Where is summer taking you this summer? Virginia Tire & Auto has complied a list of classic tunes to jam out to while cruising the highway. With these songs, far distances, traffic, construction, weather or other unexpected road trip issues will be a lot more tolerable.
1) “Hit the Road Jack” by Ray Charles
Shouldn’t every road trip start with this song? It’s fun to substitute ‘Jack’ with a fellow road tripper’s name.
2) “Life in the Fast Lane” by The Eagles
This would be funny to sing when stuck in traffic. Might as well offset the traffic stress by daydreaming about ‘a fast lane.’
3) “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC
If you live in the NoVa/DC area, you would probably agree the traffic on 95, 495, 295 and 395 reminds you of a ‘Highway to Hell.’ This should be an anthem for our area!
4) “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into my Car” by Billy Ocean
Taking a road trip with that special someone? Be sure to serenade them with this song. Driving solo? Find someone special to lip synch it to during your travels!
5) “Route 66” by Rolling Stones
This song mentions so many great road trip destinations. Listen and sing along, maybe you’ll be inspired to make an extra stop on your trip!
6) “Shut Up and Drive” by Rihanna
Be sure to show off your confident driving skills by singing this song to your fellow passengers. Just don’t have your feelings hurt if they tell you to “Shut Up and JUST Drive!”
7) “Ridin” by Chamillionaire
This song is pretty funny no matter who you are or how you drive. No one wants to get pulled over by the police.
8) “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton
Have you seen the movie ‘White Chicks’ before? This is the ultimate road trip lip synching song. It’s full of fun, the less words you know, the better it is.

This is the perfect song to get you pumped up to wherever you are heading. It’s gonna be a ton of FUN FUN FUN!
