Sweet Tunes for Traveling...

I'm currently reading "A Visit From the Goon Squad" (if you haven't read it you freaking should it won like the Pulitzer Prize and stuff). It's about two people that work at a record label and their past lives and how all of it intertwines with music.

Now I'm inundated with all these thoughts of music and it's relationship to travel. There's nothing that goes better with a long car ride than a radio station playing your favorite jam. I really love listening to music when I travel. Most of the time I'll spend hours on a bus, train, or airplane ride just mellowing out to a new playlist on my I-pod and staring out the window watching the distances go by between where I've been and where I'm going. I have at least one song that brings back memories from every trip I've been on. It's a musical scrapbook of my adventures.

Anyways, I digress,  I made you all a playlist on Spotify because I just felt like you'd all enjoy some tunes:

I really wanted to include this song but thought you'd all disown me  Miley Cyrus – Party In The U.S.A. but let's not pretend you don't think this is the best.road.trip.song.ever.
