    Music for Road Trips

    With summer approaching fast, it’s time to start planning those summer vacations! And what do some vacations mean? ROAD TRIPS!
    I love to drive everywhere! Already for this summer I have trips planned for Pennsylvania and Long Island. And no road trip is complete without music.

    Some of my favorite songs are:

    Disney park and movie soundtracks…always great music and it’s easy to sing along!

    Real Gone and Life is a Highway from the Cars soundtrack – these songs really get you going, though they are NOT good when you have a long clear stretch of road…I find these songs tend to make me speed (more than I normally do!).

    Movin’ Right Along from The Muppet Movie – This song just reminds me of Family road trips as a child, because we would always play the soundtrack to the movie…and Movin’ Right Along is all about traveling!

    It’s the End of the World as We Know It by REM….it’s a really great song and is made better with the wind in your hair and not a care in the world.

    My newest addition to my Road Trip tunes is the Happy Feet soundtrack (the non-instrumental one). Great music that makes you want to move and groove! And it’s also a cd that is great to sing along with.

    So, what is your favorite road trip music and what about it makes it good for traveling? I'm looking for songs to add to my Road Trip playlist!

    Usually I like the up-tempo stuff in the car
    "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" - Lilo & Stitch soundtrack - also Wynonna's version of "Burning Love" on that one.
    Lion King soundtrack, especially "Hakuna Matata"
    Tarzan soundtrack is lively, and Phil Collins is liked by all of us
    Disney's Summer Fun CD - not Disney songs per se, but fun stuff like "Dancing in the Street", "Walking on Sunshine", "Don't Worry, Be Happy", and the macarena version of "The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room"
    Disney's Music from the Park CD - pop singer versions of attraction songs.
    The soundtrack to On the Record is good too.


    Happy Feet? Sorry, never heard of it. Is that from one of those 'other' studios?

    Long Island and PA are popular choices this Summer as I too have trips planned for them! I wonder if I'll run into you ladies there...

    As far as music for road trips, my mp3 player contains much of the following:
    1. A lot of Disney (parks, movies, & Broadway)
    2. A lot of Cast Recordings (Broadway, off Broadway, London, Anniversary Concerts, etc.)
    3. A lot of Soundtracks (Yes, there is a difference between a soundtrack and a cast recording.)
    4. A lot of....I want to say "oldies" but I don't want to insult anyone. Basically any music that can be labelled "before my time." Namely Swing, 60s, 70s, standards, etc.
    5. Opera and classical

    I find those 5 groups I can sing out loud with and that keeps me engaged when driving several hours.
    As for specifics, there's way too many to list. I have realized I need some Aerosmith and some Fleetwood Mac to add to my mp3 player, but to decide which of their respective "greatest hits" to purchase.


    I agree with Pat regarding On The Record! I love the arrangements.

    Funny, I'm not a fan of On the Record. I will admit to having some HS Musical songs on my Ipod for my next trip.

    And the new Maroon 5 single is AWESOME...it's going into my road trip top 5!

    A lot of nuance from the stage production couldn't be captured in its cast recording. I think that is part of the reason I enjoy it as well.

    Long Island is a great summer town. Winters stink.

    I bring my iPod when I go on roadtrips. I could never even think of leaving it home. I usually just put it on shuffle and listen to all my hard rock, alternative, 80's, 70's, pop and stuff. I will admit that I have recently put a few Disney songs in there like "Out There", "Forget About Love", and more. =]
    Love, Kerri

    My last road trip, i made a cd that really seemed "road trip" to me it had songs like...
    Take it Easy -Eagles
    Drift Away -Doobie Brothers
    The Joker -Steve Miller Band
    Old Days -Chicago
    My Life -Billy Joel
    Its My Life -Bon Jovi
    Life is a Highway -Rascal Flatts
    If Everyone Cared -Nickelback
    We Didn't Start the Fire -Billy Joel
    American Pie -Don McLean
    I Come From a Land Down Under -Men At Work
    Stoned -Smash Mouth

    I dont know, these just seem like the sort of songs you would listen to when your getting away from life, or the regular day to day kind. They also sorta go with just aimlessly wandering which are what some road trips are, like my last one to South Dakota
    "L'amour brille sous les étoiles Illuminant leur cœur Sa lumière
    Eclaire à l'infini Un sublime espoir" -so i dont really speak french but would love to would u amour to?

    3 times w/i the celebration

    I also like the soundtrack to Rent (the play, not the movie). Great to sing along with!
