    Driving from Oklahoma City to Nashville TN (10 hours) and then to Bowling Green KY (2 more).

    Anything by Asleep At The Wheel as a nominal reminder to drink plenty of coffee en route.

    I like to listen to the radio on road trips... You get some local flavor and a sense of place ... But you need to switch stations constantly as they tend to fade away regularly ...

    Any live Springsteen show will cover at least 3 of those hours. Also a good time to break out the old 70s prog albums (Yes, Genesis, Crimson, ELP) with long tunes that don't finish on short commutes/errands.

    depends on who i am with or if i am alone - i like to bring along a wide ranging selection, but i always like to play Allman Bros "At Fillmore East" when i start the trip -

    from "Statesboro Blues" to "Whipping Post" this album always gets my road trips off to a great start -

    I used to do a 12 hour drive to a work-on-site job a few times per year. I chose to do it overnight (less traffic).

    One time I found a radio station doing a P-Funk marathon, and listened to it six hours straight. It made the time and miles fly by.

    I have found that for long drives, audio books make the time go even faster than music. On our last long drive we listened to a multi-part (about 10 hours) podcast about a murder investigation in Baltimore. It was really engaging and enjoyable.

    This is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about, by Modest Mouse.

    Podcasts are a great idea. The ladies that do My Favorite Murder are really good at making horrific murders entertaining.

    When I was stationed in W. Germany in 1989 or so, two friends and I drove to Berlin for the weekend. It was about a 4-hour drive, and the guy driving had a CD player in his car but did not like heavy rock like me and the other passenger, so we figured we'd just listen to whatever the guy driving had. To make a long story short, it was "Kick" by INXS. That was the only CD he had in the car and we were forced against our will to listen to it on repeat for 4 hours. I knew that my only choices were to either commit suicide or get severely drunk when we got to Berlin, and as you can see I'm not dead.

    Just play Mountain Jam from 5/23/70 twelve times and you’re pretty much there (54 mins and change)

    Make sure to bring a hammer though, because at the end you can beat yourself senseless and make it stop… Dear Lord make it stop!
