    Two essential road-tripping songs.... "Radar Love" and "Boys of Summer".
    (don't be surprised if the 2nd video is gone by the time you read this-- Henley's copyright vultures are notoriously aggressive about his material-- this classic video isn't even available on Youtube as an "official video"... which is a darn shame for an award-winning video...go figure.).

    Nice call! I almost posted it but talked myself out of it for some odd reason.

    This actually was a favorite song for me and was the lead track on one of my mix tapes (remember those?) that I recorded for road trips.

    Rick Beato has railed against the Eagles as the biggest “blockers” on You Tube.

    @drmilktruck are you on the mandolin cafe as well? A very similar thread started there about the same time.

    I was looking for "Radar Love" because I have heard policemen say that people they pull over speeding were listening to that.

    And for "Boys of Summer", classic line: I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac, you can never go back.

    Allman Bros, pick a song. Dickey Betts guitar sounds like open road.
