An inconsequential thread for consequential times...

So I was reading slate, and I came across this article:

What Would Jay-Z Drive?

Basically, Mercedes is one of the top brands mentioned in the American Top 20. It made me wonder... what songs have mentioned BMW's?

I know there's some Beastie Boys song, "excuse me young lady I don't mean to trouble ya/ you're looking so fly inside your BMW", and there's a Tribe Called Quest song, "In your Honda or your Beemer or your Legend or your Benz/ the rave of the town to your foes and your friends"... but I couldn't come up with anything else...

BLU CANTRELL LYRICS

"Hit 'Em Up Style"

While he was schemeing
I was beamin in the Beamer just beamin
Can't believe that I caught my man cheatin'
So I found another way to make him pay for it all

So I went
To Neiman-Marcus on a shopping spree
And on the way I grabbed Soley and Mia
And as the cash box rang I thought everything away

(Oops)
There goes the dreams we used to say
(oops)
There goes the time we spent away
(oops)
There goes the love I had but you cheated on me
And thats worth that now
(oops)
There goes the house we made a home
(oops)
There goes you'll never leave me alone
For all the lies you told
This is what you owe

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

While he was braggin
I was coming down the hill and just draggin
All his pictures and his clothes in the bag and
Sold everything else till there was just nothin left

And I paid
All the bills about a month too late
It's a shame we have to play these games
The love we had just fades away, away

(Oops)
There goes the dreams we used to say
(oops)
There goes the time we spent away
(oops)
There goes the love I had but you cheated on me
And thats worth that now
(oops)
There goes the house we made a home
(oops)
There goes you'll never leave me alone
For all the lies you told
This is what you owe

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

[Repeat 1x]

All of the dreams you sold
Left me out in the cold
What happened to the days when we used to trust each other
And all of the things I sold
Will take you until you get old
To get 'em back without me
Cuz a marriage is better than money you see

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

There's an Oasis song 'Supersonic' that has:

" . . . I want to ride with in your BMW
You can sail with me in my yellow submarine . . . "

There are a few BMW mentions in the Young & Restless song 'B-Girls.' (1990?)

And there's got to be one in a Sir Mix A Lot song someplace...

I stay up all night I go to sleep watchin' Dragnet
Never sleep alone because Jimmy is the magnet
I'm so rope they call me Mr. Roper
When the troubles arise you know I'm the cool coper
On the mic I score just like the Yankees
Get over on Ms. Crabtree like my main man Spankee

Excuse me young lady I don't mean to trouble ya
But you're looking so fly inside your B.M.W.


I got lucky I brought home the kitten
Before I got busy I schlepped on the mitten
Can't get better odds because I'm a sure thing
Proud Mary keeps on turning and rolling like a Ring Ding
Jump the turnstile never pay the tool
Doo wa diddy and bust with the pre-roll
Customs jailed me over an herb seed
Don't rat on your boy over some rat weed
I'm outta your back door I'm into another
Your boyfriend doesn't know about me and you're mother
Not perfect grammar always perfect timing
The Mike stands for money and the D. is for diamonds

Roses are red the sky is blue
I got my barrel at your neck so what the **** you gonna' do
It's just two wheels and me the wind in my eyes
The engine is the music and my nine's by my side
Cause you know why a you see H.
I'm takin' all M.C.'s out in the place
Takin' life as it comes no fool am I
I'm goin' off gettin' paid and I don't ask why
Playin' beats on my box makin' music for the many
Know alota def girls that'll do anything
A lot of parents like to think I'm a villain
I'm just chillin' like Bob Dylan
Yea I smoke cheeba it helps me with my brain
I might be a little dusted but I'm not insane
People come up to me and they try to talk shit man
I was making records when you were sucking on your mother's dick

Girl you're walking tall now in your fancy clothes
You got fancy things their going up your nose
You gettin' fancy gifts from expensive men
You're a dog on a leash like a pig in a pen
Mothership connection getting girl's affection
If your life needs correction don't follow my direction
You got your 8 by 10 your agent your Harley
You be driving around Hollywood with yo sorry charlie
Cause I'm running things like some Mack mother****er
You slipin' you slackin' cause you're a false fake sucker
You slip you slack you clock me and you lack
While I'm reading on the road by my man Jack Kerouac
Poetry in motion coconut lotion
Had to diss the girl because she got too emotional
Are you experienced little girl
I want to know what goes on in your little girl world
Cause I'm on your mind It's hard to forget me
I'll take your pride for a ride if you let me
So peace out ya'll, a PCP song out
Full throttle to the bottle and full full clout
And I'm out...
"Waa.."

Hey pretty (Drive-by 2001 mix)

Carrie suggested we go for a drive
In her new 2-door BMW coupe
In the parking lot, we slipped into her bucket seats
Carrie took over from there ...

Damn, the most drunk I had ever been in my life was early 20's, and I remember that song while dead drunk on a water bed, with a girl I had just met passed out next to me. I had lipstick all over my face and chest, but we were both still partially clothed, so I surmised we started something and both passed out LOL. Stumbled out and saw about 10 other people all passed out on sofas, ground, etc. At least I had the where with all to snag a bedroom mid-party and lock the door.

That song still sticks in my head because I remember watching the ceiling fan spinning and it was making me more sick; and one point during that song Mike D says "Had to much to drink at the Red Lobster, now the room is spinning round like the blades of a helicopter". The CD player was on repeat with that Beastie Boy CD (their best work, IMO) in.

Damn you! Posting those lyrics just gave me a goose-bump flashback!

EDIT: I might have been only 19, now I am racking my brains :D Nice memories of a carefree time.

Wow, impressive. I was going to name the same ones except for the Field Mob single, I can't understand those hicks. :rofl:

Okay, I'll add a classic:

Lost Boys - Jeeps, Lex Coupes, Beema's and the Benz (the title says it all)

Oh, and of course the Beenie Man single previously mentioned, Who Am I: "Sim Simma, who got the keys to my Bimma, who am I, the girls dem sugar"

Redman also used the same lyrics in the single I'll Be Dat.

Not quite a Bimmer, but Madonna's latest single "American Life" has a bridge with these lyrics:

I'm drinking this soy latte
I get a double shot-tay
It goes-a through my body
And you know I'm satisfied

I drive my Mini Cooper
And I'm feeling super duper
Yo, they me I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied

That list is pretty incomplete. :confused:

vienna just reminded me of another one, one of my personal favourite songs, Jay-Z ft. Blackstreet - The City is Mine: "Like the first dude to cop the 850 in 89 / and drove it up to 55th, the city is mine"

Jay-Z claims to have the first E31 V12. :bigpimp:
