Volkswagen has some of the coolest music in their commercials. I've compiled a list of the commercial, song, and atrist (mainly because I wanted to locate and acquire this music for myself). I figured there must be others searching for this too, so I put my list here. I've also added CD information (when I could find it) and a link to purchase from Amazon. This is not a complete list, and as I have time, I will continue to build it. Anyone that can help fill in the blanks, please send me an e-mail!

true vw music!

The Beetles : Greatest Sounds of the 60's and 70's
by The Bugs
Believe it or not this CD consists of recordings of three actual Bugs : a 1960 Beetle, 1100cc; a 1973 Beetle, 1600cc; and a 1978 Beetle, and 1600cc Fuel Injected. How cool is that?

I know I miss the old engine sounds when driving my New Beetle!

You can view some of these commercials onVW's web site at http://www.vw.com/commercials/.
