- “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers from Sunshine on Leith (1988) –
Is this guy really going to walk for 1000 miles? Get in the car man; you’ll get there in a fraction of the time. The one-hit wonder from the Scottish duo is a catchy tone that almost everyone knows all the words to.
- “Drive My Car” by The Beatles from Rubber Soul (1965) –
It’s not hard to find a Beatles song on ANY list of Top 10 songs. “Drive My Car” from the Beatles is one of the popular pre-Revolver pop songs from the Beatles. “Drive My Car” is a must-listen on your summer drive.
- “Panama” by Van Halen from 1984 (1984) –
“Panama” is an absolute rock anthem that really gets the blood flowing. From David Lee Roth’s booming voice to the guitar solo and riffs from the legendary Eddie Van Halen. “Panama” is a song about a car beautiful car that can not be beaten in a race. A perfect song to listen to while cruising down the road in your car; just don’t blame us for the speeding ticket you could easily get once this song comes on.
- “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen from A Night at the Opera (1975) –
Is this real life? Is this just fantasy? No, it’s just you jamming out in your car to arguably one of the greatest rock songs of all time. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen starts off slow but finishes strong with a full orchestra (It’s actually just the four members of Queen overlapped to sound like a group of people) and amazing guitar solo.
- “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake from Saints & Sinners (1982) –
One of the biggest hits to come out the hair metal 80’s, “Here I Go Again” is the perfect song if you’re in the mood to just drive somewhere with no destination in mind. Similar to “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Here I Go Again starts off slow and then sweet classic rock smacks you in the face. The song was re-recorded in 1987 to replace the word “hobo” with “drifter” in the chorus.
