I wonder how many people out there have their own lists of songs that are car specific. By the way, I hope your life isn’t as bad as to find Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take the Wheel” absolutely necessary to listen to. If your life is in such dire straits, I recommend turning the radio off and putting yourself in the company of your best friends.
Just a few off the top of my head:
- Fountains of Wayne – 92 Subaru (you could also pick Survival Car)
- BT – Ride
- Gary Numan – Cars
- The Beach Boys – I Get Around (also, many other songs to pick from The Beach Boys)
- Cake – Stickshifts and Safteybelts (a few others by Cake that are car specific or use cars as metaphors)
