Ford Escape’s own playlist

The sound system in the 2013 Ford Escape is fab and they want you to know it. To help, here’s a playlist that’s designed for listening.

A “Best of” Escape Playlist

  1. ZZ Top “La Grange” – Listen for the clean snare drum clicks, left and right rhythm guitars and strong bass guitar
  2. Yello “The Race” – Listen for a sensation of the car racing from right to left, and left to right. “It should sound spacious with transients of doors slamming,” Templin says
  3. Lou Reed “Walk on the Wild Side” – Listen for backup singers to move from far to near, testing image depth. Check for tonal balance and loud dynamics
  4. Kenny Chesney “Summertime” – Listen for clean vocals, instruments should be clearly defined
  5. Eminem “Remember Me” – Listen for loud dynamics, bass extension
  6. Rihanna “S.O.S.” – Listen for tonal balance, clean bass, nothing shrill in the tweeters
  7. Beyonce featuring Jay Z “Déjà Vu” – Listen for bass to be clean and even. Vocals should not break up or sound overly bright
  8. Peter, Paul and Mary “I Have a Song To Sing O” – This is an old recording with vocals panned left-center-right in order to test staging and imaging. Voices should retain a natural timbre
  9. Johnny Cash “Bird on a Wire” – This intimate recording (as if Cash were in his living room) tests tonal balance and spatial qualities. Vocals show a close-mike effect
  10. Bruno Giuranna Mozart Piano Quartets 1 & 2, “Allegretto” – Listen for a natural piano tone. Strings should be forward
