In our feverish excitement, we’ve been compiling our Spotify lists or – in Monika’s case (she’s old school) – CDs.
Summer Road Trip Playlist
Nic’s top five tunes for Mulling over Mull
One for the kids, but still with that bit of cool, Pharrell magic.
The PERFECT driving song. The right pace for cruising at speed.
One for feeling uplifted, and just so happens to be one of Nic’s wedding songs.
4. HAIM Edge
Anything by Haim works for Nic, you only get this one on the deluxe album. Just why are we not as cool as they are?
Obvs, Ricky has to be included. One for the journey back down the country.
We probably won’t have that hot, summer vibe in Scotland this year – but this track can help us imagine!
Monika’s Five Old Skool CDs for Cruising in Cornwall
Any of the American Recordings would do, but this one is probably Monika’s favourite. Cash’s late masterpiece.
80s classic gets a dreamy French bossa nova makeover. What’s not to like? (Ok, fans of Joy Division YOU MAY HAVE A POINT).
Rocking out to Grounds for Divorce in the car is the family’s favourite way of passing time during dull car journeys. An anthem, but hopefully not a prophetic one.
Dreamy, jazz folk guitar that offers the perfect soundscape to a long, hot journey. Look out of the window and dream. Unless you’re driving, obviously.
Before you say anything rude, just remember he’s from Glasgow.
Yes, really. On repeat if it’s sunny and Monika’s in a convertible. (She won’t be – she’ll be in the Ford S-Max – but she can open the window, feel the wind in her hair, and dream…)
It was so hard to narrow down our selection we’ve compiled a full list for you here: A Summer Road Trip Playlist. You’re welcome.
Is there anything we’ve missed?
