Groove on Through Your Road Trip With This Playlist

Groove on Through Your Road Trip With This Playlist

Everyone knows the elements of a good road trip are: car, friends, food and music. So when we say groove, we’re not just talking tires. You know you’ve done it. Sitting in the car, moving, singing, grooving to that favorite jam that comes on the radio (while those in the car next to you are looking on thinking you are crazy). Well, we compiled a list of our favorite little dittys for you to take on your next road trip. We know that some people listen to books on tape and others like to be alone with their thoughts, but it’s a road trip and we feel like that calls for music!


Now, we could have done a top-10 list or a top-25 list, but no, we wanted to include at least enough songs to get you through the first gas stop. So 50 songs later, we developed a list that will get you down Route 66, over the mountains or through those small, winding back-roads that offer miles of adventure. Whether you’re flying solo or riding with friends, we think these tunes are For What You Do and will inspire you to sing out loud and put the top down.
