Got a packed car with your girl squad? This is when you blast Danity Kane’s “Showstopper” and pull up to school like you run the place. Rainbow Cadillacs? We want one!
“We in the car, we ride slow. We doin’ things that the girls don’t do. The boys stare, we smile back. All my girls in the rainbow Cadillacs, yeah!”
THE summer anthem, “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line, is just what you need to kick off any road trip or drive out to the lake with your friends. The chorus alone has us searching for our denim shorts and SPF. Summer, we ready.
“Baby you a song, you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruiseee down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle every little farm town with you.”
For when you’re just straight salty, “Forget You” by CeeLo Green should do the trick in helping you belt out your anger.
“I see you driving ‘round town with the girl I love and I’m like, forget you! Oo, oo, oo”
Just keep this one on repeat tbh.
“Yeah, I’m sorry, I can’t afford a Ferrari!”
Need a hardcore workout song? Or just want some hip-hop to pump you up for your day? “Bugatti” by Ace Hood will get you there. You don’t have to have a Bugatti to feel this cool. And good news, the chorus is pretty easy to follow along to:
“I woke up in the new Bugatti. I woke up in the new Bugatti” (….over and over)
Breakup on your mind? This is when you turn to the classics. AKA Taylor Swift’s oldie “Picture to Burn.” Noone knows how to cut em deep like Tay Tay.
“I hate that stupid old pickup truck you never let me drive.”
If you’re looking for just some plain old happy vibes, “The Passenger” by Iggy Pop is the perfect song for you. A classic upbeat seventies jam, the lyrics about the car passenger is a hopeful metaphor for a man’s ride through life. True poetry, man.
“I am a passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the city’s backside
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, they’re bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight.”
From a singalong with your pals to a warm-up song before the big game, “The Distance” by Cake is a fun beat with easy-to-memorize lyrics. This 90s pop song won’t be going out of style anytime soon, so add it to the playlist of classics.
“The sun has gone down and the moon has come up and long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he’s driving and striving and hugging the turns and thinking of someone for whom he still burns.”
