Road trips are possibly the coolest things that have ever happened to humanity; driving to nowhere in particular with the windows down, the wind blowing through your hair, the sun kissing your skin, and the radio blaring some of your favorite tunes. I prefer an old-time approach to road trips, filled with the 70s and 80s hits.

1. "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd 

The Southern Anthem. If you're from the south, you know this song!

2. "Dancing Queen" by ABBA

Thank you Mamma Mia for bringing this song to the younger generations!

3. "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas 

Jesse from Pitch Perfect approves of this road jam!

4. "Grease" by Frankie Valli

Grease is the wooorrrdddddd....

5. "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC

A song that you can nod your head to (and maybe some hair flips)!

6. "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard

The song that will keep you up or give you more energy!

7. "Livin' On A Prayer" by Bon Jovi

Great song to lip sync with your phone with in the car!

8. "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey 

The most popular 80s song that all the younger generation knows!

9. "Thriller" by Michael Jackson 

Even if its not Halloween, its still a great sing-a-long.

10. "9 to 5" by Dolly Parton 

Who can't sing-a-long with Dolly? Especially this catchy tune!

11. "Jolene" by Dolly Parton

With Pentatonix and Miley Cyrus doing covers and duets with Dolly on Jolene, any version is

12. "Dixieland Delight" by Alabama 

If you live in the state of Alabama or have ever visited, you'll hear this song. During football seasons you'll hear this song every Saturday!

13. "Fishin' in the Dark" by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

"You and me goin fishin in the dark....."

14. "Amarillo By Morning" by George Straight

This is a slower, easier song to help you on your trip!

15. "Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" by Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson 

This classic is just one of those you can't help but sing!

16. "The Gambler" by Kenny Rodgers

Papa Kenny will give you some good life advice while on a road trip!

17. "Family Tradition" by Hank Williams Jr.

Another song that if you're from the south then you'll know this! You'll hear it at every concert you attend.

18. "East Bound & Down" by Jerry Reed

Good ole Smokey and The Bandit can never be bad for a road trip! They were the best at it!

19. "Delta Dawn" by Tanya Tucker 

If you want to hear a story in a song, this ones for you! Tanya sure will entertain you during a road trip!
