Favorite "Driving" Songs
« on: December 12, 2011, 11:59:14 PM »

What are some of your favorite "Driving" songs, that is, songs that specifically mention driving. One of my current favorites is Big Foot, by Chickenfoot:

Don't you worry, it's gonna be allright
I'm in a hurry, gonna drive all night
I'll be there in the morning, you can bet your ass
I got both hands on the wheel, and my big foot on the gas

A couple other favorites of mine include "Drive" by Incubus and "I Can't Drive 55" by Sammy Hagar.

I played "I Can't Drive 55" the first time I drove on the Intercounty Connector in Maryland. Seemed appropriate.

Some others that come to mind:

—Back when I was in law school, I was heading back down for the spring semester one year and as I turned onto I-95 in Springfield, VA, I turned on the radio just in time for the opening chords of "Highway to Hell" to come on. Seldom have I heard a more appropriate driving song for a particular occasion. Technically it doesn't really "mention" driving per se, but I figure it's close enough.

—"Motorway" by the Kinks.

—"Wreck on the Highway" by Springsteen (final song on the River album). Also, if sitting in a car at the end of a date counts as close enough to driving for this poll, "I'm Goin' Down" by Springsteen (off the Born in the USA album); I've always loved the lyric "You let out one of your bored sighs."

—"Drive" by the Gaslight Anthem. These guys are easily my favorite new band of the last few years. I highly recommend all their music.

No mention of Steppenwolf's "Born to be wild" or Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"? ;)

Well, the song is named "Motorway."

I love the lyrics, too. "You've never seen loos like motorway loos, thousands of people passing through. It's enough to put you off of that motorway food."

Most obvious choice should be Kraftwerk's Autobahn.
Personal favorite of mine would be Departure from REM's New Adventures in Hi-Fi.

Wow ftballfan, imho you have excellent taste in music!!
Most of your list was recorded/popular music before you were even born, did your parents or grandparents turn you onto this great music? I'd be interested in how you discovered this music, I mean the Outlaws are pretty far from main stream music and for someone your age to appreciate their great music is awesome!

A few more of my favs
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody  
Deep Purple - Burn
Carlos Santana - Everything he plays
Bachman Turner Overdrive - Lets Roll (Down the Highway)
Grateful Dead - Truckin
Jackson Brown - Loadout/Stay
I can still recall the 1st time I heard BoRhap in 1976, it was 3a.m. and I was delivering newspapers by car when a Philadelphia FM station began the 3 o'clock hour playing BoRhap without ANY introduction at all, IT WAS AWESOME, I couldnt even drive the car, I pulled off and enjoyed it and spent the rest of the nite searching for another station to play it again. Freddy Mercury at his best imo!

Green Grass and High Tides is a most excellent tune, as is Roll With the Changes.

I applaud your taste in music.

I have too many favorite 'driving' songs to list.  Many of them go with certain places; I listen to more 1970s Elton John than anything else while driving in Pennsylvania, for instance.

I have to watch what I listen to as well if driving a car that doesn't have cruise control.  Blackfoot - Train, Train as well as The Doors - L.A. Woman will have me doing triple-digits if I'm not careful.  The worst part of that?  I start wondering "hey, why are all these people going so slow all of a sudden?" :D

I think I once did 82mph through the East LA Interchange when that Doors song came on. 

(82 isn't objectively that fast, but there's a 35 curve in there on 5 southbound!)

My bad. The thread topic is "driving songs" NOT "driving movies".
Agreed,  "Convoy" is a fun driving song.

at the risk of falling victim to troll bait ... the only versions I've ever heard are Skynyrd, and Metallica et al (I forget who the guest artists are on the Garage Inc. track, but Jerry Cantrell comes to mind, perhaps even accurately)
