When people think about camping, they often think about the checklist to get the food, gear and clothing. But, for us, there is always an additional to-do to get to-done. Music selections.
Inevitably, on a 6-hour drive, one of the children will say, “Daddy, can you play some music?” On that front, I never want to disappoint.
One day, I have a goal to mashup all of the car sing-alongs and dance-offs from our years of camping. Until then, use your imagination and jam out to my first Car Dance Off playlist.
X Ambassadors — “Boom”
“I said, hey, uh huh, you can’t stop me; ‘Cause my pain, uh huh, is gasoline (Ooh)”
Spencer Ludwig — “Diggy”
“Don’t fail me now; Feet don’t fail me now; Don’t fail me now; Feet don’t fail me now.”
Phil J. — “Crazy”
“Less talk, where the action yo (where that-action yo?); If you a fraud, I say adios; I’m a battleship to these paddleboats (to these paddleboats);
Using my gift, bringing you some hope; I’ma dream big, real crazy (ayy)”
Bombargo — “Oxygen”
“Tornado, I see you coming around; Don’t let go, you know I’m holding you down; People shouldn’t change like the weather, man; People shouldn’t change if they innocent; People act strange when it’s getting out of beat; So let me be your oxygen.”
Judah & The Lion — “Folk-Hop Sound”
“Now lean to the left; and lean to the right; now shake it, shake it, do your jive; shake it, now give yourself a high five.”
Imagine Dragons (With K. Flay) — “Thunder Remix”
“Not a yes sir, not a follower; Fit the box, fit the mold; Have a seat in the foyer, take a number; I was lightning before the thunder.”
Hullabahoos — “weight in Gold”
“I’m pulling my weight in gold; Call me anxious, call me broke; But I can’t lift this on my own; Pulling my weight in gold.”
Jamiroquai — “Canned Heat”
“Dance, nothing left for me to do but dance; Off these bad times I’m going through just dance; Got canned heat in my heals tonight baby.”
Serena Ryder — “Stompa”
“People looking for the great escape; Looking to the greener side; Trying to find a better way; Slow down, open up your big brown eyes; Feel the rhythm in your heart; You don’t even need to try.”
Daya — “Sit Still, Look Pretty”
“You get off on your nine to five; Dream of picket fences and trophy wives; But no, I’m never gonna be, ’cause I don’t wanna be; No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty.”
A-ha — “Take On Me”
“We’re talking away; I don’t know what; I’m to say I’ll say it anyway; Today’s another day to find you.”
Chic — “Le Freak”
“Have you heard about the new dance craze?; Listen to us, I’m sure you’ll be amazed; Big fun to be had by everyone; It’s up to you, it surely can be done.”
Black Coast, M. Maggie — “Trndsttr (Lucian Remix)”
“Bulletproof on another level, I hit up the crew; Select never settles, it only gets better the more you see.”
