It’s always a little uncanny when someone cruises by with their music blaring, but the melody doesn’t quite fit the model they drive. The tunes we listen to and the cars we drive are an expression of who we are, so it stands to reason that there should be some commonalities from one group to the next. From the classiest of the classical to the redneckiest rockers, let’s take a look at the genre of music that fits the personality of the cars we drive.
The Classiest Of Classical
The heavy rumble of a powerful V12 can be heard six blocks away, and the intimidating largeness of a Rolls Royce glides up the street like a banshee in the night. The window goes down, and from it, you hear the ominous violins that seem to jockey for position behind the brass section of Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries. Or, perhaps, the crescendo of Tchaikovsky’s musical take on the history of Russia in the 1812 Overture, complete with cannon fire. The passenger – because if you’re going about in a Royce, you probably have a driver – should play something as timeless and powerful as the car. Unless, of course, you’re John Lennon.
If classical isn’t your jam, perhaps our next choice for something with a little more down home would suit you better.
