The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about speed. Do you have a favorite speed song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about moving fast. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good speed songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a speed songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Speed of Sound by Coldplay, Speed King by Deep Purple, and Speed of Life by David Bowie. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has speed in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about going fast, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
