I like We Were Dead... by Modest Mouse.

It's not my favorite album of theirs but it's a good one for driving.

Probably not a good one to listen to when you're on a cruise or trans-atlantic sea voyage, though.

Exactly.

In that case I'd be listening to The Love Boat theme song.

I think some good driving albums are...

Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
Doves - Lost Souls
The Cure - Disintegration

most of my roadtrips involve the appalachian mountains, which hold a special place in my heart. so if the roadtrip is during the day, i'll go for some mountainy countryish folk type music, most of it is stuff i listened to when i lived there:

carbon leaf (any album, really)
alison krauss (with or without union station, also with robert plant)
bela fleck & the flecktones
ani difranco
john waite (i know, i know...)
lynn miles

oh and i agree with GAF on Born to Run

if driving at night i usually go for something loud and/or groovy that i can sing along with, just to keep me awake.
