Road Songs

Mon Dec 11, 2006 4:55 am

In light of the "Classic Rock" thread...

I ask you, the facetious psychotic non-av crowd, for your all-time favorite road songs. I'm going home next Thursday for the Christmas break, and it's a good 4 hour drive. I'm tired of all the CDs I have, and am kind of at a loss for what I want and don't want to burn. Give me your best shot...
This isn't where I parked my car...

Shame on me for this one, but... uhm... driving home for Christmas with a friend who was offering me lift, which also took about four hours, I got to like "Driving Home for Christmas" by Chris Rea. The radio played it and both her and me instantly started laughing.  Smile

Speaking objectively (  Wink ), I'd say all of my band's songs are good.
