A long, boring road trip can be turned into a long rocking drive if you have a great list of road trip songs in your playlist.
My husband and I love long hours of a road trip and often, we plan to hit the road. It is like an energy booster for us.
We enjoy listening to classic old and modern songs, sip tea/coffee from the roadside stalls, occasionally stop to embrace the journey and gazing at the views. We talk and keep on talking about random things, and sometimes adore the silence with songs being played.
Traveling is an inspiration, and when you merge music with travel, it becomes an experience.
It reminds me of the famous proverb, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Even if you do nothing, only listening to some good music too can calm your hectic and tired nerves.
Some love to listen to good old pop music and some go with modern tunes. Everyone has their own taste in music.
A road trip playlist is essential to have. It recreates beautiful memories, experiences and keeps your heart and soul energetic while you are behind the steer and for the person sitting beside you.
Like everyone, I also have a great playlist that consists of songs from different artists.
I thought of sharing with you all some of the best road trip songs from my playlist that I play in my car always even when I am just driving within the city.
Being an Indian, I have a taste of melodious and soft Bollywood songs. But with time, I have grown a fondness towards English songs too. International singers like Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, Ed Sheeran, Adele are some that I love to listen to.
Now, let’s check out the playlist and see if you want to add a few in your playlist.
