Roadtrip - A Raving Playlist

What's the best part of driving across country? Well it's not traffic, gas prices, stupid drivers and bad weather. Nope - it's the music. It's always been the music. We've compiled a list that celebrates the Roadtrip - a uniquely American experience from two angles; 1 - songs about cars and driving, 2 - songs that are fun to listen to while driving (for example, "The Devil in Me" by the 22-20's which is also on the Driver San Fransisco soundtrack - it's a video game). So the next time you're driving from sea to shining sea or even from the Great Lakes to a shining sea load this list up and enjoy. As always this list is also on Spotify.
