Listomania: The Best Songs to Listen to During a High-Speed Chase

High speed car chase at DC9 HQ, y'all!
Just a few minutes ago, the not-so-high-speed chase that happened in Dallas passed by the Dallas Observer offices. We cheered as the carjacking suspect led about six or seven cop cars down Maple Avenue, and we discussed his motive, his determination, his lack of clothing, and, finally, his playlist.

Assuming he had planned ahead for the ultimate high-speed chase mix--and synced it to his iPod before flipping the bird to the cops--we've come up with the list of songs we're positive that this dude was jamming. Until, that is, he was smashed on the Love Field tarmac.

Check it out after the jump.

1. "Keep The Car Running" by Arcade Fire

OK, so this guy doesn't exactly look like he's the typical ACL-attending Arcade Fire fan. But "Keep the car running" is probably what he said as he allegedly stole someone's car while they were still in it.

2. "I Fought The Law" by The Clash

We like to think he was really jamming to this track--right up until the part where it said the law won. I think he forgot that part when he made the playlist.

3. "Fuck The Police" by NWA

By this point in his mixtape, the cops were onto him. So what did he do? He lit up a cigarette and turned up the stereo. Seriously. Go back and watch the footage. Dude was smoking out the window.

4. "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes

This song was an accident. He immediately skipped to the next track, while he noticed three or four police cruisers in the rear-view mirror.

5. "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins

We kind of hope this was the song playing as his back right tire blew. Things were getting dangerous. And no one wanted to be his wingman. What a maverick!
