Songs to send you cruising the highway with the windows down and the stereo loud.
Echoes Philadelphia affiliate WXPN is seeking votes in another of their annual 885 “whatever” lists and this year it’s 885 Ultimate Road Trip Songs. Not songs about the road, but songs to create that soundtrack for heading down the road, whether it’s the road to heaven or the highway to hell. It’s not something I’ve ever compiled before but they requested a list from me so, here it is.
John Diliberto’s Top Ten Road Songs
1. Steppenwolf – Born to Be Wild
2. Klaus Schulze – Frank Herbert
3. Ultravox – Maximum Acceleration
4. Dandy Warhols – The Legend of the Last of the Outlaw Truckers
5. Toots & the Maytals – Funky Kingston
6. Rolling Stones – Satisfaction
7. Tangerine Dream – Stratosfear
8. Deep Purple – Space Truckin’
9. Ulrich Schnauss – Medusa
10. Banco De Gaia – Obsidian
These are the tunes that get my head snapping into the steering wheel. They aren’t all Echoes materiel. Take ’em on a road trip with you this summer. You can see other XPN host lists and vote for yourself by going to XPN.org. Or just post your favorite driving tunes here. What gets your motor runnin’?
