Open roads, the promise of adventure and memories to be made! These are all the things that make road trips special. However, there is another thing without which road trips are incomplete – music.

It automatically connects to your phone and plays music from it, lets you use your voice to make calls, and most importantly, helps you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
So, what are you waiting for? Go through our list of amazing genres that will be perfect for every mood and hum away!
Bollywood’s Golden Oldies
There’s a reason why tracks like Kishore Kumar’s ‘Zindagi Ek Safar’, Lata Mangeshkar’s ‘Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh’ and Kishore Kumar’s ‘Mere Sapno Ki Rani’ are classics. They are melodious, soothing and lyrically perfect for a memorable sing-along road trip, even if it’s just for the weekend.
Bollywood’s Modern Jukebox
If you prefer something that resonates more with today’s sound, you have a wonderful selection of music to pick from. Turn up the volume on recent hits like ‘Ilahii’ from Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani, ‘Patakha Guddi’ from Highway or ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ from Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara that celebrate freedom and the spirit of exploration.
The Romantic 90s
Picture this- you’re driving down beautiful hilly roads with your better half beside you. How do you set the mood? From ‘Do Dil Mil Rahe Hain (Pardes) to ‘Ye Haseen Wadiyan’ from (Roja) to the title track of the film ‘Saathiya’, Bollywood has some of the most beautiful music for the romantic in you.
Rock’s Greatest Hits
Nothing compliments a road trip like a playlist featuring some of rock’s most memorable gems like Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born to Run’, ‘Wilson Pickett’s ‘Mustang Sally’ or even Jon Bon Jovi’s ‘Living on a Prayer’. The best part? You can belt out all the high notes with your best friends as you whoosh along the highway.
Easy Listening Favourites
If mellow music is what you crave as you cruise along empty roads and scenic views, turn on some soft, light-hearted tracks. Eagles’ ‘Take it Easy’, John Denver’s ‘Country Roads’ and Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’ are some of the many songs that can do both- calm your mind and lift your spirits as you drive.
Pop’s Latest Hits
For something less noisy, but just as cool, today’s trendy pop music offers a range of choices. From Ed Sheeran’s chart-topping ‘Shape of You’ to Sia’s dance staple- ‘Cheap Thrills’ to Coldplay and Beyonce’s fan favorite ‘Hymn for the Weekend’, the choice for fun, groovy music is endless.
So, the next time you want a break from the mundane, head out of town with your friends, family or significant other and let these songs set the tone for a truly memorable trip.
