Best traveling and road trip songs

What songs make you long to travel or do you enjoy listening to on the road? Here are a couple of mine:





Note: Inspired by Calgary Girl’s post in bbbamI’s dance song thread. She posted Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway”. I love road songs and this is indeed a great one!

Any thing from Russ Barenburg. He wrote a tune years ago called Flabston and Chubsy Go South (which I cannot find a clip of) but this one is similar..

Good one, Zero. I had not heard of Colin James, but any friend of Stevie Ray is a friend of mine. (Anything by SRV is good road trip music for me...)

But this is my favorite.
