    All of my favorite songs. Anything on the iPod, any CD's I have. Driving is the only moment when I actually have time to listen to my favorite music.

    I like anything I  can sing along with. Songs with lyrics make my mind work a little harder because I'm concentrating (just a wee bit) on remembering all the lyrics. This helps keep me awake, especially when it's my turn to drive. I like everything from Frank Sinatra to World Music - Jazz, easy listening, pop/rock from the 50s, 60s and 70s, Irish music - they're all good.

    Generally speaking, I do not want music nor any other man-made noise imposing on my road trip. I do road trips to escape from media.

    Allman Brothers always do it f for me!  I do have a great memory of bombing through the outback in Austrlia listening to Crosby, Stills, and Nash though.

    I love classical music because it's relaxing and I can concentrate on the road while I drive.

    I like to listen to anything that is fast and loud to keep me awake on road trips, such as Maroon 5 (Makes Me Wonder), Train (Drive By), and Plain White T's (Make It Up As You Go).

    My favorite lineup of road trip songs is Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits. 

    Homeward Bound
    The Boxer

    Every song on the collection is worthy of the road.

    When it comes to listening to my favorite songs on a road trip, I like variety. If it has a beat, check it is in. I also like japanese anime music. Sure it is in a different language, but we all know music makes it through all barriers. My favorite songs  are in different groups. For instance, Taylor Swift and  Carrie Underwood are in my favorite country song selection. They both have up beat, balls to the wall anthems, and are not afraid to step outside of the box with their song choices. When it comes to rap, it is all about Nicki Manaj. Her lyrics have no real substance, but the song are creative and I like that. As far as Pop, Britney spears still manages to stay on track. I try to act as if it is a party on the road so the music should reflect that.

    i prefer korean songs, usually the Kpop bands such as CNBlue, 2PM, 2AM and Korean dramas OST tracks. I don't listen to English or Chinese songs anymore. Kind of bored. Although i don't understand what the Korean singers are singing about, it's the flow of the music that smooth and ease the mind. Makes my day happy.

    Anything with high energy that I can sing terribly to. Rise Against, Deftones, Distillers, CKY usually do the trick.

    Best Of:

    1) Rise Against- The Good Left Undone
    2) Deftones- Leathers
    3) CKY- Flesh Into Gear
    4) Rise Against- Survivor Guilt
    5) Placebo- Bright Lights

    Even though I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, when I drive along a scenic highway, it's gotta either be Classical or Hard Rock. Bach, Mozart, and Faure are excellent for beach regions while Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers (remember their "Scar Tissue" video?), and now Fall Out Boy's Light 'Em Up are for going fast.

    For me that'd be Road Trippin' - Red Hot Chili Peppers, Riptide - Vance Joy, Switzerland - The Last Bison, something by the Crystal Fighters, a bit You Won't and maye Flume, Glitch Mob and Bakermat.
