'Roam' by the B-52s

This travel-themed tune is a great way to kick off any road trip. It was a hit for retro group The B-52s in 1989 and has been a party playlist favorite ever since.

The band was formed in Athens, Ga., in 1977, naming themselves after the Southern slang term for the popular beehive hairstyle of the 1960s. They gained popularity during the 1980s with hits like "Mesopotamia," "Love Shack" and "Private Idaho."
