There is always another public holiday on the horizon that gives you the opportunity to take a road trip and get away from it all. Long journeys definitely need a soundtrack that perfectly sets the mood, so the perfect playlist is a must when going on a long journey. Here are our top tips to create the best playlist!
1 Know your audience
When creating your playlist, you should know what the people you’re travelling with are into in terms of their music taste. You can even ask for suggestions prior to the trip. A good playlist has something that everyone can enjoy and sing along to.
2 There is no limit
When creating your playlist, don’t stress if your playlist is so long that it could never be listened to in one trip. No one wants to run out of music and having an extended playlist to shuffle through means you and your passengers have a better chance of not being bored!
3 It’s okay to be cheesy
Everyone has a few guilty pleasures or REALLY cheesy songs that they like, so why not add it to your playlist? Especially if there’s songs that a lot of people know and can sing along to. It’s a confined space so belting out ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey is completely acceptable.
4 Keep the goodies for the end
You might add some club hits in your playlist and that’s alright (and recommended) but keep them for the end of your journey. Long trips can be draining so having some major hits for the final legs of your trip will keep you energised and alert.
5 Know your car and be flexible
Know the car you’re going to be travelling in. Find out if you need an aux cord or if you need any special gadgets for your device. It’s also completely fine if someone wants to take a break from your playlist and listen to something else. A great trip and playlist is a group effort!
