Remember when songs had lyrics? Yeah, those songs. That is what I’m focusing on for now. Specifically, old-school rock (e.g. Queen, Journey, etc.). And these songs are the type of songs that’ll pump you up for driving, or just make you feel happy. So, I introduce you the Top 10 Old-School Songs For Driving…
1. Ram Jam – Black Betty
First of all, I know the lyrics are a bit absurd, but you gotta admit, it’s not all that bad. No matter your song taste, this will energise you at least once.
2. David Bowie – Starman
This song is a great tune, perfect for any kind of driving. This song is one of my favourites, because of the great voice of David Bowie, and the “Road Trip” vibe it gives out.
3. Africa – Toto
Africa is a great song for long road trips, like a long trip to Africa. It sets the tone perfectly, mostly for relaxing driving.
4. Losing My Religion – R.E.M.
Great for any road trip, great for just daily driving. Losing My Religion is just simply a great song in general.
5. In The Air Tonight – Phil Collins
Okay, first of all, let me mention the vibe this iconic song gives off. Imagine yourself driving through the night as you are the only one on the road, what is the first song you think of listening to? Most people, including me, would listen to this.
6. Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
Another great driving song. I’ll be honest, it probably won’t appeal to everyone, but it still doesn’t hurt the fact that it’s a pretty badass song. I really didn’t know Nirvana had enhanced smell…
7. Separate Ways – Journey
Despite the $1 budget music video, it’s still a great song. I know this song isn’t necessarily a driving song, because it has nothing to do with driving. It’s just the great vibe it gives off.
8. Gold – Spandau Ballet
It’s True (Get It?), this song is great, and definitely makes me feel like I’m indestructible, I’m always believin’.
9. Come Sail Away – Styx
A beautiful song, which is about finding happiness. A great song for driving along the seaside, because isn’t that a great setting for this song?
10. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen
The best song to listen to in any type of happy situation. This is also the best driving song because of the happy vibe it gives out. This song shows the consequences of being happy (good consequences). Listen to it, you’ll love it.
