51×8sv6rwcl__aa240_.jpgOk, I am nowhere near Ventura Highway but that is one of my favorite traveling songs (can you name the band?). Planning for this Vegas trip has me thinking of some of my favorite car songs. I am also a big fan of talk radio, or listening to audio books (yes, I know I am a big ol dork!)

I tend to stick to oldies (70’s) myself, with a bit of Chick music thrown in. But I am open to any suggestions!! Whenever Tracy and I would do the long drive thing (before Husbands and Kids), one of our staples was Carole King’s Tapestry – I think because every song is easy to sing to.

I have to confess to another driving favorite – Meatloaf”s “Bat out of Hell” – but I usually save my power ballad fantasies for driving alone 😉 . And I do admit to having a mix cd of all my favorite girls- Gwen, Ashlee, Britney (yes, still!), Shakira, Beyonce – just to get my booty movin a bit (oh, don’t try to tell me you don’t dance in your car 🙂 )

YOUR turn – What is your favorite driving music???

  1. I love and own Tapestry.

    Add some “China Grove” by the Doobies, that seems like a great road song to me, don’t know why.

  2. I loooove Meatloaf! My all-time favorite driving music is Melissa Etheridge, though. Absolutely anything by her gets me singing out loud with the convertible top down!

  3. I am sucker for a good road trip and a good part of that is because I love to blast my music and sing every song at the top of my lungs! I have too many favorites that I like to listen to but I can assure you, Meatloaf’s “I would do anything for love…” is always bound to come on the speakers and usually stays there for about 5 times around. I could sing, “Would you hose me down with holy water if I get too hot…HOT!” over and over again!

  4. I love listening to the Eagles on road trips. I also have mix cds of 70s and 80s tunes that I like to crank up – Wham, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, Dan Fogelberg, Blondie, Bee Gees – yes, I’ll admit it.
    I’ll also admit to loving musicals so I often have a soundtrack or two in the mix, just for kicks.

  5. oooh. America. Horse with no name.
    I saw them twice in concert. Maybe three times. A lifetime ago.

    Bat out of Hell is reserved for intensive housecleaning at our place. With a little duet-ing with the spouse.

  6. Growing up, my Dad always listened to the oldies stations on the radio during road trips. I think that’s why I dig 50’s & 60’s music so much now! If I’m alone in the car, it’s Harry(I’m on a first name basis), Brian Setzer, 80’s pop and various movie/musical Soundtracks. If I’m w/Hubs it’s the occasional 80’s but mostly talk radio or no radio at all. Our musical tastes are SO different.

    All this talk of music and snacks…I’m ready for a road trip!
