Road Trippin’ by Red Hot Chilli Peppers

If you love rolling your windows down and seeing what the world has to offer, this is a great song to keep you in the adventuring mood. It may be sung softly, but it can have a powerful impact on your attitude.


Vacation by the Go Gos

This is an older song, but you might've heard it on the radio or on an old episode of The Rugrats. Whether you're traveling to Hawaii to soak up the sun or just enjoying your time away from school, this song will pump you up. It embodies everything that's great about vacation. All we ever want is to relax without worrying about our responsibilities for a while, isn't it?

This song will remind you to do what you want, because it's your life. You're in charge of making your own decisions, so make good ones that'll put you in a better mood. Don't waste your life away when you have the power to make it worth living.

Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf

This song sounds best while you're cruising down the street without a worry in the world. It'll encourage you to have as much fun as you can this summer. Be on the lookout for adventure and don't turn down any opportunities. You were born to be wild, so don't hold yourself back from living an extreme life.


Shut up and Drive by Rihanna

Rihanna has a song for every occasion. This one is great to listen to when you're getting ready for a road trip. You don't need to play games or chat with your passengers to have fun. Sometimes, it's nice to just shut up and drive around.


Jump by Simple Plan

If you need encouragement to go out and live your life, this song will give it to you. You can get yourself out of your rut with a little effort. There's no need to do the same things day after day, especially if they're boring you to tears. You can always jump into a new hobby or a new job. Stop hesitating and do something that'll make life feel like it's worth living.

Even if you're not a thrill seeker, the right music can put you in the mood for a daring adventure. What's your favorite song to listen to on a road trip or before any other big event?
