A good music playlist, like a good trip, changes pace from along the way. The initial frenetic energy generated by the anticipation and adrenaline that initiates a trip is followed by a calming lull as you catch your breath and begin to settle into your new surroundings. As your trip meanders in unexpected directions, your music should accompany you like a good friend.
At the end of your trip, as you board your flight home or drive those final miles of a road trip, you simply need the sweet sounds of Lionel Richie to let you know that you’ve survived.
