Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf is the ultimate road trip song. I personally like listening to the Star Wars theme while driving as well as the Imperial March, as it makes everything seem a lot more important, and the march makes you feel like an awesome evil guy. If you like rock, check out the band Cage the Elephant, with their album of the same name, as it's a great listen. If you're really nerdy, download Bedlam Bards' On the Drift album, a tribute to the great prematurely cancelled show Firefly.

Willin' - written by Lowell George. Little Feat probably did the most famous version, especially when he was alive. Linda Ronstadt did a really good version, as did Seatrain. It's been covered by a lot of artists, The Byrds, Phish, Pure Prairie League, Dwight Yoakam, Black Crowes, Brooks and Dunn, etc. Do a search on Youtube to hear a lot of different versions. The best versions are probably live Little Feat shows from the mid to late '70's when Lowell George was still alive. You can find free downloadable versions on the Internet Archive: http://archive.org/details/LittleFeat

Just search for Willin and enjoy.

Wow, someone downvoted my question. I saw it had been asked before, but that was 2 years ago. Oh well. Thanks to those who have answered so far. I really am interested in seeing the responses.

@trekmiss: Yeah, people seem especially mean of late. I saw it had been downvoted, and voted it back up on general principle. It makes me sad when people are pointlessly mean.

So it goes.

Old stuff is what I like when I drive. Give me some Deep Purple, Rainbow, Queen, etc. with songs that I know backwards and forwards.
For example: Since You been Gone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mSkZU8IkjE
Highway Star http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WFLUhSym80
Under Pressure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geY0f6peEtc&feature=related

"Drive By Shooting" by Henrietta Collins and the Wifebeating Childhaters

"Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen and "American Pie" by Don Mclean are both great (and long). I also like "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash. "Margaritaville" and others by Jimmy Buffet are great for driving near the coast. "I Know You're Out There Somewhere" and "The Voice" by The Moody Blues are my favorites for winding mountain roads, particularly at twilight or into the night.

And when I need to just get some miles in but I'm sick of driving, I often turn to Joss Whedon's soundtracks to "Dr Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog" and the Buffy episode "Once More With Feeling" will keep me happily singing for over an hour. Actually, I've been known to put on the video of Dr. Horrible and just listen to the audio. I've seen it enough times that just listening to it is enough for me to enjoy it.

Every time the wife and I get in the car for a road trip we always start off with Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits. First song is Born to Run and couldn't be more perfect. Second song, Thunder Road and then there are the other 16 awesome songs on this album!
