“Life’s Been Good” — Joe Walsh
There aren’t a lot of songs about Maserati, and this really isn’t one either. The Joe Walsh song “Life’s Been Good” came out in 1978 and is his biggest solo hit. Describing the crazy life of a rock star from that era, Walsh famously sings, “My Maserati does 185 / I lost my license, now I don’t drive.” Walsh owned a custom 1964 Maserati 5000 GT — while it was a fast car, it’s unlikely his Maserati ever did 185 mph.
