Almost before the first automobile tires had hit the road, new songs were being written – inspired by an astonishing technological innovation: the horseless buggy. These compositions expressed the world’s fast-growing love affair with the motorized car, and many of the earliest songs were written in the United States. With recordings such as 1902's “Get a Horse”, all the way through to Bruce Springsteen’s “Pink Cadillac”, we’ll even sample that morbidly popular teenage category of car disaster songs. Historic recordings will be joined by an amazing wealth of examples from the past century in nearly every conceivable style. Seatbelts required; crash helmets optional.
