Album: National Lampoon's Vacation SoundtrackReleased: 1983
This song has become a familiar road song in the United States. It was the biggest solo hit for Lindsey Buckingham after he left Fleetwood Mac. The song was released as a single and not part of Buckingham's own LP's.
This song was featured in the 1983 Chevy Chase movie National Lampoon's Vacation. It was also used in two of the sequels: 1985's National Lampoon's European Vacation and 1997's Vegas Vacation.
In 2015, this was used in a commercial for the Infinity QX60 that spoofs a scene where Chevy Chase ogles Christie Brinkley who drives past him in a convertible. In the spot, Brinkley is a passenger in the family car, and she chastises her husband for checking out a girl who drives past him. "Honey, a blonde in a convertible, seriously?," she says.
