There are so many songs about riding in the car or traveling. It has been something that musicians use to relate to their fans. Some people make those songs road trip play lists. Some songs are about cars themselves, the love of their car, or just traveling. Of course traveling in the car is something we hold dear to our hearts. It is the perfect subject for music. Music is something that can lift our moods or remind us of a special time we shared with someone. Naturally, riding in the car is something most of us have experienced. It doesn’t matter what genre you like to listen to, there is a good chance there are songs about traveling. Here are 9 awesome songs about cars and traveling:
