CarsTravelFood: New (Old) Road Trip Music
Huffington Post - over 4 years
More Americans go on road trips in the summer than any other time of year and part of the fun is -- what songs do we want to hear on the playlist?
Sometimes it's good ol' reliable James Taylor (can never go wrong with his melodic, upbeat tunes) or perhaps the catchy summer hit that's spawned a gazillion YouTube covers "Call Me Maybe" by Canadian Idol contestant Carly Rae Jepsen who told Nightline that she thought of her song as a modern day "Walking On Broken Glass" from Eurythmics.
Some of us love our SiriusXM satellite radio because unlike terrestrial radio of old, if you were cruising on a seemingly deserted highway in places like New Mexico, there used to be a dearth of channel selections back in the day. This way, you can listen to a channel that time warps you instantly back to relive a period of time, rediscover old hits we forgot about and always have your favorite channel available and tune into what others are listening to at the same time in the country.
