Top 10 Driving Songs for Christian Music Fans

By

In 2005, Reuters reported that the University of Sheffield had finished a study on safe drivers. The study concluded that drivers who listen to tunes that don't have complex rhythms tend to concentrate more and fall asleep less than those who drive in silence or talk.

The Top 10 Christian Driving Songs are all upbeat and easy to sing along with.

1. "Revelation" - Third Day

Third Day - Revelation
Essential
The title track from the 2008 release, "Revelation" will get in your bloodstream and stay there. A reminder that asking God for what we want is a very different thing from asking him to give us what He wants us to have, "Revelation" is easy to sing along to and very easy to love.

chorus:

Give me a revelation
Show me what to do
'Cause I've been trying to find my way
I haven't got a clue

2. "He Did What I Couldn't Do" - Newsong

Newsong - More Life
From the release, More Life (2003)

Listener Warning: Tapping your foot while driving can cause bad things like wrecks or tickets, so listen to this song at your own risk!

    He did what I couldn't do
    Went to the cross so I could be forgiven.
    He spent three days in the grave,
    To make my life worth living.
    And the wonder of salvation is
    I could never be good enough.
    He did what I couldn't do. (couldn't do)

4. "All" - Avalon

Avalon - The Creed
From the release, "The Creed" (2004)

Have you given your all to God or have you just given Him the parts and pieces that you're not able to logically control?

    There’s a faith that can move mountains
    But I never let it move me
    I only trusted things that I could see

5. "Beautiful Surprise" - Nate Sallie

Nate Sallie - Inside Out
Curb
From the release, "Inside Out" (2003)

Beauty, money and fame ... the three things that the popular media seem to focus on as the keys to a happy life. But here in the real world, most folks don't have supermodel bodies, Bill Gates' kind of money or Britney Spears' sort of fame. For this reason, many people look in the mirror and don't see much that's worth looking at. Nate Sallie reminds us that God sees something different.

    I’ll remind you who you are
    ‘Cause in my eyes you are a star

6. "Finding You" - Bebo Norman

Bebo Norman - Try
From the release, "Try" (2005)

Bebo describes a perfect day in "Finding You".

    Everything is alright, everything is so bright
    Yeah, the sun is shining beautiful
    Everyone is singing, everyone is dreaming
    Yeah, the world is so colorful
    And you look back at me, and you know it makes me sing

7. "Kiss Me" - Sixpence None the Richer

The Best Of Sixpence None The Richer
From the release, "The Best Of Sixpence None The Richer" (2004)

Used on the WB TV show Dawson Creek and in the movie, She's All That, Sixpence practically became a household name with "Kiss Me."

8. "The One Thing" - Paul Colman

Paul Colman - Let it Go
Inpop
From the release, "Let It Go" (2005)

You may wonder if your life is on the right path. You may question whether or not the love of your life loves you back. You may even ponder the meaning of life itself. But, as Paul Colman points out in "The One Thing", you NEVER have to question whether or not God loves you.

10. "You Found Me" - The Fray

The Fray - The Fray
Epic
From the release, The Fray, "You Found Me" is about clinging to God when bad things happen while still questioning why. Great song - great band - great tune for the open road.

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Where were you, where were you?
