Ultimate Roadtrip Singalong Playlist

We are big fans of the road trip. We’ve taken long ones to Louisville and Atlanta, medium ones to Maine, New Hampshire and New York and short ones to Rhode Island and Boston. It is not important where you go or how long it takes to get there or if you have a good time once you’re there. What matters is the DRIVE and how you spend your time while you’re traveling.

Of course you could bring your pillow and try to sleep so it seems like you get there faster and so you’re sufficiently rested when you arrive. You could also bring your iPod and headphones to listen to music by yourself in the backseat as you watch the world pass by outside the window. You could even bring a book because you might not have that much uninterrupted time very often.

All of these approaches to the road trip have their advantages and we have used each of them at least once. We have found, however, that the best approach lies in the singalong. We have put together so many playlists to keep us occupied while driving and to give us a chance to sing our little hearts out; you’re never a better singer than when you’re in a car belting out a Whitney Houston song with your friends or family. We have put together so many of these playlists, in fact, that we consider ourselves EXPERTS OF THE SINGALONG PLAYLIST. We’ve had many opportunities to test our choices and have come up with a list of 14 songs that have never failed us before.
