Thread: Road Music

    Default Road Music

    Post your favourite road music.

    Kingfisher got me thinking about this when he posted this Steppenwolf song. I knew this guy that played this every time we travelled. He was a funny guy, really relaxed, would almost put his feet up and have a sleep as he drove.

    This song always reminds me of travelling. For two reasons, the lyrics and the time I had the cassette on a trip and ended up leaving it in a hotel on a long road trip.

    Here to me is the classic road song.

    this song doesn't talk about the road, but i love listening to it v loud in my car en route to the beach. it builds to a cool momentum and then eases and then....bam bam again.

    The original idea was to post travel songs that you associate with somewhere. Here is an Aussie track that I associate with taking off to hitchhike up north in NZ.

    Play the bottom one and mute it. Then play the track for an immersion in audio and visuals.
