I heard Rihanna’s somewhat lazy “Shut Up And Drive” on the radio today and it got me thinking about better songs that used cars as a metaphor for something else. So I present my Top 5 Car Metaphor Songs. NOTE: The list does NOT include songs that are actually about cars!
Top 5 Car Metaphor Songs
“Little Red Corvette” – Prince
“Stolen Car” – Bruce Springsteen
“Pull Up To The Bumper” – Grace Jones
“The Distance” – Cake
“Motor Away” – Guided By Voices
