30 Songs to Include in a Road Trip Playlist

Songs to Include in a Road Trip Playlist

A good music playlist is needed in every road trip.  If you’re still fixing your playlist or haven’t made one yet, see this list of 30 Songs to Include in a Road Trip Playlist.  I realized how much we depended on it during our recent road trip to Montreal.  It took us more than 5 hrs per trip (one-way)!  The songs (and snacks) boosted our energy and mood during the long drive.

Songs to Include in a Road Trip Playlist

A playlist is also a must-have in every road trip because once you get to a new location, the radio stations are different and you would be scrambling to find good songs.  With a road trip playlist, you would already have a set of songs you know you would like.  If you’re in the front passenger seat, it’s your responsibility to entertain the driver and make sure he/she is still feeling well.  Remember, it’s the least you can do! 🙂

The list mostly includes feel-good songs, favorites from the 90s-2000s, and those that you can’t help but sing along to.
