Have you ever gotten a speeding ticket because you were driving to a fast song?
I thought of this tonight, because my daughter just got a ticket. She said she was rocking to an old song (Bon Jovi is old to her....."Livin' on a Prayer"! :rofl:) and didn't realize how fast she was going.

It made me remember being stopped during Springsteen's "Born to Run." I can never hear that song now without thinking of getting a ticket.


Do you have a song like this? The one that made you get a ticket?

1. No, but only because no cops were around
I have been rocking in my car to the Indigo Girls and driving at least ninety before, before I realized it and slowed my ass down !!

5. Indigo Girls are fun.
I can think of a few of Amy Ray's songs that would speed me up.

I remember driving through Alabama to "Southland in the Springtime." That was mellow, though. :)

2. No. But anytime I hear "W" I just want to drive over everyone on the road.

4. I am 48 years old
and got the first speeding ticket of my life last month. It was one of those really bad speed traps with confusing signs, but I was too busy at work to go and fight it. I just paid it.

Now I am waiting for my bill from the state of Texas for my 'surcharge'.

8. So funny because one time my friend and I were coming home from work,
Edited on Sat Dec-06-08 01:12 AM by Shell Beau
and Whitney's version of "I Will Always Love You" came on the radio. We were making fun of it with our singing and we were into it (Whitney wannabe's). I looked at the speedometer and she was going 95 (luckily we were on the interstate and not some local road) but I called her out on it. Whitney = 95 mph??? WTF??? We laughed our asses off. If you are going to go 95 for any song it should never be a slow love song MUCH LESS a Whitney Houston song.
