The 50 best road trip songs of all time
“Have Love, Will Travel” by the Sonics
At some stage in your life—at any point between getting your driver’s license and getting married, really—you’ll drive from “Maine to Mexico” for a piece of ass, as Gerry Roslie does in this proto-punk classic. The high-tension twang of the guitar sounds like the strings are about to snap, the perfect sonic emulation of sexual frustration. A recent ad for Mexican beer claims you need an “encyclopedic knowledge of garage rock” to pull up this song, as if from some lost, dusty volume. Nah, this is Rock & Roll 101.—Brent DiCrescenzo
I agree with many of the songs, but “Fun, Fun, Fun” by the Beach Boys would have been my number 1. In fact the list looks devoid of any songs from the ‘Car Song’ era.
While driving, I like to listen to “American Band” (Grand Funk Railroad), “Smoke on the Water” (Deep Purple), “Sweet Home Chicago” (Blues Brothers), “Let it Roll” (BTO), and “Convoy” (CW McCall).
Great list! 2 that I didn’t see that are some go-tos: “This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)” by the Talking Heads (yes, I know they made the top 10) and my favorite night driving anthem “How Soon Is Now” by The Smiths. The latter is my “are we there yet. maybe I don’t care because this song is epic”.
