Start Your Engine!

Americans have a love affair with their cars. On average, we spend 101 minutes each day driving. Cars mean freedom and independence. They connect us with adventure, they take us to work, to the mall, and to the doctor's office. Cars are an extension of ourselves whether we keep them shiny and spotless or carelessly toss used fast food bags in the back seat.

Regardless of what car you own—a minivan, a sedan or a hot rod—celebrate our grand love affair with the automobile with a customized playlist about cars and driving. Here's a long list of pop, rock and country songs to get you started.

1. "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car" by Billy Ocean

Imagine being the woman in this 1988 song who is the target of the narrator's hooting and hollering. She's on the side of road minding her business, and the driver yells, "Hey (hey) you (you), get in to my car!" She asks, "Who me?" and our narrator replies, "Yes you, get in to my car!"

Now seriously, if any stranger shouted at me like that, I'd get his license plate and and run in the other direction. But this was the 1980s, and Billy Ocean continued flirting with his new gal pal. He invited her to get into his back seat. Then he turned his attentions to a lady driver and made some suggestive remarks about touching his bumper.

Sheesh! Put the brakes on, fella. Sounds like someone needs a long drive through a cold car wash.

Approximately 84% of Americans travel to work in a private automobile.

2. "Little Red Corvette" by Prince

Because the Corvette is known for its speed and for its great looks, it was a natural pick for the narrator of this song in recounting his one night stand with a gorgeous, promiscuous woman. He uses the car metaphor to depict his lover's wanton ways and to caution her about her risky behavior:

I say little red Corvette, baby, you're much too fast
Little red Corvette, you need a love that gonna last. ...

He also alludes to horsepower and mentions keys and gas. This 1983 song is one of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Sales of the song spiked again after Prince's tragic death in 2016.

3. Life Is a Highway by Tom Cochran

This 1991 hit compares life to a wide-open and bendy road. The guy in the song realizes that the sun is setting all too soon, and he's intent on taking to the open road, preferably with some fun-loving company:

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long.

The age of the average American automobile is now more than 10 years old. Many are not as beautiful or well cared for as this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro.

4. "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen

In the "don't try this at home" category there's this classic 1975 hit about joyriding. It's from his album of the same name that is one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. A young lover glorifies racing down the highway way too fast and taking risks that he knows could result in tragedy.

5. "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson is most widely associated with this country cross-over 1980 hit; it won a Grammy Award and was named one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The song is delightfully simple and is about a group of musician friends who live on the road. On tour, they sing their songs then pack it up and drive on down the highway to their next gig.

What a gorgeous pink Cadillac.  Mary Kay Ash, founder of the cosmetics brand, started a tradition in 1969 of awarding pink Cadillacs to top sales performers.

6. "Pink Cadillac" by Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole nails this 1988 hit, originally sung by Bruce Springsteen. In the song, the narrator loves her honey for his pink Cadillac, complete with crushed velvet seats that tempt anyone to want to climb in the back and test them out. Some people claim the Cadillac is a car that's too old or a gas guzzler, but she likes that it's one that's large enough to have a party in.

7. "Maybellene" by Chuck Berry

This 1955 tune was the first hit for rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry. It tells the story of a lovesick man who is driving a V8 Ford. He's in hot pursuit of his cheating girlfriend who is in a Cadillac Coupe DeVille.

8. "The Corvette Song (The One I Loved Back Then)" by George Jones

George Jones was nicknamed "The Possum" because he allegedly looked like one from the side with his beady eyes. In 1985, The Possum gifted country music this fun song. It was about a man who stopped by a convenience store for some beer and cigarettes and began a conversation with the store cashier.

The cashier covets what the narrator has and recounts that he had one just like her in 1963 before the man at the bank took her away. The narrator assumes they are discussing the man's Corvette:

Oh, she was hotter than a two dollar pistol
She was the fastest thing around.
Long and lean, every young man's dream
She turned every head in town.
She was built and fun to handle, son.
I'm glad that you dropped in
She reminds me of the one I loved back then.

When the Corvette owner offers the cashier the keys for a quick spin around the block, the cashier explains that it's not the Corvette he covets but the brunette in the passenger side.

9. "I Can’t Drive 55" by Sammy Hagar

Back in 1985 when Federal law forbade speed limits above 55 mph, this song lamented a lead-footed driver's inability to comply. He's taking his chances because he's got a need for speed.

He might get an expensive traffic ticket or his license may be revoked, but he doesn't care. This guy is riding risky, pedal to the metal.

10. "Born to be Wild" by Hinder

This 1968 classic is a timeless celebration of youth, risk taking and the adventure of driving on a wide open highway. It's one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, originally recorded by Steppenwolf but admirably remade by Hinder in 2005.

11. "White Walls" by Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis (featuring Schoolboy Q & Hollis)

The narrator in this 2013 song is going total old school in his off-black Cadillac, tricked out with a brand new paint job and white walled tires. He cruises through town then speeds in and out of traffic in his souped-up convertible that he's poured both his money and his heart into. Look at all those heads turn this way.

Distracted driving is any activity that could take your attention away from your main focus:  the road.  Examples: texting, using a cell phone, talking to passengers, eating and drinking, grooming, reading, using a navigation system or radio.

12. "Cars" by Gary Numan

The man in this 1979 song describes his car as his sanctuary from the world. He seems to be having some problems coping and retreats to the security of his car where he can think better.

13. "Fun, Fun, Fun" by The Beach Boys

This 1964 Beach Boys classic is about a teenage girl who borrowed her dad's car under the pretense of going to the library. Instead of studying, she used the car for cruising and hot rod racing. Her old man found out, however, and took the keys away. The song's narrator celebrates that he's coming to her rescue, offering to let her ride in his car.

14. "Cruisin'" by Smokey Robinson

This sensual song from 1979 describes riding around the streets with a love partner with no particular destination. Together, they appreciate good music and each other, passing the time in each other's company.

15. "You Can Sleep While I Drive" by Melissa Etheridge

Ready for a road trip, the narrator in this 1989 song has a full tank of gas in her convertible and enough money for a little adventure. She seeks to explore the open road in search of a destination she's never been before and encourages her sweetheart to come along for the ride.

16. "Drive" by The Cars

The narrator in this 1984 song perceives himself to be the steadiest, most reliable influence in his friend's life, and he's using example to try to convine his friend of that. He asks the friend rhetorical questions about who is going to do specific things for them, such as

  • tell you when it's too late
  • pick you up when you fall
  • pay attention to your dreams
  • hold you down when you shake
  • gonna come around when you break
  • drive you home tonight.

While at first blush the song might seem to be one of friendship, closer examination reveals it's an issue of one person's control over another. The narrator/driver is in the "driver's seat" of the relationship and of the friend's life.

17. "Mercedes Benz" by Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin recorded this 1970 a cappella song three days before her death by heroin overdose. It was released the following year. The song takes a jab at consumerism, as the narrator asks God to buy her an expensive car, a color TV, and a night on the town.

Joplin famously drove a used 1965 Porsche 356c Cabriolet that she paid one of her roadies $500 to paint with a psychadelic mural.

18. "Slow Ride" by Foghat

This hard rock song from 1975 is now used in commercial contexts and as background music on both video games and television shows. If you listen to its lyrics, however, you'll find a song with sexually suggestive double meanings:

Slow down, go down, got to get your lovin' one more time
Hold me, roll me, slow ridin' woman you're so fine.

19. "Trans Am" by Thompson Square

Fast, loud and good-looking: that's the Trans Am. In this 2015 country song, a Trans Am owner invites his girlfriend to take a spin:

Girl let’s fly, jump inside, take a ride in my Trans Am
Hammer down, cruise around, rock this town in my Trans Am
Everybody wants to ride, hey, everybody wants to ride, hey
Girl, you know you wanna ride, take a ride in my Trans Am.

20. "Radar Love" by Golden Earring

The guy in this 1973 song has been driving all night to get back home to his beloved. This was back before cell phones were technologically available to the masses, so he can only communicate with her with a mysterious thing called "radar love."

Americans drive an average of 101 minutes each day. In an average lifetime, an American spends 37,935 hours driving a car.

Questions & Answers

Question: What are some country songs about car troubles?

Answer: Here are a few for you:

1) "The Talkin' Song Repair Blues" by Alan Jackson (2005)

2) "Bad Car" by Terri Clark (2014)

3) "I'd Sure Hate to Break Down Here" by Trace Adkins (2003) -- also by Julie Roberts (2004)

4) "Dad's Old Number" by Cole Swindell (2018)

5) "Hello, I'm Gone" by Trisha Yearwood (1996)

6) "Used Cars" by Sunny Sweeny (2014)

Question: What song has the words, "To get the traction / I'm riding the clutch / My fuel injector's screaming / My machine's too much?"

Answer: I think this is the song you want: "Shut Down" by The Beach Boys (1963). Your lyrics don't 100% exactly match this song, but it's so close that this must be it:

But my fuel injected Stingray's really startin' to go

To get the traction I'm ridin' the clutch

My pressure plate's burnin' that machine's too much

Pedal's to the floor hear the dual quads drink

(Oooo pump it up now)

And now the four-thirteen's lead is startin' to shrink ...

Here's the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pYU0p6WZhU

Question: What’s the song about a racing driver who dies?

Answer: Here's the song you're probably referring to: "Jerry Was a Racecar Driver" by Primus (1991). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBQ2305fLeA

Hope this was helpful!

Question: Are there any Christmas songs about cars?

Answer: Yes, here are a few:

1) "Santa Drives a Hot Rod" by Brian Setzer & The Brian Setzer Orchester (2002) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUi3-XAXIdU

2) "Hot Rod Sleigh" by Toby Keith (1995) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IormfuUWkzE

3) "Little Saint Nick" by The Beach Boys (1964) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSynDh_K0EE

4) "Rusty Chevrolet" by Da Yoopers (1987) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeZ0BUc3kMw

5) "Driving Home for Christmas" by Chris Rea (1988) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDt3u2Ev1cI

Also, note that R.L. Cherry rewrote many of the classic Christmas songs to have automotive twists. His "Hot Rodded Christmas Songs" include "Cruisin' In a Winter Wonderland," "Deck the Rod," "I'm Dreaming of a White T-Bird," "I Saw Mommy Racing Santa Claus" and more.

Hope this helped! Merry Christmas!

Question: What song includes the lyrics "fast car and a pretty wife"?

Answer: Take a look at the 2002 song called "Normal Life" by July for Kings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGnCljQO0rk. The part of the song with that has those lyrics is as follows:

Now I just want to live a normal life

Get a fast car and a pretty wife

We could have children of our own

Settle down here until they're grown

We could buy a house out on the beach

And just die there, out of reach

Do you want to live

Do you want to live

Do you want to live a normal life with me?

Angel75c on August 04, 2020:

Numbers 104 and 114 are the same song.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 22, 2020:

Candy - It was a novelty song that was called "Beep Beep" by The Playmates (1958) in the US but because brand names were not permitted at the time in the European market, it was re-recorded for that market and thus known colloquially as "The Bubble Car Song."

CANDY on June 21, 2020:

FAMOUS SWEENY DJ ONCE ASKED OVER THE RADIO, DOES ANYONE KNOW THE SONG WAY BACK 50s "the little bubble car goes squeak, squeak squeak or "the little bubble car goes round and round". Me and 2 brothers in early 50s went round and round a chair, as it got faster and faster. Cant remember who sang it. Foind ine similar anout a cadalac but not same...was a bubble car.

MG - Wow, a fleet of cars! That is impressive.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on May 07, 2020:

Flourish, I have a fleet of cars and love cars and driving. This selection is after my heart

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 07, 2020:

Peggy - My mother still hasn't caught on to the fact that she needs an SUV because of the height, but when my dad had surgery on his back he understood! Maybe it's because she's so short and he's so tall.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 07, 2020:

Like you, we have never had flashy cars, and also like you, those low to the ground ones would be hard to get in and out of these days. Ha!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 29, 2020:

Peggy - Some of us like functional and dependable cars like me and others enjoy the flashy, showy kind. I've always wished I could drive the latter (like a Corvette), but I think I've waited so long it's not a good idea. Might be hard to hard to get out of, as they are often lower to the ground and more cramped. And I drive very carefully. I can eat least enjoy the songs. Glad you are also enjoying them.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 29, 2020:

As large as our country is, and as spread out as it is, it is no wonder that we love our cars. There were many good songs on this list.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on February 05, 2020:

MrLister - Thanks for the suggestions. I added Rapid Roy here and Speedball Tucker to the Spinditty playlist about Trucks and Trucking.

MrLister on February 04, 2020:

Jim Croces Speedball Tucker AND Rapid Roy (That Stock Car Boy) are both worthy inclusions to this list.

LaustCawz - Thanks for the suggestions. Never able to get a driver's license?

LaustCawz on January 07, 2020:

One more I forgot: "Drive"--Todd Rundgren

LaustCawz on January 07, 2020:

Flourish Anyway--How 'bout "Baby Driver"--Simon & Garfunkel; also, the theme song in the first & third seasons of TV's "Hardcastle McCormick" is called "Drive", I think. The song is by Mike Post & Pete Carpenter, I believe, but I don't recall the singer offhand. It starts: "Drive! Push it to the floor 'til the engine screams. Drive! Drive it like the demon that drives your dreams." Btw, I was never able to get a driver's license (long story).

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on December 30, 2019:

Anonymous - I don't know of this song and couldn't find it in lyrics databases. I hope a reader might know the answer.

Anonymous on December 30, 2019:

Do you know the country song, must have been released in the 50’s , with the chorus, “ an open road and a tank of gas?”

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on December 19, 2019:

David - Thank you for these song suggestions!

Maria - Thanks for the addition, and I'm glad that you have recovered enough to drive again. You're right. Who doesn't love Meatloaf?

Maria on November 01, 2019:

But it was long ago and it was far away, oh God it seems so very far

And if life is just a highway, then the soul is just a car

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are…

I was doing some research as today I get to drive again after 14 months off the road due to illness, the above song by Meatloaf does not appear on your list, and who does not love meatloaf.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 31, 2019:

hurrycaine - Thanks for stopping by and offering the suggestion. I added the song. It's also on the playlist of songs about poverty and homelessness. I've always thought of it more as that kind of song, but you're right -- a car was their escape. I hope you're not in harm's way in this weekend's hurricane. You and yours, stay safe.

hurrycaine on August 30, 2019:

Great list! However, you missed one of the greatest Car songs... it should definately be in the top 20. It would probably be in my top 5.

You can not listen to it without singing the chorus.

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman

E N Christensen on July 03, 2019:

One you forgot is FWD by Jethro Tull. It’s a bit different but but it’s out there.

I Drive Your Truck - by Brice Lee is good, but sad. Thanks for this list.

I have been searching for a song. I watched it in my childhood on tv. It was a rock band performing on top of moving cars. I remember the lead singer on a different car and the drummer on another car. The video had police chasing the band while they performed on the cars. Been searching for this a long time. Can you help me find it?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 25, 2019:

SE - Thanks for these suggestions! Have a terrific weekend!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 25, 2019:

SE on May 24, 2019:

Faves by Presidents of The United States:

Mobile Home, Dune Buggy, Crown Victoria, and Mach 5,

Highway Star by Deep Purple is really good too

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 16, 2019:

DavesNotHereMan on May 14, 2019:

Vehicle by Ides of March

Mel - The only thing I could come up with was Foghat's 1973 song, "Ride, Ride, Ride," but the album cover doesn't match your description, unfortunately. Perhaps a reader can help out?

Mel on April 27, 2019:

I'm thinking of a song from the 1970's, hard rock, "Ride, ride, ride". I can't remember the name of the group, the album cover had a chevelle convertible with a flamed paint job.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 23, 2019:

Jarod Horn - I will put your suggestion on my short list of playlist topics. Look for it in the next couple of weeks! Thanks!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 23, 2019:

Jarod - Thank you for these suggestions! I've added the two that weren't on here. (Little Deuce Coupe is at #31.) Have a great day!

Jarod Horn on April 22, 2019:

If you do a motorcycle one two good ones would be

Motorcycle by Colter Wall and 1952 Vincent Black Lightining. My favorite version is by Sean Rowe

Jarod on April 22, 2019:

Dead Mans Curve - Jan and Dean

In The Curve - The Avett Brothers

Little Deuce Coup - The Beach Boys

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 26, 2019:

C - That's kinda funny in a way. Not much driving happening in that parked car, but they are in a car! I added it. It's also on the playlist about young love. Thanks for leaving a comment.

C on March 25, 2019:

How about the Meatloaf song - Heaven by the Dashboard Lights

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 05, 2019:

Anonymous - I've looked for this and I'm not aware of the song. However, I'm hoping that a reader might be.

Anonymous on March 05, 2019:

What is the new country song with the lyrics "she thinks my car is some old classic the way heads turn when were in traffic"?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 12, 2018:

Shannon - You are on fire with these song suggestions tonight! Thank you! I'm adding many of them that aren't already there. Have a glorious weekend filled with music.

Shannon Henry from Texas on October 12, 2018:

Don't know how I missed then when you wrote it, but it caught my attention in the feed tonight. The first song I thought of was "Beep Beep" because I'm a weirdo and when I was a kid, I thought that song was hilarious. Drove people crazy listening to it.

I think you've got "Beep Beep" listed twice, by the way.

Here's some that you might want to add that I didn't see:

Red Rag Top - Tim McGraw

My Church - Maren Morris

Break Down Here - Julie Roberts

Little Red Rodeo - Collin Raye

Bye Bye - Jo Dee Messina

What About Now - Lonestar

Minivan - HOmetown News

I'd Rather Ride Around With You - Reba

Drive - Alan Jackson

Red Dirt Road - Brooks & Dunn

Riding with Private Malone - David Ball

Holy cow, who knew I'd think of so many? LOL. I didn't even realize there were so many. Probably lots more! Though some of these suggestions may not fit your intentions since they're more about cruising or riding rather than the cars themselves.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 12, 2018:

Brian - Thanks for this suggestion. I have added the song as #90. Have a great weekend.

Brian on October 11, 2018:

Would "Somethin' Else" by Eddie Cochran count?!!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 08, 2018:

Michael P. - Your suggestions make me think I should do a playlist about motorcycle-related songs. Thanks for the idea.

Michael P. on August 08, 2018:

TNT - Engine, Bruce Dickinson - Devil On a Hog, TNT - Driving, TNT - Harley Davidson.

putra on July 11, 2018:

i think Incubus - Drive also need to put on this list

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 02, 2018:

USA Rental24H - Good luck,Maria.

USA Rental24H on May 02, 2018:

Hello, my name is Maria and I'm traveling around Europe every summer. This year I want to go to the music festival Sziget. I think that I will take the car for rent, so it will be more comfortable ..

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 26, 2018:

Pete Whitelock - What a terrific list of suggestions! THANK YOU! I've added them all. Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again.

Shane - I added both songs for you. Thanks for the suggestions. Have a great day.

Shane Kirstine on April 21, 2018:

For me you forgot one of my favorites although you did get the more famous CAKE song on there. Check out "Stickshifts and safety belts" by CAKE. "Land of race car ya-yas" is another good CAKE car song.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on February 07, 2018:

Hey, Butch, be nice! I added your song. Thanks for the suggestion. Have a good day.

Butch on February 07, 2018:

Little GTO you're really lookin' fine

3 deuces and a 4 speed and a 389

How did you miss this?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 21, 2017:

Snow Man - Thank you for the suggestion. I will do a playlist about Trucks and Trucking and add it there. I appreciate the inspiration.

Snow Man on June 21, 2017:

East Bound and Down (1977) - Jerry Reed

for the movie Smokey and the Bandit

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 31, 2017:

Denny - Thank you for your suggestion. I have added this song at #65. I liked your YouTube video; it had a Starsky & Hutch feel to it, and I enjoyed the ending. All the best to you and your group.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 29, 2016:

teaches12345 - I was surprised myself once I got to listing them out!

teaches12345 on September 28, 2016:

I didn't realize there were so many songs about a car. I will have to pass on the corvette video to my son who has a classic model. On The Road Again, that brings back memories!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 24, 2016:

Linda - Glad you enjoyed this! Have a great weekend!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on September 23, 2016:

I didn't think that an article about cars could be so interesting! Thanks for the entertainment and the information, Flourish.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 21, 2016:

Faith Reaper - I've always had sensible cars, too. One day perhaps I'll rent a hot rod. I like that you just went with the illusion with the boys in the neighborhood. What the didn't know didn't hurt them.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 21, 2016:

MsDora - That's an oldie but goody. Some songs are timeless! Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful week!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on September 20, 2016:

If I know Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again," I guess everybody else does. I listened while I read through the list. "The life I love is making music with my friends, and I can't wait to get on the road again." Energizing as I'm sure some of the other songs are!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on September 19, 2016:

Oh, these are great, Flourish. I love riding around in my car listening to my tunes. I have always felt such freedom when I am able to just jump in my car and go. I've never really had a cool car of my own, and I am happy with just having a car that goes LOL.

One time growing up my dad bought this really cool classic GTO, I believe it was, and some boys in the neighborhood saw my out washing it one day, thinking it was my very own car, and they said, "Cool car" and I responded as if it were mine LOL. Shameful.

There are too many great ones here for me to choose my favorite one, for I love them all.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 19, 2016:

Linda - I have never heard this one, but I looked it up and listened to it on YouTube. I'l add it. Thanks for the suggestion!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 19, 2016:

Thanks, Larry!

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on September 19, 2016:

Another wonderful list.

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on September 19, 2016:

Fun read. But you have to add one more. I recognize this is waaay before your time (and boy howdy am I showing my age). "The Little Nash Rambler", aka "The Beep Beep Song."

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 19, 2016:

Kyriaki - So glad that your favorite made the list. My all time favorite has to be "Little Red Corvette." Thanks for stopping by, an have a great week!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 19, 2016:

Bill - Glad this topic registered some songs for you! There are a bunch of them! Have a great week.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 19, 2016:

Devika - Thanks for stopping by. Glad you knew a few of these!

DDE on September 19, 2016:

You have created a unique list of songs. I am familiar with a few songs.

Kyriaki Chatzi on September 19, 2016:

"Red Camaro" is my absolute favorite!! It sounds like summer, ain't it?

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on September 19, 2016:

So many popped into my head I was overwhelmed....staring with the early Beach Boys and Jan & Dean, right through to Tom Petty and The Beatles and Meatloaf....great topic!
