It's cheesy but this is one of those songs I can't hear on the radio without turning it up and dancing a little behind the steering wheel. It always cheers me up and makes me smile and takes me right back to 1992 all over again...

And Eleven years BEFORE "Life is a Highway," he had a much bigger and better hit with his band "Red Rider." The song was "Lunatic Fringe," and if you've ever seen the great movie "Vision Quest," you've heard it!

How dare you call him 'The guy who sang "Life is a highway"'. The guy is a freaking legend... Shame TMZ, shame, Canada is hanging is head at this headline. P.S. He was already all grown up...

Actually, steve in Oakville, Canada, Life Is a Highway was released in 1991 and was still on the charts in 1992. I remember this clearly, because I was in grade nine at the time. By 1994 he'd already released his next album.
