Do you mean songs that simply have cruising or driving around themes that we think are the best works (i.e. songs about cruising or driving), or do you mean songs that we personally like to listen to as we are actually out on the road driving (i.e. songs that go well with the act of driving)?

Songs that just seem to be great to listen to while driving. It's hard to explain, but some tracks I just can't imagine listening to anywhere but the car.

To me, driving songs are the ones where you automatically crank up the volume (radio and lungs) or try to resist playing air guitar (because you've got to drive the car)

Your Mama Don't Dance - Loggins and Messina
Footloose - Kenny Loggins
She's So High - Tal Bachman
Smooth - Rob Thomas and Santana
Radar Love - Golden Earring
Twilight Zone - Golden Earring (I always enjoy seeing how far I've driven from the beginning to end, practically to the state line!)
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who (same concept)
Owner of A Lonely Heart - Yes
Sing a Song - Earth Wind and Fire
Mercy Mercy Me - Marvin Gaye (put on the cruise and enjoy the ride)
Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffett (you're already at your destination sipping a blended double berry)
Two Tickets To Paradise - Eddie Money
Key West Intermezzo - John Mellencamp (sense a theme here?)
Lonely Ol' Night - John Mellencamp
Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan (once heard this while driving into Duluth, very cool)
Thank God I'm a Country Boy - John Denver
Rocky Mountain High - John Denver (a must if you're traversing Pikes Peak)
Piano Man - Billy Joel
One Toke Over the Line - Brewer and Shipley

And the number one, grand poobah:
Takin' Care of Business - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
