    I crank it up to Pearl Jam,

    RHCP, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Green Day, etc.. Especially when Nirvana comes on. I have no idea what Kurt was singing about, but I feel like it is pure, so I sing/scream to it. I listened to a lot of alternative rock when my mom drove me to grade school, so I get powerful...

    I commute - anywhere from 1 to 2 hours - each

    way, so it's a necessity for me. It helps me stay awake. I love listening to music.

    A few weeks back I've bought my first car yay.

    A opel astra h gtc 1.6 Coupe and I'm in love with it. There's nothing better than getting into my car, connecting the aux cable and turn on my favorite music for my car ride. Now if only gas wouldn't be that damn expensive.

    When I say I like it loud,

    I mean it! If I can hear myself singing, it's not loud enough. I've heard me sing, it needs to be covered up.......... I hate what I call "Dumb Thumpers", you know...no real music, just a bass sound that thumps the ground and rattles their vehicle... I'm convinced it has the...

    You know when you stop at a red light

    and in your peripheral vision you see quite some motion in the vehicle next to you and hear quite the expressive music, so you casually glance over, to see a young lady being completely dramatic? Sometimes I wish I was the one glancing over at the weirdo, but this time, I was...

    I love to sing and dance

    while driving. lol. People driving by me either usually give me weird looks because I am completely of pitch probably or laugh and join in. I find it so much fun to just drive around windows down- it relaxes me. Is that weird? OHH Well if it does!

    Someone once asked me.

    ..... Is your accelerator somehow connected to the volume on the stereo???? Truth is i often have moments when the only way to release tension is to crank it up & just drive!! I love it!! :-)

    I turn it up as loud as possible, makes me actually feel more relaxed because it absolves me from having to the do the obligatory "pulling over".... I always get where I going ... Cause I never heard the sirens. (**zenzenzend**)

    My younger sister thinks I'm weird

    because when I have a headache I tell everyone to be quiet and raise the volume to the music. Music actually makes my headaches go away.
