The 5 best Summer Driving Songs
While we may be entering the final stint of summer, we should still continue to make the most of the sun while it shines.
Drivers will share this sentiment, as there really is nothing quite like the feeling of hitting the open road beneath the glare of a raging sun.
This type of experience is best when it is accompanied by music, of course, so long as you can identify the best tracks.
Here are five of the best summer driving songs:
1. Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
A relatively new song, few tracks capture the essence of summer quite like Uptown Funk. Penned by Mark Ronson and featuring the irrepressible Bruno Mars, it is brilliantly catchy and boasts the type of sing-a-long chorus that is hard to resist. Check out this track here, but be sure to watch the foot-tapping with those pedals!
2. Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince
Before today's generation of edgy rappers, iconic guys like Will Smith made their mark in the genre. Summertime is the perfect embodiment of the music from this period, bringing back memories of lazy summer days and good times with friends. We hope Will returns to the rap world when he his done with acting, as we could do with some good-natured raps hitting the charts.
3. Dammit by Blink 182
A track with a slightly different flavour, Dammit by Blink 182 dates back to longer before the band made their breakthrough with the iconic 'All The Small Things'. The song oozes all things summer, with a bright and energetic riff while its focus on growing up creates a reflective feeling among those of us who are old enough to remember its original release.
4. Dance Wiv Me by Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris
This is a summer-inspired track that melds the very best of rap, pop and R 'n B, while also boasts a beat and soaring, anthem-like chorus that is the perfect preparation for a summer night out. A great song, and of the best up-beat tracks to emerge in the last two decades or so.
5. I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas
We end with a true modern classic, and one that remains the seminal hit from the polarising Black Eyed Peas. Positive, high in tempo and truly impossible to ignore, this is the perfect driving track regardless of the length you are required to travel.
If these tracks do not put you in the mind to drive, we don't know what will? You can view our latest deals to find your dream car and take another step towards getting out on the open road before the summer ends!
