Bruce Springsteen wrote “The highway’s jammed with broken heroes” but rock music history is also jammed with tons of fantastic songs about highways, per chance to accompany you on your last chance power drive.
Not to be confused with So Much Great Music’s prior assemblage of Road songs (50 tunes with “road” in the title), here then is the definitive collection for hitting the highway, the 50 greatest songs* with “highway” in the title (thus despite the aforementioned lyric, “Born To Run,” for instance, does not qualify).
So gas up, and take the highway. Hit it.
*there’s actually 52, I just couldn’t cut more from the list

BG: Check out “Daddy’s Highway” by The Bats from 1987. Very cool New Zealand band on the Flying Nun label. Great list. RMac
