From Aretha Franklin to James to Taylor to Big Sean, here’s 45 sizzling hot songs for your Michigan cruise.

MICHIGAN — It’s cruising season, ’Ganders—but Michigan’s roads have a D+ rating. Due to a decrease in travel, gas tax revenue for the state to use on road repairs has lessened. However, President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure package aims to bring Michiganders back to work and correct the state’s decaying roads, which include 7,000 miles of Michigan highways that are lackluster. The state’s miles are included in the 20,000 nationwide set for overhaul under the infrastructure plan. 

The infrastructure repairs will save money on car maintenance for Michigan drivers and make commutes more seamless, which could perhaps allow more opportunities for road trips. Road trip season is almost near, and there’s nothing like cruising through the Mitten. 

However, whether you have your top down, your sunroof open, the AC blasting, or your windows rolled down, your road trip playlist must be intact. From the highways of the tip of the thumb to the west coast near Lake Michigan, we’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled a list of Michigan favorites and summertime hits.
