Songs About Cars

Cars and music go hand in hand. In fact, one of the best things about driving is that we get to do it while listening to our favorite tunes. Don’t believe me? Pay attention the next time you’re getting in your vehicle. One of the first things we instinctively do right after getting in is adjust the stereo.

We’re a nation that loves to drive and loves to listen to music. So, it’s only natural that there have been a lot of songs written about cars and driving. Some songs reference specific vehicles, like Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” Some are about the joy of driving, like Sammy Hagar’s “I Can’t Drive 55.”
