What Kind Of Music Do I Take On A Road Trip?

What kind of music do I take on a road trip? This question might be priority 85 for most people. This is something I spent more time on than planning the route (or really anything) from Philly to Lake Winnipesauke, New Hampshire. The ten-hour, six-state, 437-mile drive is a long time. Podcasts are not really an option. I listen to baseball and pop-culture podcasts. My wife prefers current event and true crime podcasts. Music it is.

Cramped quarters, the usual full day that it takes for my ears to pop, and lack of sleep will hamper any enjoyment of being on a plane. Before I set foot in an airport, I stock my phone with a special flying playlist to cope with airplane anxiety. A few songs always make their way onto the list.

Elton John Bids Farewell To Philadelphia

        Two-and-a-half hours of hits. An icon on his final tour. A crowd that almost drowned out the performer on every big chorus. Elton John's concert in Philadelphia last Wednesday night was an unforgettable evening. The pop star played an epic show as he closed a chapter on a city he has played to for decades.
