Next Tuesday I’ll be heading down to Charlotte, NC for my brother’s wedding. You all know this already because I won’t shut up about it.
At any rate, I will be making the 6(ish) hour drive there and back and I will be in desperate need of awesome music to keep me entertained. I’ll be packing my enormous CD case from the high school days (& oh how the hilarity will ensue!), and making a massive playlist as well – but I’d love your input too!
As much as we like to think of roadtrips as being these bright, sunny, smooth sailing experiences, the reality doesn’t always/usually/ever line up. So I’ve compiled a list of road trip moments and some of my recommendations for music to get you through them.
The Yay! We’re Going on a Road Trip! Song
The This is Still a Fun and Novel Experience song
The We’re Stuck in Traffic for No Apparent Reason But Still Okay song
The We’re STILL Stuck in Traffic for No Apparent Reason song
The I WILL KILL MYSELF if We’re STILL Stuck in Traffic for No Apparent Reason One More Minute song
The Happy Driving in Sunshine song
The Driving in Light Drizzle song
The Let’s All Sing Along to This song
The We Are Suddenly All Broadway Superstars song
The We’re All Starving song
The We All Have to Pee and there are NO EXITS ANYWHERE song
The It’s Getting Late and We Have Nothing Left to Say song
The Everyone in the Car is Asleep but the Driver song
The We’re Almost There and Can’t Sit Still Anymore song
The We’re Heading Back Home song
The We’re All Tired and Cranky and Don’t Want to be in the Car song
The I’m Pretty Sure We’re Never Getting There song
The We Had a Fight at Dinner and Now No One is Speaking To Eachother song
The Someone is Crying for No Apparent Reason song
The Reconciliation song
Kidding. This one depends on the people you’re with but I would submit this:
The We’ve Been in the Car too Long and Now We’re Stir Crazy song
The We’ll Be Home Soon and Everyone is Quiet song
