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, claptona
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.
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.
...oh my...i have quite a collection....rock, hard rock, some lighter stuff, older, newer - various artists
- zztop - pink f - jimi - jim - marley - aero smith - led z - megadeth - acdc - csny - mumford and sons - stones - cowboy music too - like ahhh....dwight baby - and then there's the blues and R&B - the list goes on and on

...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
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?
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
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! Cheers
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.
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).
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!
Ok, I'll try it again 1-Respect Aretha Franklin 2-Unchained melody The Rightous Brothers 3 Settin on the Dock of the Bay Ottis Reddin 4-For the good times Al Green 5- You Dont Know Me Ray Charles 6- My Girl- The Temptations 7- Hold on, I'm Comming Sam and Dave 8-You Send Me Sam Cook 9- A Change is Gonna Come Sam cook 10-Smoke gets in your eyes The platers
Magic Carpet Ride Bad to the Bone I Drink Alone Tommy Spirit in the Sky I Won't Back Down Little Old Lady from Pasedena I've Got the Biggest Balls of All Momma's got a SqueezeBox The New Mother Nature American Woman
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...
