Cruising in your Ford during the summer is great all on its own, but driving with an excellent soundtrack brings the experience to a whole new level. The perfect song matched with the smooth ride of a high quality Ford vehicle is a classic summer pastime that never gets old. Every driving time, from day to night, deserves its own tailored music to fit your mood and the environment around you. At Zender Ford, we compiled some of our favourite driving songs for whatever situation you find yourself in this summer.
Few things go together better than country music and a Ford-150 to blast it out the windows while you make your way down a dirt road. What better soundtrack than Jason Aldean’s modern hit “Dirt Road Anthem” for this classic Albertan pickup truck. When you find yourself on a road trip hitting town after town, you need a song that echoes that mood, and few have done it better than Johnny Cash and his classic “I’ve Been Everywhere” cover. If you find yourself in a Ford Mustang, it’s an absolute must to get the classic rock thumping. These tracks have stood the test of time, providing a killer soundtrack to all who’ve driven to them over the decades. Few songs get the blood pumping behind the wheel like Golden Earring’s definitive driving anthem “Radar Love.” When you just want to cruise and feel the music, you can never go wrong with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 9-minute epic “Free Bird.”
We’ve all been there, whether you’ve got something on your mind or want to enjoy the glow of the city lights with the rumble of a vehicle beneath you, sometimes a nighttime drive just beckons you. That’s when the moody R&B and hip-hop comes in, and Drake’s the master of those late night summer driving tracks. Building a career off of these melancholic nighttime sounds, we could post an endless list of Drizzy essentials, but “Marvin’s Room,” “Furthest Thing,” “Jungle” and “Feel No Ways” will help set the mood off from Canada’s own. Kick things up a notch with Future and The Weeknd’s “Low Life” collab and feel that late-night bass pump in your Ford Fusion. That being said, we’ve wallowed in our feelings long enough, let’s bring the energy back and cap the night off with Kanye West’s upbeat driving staple “Flashing Lights.”
