Alexa & Judith's Epic Summer Read-along || A Road Trip Playlist

Music was a big part of Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. Both Amy and Roger shared a bit of their musical tastes with us, and I absolutely adored that the playlists were included in the book. Inspired by that, Judith & I are sharing ten tracks (among the many more) that we would want on our road trip playlists. Don't forget to go over to Paperiot to see Judith's picks!

Sunday Morning - Maroon 5
I am not a morning person, so the relaxed, easy vibe of this song is perfect for the start of the day.
{I would gladly hit the road, get up and go if I knew / that someday it would lead me back to you}

A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton
In Macky's words, why not? It's still relaxed, but it's a song I always want to sing along to.
{You know I'd walk a thousand miles / if I could just see you tonight}

Party in the USA - Miley Cyrus
I just couldn't avoid including this one because it makes me chair dance every. single. time.
{So, I throw my hands up / they're playing my song / I know I'm gonna be okay}

22 - Taylor Swift
I might not be 22, but seriously, this song has such a fun vibe! Plus, I love T. Swift to death.
{We're happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time / It's miserable and magical}

Summer - Calvin Harris
I feel like this is a good, upbeat song for right when you start driving again after a rest stop.
{When I met you in the summer | to my heartbeat sound | we fell in love}

Perfect Day - Lady Antebellum
Windows down, feet on the dashboard, fingers tapping to the beat. Yes please!
{Ain't worried about tomorrow | when you're busy living in a perfect day}

Good Life - One Republic
I can imagine this on repeat during that quiet moment when the sun begins to set. One of my faves!
{Day turns night / night turns to whatever we want / we're young enough to say / oh, this has gotta be a good life}

A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay
With the sun down and the stars out, I can imagine car dancing and singing along with this.
{'Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark / I'm gonna give you my heart}

Tenerife Sea - Ed Sheeran
As we near the end of the road trip, it'll be nice to relax and reminisce to this pretty little song.
{You've got the kind of look in your eyes / as if no one knows anything but us}

Lost Stars - Adam Levine
I couldn't resist throwing this in there! It's a good way to end the playlist at night, if you ask me.
{Or are we all lost stars / trying to light up the dark?}

These are just ten of the songs I'd include on a road trip mix, as I would also most likely toss in fun karaoke type tunes, the Spice Girls and all of the boy band songs and Disney songs too. Don't forget to go and see what Judith has on her playlist!

What songs would you put on your road trip playlist? Do share in the comments!


  1. I love this playlist! Catchy and fun, these are some excellent songs to sing along to! :) & I'm excited to see a few new-to-me songs too!

  2. Eeek! I LOVE this playlist! I think any song by Maroon 5 is road trip worthy. So glad you threw some Coldplay in there as well. Can't believe Jennifer Lawrence is dating Chris Martin. I mean, double you tee eff, right?

  3. I love this playlist! Even though I don't really like Miley, that party in the USA song is just so catchy! Plus I love taylor swift. also I'd def include One Direction on my playlist because they are SO good to sing along to in the car!! also love lady antebellum and one republic - basically this is all awesome. :)
