A Little Travellin' Music, Please
My sister and her girlfriend are moving across the country to join a commune (as you do). They're leaving at the beginning of January and driving (!!) from Massachusetts to northern California. In order to minimize the amount of posessions they're going to have to schlep with them, they've asked to not get Christmas presents this year and instead have requested cds. I'm going to burn them a boxed set of cool travelling tunes.
So what I want from you, dear internets, is a list of your five (or 10) favourite driving songs. The ones that keep you up as you're driving across the prairies. The ones that chill you out when you're stuck in rush hour traffic in an unfamiliar city. The ones that make you roll down your window and let the wind blow....oh, wait. There's one song.
Here's a few I've picked, just to get things started:
1. Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen
2. Song 2 - Blur
3. Running Down A Dream - Tom Petty
4. I Drove All Night - Roy Orbison
5. One Step Beyond - Madness
6. Hit The Road, Jack - Ray Charles
7. Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC
8. California Dreamin' - The Mamas and The Papas
9. Are You Gonna Be My Girl? - Jet
10. Peaches - Presidents Of The United States Of America
