Road Trip

I've had at least 3 friends put out a call for songs for a road trip playlist in the last week, so I am sharing mine with relatively little comment other than to say, there is no Bon Jovi. Let's hold hands and power through.

Hit the Road. Jack, Ray Charles
Don't go back to ROCKVILLE, REM
Amarillo Highway, Robert Earl Keen
Middle of the Road, Pretenders
Hotel Yorba, White Stripes
O Sole Mio, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Lovely Day, Bill Withers
Let it Ride, Ryan Adams
Lost in my mind, The Head and the Heart
Ride Wit Me, Nelly (yes, I know, I'm aware)
Stick shifts and Safety Belts, Cake
Keep the Car Running, Arcade Fire
Windows are Rolled Down, Amos Lee
Can't let Go, Lucinda Williams
No Particular Place to Go, Chuck Berry
King of the Road, Rufus Wainwright and Teddy King
Stay with Me, the Faces
Home, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes
You Can't Always Get What You Want, Rolling Stones
Windfall, Son Volt

And if you're very lucky, these songs might last you past Round Rock.  What are your faves?
