Since reading that Steven Hyden piece about what makes a good driving song last week I’ve been working on cooking up my own mix. It started as two mixes at first- one for day, one for evening- but I soon realized that what I thought about when I thought about ‘driving music’ was music that sounded best during those golden hours as the sun rose and set, so that’s what I focused on. Below are 73 songs that work for those early morning or late night drives, songs to soundtrack some quality thinking time in the car, songs to potentially soundtrack a long drive from sunset to sunrise. Enjoy.
