Windows up or windows down, we’re on the road this summer. Whether it’s Route 66 or Route 27, to the Grand Canyon or to the Rockaways, it’s a great song or two that help us through the traffic and keeps us moving even at a standstill. Here are some tunes that may not help you get there faster, but will make the journey more memorable. It’s a good return trip, too.
