The Best Driving Songs: What Are They?
Who doesn't love to jam to a good song while driving? It makes the whole driving experience better. Some songs are perfect for giving that little boost of adrenaline and euphoria you can only get when the wind is blowing through your hair, the sun is shining and you're belting out every word of that perfect song. But what songs are the perfect ones?
Insurance.com had a study done to find out which songs are best and worst for driving. The best driving songs lists included...
- 'Don't Stop Believin' by Journey at the #1 spot
- 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen
- 'You Shook Me All Night Long' by AC/DC
- 'Dancing Queen' by Abba
- 'Life Is A Highway' by Tom Cochran
Good driving songs for sure, but maybe you see the problem... not one country song made the list. Tom Cochran's 'Life Is A Highway' is of course the original version of the song Rascal Flatts made famous as well.
In fact the only country singer to make a list at all was Taylor Swift's 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,' which made the worst driving songs list. Personally I don't see the point of that list... I think it's just a list of songs people don't like, because plenty of the entries on it would make perfectly good driving songs.
All of this brings me to our question. What country songs should be on the list? I have a few suggestions to get us started.
- 'Fast Cars and Freedom' by Rascal Flatts
- 'I Love A Rainy Night' OR 'Drivin My Life Away' by Eddie Rabbit
- 'What's It To You' by Clay Walker
- 'Renegades, Rebels and Rogues' by Tracy Lawrence
- 'Sold (The Grundy County Auction Song)' by John Michael Montgomery
- 'That Ain't My Truck' by Rhett Akins
- 'You Look Good In My Shirt' by Keith Urban
- 'The Wind' by Zac Brown Band
There are tons more that would be good, so let us know what you think and add your favorites.
