Mix: Driving

Gas prices may be testing your paycheck, but festival season, Spring Break and mini vacations must go on. We can’t fill up your gas tank, but we can suggest music for the ride. When The Spec launched in August 2011, we shared our favorite road trip songs and now we’re back with more.

Hear The Spec’s suggestions for driving tunes below…

One of my favorite things to do is drive alone, with the windows down, listening to music. Each one of my picks below are best for sunny days and long drives.

Artist: Yeasayer | Song: Mondegreen

Artist: Penguin Prison | Song: The Worse it Gets

Artist: iamamiwhoami| Song: ;John

Artist: Kid Cudi feat. MGMT | Song: Pursuit of Happiness

Artist: Niki & The Dove | Song: The Fox


Artist: Best Coast | Song: Sun Was High (So Was I)
I like Best Coast all the time but especially on sunny days, with or without traffic.

Artist: Vacationer | Song: Trip
Vacationer’s name says it all. This particular track sounds best during afternoon drives with passengers.

Artist: Leonard Cohen | Song: So Long, Marianne
Cohen is the ultimate for long drives.

Artist: Koop | Song: Koop Island Blues
This song is perfect for smooth drives in rainy, gloomy weather.

Artist: Levek | Song: Creature Creeper
I bring Levek out with the moon and stars. Their music is ideal for nighttime rides.
