Happy Holidays my super amazing friends! 😀 What is your recipe to the perfect road trip…? I bet that for most of us it simply must have: fun company, lots of spontaneity, yummy snacks & great music!
Am I right or am I right? 😀
I’ve wanted to compile a road trip playlist for the longest time! And as you probably know, I am a sucker for road trips and good music… 😀
Music plays a huge role in my creative process… In fact, I was inspired to write this post while listening to Pentatonix: The First Noel & That Is Christmas To Me.
Give them a listen & you’ll be ushered into a wondrous festive mood, no matter where you are… 😀
I digress.. Okay back to our road trip playlist… 😀
Who Needs A Road Trip Playlist Anyway?
Have you ever gone on a road trip with folks who don’t exactly share your taste in music? Oh it can be quite the torture! 🙁
Or perhaps, you’ve had those awkward moments when the radio signal disappears, stories have fizzled out and there’s nothing interesting to listen to….
Tip: Create your road trip playlist in advance, and save it on your phone or flash disk to keep the fun going. 🙂
It’s a given: tastes in music differ: what is entertaining for one person might be like a snooze button for the next person.
Tip: If you are traveling in a group, create a diverse collection for your road trip playlist. This way, you’re likely to cater much better to different people’s moods, taste & settings… 😀
Nothing Beats Team Effort!
I enjoyed listening to the diversity in your suggestions & putting this list together was uber exciting!
I feel like a DJ at this point, so let me put on my imaginary ‘Beats by Dre‘ headphones & let’s dive into it! 😀
P.S. This is a compilation of your suggestions + some of my favorites for the road. Press Play, put it on Shuffle & enjoy! 😉
