Mrs. Angus and I are planning a relatively short road trip later this month. We are looking for soft rock songs from the 70's & 80's for our travel playlist. Please make your suggestions!

As an example, here are some we already have:

Ambrosia, Biggest part of me

Little River Band, Cool Change

Bread, Make it with you

Exile, Kiss you all over

Sammy Johns, Chevy Van

Consider Spotify. I enjoy their playlists on my iPhone. I can pass this to my pickup via Carplay or my car with a cable connection.
