The 50 best road trip songs of all time

Don’t get us wrong—we love the city. But sometimes you get that itch to escape for a while, and the lazy, hazy days of summer are the perfect time to embark on that classic American tradition: the road trip. Of course, you can’t drive in complete silence—well, you can, but the very thought of that is giving us a flat tire—so we’ve compiled our list of the best road trip songs to get your motors running and kick your highway journey into high gear. Whether you’re venturing on a weekend getaway, driving through the night to get to your sweetie or ambitiously tackling a cross-country trip across all 50 states, we have the tunes to keep your engines purring. You can crank up classics from the Boss and the Dead, perfect pop from Prince, blasts from your ’90s past courtesy of Sheryl Crow, and of course, songs about America. So grab your keys, call up a few of your favorite travel buddies, roll down the windows, and crank up the dial. Road trip!Written by Michael Chen, Brent DiCrescenzo, Adam Feldman, Sophie Harris, Nick Leftley, Tim Lowery, Marley Lynch, Hank Shteamer, Carla Sosenko and Kate Wertheimer.
