Top Ten Driving Tunes
Whether you’re on your way to work or on a road trip adventure, nothing makes those long commutes better than a good tune. That’s why we put together a list of the essential tracks for your playlist, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
The belt out louds
We’ve all been there, the mates are in the back and the windows are down as you speed along to your destination. You need something everyone knows that you can all sing along to at the top of your lungs.
Jet - Are You Gonna Be My Girl
With brilliant guitar work and easy to learn lyrics, all in all this is an excellent rock tune to get you all started.
The Fratellis - Chelsea Dagger
Dun dun dun, Dun dun dun, Dun dun dun dun dun dun dun… what more need I say.
Infectious as hell and satisfying to the last ‘Dun’ this one will have you and your mates chanting along in unison.
American Authors - Best Day Of My Life
A little softer now, for those drives back when you’re all tired and reflecting on the days past.Whether you’re all tapping or whistling along this one undoubtedly brings everyone together.
Walk The Moon - Shut Up And Dance
Awakening a powerful urge to get down and party, this song is great if you’re on your way to a party or just need something to sing along to without a care.
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
For four glorious minutes we completely forget who we are, we don an accent and belt out the lyrics for all we’re worth. But, thankfully, when everyone’s taking part it sounds nothing short of epic.
So grab your mates, wind those windows down and let everyone know that you predict a riot.
The mellow movers
You might be stuck in the rain, feeling melancholic, romantic or just in need of a good uplifting tune to see you through. Worry not, we have you covered.
Of Monsters And Men - Little Talks
You can’t help but get goosebumps from this one. Clean, haunting, vocals and a powerful rhythm makes this one a perfect tune to stare out of your window at the beautiful world around you.
Oasis - Little By Little
Bob and sway along as you belt out that chorus, the legends of Britpop have a great tune to while away the time.
Avalanche City - Drive on
One for the dreamers, this song portrays the romance of those petrol fueled adventures perfectly.
Once it starts you’ll want to drive right on into that sunset and never look back.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home
Never before has a song been so satisfying to whistle along with. And no matter how good the trip away, this song will make the journey home just as amazing.
Rusted Root - Send Me On My Way
This is nothing short of a feel good classic for those moments when the windows are down and the world looks hopeful. Shame we can’t break out some we can’t break out some maracas to play along with while driving.
