Hard to argue with "Radar Love", that's like the archetypal road song.

But for me -- and this is odd 'cuz I've never been a big Doors fan -- it's gotta be "Roadhouse Blues". I think because the first time I heard it in its intended context was when I was trying to drive solo from Brooklyn NY to Ft. Lauderdale FL in less than 16 hours so I could meet someone who worked on a cruise ship and would only be on land for two hours that day. So somewhere in the middle of Georgia at 3:00AM, totally ganked out on coffee, chocolate, and Jolt cola, I'm flipping channels on the radio and suddenly Jim Morrison comes screaming at me

"KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD AND YOUR HANDS UPON THE WHEE-UL!"

...and suddenly it all made sense. (The tune, not the road trip.)

although the Stone Temple Pilots 'interstate love song' has it's appropriate merits.

Can't limit myself to just one, as it depends on mood and time of day, sorta...

"200 Miles" by Cowboy Junkies. Just don't listen to it at 1 am or you'll fall asleep.

"Mrs. Potter's Lullaby" by Counting Crows. It just sounds like cruising across the wide open plains at 85 mph.

+1 on Radar Love.
Jackson Browne 'Running on Empty'
Outlaws 'Green Grass and High Tides'
Journey 'Only the Young'
