There’s nothing more boring than a long car ride, especially when the scenery isn’t interesting. As a driver, you kinda have to do a whole lot of nothing besides, you know, driving on long trips. To remedy that, you need a really good playlist to keep you from losing your mind.
“Highway Hypnosis” is real, so you need songs that’ll keep your attention. There’s nothing worse than getting bored on the road. You don’t want to pull your away attention from the road, because that’s dangerous. But also, the road itself can get pretty monotonous. The songs we picked here tell a story, or have fun and interesting lyrics you can challenge yourself to learn. Some of them are just plain good driving songs.
A good song makes long car rides so much more bearable. Music is a great way to keep you and the people in your car sane. Of course, we want you to pick listening to the radio first, but if you need to switch it up a bit you can use these songs are coping mechanisms for when the drive is just too much on your psyche. Or, for when you need a good soundtrack so you can pretend you’re in a road trip movie.
Don’t get caught hating your commute. Use these songs as a pick-me-up or a distraction.
