Well for the "L" selection, I'll put up Leon Russell. Thought about Delta Lady either his own rendition, or the iconic one from Joe Cocker, or maybe even Bobbi Gentri for a change. Then I had a look at his own version of "A song for you" covered by many other artists. Then I clicked on the Carpenter's version, and I'm afraid good as Leon was, Karen Carpenter's voice and interpretation are just sublime...So the car related selection for "L" (...the car being the SEAT Leon (apologies to Seat Leon owners but...yawn yawn!))..heres Karen and Richard and the band...

Favourite Leon Russell.
The vocal the playing, the emotion. It has it all.

A few to be going on with:
Montego Bay - Bobby Bloom, or perhaps Amazulu
Morris Minor and the Majors - Stutter Rap (probably best to ignore that one :lol: )
Anything by Booker T and the MGs
Anything by Maxi Priest
Goddess on a Hiway - Mercury Rev (perhaps that wins on three different scores :) )
Anything by Man (Welsh band)
Loving You - Minnie Riperton (OK, it's not quite a Mini, but it's close :) )

one of the comments
"this is a great song, but probably the worst music videos I've ever seen" :-D

Morris Minor and the Majors "Stutter Rap"? Number 4 in the UK Singles chart 1988? How???

Well I reckon because some of the Pickled Egg Punters could croon along to it, and poor old Bobby Bloom was a bit of a one-hit wonder, and his video is terrible, and the lyrics start off with...

Vernon'll meet me when the boat lands
Keys to th M. G. will be in his hands
Adjust to the driving 'n' I'm on my way
It's all on the right side in Montego Bay.

Which has a reference to an MG...I think it gets in to the PE Hall of fame (Car Related Juke Box Entry Section).

..you are digging up a treasure trove of those "Novelty Records" at least it wasn't Jasper Carrots "Funky Moped" :-D

I really like Car 67/Driver 67 which I found on the back of one of your suggestions!

'N' is proving a tricky one. :(
Something by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young perhaps ?

For a good old sing-a-long, Letter From america - The Proclaimers mentions Nova Scotia:

"I've looked at the ocean
Tried hard to imagine
The way you felt the day you sailed
From Wester Ross to Nova Scotia"

Something from Neon Neon ?

Can't think of anything Norton related :(

Well you could put nineteen 52 Vincent and he does mention a Norton? It's one of the best songs and performers in the World anyways!
