On normal days when I’m driving I tend to listen to the radio, having no control over what plays next and deciding whether I like it or not. My OH is VERY different as he will always take CD’s in the car and listen to albums.
We have two teen boys who have very different musical tastes and will tend to have their headphones on!! However, they do actually like some of the music that we play, Queen, 80’s stuff, Pink Floyd etc. They will NOT under any circumstances tolerate my love for the Les Mis musical so I tend to use this A) when I want to get rid of them and B) to torture them LOL. (after years of toddler tantrums surely we can get our own back)
In saying that though when we venture of on our holidays, which is normally camping, we do tend to have more upbeat holiday sorts of songs. We tend to try and agree to something we all like………………………this is much easier said than done!
Cumbrian-Cottages.co.uk have put together a holiday playlist ahead of the summer holiday ( fingers crossed for some sunshine) which you can take a look at here of summer style songs that would be perfect to get you in the holiday spirit as you drive to your destination.
Having taken a sneaky peek myself there are a few on there that bring back some fab summer and holiday memories for me.
*Holiday from Madonna played on my 1st abroad holiday without my parents!! A total anthem for me
*Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves is just a great feel good sunny day song as you drive to the beach!
And not forgetting the all time favourite played and sung for years on our short or long drives when the kids were little:
*The Wheels on the Bus!! come on own up……………whether you like it or not you WILL know the words LOL
So tell me what is your favourite holiday driving song is?
