This was a discussion thread on Fark. Thought it would be good to solicit the group here with the same question.

Here's my choices:

On my first trip to California, I was driving from Santa Clarita to Ventura, on the Ventura Highway, listening to Ventura Highway... it was very zen.

In general when I'm in California, I like to listen to America.

While driving the desert highways of the west, I like to pop in the sound track to The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly and just loop thru The Ecstasy of Gold & The Trio... over and over.

On my way to work, I like to listen to Woke Up This Morning (Alabama 3)

I have a pretty eclectic taste in music, but am currently listening to all of the American series of Johnny Cash and just bought the Cash Unearthed series as well.

Can't go wrong with Johnny.

I just bought satellite radio; so, I'll most likely have on bluegrass or a talk channel when I'm on the road.

As far as CDs go, we have a gospel album by Alan Jackson that I like. It brings back good childhood memories of the old country church where all of my extended family went. It really reminds me of my grandmother.

I can't do a road trip without the blues mix on my Ipod. BB King, Memphis Slim, Canned Heat, Koko Taylor, Muddy waters.... etc, etc, etc. I also have to have my 80's rock mix. The bigger the hair on the band, the better. 8)

Coheed, Radiohead, and Wilco all do it for me.

I find driving the interstates in downtown ATL is best done at 2 am with heavy-on-the-sax jazz playing

Me, too. My boy loves Sirius bluegrass, and I just bought him the Aaron McDaris CD with Cottonmouth in the Canoe, his favorite!

He is also a big Charlie Daniels fan, with Devil Went Down to Georgia being his favorite. He wants to take violin lessons so he can play this stuff!

I am more of a talk radio guy. NRA has a talk show on channel 144, starting at 9:00 p.m.

Encourage him!

Music is important for kids.

Oh, I do! He is already taking piano lessons, and we are considering violin. I just hate that I cannot help him with it, as I have no talent, knowledge, or skills in this area.

I like stuff with a fast beat, or stuff I can zone out too. Metal and hard rock fall into that first category, country falls into the second as far as I go. Some great driving tunes would include Stone Sour's "Through Glass" and Papa Roach's "Forever".

One of the best is "Magic Carpet Ride" by SteppenWolf.

Only if I'm on a road trip without my wife. She can't stand older country. Over all we mixed well when we got together. She brought 80's pop, jazz, classical, current pop, and techno. I brought Classic rock, 80's rock, metal, blues, country, and modern rock. Between the two of us, we have most of the bases covered. :D
