Music on the Highway: 9 Great Songs to Sing Along To While Roadtrippin’
April 16, 2015
Music is an essential part of every single person’s travel. Without it, the road would stretch on unpleasantly long and your drive can get really uncomfortable. So here are nine songs that you should definitely include in your playlist on your next roadtrip. Better check your car’s metal parts first, though, to see if everything is working a-okay before putting the pedal to the metal!
What’s Up by 4 Non-Blondes
Get ready to shout what’s going on every time this song’s chorus comes on your car stereo! The song title is an enigma in itself as the phrase “What’s Up” isn’t found in the lyrics at all. They just used it to distinguish the song from Martin Gaye’s 1971 hit “What’s Going On.”
Centuries by Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy will want to make you tap your fingers to the beat with the first single from their newest album American Beauty/American Psycho. Listen as Patrick Stump requests you to remember them for centuries. For sure this addictive song will have you screaming for more FOB songs!
Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars
The perfect union of hot 70’s funk and today’s cool pop, this is one song that’ll make you want to groove to the music. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars hit the bull’s eye again with their fourth collaboration and fourth hit in a row. You’ll definitely want to hit uptown on your next roadtrip with this tune playing on your speakers!
500 Miles by The Proclaimers
You won’t have to walk 500 miles just to listen to this Celtic rock song. Instead, you can just have twins Craig and Charlie Reid take you to the Scottish highlands. Even if you aren’t actually there, it’ll be as if you’re there, that’s how this song will definitely make you feel!
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Considered as the most expensive song ever produced, this rock classic by the legendary rock band Queen will have you singing along to its insane lyrics in no time at all! It’s composed of six parts, each one very different from the other. It also has a bit of opera, ballad, and hard rock mixed into it. By the end of your trip, you’ll have each complicated part memorized by heart!
Let It Go by Idina Menzel
The kids are singing it. The adults are singing it. You are singing it. Despite the fact that it has been almost a year and a half since Disney released it, this song still has households with kids singing to it day in day out. And admittedly, it still has you singing along, too! So put it in your playlist and pretend to be Elsa freezing out the hot summer in your car!
I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys
Let out your inner boy band fanatic out as you drive to the music of the bestselling boy band of all time, the Backstreet Boys!
Happy by Pharrell Williams
Feeling agitated by that heavy traffic? Hit play on this song and you’ll definitely feel happy! As the bestselling hit of 2014 and with 13.9 million copies sold, it’s considered as one of the bestselling songs of all times. Clap along and dance a little if you want to and let yourself smile to the infectious rhythm of this song.
Mr. Brightside by The Killers
There are two types of songs: those you just like listening to and those you couldn’t resist singing along to. Mr. Brightside by the rock band The Killers is one good example of both. Named by two British radio stations as the song of the decade, the fast-paced verses of this song is definitely something you can follow while on the road.
Enjoy good music while roadtripping. Include these nine great songs on your playlist and you’ll definitely have the time of your life!
