whats a good road trip playlist?

my girlfriend and i are spending the next four months driving across the country and i need ideas for music. i just got a 120 gb ipod and plan on filling it befor we leave. we are huge music fans and i feel that music is a very important part of any good road trip. im looking for any suggestions, you can even be specific like "listen to this song, at this time of day, driving through this town/city". our trip isnt planed out at all but i am intrigued by planing a trip around a playlist. (please no 80's pop like madona, cindy lauper, bon jovi, you get the idea)

thanks for your answers
