Songwriters definitely have some favorite go-to subjects. Love, sex, hard times and drugs all come to mind. But if you wanted to create a list of the top 10 rock and roll song themes, you could make a pretty easy case for the car. If you narrowed the list down further, to car types for example, the sports car would no doubt emerge victorious. If you narrowed it down by color, red would be in a neck and neck race for first place with black. The color red can symbolize romance, sex, anger, passion, pain, guilt and sin, so it offers a lot of opportunity for creative songwriters. This playlist includes the first 10 songs about red cars that I could come up with.
