I love listening to music while I’m on the go, but some music just makes for a better travel companion than others. This post is on my top picks of songs that make me want to hit up highways in a car with an open top. It just makes me wish that I actually had a car, lol.
Rascal Flatts – Fast Cars and Freedom
This song just makes we want to hop into car and drive along desert roads of the old Route 66. It just does.
Rod Stewart – I Know I’m Losing You
I love the gritty feel of this song. It has a great build up and a great solo to top it off as well.
LeAnn Rimes – Can’t Fight the Moonlight
THE I’m-hanging-out-with-my-girls and I’m singing at the top of my lungs type song.
Deanna Carter – Strawberry Wine
Ah something a bit more romantic. Ultimate summer love song and it’s country. Country music has always made for the best road trip music.
Robbie Williams – Me and My Monkey
Because it is about a road tip. To Vegas. With a Monkey. Nuff said.
America – Ventura Highway
I just love how laid back this song is and the harmonies are great too. It reminds me of watching sunsets while drinking beers and just having a laid back evening.
Canned Heat – On the Road Again
Another classic song! I guess this has to be the ultimate road trip song ever.
Johnny Cash – Further on Up the Road
I can’t remember whether I’ve posted this before, but this song is too brilliant not to post another time. Originally by Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen, but I love this version so much better. Johnny Cash is also a must have for any road trip.
Bobby Blue Bland – Farther Up the Road
Apart from country, I guess blues makes a good second as road trip music. This oldie by Bobby Blue Bland is perfect, just don’t get confused thinking it’s the same song as the one above it. It’s not!
King Curtis – Memphis Soul Stew
This may not be blues, but it definitely gets you going and keeps you going and it makes you hungry if you’re not careful. Other for more road, for more music, or for actual food.
What are your ultimate road trip songs?
