Best Songs To Sing In The Car To Embarrass Your Kids


Ok, I'll start.

I fought the law by Bobby Fuller

Barbara Anne by the Beach Boys (Help me Rhonda is a close second)

Jambalaya by Hank Williams

Do this in the pickup line and they'll turn beet-red.
dragunski
Frank Zappa  Titties and Beer
Herman's Hermits - "I'm Into Something Good"

The Shadows of Knight - "G L O R I A !"

The Beach Boys - "I Get Around"
"Gloria" is a great choice, but I think I'd go for Van Morrison with Them.

No Hermans, though. 

Zappa is an interesting choice. I might try that if I knew the words. How about "Electric Aunt Jemima"?
I wish I had a better stereo in the car. I put all my bucks into the home rig. Anybody have tube amps in the car?
"99 bottles of beer on the wall"
‘My Sharona’, The Knack.  Remember, you have to play it at least 3 times to get the full affect!
There’s plenty to choose from in what was called Bubblegum music during 60’s to 70’s. Here’s some that should work.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy - Ohio Express
Sugar, Sugar - The Archies
Sweat Pea - Tommy Roe
Knock 3 Times - Tony Orlando and Dawn

The Night Chicago Died.
Crocodile Rock by Elton John.  Fun for everyone!  :)
"squeezebox" by the who

If that does not embarrass the kids, nothing will.

After Thanksgiving but before Christmas, it would be very appropriate to play,

Merry Christmas from the Family - Robert Earl Keen

Billy Joel's It's Still Rock and Roll to Me. 
Shake your Booty- KC and the Sunshine Band.
Paradise By The Dashboard Lights, Meatloaf. 
The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot.
Clickity Clack by Dickety Do and the Donts
Zappa's "The torture never stops" will blow their minds and they will never stop thanking you.  Or perhaps Roger Water's tune off of Umma Gumma, "Several species of small fury animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict."  Getting the so called words down might take a while though.  If you play that for them on a dark night they will never stop cursing you.   
Try

1985... Bowling For Soup
What about, "White Christmas"? Bing Crosby - my gawd, makes me embarrassed to suggest it.
Pussy Cat Pussy Cat, Tom Jones. Nuff Said!
Frank Zappa - Dinah Mo’ Hum (okay, I would never actually play that with my kid in the car!)
Queen - We Will Rock You (Fat Bottom Girls would also do nicely)
Kiss - Rock and Roll All Night or Shout it Out Loud
Charlie Brown - The Coasters
MacArthur Park, by Richard Harris
Come Sail Away by Styx 
“Walk on the Wild Side” should do the trick 
Holiday Road from National Lampoon’s Vacation
Sherry - Frankie Valli ...... if you can sing that high. Even worse if you can't.
Having My Baby - Paul Anka
Sultans of Swing....Dire Straits.....while playing the air guitar. Actually did it. My 16 year old grandson wanted to get out and walk the rest of the way home.
I'd say pretty much anything...right? Especially if they're in their teens.
It doesn't work on all teenagers. We once picked up my nephew from lacrosse practice in my GTO, top down, cheap Jensen triaxials blasting Wilson Pickett at full volume. He loved it.

We had to give his teammates rides around the parking lot. Even the coach.

But my nephew is extraordinarily well adjusted. His sister would have cried.
New York, New York - Sinatra

or

Bobby Brown goes down - Zappa 
The Silhouettes: GET A JOB!
"Play that funky music, white boy!"

" Having My Baby - Paul Anka "

--My bro in law, as projectionist.. played that song...for the opening of every playing of the film "Alien", at his theater.

The audience had no idea what they were in for.....
Oh...the humanity of it all!....
"I Am Woman" Helen Ready
"Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road"

Loudon Wainwright
Ok, lets take this to the next level:

Sing Madonna's "Like a Virgin" at the top of your lungs while wearing your favorite pair of (highly cropped) Daisy Duke shorts cut-offs, showing your albino-white dad legs, and with matching  Daisy Duke cut-off shirt above the navel!

Barbie girl -aqua! And really get into it

  Thin lizzy-cowboy song
 Saxon - wheels of steel
