  • Still More Disrespectful Car Songs

    Folks just can’t get enough of great, catchy songs that treat cars like... well, like Car Talk treats cars!  With the appropriate derision and, at the very least, a lack of respect.  So here we present our third volume of sing-a-long, Car Talk-approved car music.

    You'll hear new favorites:  “Beep, Beep, Beep” (sung to the tune of Moonlight Sonata), “90-Pound Suburban Housewife Drivin' in her SUV,” and 15 more that we fell in love with.  There's even one tune that features the semi-melodic voices of a certain pair of radio hosts -- but we promise, only one song!

    Unlike the Beach Boys and the Ripchords, these songs aren't singing praises to American Iron -- rather, they’re disrespectful, and sometimes even contemptuous. Just the way we like it.
