I just heard Dutch group Golden Earing and Radar Love…..a song referred to as the consumate “driving” song.

My memory of the best driving song came just after I got my first car, a ’72 Cortina, that I had just added a “stereo” AM/FM radio to. Talk about a sweet ride (for a 17 year old). I went out alone, into the night and headed for my favourite nearby driving road – Lakeshore Drive and onto CHOM-FM came the first notes of this classic Doors song from L.A. Woman. For me, THIS is the driving song.

The Doors – Riders on the Storm (original album version) – 1971
