road trip playlist

We are going on the Ultimate Road Trip Music Wormhole!  If you are heading out of town this weekend make sure to add a few of these to your playlist AND give us your favorites.

10) David Bowie – Suffragette City

It’s fun and fast paced. You can’t go wrong starting a road trip with Bowie.


9) Pat Green – Southbound 35

The classic college Texas country jam! Perfect for heading down to float the river.

8) Meat Loaf – Paradise by the Dashboard Light

Honestly we only included this because Carissa loves to sing it.

7) Going up the Country – Canned Heat

You’ve just got out of the city and this one comes on the radio… excellent!

6) Allman Brothers Band – Midnight Rider

This classic southern rock hit just makes you feel so damn cool. Watch your speed!

5) The Band – The Weight

For your first pit stop,


4) Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Runnin’ Down A Dream

You’ve gassed up, took a leak, and scored some beef jerky. Time to get back on the highway with some Tom Petty.

3) Steppenwolf – Born To Be Wild

You are the ultimate American badass! Sure you traded the Harley for a Subaru after having kids but your spirit still rides the road hard.

2) Lindsey Buckingham – Holiday Road

You can’t hear this one without conjuring up images of a babe in a red corvette pulling up next you…

1) Radar Love – Golden Earring

This is it. The ultimate road trip song. When you are tired, can’t see straight but still have a few hours to go.
