For me, a youg man coming of age in the early 70s, it has to be "Chevy Van", written and sung by Sammy Johns.  I love to turn that one up!!

That's a great one!  I love that one too.  When I was dating my Dan, his car wasn't working, so he walked from his apartment in the next town to my apartment and I remember him acting out the song and I laughed so hard.
