Hello out there to all you road warriors. You're listening to KRUZ radio - your #1 cruising companion bringing you all of the best music for cruising.

I'm The Street Beat Specter and I'll be your host and guide for the next few miles. We've got a great treat lined up for you - KRUZ has invited some of our most loyal listeners to choose and champion their favorite cruising songs to compete in a tournament to determine your overall favorite. We'll be having a series of head to head matchups between the selected songs and we need you to call in and vote for your favorites. And if you're one of the participants you can also let us know why you chose that song.

But that's enough idling - let's get this show on the road.

Radar Love and Highway to Hell win and are taking the on-ramp to the main highway.

Next matches will be up (relatively) soon.

Match 3 (preliminaries):
A great thing to do while cruising on deserted streets is to look at All the Stars and it seems like Issun agrees. And while cruising it's always nice to have your friends along just like the singer Kendrick Lamar has SZA riding shotgun on this song with him.

However it looks like Falselogic thinks it's Sublime to cruise through some Garden Groves.

They both sound like great options to me but we can't do both so you'll have to choose one of them.

All the Stars - Kendrick Lamar & SZA

Garden Grove - Sublime

Match 4 (preliminaries):
Johnny Unusual wants to Runaway and look at The Bird and the Bee. Canada is full of natural beauty so I don't blame him.

Kaneda has the best bike ever but is it the best choice for cruising? Kishi seems to agree but only after adding some Italian Disc brakes by Zimmerman.

So it's either run or ride - which way will you roll?

Runaway - The Bird and the Bee

Kaneda's Theme (Italo Disco Reprise) - Peter Zimmermann

Voting will be open for the next 24 hours.

VS Graphics polling continued:
Do you like the black and white version better than either of the red and blue versions (which you seem to be split on)?
 

Behemoth

Dostoevsky is immortal!

I like the black and white version better.

All the Stars and Kaneda's Theme
 
Runaway Stars

All the Stars is a fantastic song in its own right, featuring two of the most talented artists of the last ten years, but I have another connection to it to that caused me to pick it for this dome: My favorite moment playing Forza Horizon 4 was drag racing through the streets of Edinburgh at night while this song was playing on the radio. It was an almost ethereal moment.

All the Stars and Runaway

No preference on the VS symbol

My favorite moment playing Forza Horizon 4 was drag racing through the streets of Edinburgh at night while this song was playing on the radio.
While I was making this list I was pained to have to cut all the songs from Blur from my nominations. I love that soundtrack. Arguably too aggressive to be called cruising which is what made me cut them but dang it hurt.

Black and white is good.

All the Stars and Kaneda's Theme (Italo Disco Reprise).

It's important to remember cruisin' can be done at night.
 

Behemoth

It's important to remember cruisin' can be done at night.

This was my premise in the nominations thread. There are (at least) two different kinds of cruisin': road trips, and driving around at night feelin' all moody.

All the Stars and Runaway keep on rolling.

Speaking of - does everyone want to continue having matches for this dome even though it's a holiday weekend?

I think what I'm going to do is run matches on Saturday (today) and Sunday (tomorrow) but give people an extra day (through Monday / Labor Day) to vote on the Sunday matches. After that we'll return to the regular schedule on Tuesday.
