And they particularly love Thunderbirds

 

The Beach Boys of course immortalized the Thunderbird in Fun Fun Fun [and Little Deuce Coupe]

but there have been a few other songs about this iconic Detroit beauty.  From my car show playlist:

 

Marc Cohn - Silver Thunderbird

 

Chuck Berry - Jaguar and Thunderbird

 

The Delicates - Black and White Thunderbird (1959)

 

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band - Makin' Thunderbirds

 

John Hiatt - Thunderbird.

 

Alan Jackson - First Love [ about his Thunderbird ]

 

Walter Egan - The Blonde In the Blue T-Bird

 

Prince - Alphabet Street [ Drivin' Daddys Thunderbird ], Dead On It [ Thunderbird on the freeway ]

 

Trisha Yearwood -  Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love

[When she takes a chariot to see  the lord, she hopes that chariot is a red  Thunderbird Ford

 

Jeff Beck - Pink Thunderbird [ Beck is a die-hard car geek ]


Steve Winwood - Time Is Running Out [ Johnny drives a Thunderbird ]

 

Robert Palmer, Bonnie Raitt  - You're gonna Get What's Coming

                                                [ Got a Thunderbird parked outside ]

 

Alabama - Reckless [ alas, the 'bird does a Thelma and Louise ]

 

Steve Azar - Thunderbird

 

Booker T - Down in Memphis [ only 10 minutes in his Thunderbird ]
