Self-driving cars and music


#1

Found this on Facebook.

Which makes me wonder, what would a song about a self-driving car be like?


#2

Obviously the car would have to be named Lucille.

A self driving car, even if it wants to leave you, is no problem, b/c it always runs out of gas

She took a drive, in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled, when She turned down that lane
But it’s all right now, in fact, She’s out of gas
But it’s all right. I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash
And She’s out of gas, gas, gas :wink:

“Thank God and Greyhound it’s gone” comes to mind for any car that would run away from its owner.

We have a rule: whoever drives chooses the radio station. If the car drives itself, will it choose the music too?


#6

There’s already a song for that:


#7

Reminds me of the old westerns where the horse gets spooked and heads back to the home stable leaving the owner to walk back.

Imagine a day when your car drops you off at the front door of a business/mall/friend’s house and then goes off on its own to find a docking station to charge back up. Summon the car via an app on your personal device and viola, it shows up to pick you up. Sweet.

How is this different than being married?


#10

I won’t lose 1/2 my stuff if I take a different car to the mall.

And I don’t have to drive the wife to the mall.
