    Good idea for a list, but where's "Rock And Roll Star"? :)

    you forgot a song that was voted best driving song on top gear, and i could not agree more with that choice: queen - don't stop me now

    Agreed. And now added. This is by no means meant to be a complete list (yet), and I'll add to it, so suggestions are appreciated. I sort of half remember the Top Gear best driving songs, can you remember what the other top songs were?

    Well I can remember that there were Radar Love by Golden Earring, Highway Star by Deep Purple and Bat out of Hell by Meat Loaf, which they ridiculed all the time. That leaves one more but I can't remember what it was. But these three are all great driving songs. My favourites would have to include Speed King by Deep Purple and Juke Box Hero by Foreigner. Verified to have great impact on driving :)

    I just took another look at your list and remembered what the last song was: Steppenwolf - Born to be wild. Which means you'd already had 2 out of 5 of their nominated songs. Cheers.

    Thanks for that. I don't have Highway Star (so it can't go on the list). Radar Love goes on the list, Speed King is a maybe, I'll give it more thought sometime, and Juke Box Hero is definitely a good driving song!
