The Effect of Music On a Road Trip

carLast weekend we loaded up the van and hit the road for a little road trip. It was about a six hour round trip, so I filled up my new iPod Shuffle, plugged it into my FM transmitter and shuffled my way to Pinery and back.

Never underestimate the positive effect of a good music mix on a road trip. I was singing along with every track, loving every minute of it. I didn't even notice I was driving, it was heaven. I never heard the same song twice and I started wishing the road trip was longer just so I could finish the 1GB of music I had lined up.

With the right music, everything is tolerable. It makes all the difference in the world. It's everything.

We did the iPod game on our road trip last month. While my children are a little older, we each took turns going round the car picking our next favourite song to listen/sing to. Yes, I had to hear Crazy Frog more than I wanted to, but it's got a good beat and good to dance to!

You said it... Music is the soundtrack to our lives..

I remember that very well. Good times listening to those tunes. I remember finding an old 8-track in the garage as a kid and thinking "people used to listen to music on this???". That is how kids must feel now about tapes.
