You might not be looking for the working writers’ highway, but I bet you are looking for one nonetheless. Maybe your highway is the road that leads to a finished marathon or a teaching credential. It could be that you are looking for the highway to love. If you’re chasing spiritual satisfaction; well, that may be the longest highway of all.
But whatever road you’re looking for, there’s plenty of music to keep you company. Here are some highway songs you might hear once you get off the main road:
“Blue Highway,” Heat Miser.
“Lost Highway,” Jeff Buckley.
“Highway Kind,” Townes Van Zandt.
“Highway Song,” Iggy Pop.
“I Am the Highway,” Audioslave.
“Key To the Highway,” Dave Alvin + Phil Alvin.
“Face To the Highway,” Tom Waits.
“In the Highways,” The Peasall Sisters.
There you have it: Eight songs as lonely as the road you’re on. What did I miss? I’m listening.
