The Best Songs to Sing Alone in Your Car
Some songs are not meant to be enjoyed at a party, or dancing, or with other humans. Certain songs demand to be belted out when you're completely alone—these are those jams.
Sweet Child O'Mine
Most of Guns N' Roses' hits are awesome for screaming along to, but "Sweet Child O' Mine" is our pick for all those whooooooa-oh-ohs.
Love is a Battlefield
Make sure to bang on your steering wheel for emphasis during Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield." I'd advise shimmying, too, but that seems dangerous while driving.
Dog Days Are Over
Florence + the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over" builds bigger and bigger until finally you're shouting the chorus.
Come Sail Away
Can you remember every lyric to Styx's "Come Sail Away"? That's okay—you're all alone in that car.
I Will Always Love You
No one can hit that note of "I Will Always Love You," so you won't be judged if you can't nail Whitney's perfect version.
Someone Like You
Go ahead, let a little sniffle out. Adele's "Someone Like You" is the saddest ballad of the new millennium.
Living On a Prayer
Yes, Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" is just as good without a crowd. Fist pump on your own!
Its All Coming Back To Me Now
Celine Dion's ballad "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" goes on forever, and you'll be emotionally spent by the time it draws to a close.
Pieces Of Me
Ashlee Simpson's first song was a little bit of pop heaven. All the pieces! Pieces! Pieces of me!
Edge of Glory
Why is "The Edge of Glory" not Lady Gaga's biggest hit? It is the most delighful, delicious, perfectly pop song she's ever released!
Dont Stop Believin' Journey Song
Is there a culture on this planet that couldn't sing along to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"? I don't want to know about it.
We can all agree that the Spice Girls aren't played on the radio enough these days, so pack a CD to blast "Wannabe."
The movie Bridesmaids helped us remember how fun it is to sing "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips with your girlfriends. Or by yourself.
You Outta Know
Feeling a little steamed? Scream it out with Alanis Morissette and the angriest song of the 1990s, "You Oughta Know."
An underrated gem in the Britney Spears canon? "Overprotected." It works even when you're not a pissy teenager!
Since U Been Gone
It's best to sing Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" soon after a break-up, but it will work any other time, too.
Having a wistful Sunday afternoon drive? Wail away to "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Total Eclipse of the Heart
Turn around. Bonnie Tyler's very dramatic "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is the ne plus ultra of songs to sing alone.
