Videos of Summer: Life is a Highway (1991)

Former Red Rider frontman Tom Cochrane returned to the charts in 1991 with the snappy "Life is a Highway", but unfortunately found that he'd fare just as well on the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo act as he did with Red Rider. That is to say, not well. "Highway" ended up a 1-hit wonder, just like "Lunatic Fringe" nearly a decade earlier.

Most people know "Highway" from the cover version recorded by the country group Rascal Flatts for the Disney-Pixar smash, "Cars", a few years back, but, through the courtesy of EMI's VEVO channel, here's the original "Life is a Highway".
