Searching for tunes? Here's a playlist that could help you spice up dull desk time, unwind on your way home, or anything in between.

The weather is absolutely gorgeous in Boston, and on days like today, my car is where I find my escape. When I'm driving, it's just me, the steering wheel, some horsepower (hopefully a decent amount), and the road.

When I leave the office today, the windows are going down, the music is going up and I'll be in the zone. From Prince's mellow, auto-themed "Little Red Corvette," to A Real Hero's electronic hit "College," I've put together a quick playlist that will get me from office to driveway, and take me on a journey along the way.

The last two songs just happen to be from two of my favorite car movies of all time: "Gone in 60 Seconds" and "Drive," respectively.

If you've got a solid 20 minute commute ahead of you and need some cruising tunes, head to a music source of choice and put these together (or listen below). You won't be disappointed.

1. "Little Red Corvette," Prince

2. "Tongue Tied," Grouplove

3. "I Love It," Icona Pop

4. "Flower," Moby

5. "A Real Hero," College
