    Music for road trips. What used to be called mix tapes, I guess. Except now the tape is the ssd in the onboard carputer.

    I mostly like 70's and 80's, some 90's music of all sorts. Trigger my memories for what to load on the drive for my (or your) next road trip.

    Just to p** off Mrs. Pipes, I will include everything by Blondie and Madonna. But what else for easy listening, mile eating tunes? Bangles? That dizzy doctor group?

    Every road trip should start with "Low Rider".

    A lot of these will not pass the Mrs filter, however, *I* am the one that knows how to load the music on the computer so guess what...

    You guessed it. I'm going to get yelled at a lot on that trip...

    Spotify. They'll make a playlist specific for you. Their logarithm is pretty spot on too.

    old timey country music ... like Phantom 309, Giddiyup Go, White line fever, i am a truck drivin' man, truck driver's queen.

    Anything from the flying burrito brothers AND poco.

    I guess what i am trying to say, there is a certain STYLE of music that just goes really well with a long road trip.

    just avoid long allman brothers or greatful dead jam sessions...they will put you right to sleep!

    Also, when i get tired of music, i listen to sci fi books on audio. If it is a good one, you get into it, and it keeps you awake trying to figure out how it will end.

    also if your song list gets sounding tired, put in on "shuffle", which mixes it all up enough that it sounds "new"

    i recently started listening to "free audio books" on libravox on my phone.

    Two good ones:
    The dueling machine,
    the city at world's end.

    a lot of old pulp fiction books are very good, you can find them at the Travel America truck stops on cd.

    Coast to coast in mixed company I've had good success with early Fleetwood Mac (then play on, kiln house, etc.), early Richard Thompson (and/or Linda), Ten Years After (a space in time etc.), Traffic's low spark..
    Solo I go with an endless loop of "50,000 miles beneath my brain" (Alvin Lee), maybe Wishbone Ash or Savoy Brown. Lots of jazz music gets drowned out by road noise, but Oregon and Chick Corea are good bets.

    When on long road trips, I find songs that play over 9 minutes are best. One of my current favorite albums is Psychedelic Pill by Neil Young.

    At 16 minutes this isn't even the longest track on the album.

    I listen to edm on road trips.... Oakenfold at night and Armin or Carl Cox when the sun's out. Because the mixes are 1-3 hrs long the time passes... and i don't have to decide what to listen to because it's a mix... Or a bunch of synthwave tracks by mitch murder, com truise, others.... Then other times I'll be on a Steely Dan or Boz Scaggs album, or three...
