According to a recent survey, Bryan Adams' Summer of '69 tops the list of best driving songs.
The mid-1980s tune topped the list of seven suggested songs among men and women, according to a Decima Research survey of 1,000 Canadians.

British Columbians were divided between the song by Adams, a former Vancouver resident, and the Stones classic.
Who suggested these songs? Why were they picked?

The List:
1. Summer of '69 -- Bryan Adams
2. Bohemian Rhapsody -- Queen
3. Born to be Wild -- Steppenwolf
4. It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It) -- The Rolling Stones
5. Drive My Car -- The Beatles
6. Free Fallin' -- Tom Petty
7. Radar Love -- Golden Earring

Any thoughts on which would've been better?

Van Halen's Panama is the first to come to mind. And what about Deep Purple's Space Trucking?

Summer of '69? Puh-leez.

Of the 1000 Canadians i would like to know how many were related to Bryan Adams.

Canadian Content laws at work here or what.

Of 7 suggested songs. Bullshit. Tom Petty, Bryan Adams, Terrible.

I wonder if they are all owned by the same record company and this a means to weasel out some more record sales and radio ariplay or simple buzz about some songs thet they feeel they can still make some money out of.

You missed some key words in that quote Keeper. I've done a search and fixed it for you.

That's a perfect sized sample to get an idea of all of Canada's feelings.
:rolleyes:

For us, (us being my family) the whole Barney Bentall Greatest Hits CD is a must every road trip.
Something to Live For, Living in the 90's, etc.

Speaking of Music, TR, hurry up copy my Def Leppard and give it back.
:mad:
