    I've been working on getting my videos condensed down to just some action clips, and have about a 5 minute clip lined out so far. Now I need music to put with.

    All the action clips you see have hard rock, fast paced, adrenaline pumping music. Now, I can't say me or any of my friends are all that hardcore in our clips, but I want something that keeps the watcher interested and goes with the "action" theme.

    Any ideas on what would be a good song or songs? (need a hair over 5min. worth). I don't want to use something thats been used a million times before on 4x4 videos, or something that the lyrics totally don't fit.

    I second that Satriani tune...

    Looking at my 5+ minute mp3's, I was also thinking "Finding My Way" by Rush might work, it's about 5:08 with an instrumental fade-up intro into a fairly fast song, with a sharp ending, not a fade-out.

    The lyrics *might* fit a wheeling video (random lines from memory);
    "I'm comin out to getcha, coming out to find you, ooooh finding my way."
    "I'm runnin, I'm finding my way back home"
    "Lookout I'm coming, look out I'm coming, whoa yeah"

    "well I'm runnin, finding my way back home"
    "I've had it for now, livin on the road." - Is there a better line for an *off*road video?



    off topic, but I've always wanted to make a video for Bush "Machinehead". For some reason, I think that song would be absolutely perfect for a video of a 1973 Dodge Polara Coupe doing 180 down the Long Island expressway, and at the end, the driver walking away from it as a burning wreck under a bridge to the "I walk from my mahcine" part...

    I think some of the Audioslave songs would be perfect. "I Am The Highway" would be pretty cool. :)

    Ever since I saw audioslaves video for "Show me how to live", a tribute to vanishion point, I always associate it to vehicles.
