Four fave tracks, all with that unmistakable road vibe:Neil YoungNeil Young Crime in the cityAl Di Meola
I don't know if I'd recommend driving to this track, you'd probably overspeed before long, but it makes amazing listening (and watching!) and really has a feeling of journey to it. Killer track.Al Di Meola - Race With Devil On Spanish Highway/Jumpin' Jack FlashKent
- This one is definitely a track made for driving - and it is
about driving, driving at night with the one you love. Kent have grown to be one of the biggest rock bands of Sweden over the last fifteen years, and this 2002 single gives an idea why they have a big following.
The title, according to the band, was an abbreviation of "Franska Flickan" (The French Girl) aiming at French singer Nancy Danino who provides some backing vocals, but it could also be read as "FöräldraFritt" (Out of sight of parents).Kent - FF
Kent/ FF - lyrics
White fleeting lights,
just stars between the treetops.
I can see dark houses
and highways, railroads, poles.
on bridges and through cities
And for your sake
we're on the road again
Counting days as years come in
a whiff of the sun, the scent of spring
and soon the rain comes pulling in
to sweep away
Everything that ain't the music
(French, girl's voice:) So far from this world
You fall asleep,
your head against the window
and at your cheek
the haze fluttering like a dream.
I had to blink -
Tears are not my thing, you know,
but for you, babe
I will do anything
(in French, spoken:) I've lost my bearings
I'm swimming in troubled water.
Take me as far away as possible.
The landscapes gliding by,
the morning fog dispersing -
Thanks to you, I am breathing again.
So far from this world
