It’s Summer Playlist Time!

The other day, someone recently brought it to my attention that I hadn’t done a new summer playlist…how silly of me! I truly believe that having the perfect background music for your journey is essential. Your musical selections can enhance your travel experience ten fold! Here are some options to get your playlist started for your last minute summer road trips with Preferred Motorcoach Transportation! 🙂

 

Silento – ‘Watch Me’

I’m sure you’ve either heard this song or at least have seen references to the dance moves. If not, it’s time to move from under the rock where you’ve been living. This is one of THE songs of the summer! Everyone has been dancing along including America’s new national treasure, Riley Curry. Full disclosure: I have a love/hate relationship with this song. It gets on my nerves but I love it at the same time. It’s SUPER catchy. You’ll be dancing right along after just a few minutes.

 

Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar – ‘Bad Blood’

This features Kendrick Lamar. That’s enough for me!

 

Whitney Houston – ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’

So you know that moment when you’ve been on the road for HOURS and you need a little pick me up because you can’t even anymore? Turn on this song. Immediately. Classic 80’s Whitney always wakes me up! It’s fun, upbeat, and just as that carefree summer feel to it. When you get restless on the road, crank up this jam and thank me later.

 

The Weeknd – ‘Can’t Feel My Face’

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/KEI4qSrkPAs&#8221; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen><!–iframe>

This song has an MJ feel to me. It makes me want to get up, put on some penny loafers and, well, I can’t really dance at all but I jig a little. Anyway, The Weeknd (I still can’t figure out why he decided to ditch the ‘e’, but whatevs) makes EXCELLENT music. And this is one of his one of my new favorites of his!

 

Janelle Monae – ‘Yoga’

Janelle rocks! Everything she touches turns to pure gold. This is a fact. So, her latest single is no exception. This song is so much fun! I’m not good at yoga, like, at all, but that doesn’t matter. I jam this! And it’s perfect for the open road!

 

Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars – ‘Uptown Funk’

I LOVE this song. It’s catchy, upbeat, and so much fun! It has summer vibes, a summer beat, and it just screams summer. When it comes on, you will immediately turn up, because those are the rules. Mark Ronson, who produced the song, has a real gift and it shines through on this song!

 

Beyonce – ‘7/11’

Because Beyonce. Any questions?

 

Will Smith – ‘Summertime’

I’ve put this on a summer playlist piece before. I know. Let it go. The song is called ‘Summertime’, for crying out loud! It will go on EVERY summer playlist I ever make. #SorryNotSorry

 

 

So, what songs are in your travel rotation these days? Let me know in the comments!

Summer Summer Summer Time: Summer Road Trip Playlist!

Well… Summer is upon us!! I am not a fan of heat, but I love the summertime vibe. Summer is chill and laid back and the perfect time for summer road trips! Of course that means a new playlist. Because you can’t have just one. My music taste is so eclectic, so the songs on my list come from all different genres, but the vibes are all the same; SUMMER FUN. Music will definitely help pass the time on the long trips so if you’re heading out on the road this summer and need some ideas for car tunes, here are some of my favorite summer road trip songs!

 

Umbrella

Rihanna ft. Jay Z

I try to not be a Rihanna fan. I really do. But that girl just keeps putting out music that I really love! And Umbrella just makes me want to dance!

 

 

Treasure

Bruno Mars

This is the PERFECT car sing-a-long song! TREASURRRRRRRRE! THAT’S. JUST. WHAT. YOU. AREEEEEEEEE!

 

 

American Boy

Estelle ft. Kanye West

I really like this song. It just has…vibes. So much vibes.

 

 

Happy

Pharrell

Yes this song has been all over the place. OH WELL. I love it still! And in moderation, it really is perfect for being on the road.

 

 

Love Never Felt So Good

Michael Jackson ft. Justin Timberlake

One of the new previously unreleased MJ songs, this was my favorite on the album! Just like Umbrella, this song just makes me want to dance! And I do not dance well. But that’s ok!

 

 

Viva La Vida

Coldplay

During a trip from Dallas to Austin once, I played this on repeat for a good 30 minutes. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t the unofficial 5th member of Coldplay. It’s a very infectious song so I have a feeling it will have the same effect on most of you. So, sing to your heart’s content. You won’t be able to help yourself.

 

 

Get Up

Mary Mary

Such a motivational song! This song will certainly get everyone up and at ’em. Especially when you were supposed to have left 30 minutes ago but someone is holding everyone up…

 

 

End Of Time

Beyoncé

This is fist pumping greatness. Queen Bey never rarely disappoints me. (Don’t tell The Beygency…)

 

 

Valerie

Mark Ronson ft. Amy Winehouse

Amy’s soulful voice is PERFECT for a summer playlist. And this song is so much fun to sing-a-long with also!

 

 

Get Lucky

Daft Punk

Those French robots struck gold with this one. I’ve never gotten tired of it! #vibes

 

 

And last but not least…

 

Summertime

DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince

This is THE official song of all summers from 1991 until the end of time. This is not up for debate. Bye.
