Depending on where you live, spring break is either here or quickly approaching, and even with a mild winter, many are planning to escape to a tropical location. As always, with travel, I believe that bringing along good music is absolutely crucial.
Music has many purposes and brings the journey to life. So, here are a few tunes to download before you head off on your next big adventure.
As much as I love getting to places, it can often be the time when music is needed the most. There’s only so much one can take when there are several hours of babies crying and screaming or crazy television shows playing. Music helps you slip away to your own little happy place, it helps you sleep, and it’s completely relaxing for any stress that comes up during your trip. Here are a couple of my favorite songs for transit:
The A Team Ed Sheeran
Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise The Avett Brothers
Rills Rills Sleigh Bells
The Lion’s Roar First Aid Kit
Mykonos Fleet Foxes
Lost in My Mind The Head and the Heart
Heartbeats Jose Gonzalez
Falling Slowly Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
But, spring break is also all about fun, and hopefully, relaxing on a beach somewhere. I know that when I am on the beach, I need music whether I’m relaxing with a book or drinking a margarita. Here are my favorite beach songs:
Somewhere Over the Rainbow Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole
Toes Zac Brown Band
Letting Go (Dutty Love) Sean Kingston Ft. Nikki Minaj
Why You Wanna Go Sean Kingston
Brighter Than The Sun Colbie Caillat
Lucky Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat
Finally, music is always needed in getting ready for a night out. Maybe you’re just heading out for dinner or planning on dancing the night away, but sometimes it isn’t always easy to transition from long days out to night time adventures. These songs are perfect for pumping you up and reenergizing you for some night life:
Loca People Sak Noel feat. Pitbull
We Run The Night Havana Brown feat. Pitbull
Turn Up the Music Chris Brown
Dutty Love Don Omar Ft. Natti Natasha
Bailando Por El Mundo Juan Magan Feat. Pitbull Y El Cata
No matter what you are doing this spring break, these songs are sure to be the perfect soundtrack for your getaway.
