Harking back to the days of homemade mixtapes, BBC's television program Top Gear released its own version of a road-trip album in a two-disc, 38-song compilation they call The Ultimate Driving Experience. According to the label, Family Recordings, the first disc is a selection of "recent" hits (though if the Stone Roses song "Love Spreads" from their 1994 album, Second Coming, really qualifies as recent is debatable), while the second focuses more on atmosphere (aka electronica, techno, and house music). That being said, all the tracks do possess the absolutely most essential characteristic needed for the road: a simple, repetitive hook or chorus to which one can easily sing along or tap the steering wheel. Everything else is just secondary.
Albums with a light green background are new releases. Related Chart: Top 200 Songs. 193. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Remastered).
Documentary, uncategorized. In 2013 Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond embarked on what they hoped would be the perfect road trip. It started well and ended, quite frankly, very badly. Unbowed, the Top Gear pair are back for another crack and this time they’re hoping to avoid inconveniences like apprehension by the French police.
These road trip songs will make your next excursion a memorable one, whether you’re driving for few hours or a few days. Photograph: Shutterstock. This power ballad works better on the open road (with no adjacent drivers to judge your Coverdale cover moves). Though the song is about Bono’s vision of an Ireland free from class boundaries, it has inspired countless highway warriors to venture out to those places where the streets truly have no name.
Top Gear - in the form we know and love - began airing on BBC Two in 2002, and over the ensuing 16 years it became required viewing for any serious gearhead. On a larger scale, we consider this episode the beginning of the current Top Gear style. Putting a pickup on the roof of a building during a controlled implosion effectively separated modern Top Gear from the previous iteration. We truly believe it was that moment that marked the beginning of what we know now as Top Gear. Supercars do France (Season 3, Episode 7).
