On the Road—The Ultimate Road Trip Mix Tape
The Mamas & The Papas – California Dreamin’
California is the ultimate road trip destination. We’re definitely dreaming.
The Beach Boys – Sloop John B
Your trip might have some fraught moments, but Sloop John B is on the worst trip ever.
Paul Simon – Graceland
After California, the second-best road trip destination. Who doesn’t want to visit the home of the King?
Steppenwolf – Born To Be Wild
Blast this song while the windows are rolled down and you’re driving the backroads.
Beastie Boys – No Sleep Till Brooklyn
A classic fist-pumper. Get into it.
Rascal Flatts – Life is a Highway
Yes it is.
The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
Is there anything more romantic than someone who would walk 1,000 miles for you? No. No, there isn’t.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
What? You know all the words. We know you’re totally singing along.
Far East Movement – Like A G6
It’s impossible to listen to this song and not bust a car dance move. Just make sure to keep your hands of the wheel.
Willie Nelson – On The Road Again
Yes, we are.
