Today is a gridlock alert day. So you may want to think twice about bringing your car into Manhattan. However, if you like the sounds of honking horns, sirens and engines revving, then go right ahead. Those are the same sounds we want to hear in today's selections for the Question of the Day. Park them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

UPDATE: NYC Department of Transportation has announced, "Due to a clerical error, three #GridlockAlert Days were incorrect in this year’s announcement. 11/15 and 11/20 are NOT Gridlock Alert Days. Friday, 11/22 -IS- a Gridlock Alert day."

Here's what we played:

Harry Nilsson "Driving Along"

The Beach Boys "409"

Midnight Star "No Parking (On the Dance Floor)"

The Steve Miller Band "Living in the U.S.A."

The Shangri-Las "Leader of the Pack"
