If you are taking that road trip this weekend, you must go through our curated list, STAT. Get ready to update your playlist with our pick of the top 10 road trip songs of all time.
1. Hey Mama – David Guetta ft Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack
This song as catchy AF and is ideal for when you’re driving down a long road with the windows rolled down or with an open sun-roof! It’s true — David Guetta never disappoints.
2. Best I Ever Had – Gavin DeGraw
This song is fast-paced and will have you bopping your head along and tapping your feet to the music, as you sing along with De Graw.
3. Sledgehammer – Fifth Harmony
Trust Fifth Harmony to come up with the most perfect songs! Crank it up as you whiz past the city and into the great outdoors while you sing along to Sledgehammer!
4. Rude – MAGIC!
Need a lazy, slow-paced BUT catchy number to sustain you on your road trip? You’ve got it! Play Rude and shut your eyes as you listen to the drawling vocals and catchy beats. It’ll put a smile on your face, for sure!
5. Life Is A Highway – Rascal Flatts
Okay, seriously. Can there be a more perfect song for a road trip? I, for one, would play this one on loop until everyone else gets tired of it!
6. I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix) – Mike Posner
The Seeb remix of Posner’s song is my absolute favourite! I listen to this number every time I hop into my car, road trip or no road trip!
7. Wake Me Up – Avicii
No playlist is complete without some classics. Avicii’s Wake Me Up sure is an apt one for when you’re winding down those long roads taking you out of the city.
8. Coming Home – Diddy Dirty Money ft. Skylar Grey
There was a time when this particular number would be at the top of my playlist! I don’t think it’s fair to forget it so soon. According to me, it’s gold! It’s definitely an ideal road trip song, folks.
9. Closer – The Chainsmokers ft.Halsey
Not every road trip playlist needs fast and peppy numbers. Sometimes, you want to unwind and enjoy the beauty around you while listening to softer, slower-paced numbers. If that’s the case, this song is the one for you.
10. Beachin’ – Jake Owen
Pop-meets-country in this happy number. Picture yourself at the beach as you actually travel there, by listening to one of Owen’s more popular songs.
