To me, “roadtrip music” means familiar sing-out-loud songs. “Classics.” Honestly, for the most part, I have rather pedestrian taste in music. So I look to my streaming service to surprise me with their pre-selected hits from the sixties, seventies and/or eighties. (Hey, hush… there’s no shame in that.)
So, on Sunday, as we headed out on our two-hour drive to the American River, SJ started up one of these classic mixes. Soon, each of the following songs played. I told her they were on the “personal soundtrack of my life.” She was mildly amused (which is about all you can ask for from a 15-year-old).
— Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”
— Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing”
— Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walking”
— Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop”
Notice a theme? LOL! Folks, I am nothing if not resilient af.
What survivor anthems am I missing? What do you dear readers recommend I add to this playlist?
