    Ok. Summer is here and it's time to roll down the car windows and blast the radio/iPod/cd player with your favorite song to drive to. What is it?

    I would have to say that mine is U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name"

    "Where the Streets Have No Name" is a great one. I also love Muse's "Time Is Running Out" and "Starlight" for driving.

    Also anything by Joan Jett. Good ol rock n roll :)

    There are others, but I can never think of them when I want to.

    "Hard Sun" by Eddie Vedder is a good one to drive to, especially passing the Central Valley farmlands on I-5.

    I also like to listen to Tori Amos's album "Scarlet's Walk" while taking a long drive. She wrote the thing on a cross-country trip across America, anyway. :lol:

    Going Mobile by The Who
    Life is a Highway by Tom Cochrane
    Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses

    I've been in a mellow mood while driving recently so I've had "Feel It All Around" by Washed Out and "Chinatown" by Wild Nothing on constant rotation.

    I got pulled over for speeding listening to Riding the Storm out and told the police officer that I got caught up in the song and had no clue how fast I was going and he let me off with a warning.

    When we head out on the highway for a family trip we all sing along to The JCB Song by Nizlopi.

    Chatahoochie and also When Daddy Let Me Drive by Alan Jackson are fun ones to belt out too.

    If I'm by myself I like to play Emimem's Lose Yourself. It feels very empowering.

    On the Road Again

    My carpool listens to a classic rock station. When they play Werewolves of London, everybody has to howl along. We do get funny looks from other drivers.

    I love driving around with old, classic rock songs. Anything by the Beatles, the Doors, and the Rolling Stones is usually pretty good.

    My friends and I actually drove down the Pacific Coast Highway a few weeks ago, so we picked a lot of California and road-trip related songs. My favorites were "Dani California" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Dashboard" by Modest Mouse, and, once we hit the O.C. (of course), "California" by Phantom Planet.
