In case you’re on a roadtrip, Gina and I have the ultimate playlist for you. I’m not kidding. We’re obsessed. It’s all we’ve been listening too for months now and we had the best time putting it together.
The first thing after establishing a hashtag for our little adventure (#TheRoadWander) was to work on this playlist. We spent a couple of weeks casually adding songs to this, listened to it on repeat when we were still in San Francisco and arrived in Tampa, starting the car and realising we had no way of connecting our phones and iPods to the car speakers.
But nifty and innovative as we are, we hopped into the next Radio Shack and bought some tiny speakers. Not the best quality (duh) but it definitely added character to our car rides. Please excuse the excess amount of (good) country, blues and old school rock on this playlist, but we were driving through the South, after all (and we’re not sorry. Not one bit.).
Listening to the radio proved to be interesting. But now we know that true southern gentlemen won’t ever wear brightly coloured pants, own cats or tweet, because what they have to say is more meaningful than that. (I’m not being sarcastic, this really was something we listened to on the radio. Open mouthed, with stunned (and slightly amused) expressions on our faces.)
You can look back on our adventures with #TheRoadWander on Instagram (G & K).
Here’s the official #TheRoadWander playlist. There’s only one rule: when Proud Mary comes on, you better dance like there’s no tomorrow. We take Proud Mary very seriously (and you better do too ;-))
So judge away. Complain about cheesy pop songs, weird covers and overplayed rock anthems. We don’t care.
Hot tea. Cozy blankets. The sound of rain against your window. Deep sighs. Contentment.
[After having neglected my music collection for a long, long time, I finally managed to find the time to listen and discover new songs and artists. Here’s a mix of new discoveries and old favourites. I hope you enjoy it. If you have music recommendations, please do comment and let me know :)]
