Having your favourite songs at your fingertips when you’re on the go is critical. Especially when faced with mundane tasks like getting from A to B where the monotony of it all sets in quickly, what better way to fill in that silence and the time than with your top tracks? Check out my current songs that make me want to roll down the windows, and crank up the dial.
What makes a road trip song?
Now let’s say you’re headed out on a big road trip or if you’re just doing some city driving in your spunky 2016 Scion iM, what would you want to be listening to along the way? As much as music is tied to your personal identity, I think it really does distill up to a few key things that make for a good road-tripping type of song.
- Energy – We all get pumped up in different ways but any playlist for the road you put together has to give you positive energy. Now whether that’s heavy bass filled beats or smooth and sweet lyrics, that depends on you!
- Classic – The best songs aren’t the ones that are on the Billboard right now but ones that evoke intense memories or are so generationally relevant to you that it’s almost like you have to be part of the club to “get it”.
- Know the words to – We can have the worst voices in the world but deep down I think we all want to be singers. Tunes you can recite like an anthem make for some of the best ones.
- Guilty pleasure – Everyone’s got that song or artist that you’d never tell your judgemental friends or coworkers that you listen to. You’d never admit it in a million years but you know that when it comes up, you’re not going to hit the skip button.
Jam to my favourite tracks
So without further ado, here is mix of 8 jams that I love listening to in the car whether it’s for a short hop to run an errand, driving into the city or a long road trip.
If you’re looking for something different, make sure you check out Toyota’s own Towards Tomorrow playlist which features some of the top hits right now. Or if you just want to make your own playlist, I highly recommend you play around with 8tracks for easy music streaming.
Grab your chance to win 100,000 Aeroplan points
There are still many days left of the Towards Tomorrow Event where you can put your name in a draw for 100,000 Aeroplan points which is good for an international flight to anywhere in the world. All you have to do is go to Square One in Mississauga (100 City Centre Dr, Mississauga, ON L5B 2C9) and head up to the old Target space on the second floor. This is where you’ll find a gallery of cars including the 2016 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid on display without the pressure of sales guys breathing down your neck. The event ends May 31, 2016 so make sure you plan a trip out to the event and get a little shopping done while you’re at it.
