Does Coronado Have a Soundtrack? What Songs are on it?

Every time I drive across the Coronado bridge I prep myself for the experience. Rolling down the windows, choosing the perfect song, and then turning up the volume, I am ready for my beautiful journey across. Songs like "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty & The Heartbreaker's,  "Already Gone" by the Eagles, and "Free Ride" by Edgar Winter Group have lately been my songs of choice. Now that Fall is here and Summer is gone, my favorites may change. But, I want to know what everyone else listens to!

So, what are your "Bridgeworthy songs?"

Is it The Beach Boys, The Eagles, or maybe even Lady Gaga that gets you in the perfect mood as you take in beautiful Coronado while cruising over the bridge?

Perhaps the song "Home" by Chris Daughtry comes to mind when crossing the bridge.

Found this one on YouTube and enjoyed the background music of their trip to Coronado - very fun:

I'd include Belinda Carlisle's Heaven is a Place on Earth

Mary and Mr. Mayor - we agree with your choices - we added the videos on your behalf.  Thanks for the comments!

During my first fall on the island, I couldn't stop listening to Sweet Disposition by the Temper Trap so that song will always remind me of fall on Coronado. Mondo Bongo by Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros is another good one for Coronado.

ummmm ... maybe not as modern or meaniful but the theme song from Simon and Simon(Best of Friends) ought to be considered a 'bridgeworthy song'

"HOTEL CALIFORNIA" by the Eagles...."You can check out but you can never leave" I mean that in a GOOD way!:)

Not seeing an embed code I've simply included this youTube link to Lee Greenwood's, God Bless the USA.

"Walk on the ocean" by Toad the Wet Sprocket

The right, descending curve on the bridge when you enter Coronado is pretty close to the same experience a Naval Aviator has coming in for a landing. My choice for a "bridgeworthy song" is "Danger Zone" from Top Gun.
