Flirtin' With Disaster, Molly Hatchet.   In most states (especially the South), all you have to do is tell the trooper that pulls you over that you were listening to that song.  No ticket.  It's impossible to do less than 90 while listening to that.

Seeing as most songs are under 5 minutes long, unless you're only going to the local convenience store, I would think you would need several favorite driving songs.

As for mine, I've never understood the concept of having certain music for any particular activity. If I like something, I'll listen to it regardless of what I'm doing. What I listen to may change with mood, but not my activity.

Day Driving
A great little-known slab of 70's instrumental guitar-god rock.
Modry Effekt - Boty

Night Driving
a late rainy night with a few friends and a smoke filled car doesn't get any better than when this track *cranked loud of course* hits the 3:20 mark.

Barney Google (with the Goo-Goo-Googly Eyes).  I've installed a Victrola on springs in my flivver so that I can listen while out for a jaunt.  It's the Darb, I say.  Sometimes I drive over to the local joint in my breezer for a joe with my dame, and I have that playing.  It's a patella apiarius,I tell you.
