Life Music Laughter: Summer Travels: Top 10 Road Trip Songs

Nothing starts a roadtrip off right, than great driving music.  Of course, the choices are personal but the intent is the same whether it is to inspire, energize, entertain, or commune. Here are some tips for creating the ultimate road trip playlist:

1. Choose a variety of genres: A good road trip playlist should have a mix of different genres, from classic rock to pop to country. This will keep things interesting and ensure that everyone in the car has something they enjoy.
2. Include sing-alongs: There’s nothing like belting out your favorite songs with your travel companions. Make sure to include some classic sing-alongs that everyone knows the words to.
3. Add some new discoveries: A road trip is the perfect time to discover new music. Add some new artists or songs to your playlist that you’ve been meaning to check out.
4. Consider the scenery: The music you listen to on a road trip should match the scenery around you. If you’re driving through the mountains, consider adding some folk or bluegrass music to your playlist. If you’re driving through the desert, some classic rock or country might be more appropriate.
With my roadtrip coming soon, I am looking at my current list and what I want to make sure is on my list and what I want to add.  I did a bit of search and here are the contenders.
5. Don’t forget the classics: No road trip playlist is complete without some classic road trip songs. Think “Life is a Highway” by Tom Cochrane, “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen, and “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson.
