Which is your favorite driving music?


  1. Great list. Never heard the Huey / Gwyneth duet before. Big Huey fan, so thanks.

    1. @Rol: Thanks for checking out the list. I prefer the Cruisin’ duet over the 1979 Smokey Robinson original. Both are good though

  2. Nicely done. Great to see Nightcall on here, which always makes me think of Drive. My favorite driving music would probably be some kind of pop or electronic music, since they're easier to digest with the distraction of the road.

    1. @Josh: Thanks, and hope you find some stuff to enjoy from the playlist. Love Nightcall and A Real Hero-both ideal driving music. I think you’re right the distraction of the road calls for something not too demanding. I would rather listen to wordy hip-hop at home :)


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
