    So I've been thinking about (and compiling) a playlist of songs we'll drive down to southern Europe with. Are there any albums or songs that are a must to cruise along taking in the scenery to?

    I'm afraid we use CDs! Very old school!! And so our collection is quite eclectic! But ones we both sing along to are the power Ballards or rock ones! Get funny looks from other cars and vehicles but who cares. Enjoy !!

    We have a 6 disc changer in our rv and load up before each journey. Mix of rock, pop, sing a long and even some classic or Andre Rieux is a favourite. Must look strange to other drivers as we're either singing our heads off, head banging or conducting the orchestra!

    It's funny but over time we listen less and less to music when we are travelling. If we are in the UK we will listen to the radio and if we listen abroad then it's probably the i-pod with its 7000+ songs on shuffle. We very rarely listen at all now on the bike.

    We listen to a lot of Cafe del Mar, however this is my favourite 'on the road' song.

    We use spotify exclusively now in the van. It's easy to share and find playlists.
    Beautiful Monster is my weakness for singing along to though.
