#8 - Your Summertime Road Trip Mix

Let's go on a road trip!

Maths has never been my strong point. You see, apparently I can't seem to grasp the very basic concept of counting. I started filling out the Music Listography book last year, highlighting my favourite songs, bands, albums and more in various lists. I thought I was currently up to list #13. I was wrong. Somewhere along the way I decided 8 was a number we could all learn to live without, so we're going to rectify that right now with the next entry in our life in lists. Since it's (the saddest) summer (ever), now's a pretty good time to bust out the twenty songs I love to get my road trip on with.

Before we get to that though, why not have a quick read through the 12 11 lists we've already done up!

To fill out your own handy Music Listography bible, track it down on Amazon and celebrate your life in music.

#8 - Your Summertime Road Trip Mix

Who doesn't enjoy going for a good old road trip in the summer? There are some essential things you're going to need to make a road trip a roaring success. First things first, you're going to need a car. Preferably one that can drive long distances. Second, you need the weather to be awesome. I know, I know... you don't have control of the weather yet. You will someday, but not now. Until then, make sure it's going to be a pretty sweet day before planning an RT. An ice-cold drink will come in handy, but most importantly, you're going to need an excellent selection of music. Optional things to bring with you include a satellite phone, water to last three days, a map and some sort of weapon you know how to use. I've seen Wrong Turn, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes. Bad things can happen to good people! Oh... don't forget to find some friends, for they can increase your survival chances. I mean... a road trip is way more fun with people you like and stuff?
