What's in your road trip play list?

For me there is nothing like being on the road heading to a new adventure and having great tunes to help get you there. I am curious to hear what others have in their road trip play list. I lean toward classic rock and currently have about 7 hours of music in my road trip playlist. Everything from the great sing-along classic; Willin' by Lowell George of Little Leat to the classic head-banging-drive-faster Highway Star by Deep Purple. Lots of mine have “the road” incorporated into the lyrics but some are just great tunes.

What are some of your favorites?

Here are some of mine in no particular order...
Low Rider – War
On the Road Again – Willie Nelson
Going Mobile – The Who
Rockin' Down the Highway – Doobies
Start Me Up – Rolling Stones
Call Me the Breeze – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Sailin' Shoes – Little Feat
Willin' – Little Feat
Ants Marching – Dave Matthews Band
Riding With The King – John Hiatt
La Grange – ZZ Top
Spirit In The Sky – Norman Greenbaum
Cruisin' – Smokey Robinson
Already Gone – Eagles
Midnight Rambler – Rolling Stones
Magic Bus – The Who
Drive South – John Hiatt
Friend of the Devil – Grateful Dead
Expressway to Your Heart – Soul Survivors
Take Me To The River – Talking Heads
City of New Orleans – Willie Nelson
Six Days on the Road – Taj Mahal
Up Around the Bend – Creedence
Thunder Road – Bruce Springsteen
Road to Nowhere – Talking Heads
Proud Mary – Ike & Tina Turner
Why Don't We Do It In The Road – Beatles
Driving Wheel – Al Green

When I had the class A I had to turn up the volume too high. Could not hear myself think, or wife talk, so no radio. Now we have a truck/trailer, and would rather not have the radio on, & have to listen to all the useless jibber-jabber. We have listened to audio tapes on occasion. Prefer that to music, but I have listened to "country" all my life. Todays "country" is so different, that I just turn it off. I miss J. Cash, G. Jones, M. Robbins, etc. etc.

Tom, I totally agree with you about the radio, between the endless commercials and the DJ's that feel like they are entertainers but have nothing to say worth listening to, I never turn the darn thing on. For me that is the beauty of having a phone or iPad that holds all of my music and I can play whatever I want through the coach sound system without any interference.

Also agree with you about Mr. Cash and Jones... got them in my music library too along with lots of other classic and contemporary country. What would be some of your favorite country tunes to listen to while driving?

Like you list. We love to listen to our XM radio to Old Country, 50s and 60s, all without commercials. No channel trying to locate a station. We mix it up with talk as well.

This a video someone posted on Youtube of a roadtrip they were on.

If you watch closely you can go on Google maps and almost follow their whole trip by watching the road signs.

They covered the western states and part of Canada as far as I can tell. Liked the music.

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

I must start with Lyle Lovett, whom no one above has on their list. Then I listen to almost all of the above listed country artists.

400 songs everything from Andre Bocelli, George Gershwin, Eagles, Stones, George Jones, to ZZTop. Recently drove from Seattle to Marysville Ohio and did not hear one repeat and loved every song. iTunes is my sanctuary when on the road I have very divergent taste and just love music.

I see some posted I will add, first thing tomorrow.

I do all my own stunts
