Can You Guess the Car References in These Songs? Test Your Knowledge as You Read Through It
Road trips are better with good music playing on the car stereo, and apparently, artists think, songs get nicer when there’s a car reference in it. The Beatles, for example, made a song cheerfully letting someone they love drive their cars with a very upbeat melody that is perfect for a long drive.
The Sugarhill Gang – Rapper’s Delight
Hip hop music also has plenty of songs, directly and indirectly, referring to luxury vehicles. Rap artists like The Sugarhill Gang take pride in their precious four-wheel-drives by literally story-telling it inside the tracks.
In their 1979 classic hit Rapper’s Delight, Big Bang Hank tells everyone opulent he is for owning a Lincoln Continental and a sunroof Cadillac. The whole song basically describes how delightful the rappers’ lives are.
Kanye West – Last Call
Forbes Magazine hailed Kanye West as fourth richest rappers in the world this year, and in the world of showbiz, becoming rich means acquiring more luxury stuff like expensive vehicles.
His music is well-known for the amazing wordplay he puts in his songs like the one in Last Call where he used the terms “Mayonnaise-colored Benz” and “miracle whips” pertaining to his white Mercedes-Benz. Most Americans are known to use Kraft’s Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise, and the term “whip” was widely associated with the brand Mercedes-Benz, a long time ago.
Blondie – Rapture
In Blondie’s sci-fi-inspired song Rapture, Debbie Harry talks about a man from the planet Mars, who happens to eat all sorts of things he sees on his way.
And, oh boy, he ate a lot of luxury cars including Cadillac, Lincolns, Mercuries, and Subarus! Apparently, the weird entity from Mars ended up eating bars when he was through with the cars.
Chiddy Bang – Handclaps and Guitars –
Not all songs with car references are all about bragging them though. Chiddy wrote a wholesome piece, reminiscing the day he and Xaphoon Jones crossed paths at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
The song Handclaps and Guitars is about the good old days when they started making music riding an Acura while everybody else is driving a better vehicle.
Oasis – Supersonic
If Kanye West works his magic on wordplay, the band Oasis is well-known for songs that rhyme with display. In their song Supersonic, the Gallagher brothers wanted to ride with someone with a BMW, who makes them laugh. In return, they generously offered sailing in a yellow submarine.
The Black Eyed Peas
The Black Eyed Peas surely doesn’t want anybody feeling low, and it shows in their party anthem Let’s Get it Started.
The American band wants to make sure that everyone who listens to their music, whether they are partying with their friends at the club or on the road with their Bentley grooves to the rhythm of their beat. I’m sure rocking that expensive vehicle with The Black Eyed Peas music on the stereo is epic.
