What makes a song a good driving song? The music? The lyrics? Good memories of driving around while listening to it?
There are no wrong answers. And you get to decide.
Your write-in votes are encouraged. Vote for your favorite in the comments, or on the Summit Racing Equipment or OnAllCylinders Facebook page.
But the 2016 nominees for the Cammies category of “Best 1960s Driving Song” are:
Fun, Fun, Fun — The Beach Boys
Mustang Sally — Wilson Pickett
Born to be Wild — Steppenwolf
I’ve Been Everywhere — Johnny Cash
Drive My Car — The Beatles
Note: Due to copyright restrictions, Beatles songs are not available on YouTube, so we decided to roll with Paul McCartney’s version. We’re pretty confident you already know the tune.
Born to be wild.
