    Roads, streets and highways - a 'word search challenge type thing'

    Looking for song titles that contain the word road, street or highway along with variations such as: alley, avenue, boardwalk, boulevard, freeway, lane, route.

    There are a lot of them, and I thought it would be fun if we had some targets like the ones you have in word search type games.  So maybe

    75 songs - good

    100 - very good

    125 - excellent

    150 - spectacular

    Bruce Springsteen crushes the competition in song titles with roads and streets.  Here's Bruce getting things off to a rip-roaring start:

    Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?

    The E Street Shuffle

    Incident on 57th Street

    Thunder Road

    Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out

    Backstreets

    Racing in the Street

    Streets of Fire

    Out in the Street

    Wreck on the Highway

    Highway Patrolman

    Working on the Highway

    Highway 29

    Further On (Up the Road)

    That's 14.  Thanks Bruce!

    Three songs I can think of off the top of my head that involve street/road and are some artists better songs.

     

    Copperhead Road - (Steve Earle ... his only song worth remembering)


    Where The Streets Have No Name - (U2 ... one of their better songs)


    Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - (Sir Elton ... brings back memories of playing pond hockey growing up near Boston)
