The Top 20 Songs for the Road

This is actually a list I made a long time ago - I remember going on a long drive and realizing that I'd brought all the godawful wrong stuff with me. I mean, you dont wanna be pushing the needle beyond the legal limit (is there one?) on the highway with Fur Elise in the background.

Not that I want to be Nicholson's perfectly organized Melvin Udall, but I do believe that one must have a tape full of the perfect driving songs when out on the road. This must be one that you can just play continously for 500 miles (no, its not included) and never get tired of. A big ask, you say? True, but arent there those rollicking numbers you've heard which you say you could hear a 1000 times and it still wont be enough? Something that goes perfectly well with the sense of adventure and the limitless possibilities of the open road?

Not for me those readymade Driving Songs collections. Come rain or shine, sleet or snow, these are the 20 I'd take with me. There might be some I'm forgetting, and to them I apologise.

  1. Passenger – Iggy Pop
  2. Have you ever seen the rain? – Creedence Clearwater Revival
  3. Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
  4. Dreams – Cranberries
  5. Life is a highway – Tom Cochrane
  6. I’ll remember – Madonna
  7. You're the one that I want – Olivia Newton John & John Travolta
  8. Bette Davis Eyes – Kim Carnes
  9. I'm gonna be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers
  10. Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello
  11. She drives me crazy – Fine Young Cannibals
  12. Rotterdam – The Beautiful South
  13. End of the line – Travellin Wilburys
  14. Got my mind set on you – George Harrison
  15. Breakfast at Tiffanys – Deep Blue Something
  16. Buddy Holly – Wheezer
  17. Don’t play your rock and roll to me – Smokie
  18. Fourteen years – Guns n Roses
  19. Daydream believer – The Monkees
  20. Truckin' – The Grateful Dead

  • You have surprisingly good driving-music taste. But how, how could you leave out:

    Don't fear the reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
    Eye in the sky - Alan Parsons Project
    Kyrie Eleison - Mister Mr.
    Clubbed to death - Rob D
    Porcelain - Moby
    Teardrop - Massive Attack
    The blood and tears - Steve Vai

    They will never forgive you.

  • My 'umble suggestions:

    Born to be Wild - Steppenwolf
    Proud Mary - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    In The Shadows - The Rasmus
    Adagio For Strings - Barber
    Ministry of Sound!

    Cham, are you suggesting you expectd any less of Recluse?

    By Blogger blr bytes, at 11:20 AM  

  • We now know how old Recluse really is. Old man :-)

    And Chamique, methinks Massive Attack's 'Angel' is a better driving track then 'Teardrop', nyet?

    By Blogger Dilettante, at 11:23 AM  

  • Chamique: The main idea was to have an upbeat tempo to the numbers - I know one needs to unwind and have some slow stuff when in the hills, and BOC, APP and Mister Mr. would definitely serve that purpose. I dont really listen to Moby or Massive Attack myself - talk about eclectic!

    BB: Dude, Adagio for strings? Did you miss my Fur Elise crack? But think Proud Mary's great. Dont know much about Ministry of Sound -I suspect it is your ringtone.

    Dil: Aw, forget it. I am over the hill.

    My list I was also trying to find a

  • Sorry about that little bit I left hanging above - I just felt that most often one has other people in the car, so a certain bar of popularity might be necessary - therefore, I chose numbers the majority of which the passengers would have heard and liked.

  • Recluse: It's a *very* different version of Adagio For Strings. I think I have it and will send it to you...

    My rington, I'll have you know, is a Hutch original. Moaning and all..

    By Blogger blr bytes, at 2:16 PM  

  • The Truth, dear Recluse, will set you free. And here it is: Given the opportunity to actually, indisputably, send your critics to an early bedtime...given an open highway 'twixt Delhi-Bombay, with the wind tearing through your oily NSync cut, what do you do? Do you play any soul-searing solo riffs? Do you turn up the pounding bass thump of any decent house tracks? No. You put on The Beautiful South. Dream A Li'l Dream. On permanent loop. A barf-bag, a barf-bag, my kingdom for a barf-bag. Or the nearest exit. Being roadkill would be less painful.

    Notwithstanding, you still drive like a dream. Amen.
