Tom Petty


This is the quintessential road trip song. It has a catchy guitar riff and is so fun. The verse lyrics imply that this song is simply about a road trip, but the chorus lyrics are understood to mean the “trip” is an exploration of life’s immense possibilities and all its highs and lows. I imagine it’s the song version of the famous metaphor “Life is a Highway.”
