Best Songs For Road Trips

July

Sometimes road trips can get pretty stressful. There’s all the packing for yourself as well as the little people--who need games and fun things to keep them occupied. Then there’s making sure the car is ready to go (although, actually, Tom’s Bulldog Automotive can take care of that part). Here, then, are some of our favorite songs for that road trip, to take the stress out of your trip, and make it fun the way a road trip should be!

Honestly, anything from Disney’s Frozen is going to be a big hit with the kiddos. The trick is to mix it up so the kids are happy, and you don’t go crazy listening to the same song over and over! Somehow, the kids don’t seem to mind the repetition. “Shut up and Dance” by Walk the Moon is great for the kids and the big kids, too! “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift is another great one for working out “the wigglies.” “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina & the Waves is old-school and a good family-friendly song. “I’m a Believer” by Smashmouth (from Shrek).

“Hakuna Matata” from the Lion King. Hakuna Matata means “no worries.”

You may want a quieter song, or two, and this is one we love so much: “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole. You may need to have some tissues handy for the adults, though, because this one is a tear jerker.

“Come Away with Me” by Norah Jones. Another beautiful, quiet song, maybe good for the end of the day. “King of the Road” by Roger Miller. This is one that’ll take you way, way back. And it’s very singable, too. “Travelin’ Band” by Creedence Clearwater Revival will get the kids rockin’ in their seats. “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac is a classic song that’ll get the kids wiggling.

So there you have it! If you need more suggestions, or help getting your car road-ready, stop by the shop. Please contact us if you would like to schedule an appointment. Tom’s Bulldog Automotive is located at 63075 Highway 101, Coos Bay, OR 97420.
