Songs for the Left Lane

Helio Sequence art 300

Crafting the right music mix for your road trip can be as important as printing out directions: Both tasks require advance planning, and both are there to ward off dire consequences, be they getting lost or finding yourself stranded in a wasteland of crummy radio. The perfect mix lets you celebrate the freedom of being on the road, while the wrong mix cries out, "You're paying $4 a gallon for this?

These five songs not only touch on the concepts of movement and driving, but should also help keep you going just a hair over the speed limit — rolling along in the left lane, where you belong.
