Last year, my pack decided to change up our Pinewood Derby a bit. One of the things we did was play music during our weigh-in time. It created a more festive atmosphere and added to the excitement of the race!
I searched for car-related music, and I found some fun songs! I created a Pinewood Derby playlist on my phone and connected the phone to our pack’s portable PA system. You could also use a portable Bluetooth speaker.
So, here’s our fun Pinewood Derby playlist! I’m including links to iTunes for my fellow i-users as well as to Amazon for our Android device users. These are my affiliate links, so if you click and order, I’ll earn a small commission (at no additional cost to you). If you do order, thank you!
2. Mustang Sally by Wilson Pickett – This song was recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama just a few miles from my hometown. There was some incredible music recorded in Muscle Shoals. Check out the documentary on iTunes or Amazon Instant Video.

9. Rocket 88 by Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats – Although I had never heard this old R&B song, it has become one of my favorite “feel good” songs. You can read about how a damaged amplifier created a trendy new sound.
