So I'm going to be driving to California in a couple of days, and was wondering, what is CBs favorite driving music?

Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - Wham

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
Jukebox Hero - Foreigner

i always kinda like soundtracks to drive to as you get a variety of artists. some good ones off the top of my head:

rocky horror picture show
the crow
until the end of the world
wild thing
pretty much any john hughes 80's flick (some kind of wonderful, breakfast club, pretty in pink, sixteen canldes, etc.)
to live and die in l.a.
romeo and juliet

Our drives in the UK generally don't last very long! But I did once drive from south to north, which was a journey of about 5 or 6 hours, to a soundtrack of classic 60s Motown. Which worked nicely.

Driving around the Highlands of Scotland to a soundtrack of Orbital's Insides album worked too.

And finally the complete soundtracks of John Williams (Star Wars, Close Encounters, Superman, Harry Potter, ET, Raiders Of The Lost Ark etc etc etc) was the music for a drive around Norway when visiting an old friend.

It's almost always a compilation of Offspring tunes for me :)

I once got a €178 speeding ticket when listening to Underworld. So, I wouldn't recommend that :)

lol, Bart, nice!

I like variety when I drive... last trip had some nickelback, some neil diamond, a couple country songs that hooked me somehow, three doors down, fuel, some instrumentals (Kill Bill trailer theme is gr8)
