Ultimate summer driving playlist

summer music

So with two festivals under our belt this summer and a few little get aways, it means that we have spent quite a lot of time in the car and anyone knows when you embark on an awesome road trip you need and equally awesome playlist to pop into the car stereo to put you in the mood for fun and adventure. With Camp Bestival being just over a 3hour drive we needed something not only to inspire our trip but also to keep up alert and focused on a long trip, as nothing keeps you more wide and awake than singing along to your favourite tunes. So when Money Super Market asked me to share our favourite tunes we couldn't wait.

So we decided to do things equally - John has 10 picks and Laura has 10 picks, we went for a chilled theme as our music fancies change like the wind from rock, punk, folk and everything in between and when it comes to music it can be a real personal choice so we went for a pre-festival chill out mix

Lauras Picks (in no particular order)

2. Mexico - James Taylor
3. On the road to find out - Cat Stevens

7. Somebody stole my thunder - Georgie Fame
8. Something good can work - Two Door Cinema Club
9. The 59th Street Bridge Song - Simon and Garfunkle
10. Spooky - Dusty Springfield

  4. Some unusual but really cool track choices here... I always try and go for tracks with bass when I'm driving to keep me awake! I'm jealous of Gem going to Bestival - I had such a great time there last year.. apart from running round to try and find a spare tyre!
