What are the top 10 songs you like to listen to while on a road trip?

    Pretty simple really - I listed my top 10 songs that I would listen to over and over again on a road trip.
      I received some pretty nice comments, and one was "I wonder what other peoples top 10 would be?"
      Would you care to share your top 10 road trip songs?
      I would like to see the diversity of music on HubPages.
      Cheers,

      It don't just stop at ten.  I like all the oldie goldies from the 60s, especially the soul music...Sam cook, Arethis Franklin, Sam and Dave, Ottis Redden, Al Green....you get the picture

        Hi Carol,
          I understand it is a bit of work, but if you could list your 10 songs that you would not go on a road trip without , that would be great!
          Cheers

      Ah, thooghun,
        Just 6?
        Do you have 4 more?

      Spirit in the Sky was by the immortal (yeah, right) Norman Greenbaum and it has one of the killer guitar riffs of all-time.  Some glam band of the '80's redid it, and it wasn't pretty.  Beavis and Butthead actually slammed the remake.

    One is "When the Bullet Hits the Bone" (Twilight Zone).

    Another is "Sweet Child of Mine."

      Great choices!
      We listen to "Lazy" in our backyard, but not in the car (don't know why).
      I have always ADORED the Robert Palmer trilogy. Or anything else by RP.

        It's actually "I Can't Drive 55", but I had to bump it up a little since the speed limit hasn't been that for a long time.  I couldn't go 55 either! smile

    Cardiaposted 5 years ago

    When I'm driving, I really like songs that are upbeat and fun (though I guess they can be pretty distracting!)
    On road trips, I like listening to anything by Coldplay, the Script, We the Kings, My Chemical Romance. In fact, MCR's latest album "Danger Days" has some really good tracks to drive along to, like "Summertime" and "Scarecrow".

    And who could forget the classic 'Life is a Highway' by Rascal Flatts?

    1. claptona profile image81
      claptonaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Yupper, Life on the Highway is a classic.
        Glad I posted this in the forums - remembering many songs I had forgot about!

    "Baracuda" by Heart, although it tends to make your foot go much heavier on the gas pedal!

    Ho'boy, that's tough.

    We Laugh at Danger and Break all the Rules - Against Me!
    Steady Riot - Big D & the Kids Table
    Death or Glory - The Clash
    Just Like Heaven - The Cure
    Wasting Time (Eternal Summer) - Four Year Strong
    My Friends Over You - New Found Glory
    Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
    We Are Young - fun.
    True Believers - Bouncing Souls
    All the Small Things - Blink 182


    I also really like to listen to classic rock, and sometimes I can be found switching through oldies channels, but I'm much more of a ska/indie/alternative kid. I guess that comes with being born in the 90s roll

      Hi Magician,
        A list of 10 songs! Great!
        Well, time you were born does have a lot to do with your musical tastes.
        Thanks for sharing your 10 travel songs!
        I'l have to listed to a few and see how they sit with me.
        Something to look forward to!

    I usually listen to Radio Cymru when I drive for as long as I can catch it, because I like to practice my Welsh. If I drive out of its range or if I've had enough, I'll put on Radio 3 and hope there will be some good classical music playing. If that doesn't suit, I'll switch off.

    I used to have various CDs in the car with me, but have never sorted them out since I changed cars about 30 months ago. I keep meaning to do so, but other things get in the way.

    When I did have CDs organised, I would keep about 20 in the car and select a couple to play on each trip. After a couple of months, I would shift round to another set of 20. I have a couple of hundred CDs in the house. They mainly consist of classical, baroque, early music, folk and world music.

      I almost picked Out Go the Lights, but I prefer Snortin' Whiskey and Drinkin' Cocaine from Pat Travers.

        Sentimental value to Out Go the Lights for me.
        I agree, tho. Snorting Whiskey, Drinking Cocaine is a better song.
        Maybe we need (not to hijack Claptona's thread or anything smile) a top 10 DRINKING AND DRIVING songs list lol

        One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer -- Thorogood
        If You Don't Start Drinking, I'm Gonna Leave -- Thorogood
        Life By the Drop -- SRV (yes, too much drinking and driving eventually catches up with the best of us smile). RIP Stevie Ray!
