With summer now in full swing, plenty of us are making plans for a big UK road trip.
We've already got you covered for 'staycation' ideas, but no summer road trip is complete without some banging tunes to entertain you along the way.
So, we've compiled our favourite driving songs into the Ultimate Summer Road Trip playlist.
But don't worry, it's not just the same old songs rehashed into a different order. While you're sure to see some of the classics, there may also be plenty that you don't recognise.
These are our favourite driving songs that we hope will soon be yours as well!
Here's how our Summer Road Trip playlist works.
106 Great Driving Songs
That's 6 hours and 31 minutes of music - plenty of choice for any road trip. It's also a lot to digest, so we've grouped these songs into different sections or 'vibes' if you will. That way, you always have total control over the mood of your journey.
'Bops' - These are the feel-good, up-beat songs you can't help but gently dance along to. Ultimately, they're the driving songs with the best summery feel, so they form the backbone of this playlist.
Easy Listening - Late summer nights = more chilled, mellow drives. These songs are slightly softer, to give your voice a chance to recover, but also keep your road trip vibe rolling.
Sing-Along Hits - We know the words. You know the words (and if you don't, you soon will). Most importantly, you won't be able to resist belting these tunes out at the top of your lungs every time they come on.
Classics & Throwbacks - Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia and no road trip playlist would be complete without these classics. There's also a couple of hidden gems that you might have forgotten just how good they are...
Proper Tunes - These songs are unskippable. Fact. No matter the mood, no matter who's in the car, when one of these driving songs comes on, they won't have any complaints.
Guilty Pleasures - Everyone has them. We don't care how embarrassed these songs might make you feel in front of your mates, we know you're going to crank up the volume as soon as you're alone in the car. Because they are all absolute belters.
Party Tunes - Raise the roof with this selection of hype songs. They're high-energy, high-octane bangers - but still restrained enough to make them great driving songs.
Radio Shuffle - A selection of big-hitting summery tunes from recent years. They're all top 20 UK singles hits with over 90 million streams on Spotify - so you've definitely heard them all before. Plenty of these driving songs fit into more than one category, so your road trip vibe won't be disrupted by sticking the playlist on shuffle!
