What Songs Would Be in Your Long Drive Playlist?

We all have our favorite songs, but what about the songs that are perfect for long drives?

If you’re like me (and my brother), then your car is your second home.

You can’t just listen to one genre of music over and over again—you need diversity.

So which music should you add to your playlist? I’ve compiled a list of songs that would be perfect for long drives in any car!

1. “Lose Yourself” by Eminem

You’ve been sitting in the car for an hour, and you’re pretty sure the music is making you go crazy.

You know that it’s supposed to be a long drive playlist, but how long can people listen to one song over and over again?

The answer: forever. If there was ever a song that could keep you going on road trips, this is it.

You don’t need anyone else’s approval or validation; just stay focused on what matters most: your own self-image and sense of worthiness.

This might sound like I’m telling you not to care about other people’s opinions all the time (which isn’t great advice), but what I really mean is that we should all strive for self-acceptance and believe in our own abilities without comparing ourselves constantly with others (which would definitely be bad advice).

When we focus on ourselves instead of other people, we build character—and trust me when I say that being confident in who we allow us to achieve anything else we want from life!

2. “In My Feelings” by Drake

This song is great for long drives because it has a lot of energy.

The beat is upbeat, and there are even lyrics about driving that you can sing along to.

It’s also a very popular song, so you’ll probably hear it on the radio at some point during your trip.

If you don’t know the words offhand, just look them up on YouTube before getting started.

3. “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N Roses

Great song for driving

The great guitar riff, especially at the start of the song

Great solo (2:00-2:30)

Great vocals

4. “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star

“Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star is one of the best songs to listen to when you’re driving.

It’s like a combination of The Doors, The Velvet Underground, and Led Zeppelin.

There’s something about the guitar sound that makes it feel like a song from another era, but it’s not too heavy or dark for summertime cruising either.

The band formed in 1989 in Los Angeles, California, and is best known for its 1993 single “Fade Into You.”

It was the band’s biggest hit and their only Top 40 entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at No. 35.

5. “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World

“The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World is a song about a guy who’s in love with a girl and wants to know if she feels the same way.

It’s about the ups and downs of a relationship, and how you can’t always have everything you want.

6. “I’m Still Standing” by Elton John

This is a great song.

It’s classic, it’s upbeat, and it has a message everyone can relate to.

The song is an anthem for anyone who has had any sort of struggle in their life and made it through.

Do you know the feeling of being down on yourself or having doubts about yourself?

This song encourages you to keep going, because if you can get through what you have in the past then you can make it through anything else that comes your way!

This song isn’t just good for encouraging yourself though; it’s good for convincing other people as well!

If somebody needs some encouragement or just wants something to listen to on their long drive home from work or school (or wherever), this is a great choice because every time they hear “I’m Still Standing” they will know exactly what you mean by those words: You have made it through tough times before and now nothing else could be as bad as those things were!

7. “Royals” by Lorde

You’re probably wondering why we’re choosing this song for your driving playlist.

Well, it’s about not caring about material things, and that’s a good thing to keep in mind when you’re driving.

It’s also about being happy with what you have and not caring what other people think of you—both important concepts that will come up again as we go through more songs in this list.

The lyrics are just so catchy! You’ll be singing them even after the song is over!

8. “Suffragette City” by David Bowie

Bowie’s “Suffragette City” is about a woman who is, well, suffragette city.

That is, she wants to be able to vote—which was something women weren’t allowed to do until 1913 in the UK.

The song was released in 1972 on Bowie’s third studio album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

It peaked at number eight on both U.S. and UK charts that year; its success led to Bowie’s first American tour with Thin White Duke as his persona (or rock alter ego).

9. “One More Time With Feeling” by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

If you’re looking for something that’s both haunting, and optimistic, this is the song for you.

The lyrics are about the passing of Nick Cave’s son Arthur; however, it also serves as a celebration of his life.

The original version of “One More Time With Feeling” was written by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, who performed with him in his band The Bad Seeds.

In an interview with Pitchfork Magazine, Cave said: “I rewrote the words because I wanted them to be more personal.”

10. “The Mother We Share” by CHVRCHES

“The Mother We Share” by CHVRCHES is a pop song that was used in the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

It was the first single from their 2013 debut album, The Bones of What You Believe. It won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.


I hope you enjoyed this list of songs!

My favorite one is “Suffragette City” by David Bowie because it reminds me of the good old days when I was in high school and we would drive around with the windows down and listen to this song on the radio.
