Sing a Song!
For those of us preparing for a season of long travel to family holiday events, the journey there can be murder. Our generation is perhaps the last to know about “Over the River and Through the Woods” o the dreaded “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”, as reliable car stereo systems have made the need for this kind of musical malaise unnecessary.
Still, there’s something to be said for a sing-a-long on a long car trip. A good sing-a-long keeps the driver awake, occupies the kids, and sometimes, in some families, just sounds like heaven. (Just don’t get obsessive about it, like Derek from STEPBROTHERS!)
If your family has a sense of harmony and loves to sing a tune together, here’s some great Spotify options for that long road trip ahead:
This compilation is a great mix of traveling tunes and great sing-a-longs that everyone will know the lyrics by heart.
Vivodedracon’s Spotify playlist includes many great numbers to howl along with, a smattering of Weird Al Yankovic, and all some great anthems and ballads. A long list with lots of fun surprises along the way, this is one of our favorite lists.
Don’t let the name of Robyn Bryan’s playlist fool you: she’s crafted together show tunes and soundtrack bites for those up on the post-Glee musical frontier. But never fear, as modern musicals seem to recycle from pop culture more and more, you’ll be surprised by how many of these tunes you actually know!
For the truly intrepid, Chris Topher presents a playlist of traveling tunes with no vocals!
If you don’t find what you and your family want in these lists, why not make one of your own? Your creativity and the input of your family can produce a great playlist you’ll enjoy as an annual tradition. If you create your own, be sure to share it with us!
