Creating and curating playlists is one of my guilty pleasures. It’s something I always do when I feel stressed or overwhelmed and it somehow always manages to ease my nerves and calms me. The perfect Roadtrip playlist, however, was a real challenge. So I decided to give the task into the helping hands of my community. I went on Instagram and asked my followers to name one song that absolutely needs to be on a roadtrip playlist and so many people submitted their choice.
The Ultimate Roadtrip Playlist, curated by the community
After the poll on Instagram was live for 24 hours I sat down and went through the list. Some of the classics were named multiple times – 500 miles being the one song that was named over and over again. I get it, it needs to be on there. It would probably have been my pick as well. I assembled the playlist without listening to the songs first.
When I finally listened through the finished playlist I couldn’t believe it, all the songs fit together perfectly. Somehow, without knowing what my idea behind the question sticker on Instagram stories was, the community assembled an amazing playlist.
I have published the playlist with 50+ songs on my Spotify account and linked it below. You can head over there and listen to it if you want to. To me, it is the perfect autumnal cozy chill playlist that I would either listen to while chilling at home, reading a book with a tea in my hand and a candle burning in the background. Or, as intended, while driving through beautiful scenery in a car. No matter what season.
It’s a chill, laid back collection of songs from all musical genres and times.
The ultimate roadrip playlist so to speak.
