To celebrate The Indy’s first-ever “Wheels” issue, we’re giving you a list of the best car songs of all time. Here they are:
5) “Radar Love” by Golden Earring: Formed in 1961, the Dutch band’s biggest hit was this 1973 tune that talks of “shifting gears” and hypnotizing roads.
4) “Low Rider” by War: If all your friends are low riders, then it’s no wonder these SoCal dudes are on this list.
3) “Life Is a Highway” by Tom Cochrane: The Canadian singer’s 1991 hit, which was covered in 2006 by Rascal Flatts, remains his major claim to fame.
2) The Beach Boys: We’ll honor the entire body of work of these Californian crooners, for such hits as “Fun, Fun, Fun” and “Little Deuce Coupe.”
1) “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson: Nothing more needs to be said about this reigning champ of road songs.
