    Fellow Fanatics,

    I’m soon going to be doing a long drive, around 12 hours!!!! I will need something to do in that time. I started to make a few CD’s and found only around 10 really good driving songs in my collection. So any suggestions, basically whats your favourite driving songs and why???

    I dont mind what genre, either Rock, Dance, Old School……. anything

    Ill get the wheel rolling…(I’m clearly rock biased haha)

    Steppenwolf – Born to be Wild (classic)

    Metallica – Fuel

    ACDC – Highway to Hell

    For me, the best song I’ve heard whilst on the road is Bon Jovi’s Have a Nice Day.

    I like it, slow, catchy, classic, sounds like it would be the background music in a movie during a meaningful car scene haha thanks

    Tom Petty’s 2006 album “Highway Companion” is, appropriately, a great listen when you’re on the road, I reckon.

    One of the very worst which was always on the car when I was a kid was the one that goea “wherever you go always take the weather with you” I hated it especially as in the North East it’s always chucking it down!

    I haven’t driven in a while but mostly I used to love to listen to the sound of the engine. I’m not a big fan of Snow Patrol or Coldplay but I’ve always found their songs quite mellow and relaxing to drive to. I don’t like to have mad songs I’ll sing along to because then I’ll get carried away and crash :P

    Once when driving through a glorious snow blanketed Cornish valley, the sun was setting and Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ came on my iPod. I cranked up the volume and it was honestly one of the most epic things ever.

    If you’re on B-Roads then some classical music can work a treat. Verdi’s ‘Anvil Chorus’, Bizet’s ‘Au Fond du Temple Saint’ and Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ are regular driving music for me.

    Other great driving songs I love:

    Matt Monro – On Days Like These (watch out for the tunnels with this one though :P)

    Led Zeppelin – Communication Breakdown

    The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again

    Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mich and Tich – Hold Tight!

    Muse – Hysteria

    T-Rex – 20th Century Boy

    Molly Hatchet – Flirtin’ With Disaster

    The Skids – Into the Valley

    Tom Robinson Band – 2-4-6-8 Motorway (Bit of cheese there)

    David Bowie – Suffragette City
