Gearing up for that long road trip home for the holidays?  Your playlist probably includes some of these songs.

Topping the list of the 10 most popular road trip songs from a Pioneer Electronics USA survey is, unsurprisingly, “On the Road Again,” by Willie Nelson, which describes the nomadic lifestyle of a musician.  And if you want some other suggestions, here’s the rest of the most popular song list:

  • “Born to Be Wild,” by Steppenwolf
  • “Take It Easy,” by The Eagles
  • “I Get Around,” by The Beach Boys
  • “Highway to Hell,” by AC/DC
  • “Free Falling,” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

(See Willie Nelson in TIME’s Top 10 Supergroups.)

With none of the hit songs from this decade, NewsFeed can only wonder what the average age of the survey’s participants. Or, tragically, has the hey-day of the great American road trip song gone? (Via WIRED)
