#20 – “Rockin’ Down the Highway” by The Doobie Brothers from the album Toulouse Street (1972)

Road rockers don’t get much more rote than the Doobie Brothers’ “Rockin’ Down the Highway.” It was if the Seventies sextet anticipated appearances on “road song” compilations for years to come when they recorded the roadhouse standard. The song’s first line (“Flyin’ down the road with my foot on the floor”) gives you a tiny inkling of what’s to come. Motor’s burnin’, cops-a-chasin’, rockin’ down the highway. Any questions?

    Misses two songs on the list.
    Manfred Manns Earth Band Davys on the road again, and Guns n Roses sweet child of mine.

    Little Red Lights by Todd Rundgren (Something/Anything? 1972)

    Blistering rocker, grossly under-appreciated.
