Best driving songs

BAD CHOICE, BABE: Does your partner play horrible music in the car?

Good music is as important to driving as fuel and inflated tyres. What classifies as good music is, however, subjective and undoubtedly results is passionate debate between driver, passengers and people of different generations.

I certainly struggle to imagine my old man singing along to Rihanna’s Shut Up and Drive, and I can’t picture someone on their P Plates turning up the volume to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama or Take It Easy by the Eagles.

Different tastes lead to different cars and different tunes that come from their speakers.

Then there’s the distance and scenery. Does a drive along the Great Ocean Road call for different beats than the ones suited to a quick run through Sydney’s CBD?

Here’s our list, and as you can see it’s quite a mix.

Life Is a Highway – Tom Cochrane
California – Phantom Planet
Fast Car – Tracy Chapman
Mustang Sally – Wilson Pickett
I’m on Fire – Bruce Springsteen
Jump – Van Halen
Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison
Back In Black – ACDC
Song 2 – Blur
Black Fingernails, Red Wine – Eskimo Joe
Born To be Wild – Steppenwolf
Lonely Boy – The Black Keys
Radar Love – Golden Earring
Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Shut Up and Drive – Rihanna

Whatever your taste, enjoy your music but don’t let it distract you from the dangers of the road.
