100 Songs For Your Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

Songs For Your Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

Songs to sing to, songs to jam to and even songs to keep you awake! In this ultimate road trip playlist, there will be enough tracks to do all those things.

Playlists are my go to when I want to fill in the silence. Depending if your road trip is a long one or a short one, an epic voyage across country or an easy drive close to home, music can make the journey that much more enjoyable. Especially if it’s your daily road trip to work and back!

In my 2 month road trip around America I learnt that a good range of songs is key. While the mellow singing voices of Ben Howard and Bon Iver are soothing and their words echoed the journey, I drifted off a few too many times (not at the wheel). I missed out on views and the ‘being there’. The journey is the destination as they say.

I’ve gone big and I didn’t go home on this playlist. This is one epic playlist! I’ve taken inspiration from all my favourite movies, TV shows and old classics. I think I have all genres covered so hopefully will cater for all kinds of road trip.

Here it is! My Ultimate Road Trip Playlist! Enjoy!
