So, you’re about to embark on a long journey.

The car’s sorted, you know how you’re going to get there and you’ve discussed driving duties. But there’s something missing.

The music!

And that’s the stage we’re at with #FastAndFrugal too.

We’re responsible for what we see out of the Prius Plug-in’s windscreen but you can choose what comes out of its speakers

We’ve got the cars, route and drivers but what we haven’t yet sorted is what to listen to as we cover 1270 miles of mainland Britain in less than 24 hours.

Well, in order to stop any arguments about Orbison or Oasis and Elvis or Elgar, we’d like your help.

We’re after 24 songs or instrumentals to make a Fast And Frugal soundtrack to remove any heated debates about whose iPod is going to be synced.

But there’s got to be a theme to the tracks you nominate, linked to driving, road trips or somewhere we’re visiting on the trip. If you’re feeling especially ingenious, you could even link your choice to the GT86 or Prius.

What are we going to listen to in the GT86 in addition to the melodious boxer engine?

Simply email your suggestion to keithwrjones@gmail.com or Tweet me it.

Nominations can be submitted up to 22:00 BST on Sunday 12 August, after which point there’ll be a couple of days of voting for the final 24 to make the album.

And those nominations are important – Scott’s threatening to preload the cars with Andy Williams CDs…
