Far too many to list here, but at this very moment "You can't always get what you want" (Rolling Stones, from "Let it Bleed") is pumping the speakers good 'n proper.

'Rockin In The Free World' by Neil Young is one, along with any similar rock based track of his.
Just about anything by AC/DC

"Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Baba O'Reilly" by (of course!) The Who. Doesn't get much better at full volume.

Oh - and another one: The whole of "Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars" by Bowie (his best album ever, in my opinion). The louder the better!

My 'Drive-by Truckers' CDs (I had Southern Rock Opera playing in the car this afternoon)
My 'Hamsters' CDs
The Madding Crowd by Ninedays. Especially when 'Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)' comes on. It brings back memories of a great holiday I had in Canada back in 2000, it was regularly heard on the car radio!

Love Train-The O'Jays- surely no one on the planet can not get up and dance their flares off etc when this song is played at full volume.

Superb record.

I was playing "What is Life?" by George Harrison (featuring the guitar of the great Eric Clapton) from "All Things Must Pass" very loud in the car earlier.

It's very good. Johnnie Walker has been known to play it in his various shows, usually when he feels like blowing a few cobwebs out of the studio!

Of course, he can still play it in his new show, given that it's from the beginning of the 1970s.

Another loud track that sounds great when played.. er.. loud: "21st Century Schizoid Man" by the inimitable King Crimson. Yeah man!

Just been playing "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones (as if anybody needed reminding!) in the car. Very loudly. Very loudly indeed.

Naughty - but nice! Smile

Hi ho silver lining - Jeff Beck, reminds me of (Radio) Caroline Roadshows.
Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams, just love this and I've got it on my phone as a ringtone.
Won't back down - Tom Petty, my theme tune. I hate any sort of unfairness or injustice and will defend something to the death if I believe in it enough.

I'm now playing David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars" very loudly (as it should be played)!

Takes me back to seeing him in character at both the Plymouth Guildhall and later in his Aladdin Sane persona at Torquay Town Hall.

"Ziggy played guitar......"

No and to think it's twenty years old maybe they should play that 90's indie stuff, then again it's no different than the simillar "rave" era I can almost see 40 coming over the horizon so surely R2 should move a bit closer to 80's and 90's (obviously not the likes of Firestarter but there are some stuff playable)

Duel being that absolutely superb single release from 1985 by German band Propaganda
Not to be confused with Jewel another track by Propaganda which I believe was on the same original EP
I know this because I sometimes see a guy in Abergavenny market who claims to be able to get his hands on any single ever released
I asked him to obtain a copy of the Propaganda EP and needless to say he has failed to date and probably wishes he had never met a pain in the backside like me
He's the hell of a nice man though and fair does he's still trying!

Santa I have tried e bay in the past but of course it's a question of having the time to keep checking it
The weekend just gone was free listing on e bay so I will actually check it now on the basis that many people list some fairly obscure things when its free listing
