My Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist

MoneySupermarket are asking bloggers to come up with their  ultimate summer driving playlist. What songs do I love to listen to on long journeys? 
Well this is easy we actually have a set of long drive favourites, they are added to as new songs come up.

1) Barcelona  Queen - Now I know that Wayne's World belted out Bohemian Rhapsody,but this warbling beauty gets us going and you better pray we have the windows up when we pass,its certainly not the Three Tenors,morelike a bad £1!

2) Elbow One Day Like This -  Its the perfect song for a journey somewhere exciting like a holiday or to a festval.

3) Summertime The Fresh Prince and Jassy Jeff. - Has to be full blast,windows down,seriously a great summer driving tune.

4) Feeling Good Muse - Title says it all.

5) James Morrison You Do Something. - We heard him sing this at Cornbury, on our list for travels to festy's

6) Beautiful Day U2 -  Its another one to belt out with the windows down and feel good you are travelling.

7) Road To Nowhere Talking Heads - This is great when you are lost and makes Chris smile if we are.

8) Everlong Foo Fighters - Best Driving song ever, possibly best song for anything

9) Born To Be Wild - My mantra for life

10) Waterboys Whole of The Moon - Its a song that is special to Chris and I,my maiden name being Mooney and we met and it was one of the songs on the jukebox,so always on in the car.

There is a serious message behind the idea of a great driving soundtrack. THINK! research suggests that almost 20% of accidents on major roads are sleep or tiredness related. Long journeys on motorways can lead to a lack of concentration and, as well as other preventative measures, listening to songs you love can be a great way to stay alert and focused on the road.

Disclosure : This is my entry for the MoneySupermarket ‘Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist’ blogger competition. Each blogger who takes part will receive £20 towards buying or downloading a driving playlist.
