    Radar Love is fantastic... Here are a few more I love:

    The Song Remains the Same (the song), Zeppelin
    Train I Ride, Elvis Presley
    Hot Rod Lincoln, Commander Cody
    Sing! Sing! Sing!, performed by Benny Goodman *(written by Mr. Prima)
    Boddisatva, Steely Dan
    Runnin' With the Devil, Van Halen
    Dr. Feelgood, Mötley Crue
    Speedway at Nazareth, Mark Knopfler
    Built for Speed, The Stray Cats

    Her are some great driving albums:
    American Idiot, Green Day
    Discipline, King Crimson
    The Catherine Wheel, David Byrne & Brian Eno
    Animals, Pink Floyd
    Badmotorfinger, Soundgarden
    Remain in Light, Talking Heads
    Led Zeppelin Four

    Of course, there is a right time and place for each of these... but when you get it right, it's magic.

    Behind the Wheel - Depeche Mode (typical Depeche Mode)
    Route 66 - Depeche Mode (Depeche Mode covering a classic)
    Warm Leatherette - Duran Duran (Duran Duran covering a classic electronic hit about a car crash from the 1970's)
    Wave - David Sylvian (just because it is such a nice long song)

    Of course DM and DD made better songs, but these are On Topic...

    I have to add another:

    Pink Floyd's Terminal Frost.... A great instrumental to put on in the fall, as the sun is setting, the leaves are blowing. Open the windows, turn on the heat and crank this.

    It's not a throbbing, pulsing song that you'd take a spirited drive to. It's a laid back cruising song.

    I agree with the others on Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb... the guitar solo near the end is just phenomenal. Irony is that I almost NEVER listen to Pink Floyd these days, but just like many of the other songs mentioned here - it has a place (at least for me)... expeditious night time driving, cool temps, windows down, and wide open space outside the car. Sitting in traffic around the corner from home, in the heat, windows rolled up, AC going, etc. doesn't add up for the experience. Can't wait for winter here.
