The sun is shining and the family road trip is just a few days away. What you need to make that road trip fun, entertaining and exciting for all is a playlist filled with cool songs everyone will enjoy. Here is a guide to creating the ultimate family summer road trip playlist. The goal is to create a list of songs that the whole family will like. For my family, that means no boy bands, death metal or classical music.
Songs To Include On Your Family Summer Road Trip Playlist
Cruise by Florida Georgia Line
By now, everyone has more than likely heard this song. It is a great song for everyone to sing along to and features an upbeat tempo.
Dirt Road Anthem by Jason Aldean
Yes, another country song. You really can’t go wrong with country songs for a summer playlist. This song is great to turn the volume up on when you are driving down a country road.
Play It Again by Luke Bryan
Yet another good ole country song. This song is perfect for everyone to sing along with since it has a melody that is easy to catch on to.
Car Wash by Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliott
We move away from country for a bit and onto a song that kids will love. You probably remember this song from the Shark Tale movie.
Firework by Katy Perry
This song will no doubt boost the confidence of everyone in the car.
Shake It Off by Taylor Swift
You and your kids probably already know all the words to this song.
Life Is a Highway by Rascal Flatts
This song is from the movie Cars and is a great sing-along for the whole family to enjoy.
Hopeless Wanderer by Mumford and Sons
This is a song that is a power ballad in a hipster sort of way and is also filled with raw energy. It is a song the whole family will love to sing.
Happy by Pharrell Williams
Most kids have heard this upbeat song a time or two. It appears in the movie Despicable Me 2.
