    Answer to question 1:


    LOW RIDER by War

    I CAN'T DRIVE 55 by Sammy Hagar


    Answer to follow-up question:

    1. The right combination of lyrics and melody are what make a great song. My pet peeve, when it comes to a song, is lack of variety in lyrics/repetition of the SAME lyrics. With over 50,000 words to choose from - some lyricist could really stand to be more creative. 

    So, to answer your second question: I rather have a song with a good melody and varied lyrics (even if it's about an electric car or nonsensical lyrics), over a song of substance that has limited/repetitious lyrics.

    2. And, think it would be helpful if the electric car that is being sung about is slightly cooler than a Prius - such as a Tesla or BMW.

    So yes, I think it's totally possible to have a good song about an electric car.

    Aside from the obvious choices. 

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Highway Chile 

    The Doors - Cars Hiss By My Window

    Horslips - Motorway Madness 

    Motörhead - Riding With The Driver

    Mahogany Rush - Finish Line

    Hawkwind - Motorway City 

    Scorpions - Rock My Car 

    Sammy Hagar - Trans Am

    Badlands - Hard Driver 

    King Kobra - Mean Street Machine

    Fu Manchu - Redline 

    Truly - Blue Flame Ford 

    Hardline - Rhythm From A Red Car 

    Local H - BMW Man 

    As for Electric cars? It's possible, though it'd probably be either on the "Silent but Deadly" or tech related kind of vibe. Though you'd want to be quite a Petrolhead, or in this case a Motorhead. To come up with a tune that doesn't come across as a try-hard. Still you never know.

    It's possible to write a song about whatever you desire to. No one tell if a song will be good or not. Good is relative. What's good to you may not be good to another person.

    Electric cars? Well maybe a Tesla.

    Love Janis and Highway Star is a good song too. I think I have to go with two Springsteen songs. Cadillac Ranch and Ramrod.
