Playlist: The Summer Road Trip

We're smack-dab in the middle of Summer, and to me, there are few more quintessential Summer vacations than a good old-fashioned road trip. Of course, any good road trip needs a great Playlist, and there is no shortage of songs that pay tribute to motorized wanderlust.

In fact, when I made my trip cross-country several years ago, I asked all of my friends to burn mix CDs so I would have plenty to listen to en route. Of course, that was before these newfangled iPod Playlists, but I've used those original CDs as inspiration for my summer road trip iMix. Clicking the link takes you to a URL that will ask you to launch iTunes, so just click "launch application" in the pop-up window. Since I'm now publishing the BuzzSugar Playlists on iTunes, you can even buy the iMix for your next road trip. Tell me what would be on your road-trip mix, and to see the list of songs on mine,

  1. “The Weight” by The Band
  2. "Ramblin' Man" by The Allman Brothers
  3. "Heavy Metal Drummer" by Wilco
  4. "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger
  5. “Honk if You’re Lonely” by The Silver Jews
  6. “Cecilia” by Simon and Garfunkel
  7. “Another Travelin’ Song” by Bright Eyes
