Songs you have to sing in the car...

Well, you don't HAVE to, but if you have any human inkling in your body, you'll at least tap your foot (you're nondriving foot) while shifting around the radio dial...

I Like Big Butts- Sir Mixalot "I like big butts and I cannot lie..." you know you're going to be singing this for the rest of the day now.

Ice Ice Baby- Vanilla Ice...the white version of M.C.Hammer, my youth brings back entertaining images of doing his dancing from this video. Sad I tell ya.

Bitch-Meredith Brooks. Need I say more? You gotta love the looks when you're belting this one out next to a Studebaker with a family of 8.

Barbie Girl- Aqua This one was on the other day, how I miss doing the Barbie Dance on a box at Olivers...sigh...shout out to the best dang club around, and the club where Lindsey's hubby was originally seen! Barbie Girl and knee hi go-go boots...what could make the night any better?

Which brings me to Tubthumpin-Chumbawumba I try to do the drinky dance while in the car with this one. Doesn't work as well as it did while at a club or Lind's wedding.

U and Ur Hand-Pink Maybe this one is just me, but somehow it makes me feel better when I scream "I'm not here for you ready to tame me..." makes me feel more myself than the Martha Stewart homebody that I've become. I miss my inner wild child.

I'm Just a Girl- No Doubt This was pre-Gwen getting all "Wind it Up", "Holla Girl", and yodeling, prior to her having her own clothing and purse line, and when No Doubt was the hottest thing in alternative music. I relish for Gwen to reunite with the band, which I hear is soon.

Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond How can you NOT sing Neil while on the road with the windows down? "Sweet Caroline...a bum bum bum...good times never felt so good...SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD!!!" Ah, a classic. Also one of those songs everyone sings along with while out doing karaoke...other thing I've lost through my domestication...I don't go sing anymore.

Wannabe (If You Wanna Be My Lover)- Spice Girls British pop in the form of women looking like prostitutes, the birth of Girl Power. They still play this on my 80's and today radio station, I bounce in my seat everytime it's on.

Take On Me- A-Ha LOVED this video, the only song that I know these guys actually had. I don't know how that guy can get his voice so high, must not have any kahoneys.

Ironic- Alanis Morrisette Isn't it ironic, don'tcha think? "It's like raaaaa-eee--aaaiiiin...."

Volcano Girls- Veruca Salt Thank you Linds for doing this with me in karaoke...I still do the squeal in my car, I've gotten quite good at it.

I Saw The Sign- Ace of Base

Believe- Cher Powerful song, always hurts my throat cause I sing so loud, maybe I should turn down the volume so I'm not trying to outdo the radio?

King of Wishful Thinking- Go West Ah, my high school days are coming back to me now...

This Kiss- Faith Hill Sweet song from a gorgeous voice, until I chime in.

Foolish Games- Jewel Another avid karaoke song that is requested whenever I go out with friends.

Now this isn't just one song, this is ANYTHING by Sarah McLachlan...love her voice, and love all her songs.

I'm Too Sexy- Right Said Fred Show me someone who does sing along this song when it's playing, and I'll show you someone getting b-slapped for lying.

Mambo No. 5- Lou Bega The guy's a man-whore talking about his lady friends...but the song's got a saucy beat.

Aerosmith...another band where I'll sing anything they have on the radio, especially "Ragdoll", "Pink", and "Angel". Unfortunately, I rarely hear them on the radio anymore.

Barenaked Ladies...yet another band I will listen to just about any of their songs, whether I understand the words or not...I'll just make them up, like my friend Bobo who though that the song "Natural Woman" where he thought the words were "You make me feel like a man, I'm a woman..." instead of the actual words of "You make me feel like a natural woman...". Gotta love that kid.

I'm Only Happy When it Rains- Garbage Hey, I dig the darker stuff sometimes.

Two Princes- Spin Doctors

Dirrty- Christina Aguilera One of the songs that makes me feel like a bad girl, even when it's just driving to the grocery store.

La Vida Loca- Ricky Martin I'd do the sexy shoulder shake, but I'd knock myself out driving from the "twins"...there not used to that much movement.

Bring me to Life- Evanescence Gotta love the voice on that gal.

Hazel Eyes- Kelly Clarkson Powerful voice from the first American Idol...look how that shows gone to pot since then...at least we got Daughtry too.

Switch AND Men In Black- Will Smith Gotta do it Big Willie Style...fun lyrics that get ya bouncing in the car as well.

Just by looking at that list, I should seriously put together a CD to put in the car for long rides, plus lots of water and throat drops so I'm not hoarse before I get to my destination.

What are songs that YOU like to sing in the car at the top of your lungs?
