Songs that Will Get You a Ticket (T13)

Now that we’re into decent roll-down-the-windows weather while driving, I’ve compiled a list, in no particular order, of songs you should NOT have playing on your stereo while driving, or you may feel your right foot getting heavier and heavier, causing you to speed and risk getting a ticket. Not that I’m speaking from experience.


  1. All My Life by the Foo Fighters
  2. 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago
  3. Like a Stone by Audioslave (when they modulate up towards the end? whoa! got chills just thinking about Chris Cornell’s voice…he makes my knees quiver!)

  4. Play that Funky Music by Wild Cherry
  5. Paralyzer by Finger Eleven
  6. This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race by Fall Out Boy
  7. California Love by Tupac
  8. Hella Good by No Doubt
  9. Canned Heat by Jamiroquai
  10. Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine
  11. Higher Ground by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  12. Vasoline by the Stone Temple Pilots
  13. Harder to Breathe by Maroon 5 (and Adam Levine makes it harder for me to breathe…whoo!  the HOTness!  And uh, actually Justin used to look a lot like this when he was younger…that might explain the attraction)

About the Author


This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.



Great list!!! What about Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins???

Paralyzer totally gets me going–especially when running. I’m an Olympian on some of these songs . . .


Whew! I was starting to think that I had very odd taste in music that no one knew about! (AFF and Karen, y’all aren’t that old…just listen you might recognize a few, even if they’re ones you quickly turn off the radio…ha ha).


Rockin set you’ve put together!!!! I love it when people appreciate more than one kind of music. Broadens the horizons, I say. *And gives some pleasant mental images!

You’re right about that! 🙂

Obviously being older than you, I especially like 2 and 4.

Stop by my TT when you get a moment!

Great list Colleen! I definetely do have lead foot more with these songs as well! 🙂


I’ll be off getting streams of those songs, you made me want to listen now, hehe. I must admit though, i stared at the photo longer than I read the list 😉
