I thought i'd put together a compilation CD of songs about Camaros.
I wanna play in the studio while we work on the 5th Gen!

So far i got:
Go Lil Camaro - The Ramones
Yellow Camaro - Weezer
Dad's Camaro - Tennis Pro
Big Hair Camaro - Red Planet
Green Camaro - Christopher Dallman

I'm sure there are others, help me out guys...

there is one song out there most people don't know exists. in fact, it is pretty rare. it's called "camaro" by the cyrkle. you can TRY to find info on it, but you probably won't.

basically, it was released to chevy dealers in the 60s on a 45 record. one side had "ss396" by paul revere and the raiders, and the other side had "camaro" on it.

the only way i have EVER found it was to go to the store and buy the cyrkle's album "neon", because it is on there; it's like track 20 or something like that.

oh, and it's all about the firstgen camaro. i practically get teary eyed everytime i hear it, it is THAT good. and so true about my feelings towards this car.

LYRICS!

alrighty, here are the lyrics for "camaro" by the cyrkle. some of them are a little hard to understand, so forgive anything that doesn't make much sense.

Hear the rumbling notion
When the palm trees sway when the Camaro
Silently goes by.

On a mountain road
Where very few can follow, see Camaro
Climb up to the sky.

At home on a quiet street
Already too complete
Is Camaro.

Down the endless highway
Lonely winds are chasing the Camaro
Racing to the Sun.

From a bright marquee
The neon lights are shining on Camaro
When the day is done.

(Chorus)
The Answer to all the dreams
Of men and their machines
Is Camaro

Riding softly by
Climbing to the sky
Racing to the Sun
When the day is done.

(Music interlude)
Runs like Camaro

Chorus


---Kevin :D
