Road Trip

I officially started a week-long vacation last night for the Thanksgiving holiday week. This morning, I'm up early and getting ready to hit the road. Of course, I'm also stalling a little too. Soooo... before I hit the road, I thought I'd share some good travel music.

On the Road Again, by Willie Nelson. Too obvious? Impossible on a road trip.

She's a Lady, by Tom Jones. Good road music has to be upbeat and energetic and remind one of home. This song always reminds me of Tammy.

Tennessee River, by Alabama. This is a Brewer family staple on the road and even more so on a trip that will actually take me over the Tennessee River.

Suspicious Minds, by Elvis Presley. This is a great upbeat song that coincidentally is the prompt for today's 2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge on my Poetic Asides blog.

Evacuate the Dancefloor, by Cascada. It's energetic pop songs like these that keep me awake and focused on the road when it gets close (and beyond) the witching hour.

Anyway, this is my brief list of travel music. Do you have any road songs you typically play on trips?

Always Alabama! Also, Mannheim Steamroller has some great patriotic music that is perfect for driving. And if I'm alone, Celtic Woman, so I can sing out at the top of my lungs along with them.

Oh, I loved your music list. Almost all are my favorites. And now, I'll go listen to them and pretend am speeding on the road :D

CCR is a road trip staple too! All of it!

The Gambler - Kenny Rogers
Eye of the Tiger (to get amped up)
Every Day is a Winding Road - Sheryl Crow
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

I'm all over the board with music. But you can't go wrong if you have Pandora Radio or Slacker streaming into your car stereo - hours of good tunes.

Have a great trip!
