Singers and songwriters have had a love interest  with the car since its development. From Johnny Cash to ZZ Top, here are some top picks for the world’s best songs about cars.

“Little Deuce Coupe” by The Beach Boys (1963)

One of The Beach Boys first hits, “Little Deuce Coupe” is all about a suped-up Ford Model B, but it makes us think of the glamorous lifestyle of California in the sixties.

“Well, I’m not braggin’, babe, so don’t put me down / But I’ve got the fastest set of wheels in town / When something comes up to me, he don’t even try / ‘Cause if it had a set of wings, man, I know she can fly / She’s my little Deuce Coupe.”


“Built for Speed” by The Stray Cats (1982)

Most love songs don’t hold as much earnest affection as Brian Setzer holds for his ‘57 Chevy.

“Here I come in my fifty-seven / She’s a real low-rider, paint perfection / With a custom engine painted black with flames. / Ain’t nobody gonna call that hot rod tame.”


“Maybellene” by Chuck Berry (1955)

This song has everything you need in a classic car song — brand rivalry, racing, and a man pining for an elusive lady, the eponymous Maybellene. Also it’s a rockin’ great song.

“As I was motivatin’ over the hill / I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville / A Cadillac a-rollin’ on the open road, / Nothin’ will outrun my V8 Ford.”


“Red Barchetta” by Rush (1981)

Set in a future where “Motor Law” prevents any sort of free-wheelin’ fun, the narrator must sneak a ride in an old sports car, a red Barchetta, to feel the freedom and danger of the open road.

“I strip away the old debris / That hides a shining car. / A brilliant red Barchetta / From a better, vanished time. / I fire up the willing engine, / Responding with a roar. / Tires spitting gravel, / I commit my weekly crime.”


“Mustang Sally” performed by Wilson Pickett (1967)

The Mustang was already revolutionary as the first “Pony car,” a sporty subcompact car that a working man could afford, but “Mustang Sally” immortalized it as the classic American muscle car. Plus, you only need hear the title and the chorus will be stuck in your head.

“All you wanna do is ride around Sally! (Ride, Sally, Ride!)”
