Red Hot Chili Peppers – Road Trippin’
Driving through Montana at dusk, unsure where we were, with ‘two favourite allies’…this seemed fitting!
Nujabes: ‘Dawn on the Side’ – this blissful song was the morning alarm, and blended beautifully with the emerging sunrise (YouTube)
Mac Demarco – Ode to Viceroy
Cool song with an older sound, we wound our way through mountains and old Western towns to this
Neil Young – Lotta Love
I loved singing along to the ‘la la la’ opening whilst driving through flat lands of Wyoming.
Daft Punk – Disc Wars
This dramatic music was the perfect accompaniment to driving down to the bottom of a canyon in Utah
The Doors – Back Door Man
A song to wake you up during an uneventful drive through the Nevada desert!
Jimi Hendrix – Night Bird Flying
Jimi’s wild guitar kept us awake during drives through the night looking for a place to sleep.
Led Zeppelin – Going To California
On the way to Cali, the sadness in this song linked to knowing the trip was soon coming to an end.
The Black Keys – The Only One
The beautiful, fresh and youthful Oregon coastline made this chilled-out tune come into my head.
Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On
A song that makes you want to close your eyes and dance, especially on Highway 101 it seems!
