Music is a big part of any road trip, regardless of whether you travelling 50 miles or 5000.

Before every trip I reload my playlist with new tunes and all of them are tailored to the driving spirit. I look for hard and fast rock tunes that are perfect for driving fast to. I also look for songs I can sing along to at the top of my voice when no one can hear me.

There’s also a place for softer tunes that are great for lazy drives when I don’t have to be anywhere quickly. Where I can watch scenery as it goes past and enjoy the wind in my hair.

These are my top five driving songs but, obviously, I have hundreds I could share with you.

  • With legs like that – Zebrahead
    Wanted dead or alive – Bon Jovi
    Tribute – Tenacious D
    We built this city – Starship
    Masterpiece theatre III – Marianas Trench

I also asked on Twitter what your favourite driving songs were. Thank you for your responses. Here’s what you had to say.

I’ll be adding all these songs to my road trip playlist. It’s amazing how a diverse group of┬ápeople can have a very similar idea of what constitutes a god road trip song.

Let me know in the comments what’s on your road trip playlist.
