I’ve been thinking lately, as usual, and I’ve been trying to come up with the Ultimate Road Trip Song List. Heidi, the boys and I leave Christmas day for our annual 11 hour trip up I95 to New Jersey, and was wondering what the best music would be for the trip. I’ve made this trip a thousand times but I always run out of good music about half way there. And if I get stuck in D.C. traffic, which usually happens, then I run out even sooner.
So here is my question: What are the best road trip songs?
I like Buffet. I’ve got a cd with the best of Buffet on it. I could listen to Buffet all day, which I have before. Favorite Buffet song, you ask? School Boy Heart. Most of you have probably never even heard of it. Next would be One Particular Harbor. I guess I am a sentimental at heart.
My wife, on the other hand, is not a die-hard Buffet fan. She prefers Fergie and Timbaland or Timberland (whatever that is). But I am a man of culture and fairly open-minded, so I want to broaden my horizons, learn something new. So tell me, what are some other songs that might be good.
I want to hear from you, the people. Give me some good songs or artists to put on my iPod for the twelve day journey to nowhere.
