Fresh Traveler’s Driving Playlist #1

One of the most important parts of a road trip is the music you’re listening to. It sets the mood, keeps you awake, or accentuates the beauty around you. As Patricia and I were driving through the night from DC to Corning, NY our playlist consisted of:

  • Patty Griffin – Her voice soothes and her lyrics give you much to contemplate while driving.
  • B.O.B. – That’s right. You’ve got to get those beats bumpin’ when you feel yourself drifting off. Nothing like a midnight dance party in your seats.
  • Katie Herzig- Her ambient arrangements and haunting voice give you chills and make you feel alive.
  • Adele – Nothing like singing “Someone Like You” at the top of your lungs. Hey, no one’s watching.
  • Coldplay- Come on. Perfect for the road at night. Relaxing, yet epic, just like this journey.

Oh, and did I mention we found the Oprah station on our Honda’s XM radio? Oh yeah…

What are your favorite tunes to listen to while driving at night?

  1. Elvis is our choice for any time of day.

  2. Julie Glover

    Maybe we should work on a mix CD of Denton, Texas, bands for you? There’s a ton of them here!

    Hi ladies! I’ve enjoyed your en route posts so far and am wondering if you’re going to blog at all about what you did while in Corning. I’m anxious to hear how you spent your time there and what Corning has to offer! Especially since you ladies drew the “most fun” category!

    Happy travels!

    We’ve been listening to Anna Haas!
