    Roadtrip Playlist

    How about some tracks for a road trip?   What are some of your favorite driving songs?  

    Might be songs that include the words "road"or "highway" (or any other material location where you'd be driving ...) --  but not necessarily.    Might be kick mmm :), but might be mellow, depending on your mood, or the destination.  

    Feel free to include albums, too.    Anything / everything that inspires.   

    A couple (albums) to start:  

    Squeeze Singles

    The Stone Roses (eponymous)

    A few years ago I drove home from north of Montreal to Halifax by myself.  It was about a 14-hour trip.  I had the Steely Dan box set with me and that was the only thing I listened to.  It was the perfect music for a long trip.

    A few CDs I like to bring on a long road trip include The Who "Who's Next",Deep Purple's "Machine Head",War "The best of War ..and more",Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs"and Rolling Stones "Let it bleed".

    Those are what I took to listen to the last time I drove from Vermont to Virginia.

    Re: Roadtrip Playlist

    I like to play my Nuggets CD's when I'm on the road (and my wife is sleeping). When she's awake, the go-to discs are Billboard Hits of the 50's and 60's.

    Here's a Graham Parker song about the roads less traveled.

    Re: Roadtrip Playlist

    Definitely agree about the Dead and Neil and the Allmans...great road music.  Add: Guster, Panic, Stones, Wilco, Flaming Lips, Deer Tick.  This is where my super-long live versions come in handy.  The 45-minute cut of "Cryptical Envelopement/The Other One" by The Dead becomes essential.

    Here are some of my faves:

    Deer Tick - Straight Into a Storm; 20 Miles

    Iggy Pop - Passenger

    Widespread Panic (or Cowboy Junkies) - Me And The Devil Blues, Pilgrims, etc. 

    Neil Young - Walk On, World On A String, etc.

    Phish - Divided Sky, Stash, etc.

    Velvet Underground - What Goes On, Beginning to See the Light

    Bob Dylan - Highlands

    Dead - Eyes Of The World, Scarlet Begonias>Fire on the Mountain

    Re: Roadtrip Playlist

    I agree that it matters the season. Winter going skiing I tend to listen live Pink Floyd, DSOTM at Wembley and the recent live releases on Wish you were Here and maybe some Yes like Heart of the Sunrise or The Revealing Science of God.


    Summer it is more Live Dead like Europe 72 and all of the the other stuff from Dick's Picks. Along with The Clash and some reggae.

    I got a 64GB USB stick plugged into my radio so I have a lot to choose from

    A box set for a road trip would be the perfect way to put it to the test.   In fact, knowing a road trip were ahead would be a good excuse to buy a box set -- for the trip, of course.   :)

    Greatest hits CDs are also great road trip material, especially if they haven't been in rotation for a while.

    In response to WhatDoYouWantNow's comment:

    No playlist because, for whatever reason, the ipod-to-tapedeck converters don't work in my car. Sound comes through so faintly I can't hear it, even with everything on max volume.


    So it's CDs...and depending on the mood, it's usually one of:

     

    Stones: Beggar's, Bleed, or Exile

    AIC: Live, or mix CDs combining various studio recordings.

    Gn'r: Appetite & Illusion

    Zepp: How the West was Won.

     

    Though, half the time, I drive in silence on longish car trips and contemplate whatever.

     

    I should have put playlist in quotes.   Just meant music in general.   It's all good.

    I have a few friends who listen to audiobooks for their regular commute.  Listening to an audiobook, if it didn't get too distracting, would be a worthwhile way to spend some time on a road trip, too.   Could be fun.

    Very nice.   If you can sing that without going off key, you must be very good singers.  Smile
