"Somewhere in My Car" is a song co-written and recorded by New Zealand-born Australian country music singer Keith Urban. It was released in June 2014 as the fourth international single and fifth overall from his 2013 album Fuse. In December 2014, it became Urban's sixteenth number one single on the Country Airplay chart. Urban wrote this song with J. T. Harding.

Content

"Somewhere in My Car" is an uptempo, guitar-driven breakup song about a male recalling a failed relationship and wishing that he and his lover were "somewhere in [his] car".[2] The song is set in the key of B major with a main chord pattern of E5-B5-E/G-Gm-Fsus-F, and Urban's vocals range from F4-G5.[3]

Critical reception

Country music blog Taste of Country described the song favorably, saying that "One can't ignore his guitar solo. It screams '80s rock, while the rest of the song is distinctively modern. The new 'modern' comes with a strong '80s influence, however, and 'Somewhere in My Car' rides blissfully along in that niche."[2] Giving it an "A", Bob Paxman of Country Weekly wrote that "Keith [Urban] goes on to deliver the goods in a song that deftly mashes lyrical content with instrumentation to create the overall mood." He also praised the use of a wah-wah pedal on the solo, as well as Urban's singing voice.[4]
