Music was in driver's seat, literally at that. And the Sunday crowd couldn't have asked for a better tune.

Playback singer, Usha, kick-started the musical programme organised to celebrate the sale of seven lakh Bajaj Puslar motorcycles with an Annamacharya rendition.

She drove the show in top gear with the hit number, `Ranu ranu antune...' from "Jayam." The audience went gaga when she sang `Tuneega tuneega... ' from "Manasantha Nuvve." If her `Nelluru nerajana... ' from "Oke Okkadu" floored everyone, the singer surprised them with `Churaliya hai tum ne jo dil ko... ' from `Yaadon ki Baarat.'

The audience changed gear with ease from the melody of Usha to `Gongura rap' of singers -- Anil, Suhasini and group.

Hyderabad-based dancer, Satya, and his troupe had the audience in awe what with strobe lights and smoke-filled stage revving up the show. The troupe danced to numbers from `Arya,' `Shankardada MBBS,' `Venki' and Bollywood hit, `Dhoom.'

Mimicry artiste, Babu Rao, had the crowd in splits by singing the same song in different voices of singers. The Bajaj regional manager, B.K. Senapathi, later gave away keys of the 7,00,001st Pulsar to a customer.
