I still live in the iPod-less dark ages, so I still enjoy making things called “mixed CDs,” instead of “playlists.” I have a road trip coming up, and after my last road trip, I decided I needed to make a road trip mix.
You know the songs — those ones that seem to be part of a soundtrack of your life, the happy, breaking-free, windows rolled down, singing at the top of your lungs songs.
Except my windows will be rolled up because I’ll be on the highway.
But just go with it.
Anyway, I have a little list started, although I know I’m missing some great ones.
Any ideas? I know that it’s hard to recommend songs for other people — sometimes music is so interwoven with events in our lives, that our ideas of “happy, breaking-free, windows rolled down, singing at the top of your lungs songs” might be different for us than for someone else. That’s the case with a number of the songs already on my list, anyway.
But I still welcome ideas.
