The Best Road Trip Music: The Beatles, 'The White Album'

I’m planning a cross-country road trip this fall. Any suggestions for good driving music?

A:The White Album, recorded as the Beatles were beginning to drift apart, is like a soap opera playing out for you through the course of a double album. Lennon and McCartney (and, to a lesser degree, Harrison) collaborated less than they did for previous works, and recorded many of the songs individually. You can feel the band bouncing in haphazard directions with each track.

BEST LISTENING LOCATION: The traffic-filled freeways of Southern California, or any other place where you’re craving variety.
