If you’re looking for the perfect sound track for an upcoming trip and don’t know what artists or tracks you should add to your Spotify playlist, you’ve come to the right place. Simply continue reading to discover some of the best music to listen to while you’re traveling.
If you’re looking for the perfect tunes to listen to while driving along the coast in Hawaii or lounging on Waikiki Beach on a sunny day, it’s well worth listening to classic Elvis Presley tracks. Especially as Elvis filmed three movies in Hawaii. Blue Hawaii which was shot in 1961, Girls! Girls! Girls!, which was released in 1962 and Paradise Hawaiian Style which was released in 1966. Some examples of Elvis songs which you should add to your vacation playlist, even if you’re not planning on visiting Hawaii in the near future include Can’t Help Falling in Love, Love Me Tender and I’ll Remember You.
If you prefer listening to music which is a little more modern, you may want to full your travel playlists with tunes from artists such as Camilla Cabello, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber. You may even want to add a few tracks from slightly older artists such as Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift to your travel playlist.
Classic rock anthems:
If you are partial to singing in the car at the top of your lungs on a road trip or beach trip, you can’t go wrong adding a few classic rock anthems from a few big names to your travel playlist. For example, if you’re a fan of rock songs, you may want to add Born to Run from Bruce Springsteen, Back in Black from ACDC and Here We Go Again from Whitesnake to your brand new travel playlist. You may even want to ask your parents or older friends for recommendations, if you were born after rock had it’s day in the sun.
Songs from local artists:
As you can listen to Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish anytime if you really want to immerse yourself into another country and culture, it’s a great idea to try listening to local artists each time that you travel to a new location. For example, if you visit Paris for the first time you may want to listen to music from classic French artists such as Edith Piaf as well as contemporary French artists, such as Amel Bent. To find potential artists who you may enjoy listening to, simply search for the top charts from the country that you plan on visiting. As while the chart is sure to feature international artists, it’s likely to include a couple of domestic artists who are worth listening to.
So if you are about to plan your next whirlwind trip and have been looking for inspiration when it comes to compiling a playlist for your trip, it’s well worth taking note of the suggestions listed above.
