The Great American Road Trip Mix

I do declare that the most important part of planning a road trip has nothing to do with maps or hotel reservations. Nope, it is all about the music. So instead of packing, I've been procrastinating by making one epic play list. I filled it with tons of danceable tunes and songs that my road trip mate and I loved in college. I also put in a good helping of country tunes, and a few melodramatic songs just to do some cheese ball singalongs too (Joni Mitchell, anyone). I'm already at over seven hours of music, and I just can't stop myself from adding more!  But then is a long drive. 

But I just have to wonder, what songs would be on your road trip playlist?

  1. That is a really long list of songs...definitely great for a long road trip!

  2. Okay, this list is amazing, I would actually have chosen about 75% of these songs to put on my own playlist! We have such similar taste in music! I definitely need to listen to the songs I've not heard of, pretty sure I'd like them judging from all the other songs on the list.

  3. i totally agree! It's all about the music to set the right ambiance and pump you up for the long road ahead :) Awesome list, I must check out some of these songs! My list must always include some goooooood hip hop, and some justin Beiber....ahaha
    and I still love to bring back my childhood favorites....spice girls. lol


  4. Love the song list! I can totally see you busting out Left Eye's rap during Waterfalls. :-) You should get a couple books on CD too. That helps me get through any road trip! Have a great trip Mrs. B!!

  5. Great photo! :)
    And really great playlist, i love alomost every song you put there :)
