IMPORTANT RESEARCH EFFORT

I'm working on an article for realcarguys.com. The title is "Worst Driving Songs Of All Time (So Far). First nomination: Eddie Rabbit's "Driving My Life Away."
Two rules: First, somebody has to LOVE the song. (Did Neil Diamond or Barry Manilow ever sing about driving?) Second, can't be hatin' just because it's country. Entries can come to either this email address or, preferably, worstdrivingsongssofar@gmail.
Thanks,
Mac Demere
