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.
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.

Great list and we have some mutual entries there! Love your taste!

I love every single song on your playlist!! It needs Bruno Mars on it – unless I missed it??
Thank you!! You’re right, it needs Bruno Mars! I added “Just the Way You Are” to my playlist. Thanks for your suggestion! 🙂
Good one!! I can’t stop listening to Uptown Funk. It is great for giving me energy to clean the house! Ha.
