View Full Version : Your Top 10 'Driving' Songs

04-02-2012, 11:54 PM
I posted something in another thread concerning one of the Eagles songs being in a random top 10 list of great songs to listen to while driving, then I thought it might be fun and interesting if we all put our own little top 10 lists together.

So, what gets you revved up the most when you get behind the wheel??? :grooving:

I'm going to just start my list and come back and add to it or edit, as I figure them out:

Already Gone - Eagles
Paradise City - Guns 'N Roses
Take It Easy - Eagles
Highway To Hell - AC/DC
Slow Ride - Foghat
Radar Love - Golden Earring
Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf
Dr Feelgood - Motley Crue
Roadhouse Blues - The Doors
Panama - Van Halen
Low Rider - War

(I know, that's already 11. I don't do well with instructions!) :sigh:

Take It Easy - Eagles
Life In The Fast Lane - Eagles
