This BP oil crisis is so frustrating, nothing we can do about it so instead of “fuming” over it, why not try to “lighten” up? So, today’s music thread is all about fuel, fire, burning, combusting, power, everything that “flows” from oil and energy.

So, let us begin with a mini tribute to BP’s first attempt to minimize damage from the oil spill:

Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash

Burning Love – Elvis

I’m Burning For You – Blue Oyster Cult

Fire on High – ELO

Now to what that oil fuels:

Crosstown Traffic – Jimi Hendrix

Radar Love – Golden Earing

Black Limousine – Rolling Stones

Pink Cadillac – Bruce Springsteen

Driving Wheel – Foghat

Going Mobile – The Who

Highway to Hell – AC/DC

Drive My Car – The Beatles

Your turn to burn some rubber!
