Welcome to the eighth episode of our Friday travel tunes. We are a mere ten days away from Summer, even though the temperatures today would trick me into thinking we are in the middle of it.
Today’s lineup is another big mix of tunes and artists – I’m keeping my fingers crossed there is at least one track you can appreciate. And remember – if you think my taste in music sucks, feel free to post your own picks in the comments section and we may feature it in an upcoming episode!
If the temperature is any kind of indication, I’d say summer arrived early this year. And for me, summer is when I refresh my playlist to a more upbeat assortment of music. In today’s episode of Travel Tunes you’ll find a bit of everything – from The Pretty Reckless, all the way to the soothing tunes of Katie Melua.
Hopefully you’ve got some travel coming up, but if not, grab a cold drink and find yourself a spot in the sun and relax to these tunes. And yes – if you find this selection to suck, please feel free to leave your own top ten in the comments! Enjoy the long weekend!
I’ve recently found myself in the midst of quite a few road trips, and nothing helps the miles go by like fantastic tunes. And beautiful scenery, of course. This week, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite jams to keep humming in the background while cruising around America’s finest scenic byways, and it just so happens that every single one of them relates directly to travel. Some might say a travel writer gravitates towards tunes such as these, but we’re chalking it up to a beautiful run-in with Ms. Serendipity.
Fire this up on your Android smartphone the next time you’re out and about on the open road, and see if any of these lyrics stir your soul, strike your fancy or just take you back. Wherever back may be. Just about everywhere is covered here, to multiple boroughs of New York City, to the fine lines of North Carolina, to the wild freeways of Germany, to the sweet tea-servin’ shacks of Georgia, to the ever-changing landscapes of California. And with that, we’ll see you on the pavement!
Our travel tunes lineup for this week comes from reader Tony – when we asked readers to drop us a note with their own playlist, I hadn’t expected to receive such an awesome assortment of tunes. Thanks Tony!
So, as is required on a Friday, grab a drink, sit back, and relax to these tunes – and think of travel!
(Apologies for the duplicate tunes, Grooveshark has been having some “issues” lately).
Still enjoying our weekly dose of travel tunes? My lineup for today includes a mix of several styles of music, along with a couple of current hits. These are all heavily played on my iPhone/Zune/Archos, and are the kind of tunes that put me in the mood to travel.
Next week, we’ll have the first of (hopefully) many reader submitted playlists. But for now, pop on your headphones, crank up the volume, and prepare yourself for the weekend with some Gadling Travel Tunes.
