On my way to work this morning, I was listening to SiriusXM and a song came on that always cheers me up. Not sure if it's for one reason, or another (spoilers, so I won't go into detail until an answer is accepted); however, in the spirit of my previous riddle, can you guess this song? Should be simple enough!

I'm stuck here in traffic, that couldn't go slower;

I could go faster, while riding my mower.

I could take the next exit, I know every street;

What is the point, more traffic I'll meet.

If the insanity continues, I'll run out of gas;

I wish it would move, just pick up, go fast.

Hint:

If finding me has you stuck in a slump; my genre is originally known as the funk.

Hint:

Look to the riddle, for it will tell; the words that you seek, aren't hidden that well.

Hint:

Even the title, can be seen as the same; this song is part of, the Grammy Hall of Fame.

As a bonus question, do you know what this song was written about?

    $\begingroup$ Can we get a hint as to the genre (of this one and the other song riddle)? I have no idea where to begin looking! XD $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 20 '18 at 17:14

Is this song

Low Rider, by War? It's a fantastic song (and thankfully one from an era that I know haha!)

Apparently,

thanks to that link, it's about hydraulically hot-rodding classic cars! Also, it's the theme song to the George Lopez show!

  • $\begingroup$ Hence I didn't want to add too many hints! That was too fast... :( Great shot! $\endgroup$ – PerpetualJ Aug 20 '18 at 17:29

    $\begingroup$ In all honesty, if it wasn't from 1955-1985, I had zero chance of guessing it correctly haha! Love the song though! $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 20 '18 at 17:31
  • $\begingroup$ It is a fantastic song! Surprised my first one hasn't been guessed, though it isn't as mainstream! Especially to my generation! $\endgroup$ – PerpetualJ Aug 20 '18 at 17:35
