Road Trip Songs

It used to be the great American past time...  road trips.   Maybe not so much anymore but the memories of those family trips in the car bring back reminders of the sing alongs we had along the way.  

So in honor of the Great American Road Trip,  what are some of your favorite road trip sing along songs?

Now we're talking.

 

Get Out of Denver

Bob Seger

 

I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shinin'
My '60 Cadillac was rollin' through Nebraska whinin'
Doin' 120 man the fields was bendin' over
Headin' out for the mountains, knowin' we was traveling further
All our fires were blazing and the spinnin' wheels were turnin' turnin'
Had my girl beside me and brother, brother she was burnin' burnin'

 

I Can't Drive 55

Beautiful Girls     

Van Halen

 

Crawling from the Wreckage

Dave Edmunds

 

Crawlin' from the wreckage, Crawlin' from the wreckage
You'd think by now at least that half my brain would get the message
Crawlin' from the wreckage, Crawlin' from the wreckage
Into a brand new car

 

Crawlin' from the wreckage, Crawlin' from the wreckage
Bits of me are scattered in the trees and in the hedges

 

'Cause when I'm disconnected from the drivin' wheel
I'm only half the man I should be, metal hitting metal is-a all I feel
And everything is good as it poss-i-bul-ly could be

 

Flirtin' With Disaster

Molly Hatchet

 

I'm travelin' down the road
Just flirtin' with disaster
I've got the pedal to the floor,
My life is running faster

 

I'm out of money, I'm out of hope,
It looks like self destruction
Well how much more can we take,
With all of this corruption

 

Rock 'n' Roll Band

Boston

Old Beach Boys songs from the '60s.  Singing along with great enthusiasm but terrible harmonies.

This topic got me watching YouTube videos of my favorites:

 

Boys of Summer - Don Henley

Runnin' Down a Dream - Tom Petty

Turn the Page - Bob Seger

Danger Zone (Top Gun) - Kenny Loggins

 

Definitely would blast any of these, especially if the top is down!

On the road again by Willie Nelson

I am a huge Tom Petty fan and will sing any of his songs on the road, but my absolute favorite is "Learning To Fly".  And also Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Rock ‘n roll (Part 2) by Gary Glitter. This song always gets blasted in my car. But don’t listen to Part 1- it’s awful!
