Playlist: Concerts in Your Car

By Deanna Frances

If you’re planning any long trips home or just looking for some good music to rock out to on your way to class, be sure to check out these songs:

1. “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten

I love listening to this song in the car, because it’s the perfect song for motivation. The empowering lyrics, “This is my fight song. Take back my life song, prove I’m alright song,” make it a very upbeat and fun sing along song that you can sing whenever you need motivation or just want to jam with your friends.

2. “Hello” by Adele

This song may not be as upbeat as “Fight Song,” but it’s the perfect song to sing along to. As one of this year’s most popular songs, it’s a great song to jam to that many people know. An attempt to imitate the vocal power of Adele is a great choice, even if you can’t hit all the notes.

3. “Same Old Love” by Selena Gomez

This song is one of my favorites right now because of its unique tempo and rhythm. Its catchy melody and easy to understand words make it a good song to listen to in the car. It’s also a completely different feel for Selena Gomez, who I remember from the Disney Channel.

4. “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King

This song is another catchy tune that many people now, which makes it a good song to sing along to with your friends. I love its fun lyrics, and my friends and I love listening to it because we can all easily belt out all of the lyrics effortlessly.

5. “Cheerleader” by Omi

This song is also one of my favorites right now. The singer’s unique voice makes it a cool song to listen to. It doesn’t blend in with other popular music right now, and that’s a good thing in my book. This is an easy song to sing with, and it’s played on the radio so often that it’s easy to hear it in the car.
