From Cam: "Sweet Emotion  or Everlong , but with two pre-teen daughters I suspect this year's road trip will be a lot of.."

From Warren Quin: "This makes me smile and sing along every time." 

From RK: "...where the great plains begin."

From CCM: "Get Your motor running, head out on the highway..."

From Dan: "This is the single greatest song ever written anywhere..."

From GinsuGirl: "This song by Iggy Pop is the best, but way too short. (For a longer drive, I recommend Lemon Jelly or Royksopp, both less aggressive versions of electronic music - stuff that can keep three generations stuck in a car happy.)"
