Streets, Roads and Highways

Yesterday the City of New York named 63rd & Broadway "Sesame Street" in honor of the program's 50th anniversary. That got us to thinking of songs that mention streets, avenues, roads and highways. Can we put together an atlas of those in the comments below? We'll plan out a route after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Eddy Grant "Electric Avenue"

Bonnie Raitt "The Road's My Middle Name"

The Replacements "Route 66"

Dan Bern "Alaska Highway"

The Soul Survivors "Expressway to Your Heart"
