Without further ado, here are our favorite songs to sing as we hit the roads this summer:
Runnin’ Down A Dream – Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers – Full Moon Fever (1989)
After the sudden passing of the legendary Thomas Earl Petty last October, many of us rekindled our love for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. With a catalog of hits that can go on and on, Runnin’ Down A Dream was made to be listened to behind the wheel. The infectious guitar chords combined with Petty’s soft-spoken lyrics help make the perfect match.
Born To Run – Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run (1975)
While Springsteen’s Born To Run is a great tune for summer vacations far and wide, it is even better when traveling through the home state of the Boss. The title track off of Springsteen’s third album is arguably one of his most iconic tunes to date. The love letter lyrics lined with a rebellious attitude helps make the freedom of the open road even more enjoyable.
Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf – Steppenwolf (1969)
There is a reason why we go back all the way to the 60’s for this tune. Born To Be Wild, from the band’s debut album, has been synonymous with bikers and road trip enthusiasts for decades. This song is sure to bring out the nostalgia as your tear down the highway with the smell of the ocean growing near. The hit track helped propel the Canadian-American rock group to superstardom for the rest of the 20th century.
Take Me Home Country Roads – John Denver – Poems, Prayers & Promises (1971)
Midnight Rider – Allman Brothers Band – Idlewild South (1970)
Running On Empty – Jackson Browne – Running on Empty (1977)
Here I Go Again – Whitesnake – Saints & Sinners (1982)
