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.
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
On the road again... Canned heat!
Roadhouse blues - The doors.
Country Roads - John Denver.
Alive - Pearl Jam.
Spirit in the sky - I forget.
Final Countdown - Europe.
Anything by dire straits or queen!
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."
"Lazy" from Deep Purple
"Rock Star" from Nickelback
"Sailin' Shoes/Hey Hey Julia/Sneaking Sally Through the Alley" from Robert Palmer
Is that 3 songs for your list?
What are the other 7 must haves?
Didn't realize I needed more. Okay, here we go:
"Highway to Hell" from AC/DC
"Call Me the Breeze" from Lynyrd Skynyrd
"Sharp Dressed Man" from ZZ Top
"Hair of the Dog" from Nazareth
"Rock and Roll" from Zep
"Freebird" from Skynyrd
"Blues Power" from Eric Clapton (I heard it today on the air for the first time in years, and it just grabs you if have a pulse.
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.
...oh my...i have quite a collection....rock, hard rock, some lighter stuff, older, newer - various artists
- pink f
- aero smith
- led z
- mumford and sons
- cowboy music too - like ahhh....dwight baby
- and then there's the blues and R&B - the list goes on and on
and my fav of all times...waz his name? oh yeah.......Justin's ABeaver or sumthin' like that
there are so many to list
...i guess it's primarily the older stuff...the classics...
...no hurtin' music, no cheatin' music...no teary eyed music....no luv stuff
primarily anything by incubus and third eye blind but only on a train ride. I fall asleep on driving trips.
ha ha ha...guess you're not driving?
TO... i'm a canuck too!....west coast
hehe no i'm a terrible passenger. But I blame my parents to get me to fall asleep as a baby they would drive me around the block.i'm conditioned.
I'm originally from out west but live in Toronto (go oilers...only when they're winning)
....guess ya don't have to worry about the leafs .....i actually want them to finally win this year....you'll see Greek One around in the forums...he's a big leafs fan (from TO)...i luv teasing him about the leafs
...i'm from Ont....but for several years i'm been on the far, far west coast...on an island now....lived in TO for many years
good to run into ya!
lol...googled the video...i forgot about it...good one!
Never heard that one before - interesting!
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?
"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
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 like to listen to the entire album by Roger Waters: Amused to Death.
Best road trip songs for me. Gotta crank them up to 11
1. Alright Now -- Free
2. Another One Bites the Dust -- Queen
3. Tush -- ZZ Top
4. Don't Sit on my Jimmyshines -- Richard Thompson*
5. Twilight Zone - Golden Earring
6. Boom Boom, Out Go the Lights -- Pat Travers band
7. Keys to the Kingdom - Clapton
8. American Woman -- Guess Who
9. Sweet Jane -- Lou Reed
10. Jacob's Ladder - Bruce Springsteen
*Alternative RT title: 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. We play that one for "Vincent" (the name of our Xterra).
I almost picked Out Go the Lights, but I prefer Snortin' Whiskey and Drinkin' Cocaine from Pat Travers.
BTW, Direct TV shows one of his recent concerts on the AUD channel.
How appearances can deceive - you don't look like a "rock and roller"!
Good pick, by, the way.
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 ) a top 10 DRINKING AND DRIVING songs list
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 ). RIP Stevie Ray!

Does your music taste change depending on your mood?If I'm happy, I like happy music. I love The Beatles, for example. Then, when I'm feeling down, I like to listen to more acoustic music, like David Gray. It's not always the rule, because sometimes I can listen to absolutely anything, from one...

It occured to me the other day that I have a shocking gap in my knowledge. What is it? Apart from a few film themes, I couldn't name a single piece of music composed in the 21st century !!! Not even one! Although I could name a few celebrity pop stars like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Beyonce, I...
