The ultimate Route 66 music playlist

Over the years, I’ve amassed on my iPod more than 200 songs for road trips. These are songs are mostly about driving, along with tunes about the towns and places along the Mother Road.

This list, along with an excellent one compiled by the Federal Highway Administration, should give you music download ideas for your next Route 66 journey. If you got other good tunes to recommend, submit a comment.

The list goes in no particular order. The links go to YouTube videos where you can hear (and often see) the song performed in its entirety. Any song with an asterisk has been directly inspired by Route 66 or one of its landmarks.

Happy song-hunting.
