Have you seen his car collection? There’s no way he can only go 55!
This week on The Top Ten Revealed, we need you buckle up and shift into gear as we count down the top songs about your ride. If your video features a black Ferrari and a shot at a the Saugus Speedway in Santa Clarita, California, it’s pretty obvious you’re going to make the list. That’s why we’re including “I Can’t Drive 55” by Sammy Hagar. Written in response to the 1974 National Maximum Speed Law, which prohibited any speed limits of 55, this was The Red Rocker’s way of sticking it to the man. As Hagar puts it, he got pulled over for going 62 miles per hour, “And he [the cop] said, ‘We give tickets around here for over-60.’ and I said, ‘I can’t drive 55.’ I grabbed a paper and a pen, and I swear the guy was writing the ticket and I was writing the lyrics.” Where will this track land on our top ten list? We’ll reveal our list of top ten songs about your ride on an all new episode of The Top Ten Revealed this SUNDAY at 8/7c!
