kings of Leon sung about the Chevrolet Camaro in their third album Because Of The Times. The classic American model is the perfect inspiration for a rock song, which in turn should be the perfect inspiration for a car to hire.
