Calling All Discophiliacs: Taking Requests for our Rockin’ Road Trip Playlist

music-note Everyone knows that music is an essential variable in the road trip equation… We know that a lot of you are total music enthusiasts, so what better than to ask you all what we should listen to during our fabulously looong journey for IM Road Trip?

Our tastes in music covers quite an expansive variety of tunes.  Pam grew up listening to country in the square states, played in orchestra through high school,  and can now be caught singing in her car to everything from Snoop Dogg to Neil Diamond.  I played in symphonic and jazz bands through high school, jammed in a rock band in college, and now find myself enjoying the sweet and soft rhymes of Lil Wayne.

We like pretty much all types of music, as long as it’s good.  Though, we have no real definition of “good”… other than the absolute fact that: whatever we happen to like for whatever reason = good;)   For example: “Blue Train” by John Coltrane is good… “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters is good… “Fortunate Son” by CCR is good… “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice is good… “Mason Jar” by Deliverance Machine is good… “Mope” by Bloodhound Gang is good… “No Handlebars” by the Flobots is good… “One More Drink” by Ludacris is good… “Girl on TV” by LFO is good… Now, try to formulate a rhyme or reason for that collection of songs! :P

So, we will be accepting any and all requests… Just make sure they are good!

im-road-tripAlso, we’ve had some extremely generous internet marketers offer up some super sweet benefits for our IM Road Trip sponsors, so don’t miss out on this AWESOME opportunity to get over $1400 worth of the best internet marketing tools for just $150!

    Nice, but how will we know if you listen? Lately I’ve been listening to The Cinematic Orchestra, and Mos Def nonstop. ADD IT NOW!

    Just for Pam :)

    Nickelback – Something In Your Mouth
    Rammstein – Te Quiero Puta
    Buckcherry – Crazy Bitch

    …but seriously, some good road trip music (based on my use of them in about 25,000 miles in road trips over the past 3 years) –

    Deep Purple – Highway Star
    Disturbed – Inside the Fire
    Lynyrd Skynyrd & Kid Rock – Gimme Back My Bullets
    Wolfmother – Joker and the Thief
    Steppenwolf – Magic Carpet Ride
    Muse – Knights of Cydonia
    Living Things – Bom Bom Bom
    ZZ Top – La Grange
    Megadeth – Moto Psycho
    Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower
    CCR – Run Through the Jungle
    Bob Seger – Turn the Page
    Allman Brothers – Midnight Rider
    Puddle of Mudd – Control
    Godsmack – Awake
    Metallica – Wherever I May Roam
    AC/DC – Highway to Hell
    Ozzy Osbourne – Mr. Crowley
    Korn – Coming Undone
    Trapt – Headstrong
    Helmet – Unsung
    Powerman 5000 – Ultra Mega

    You’ll want a good overall mix…stuff to keep you awake is generally best from what I’ve tried. Movie scores can have good music, but are generally either to mellow or repetitive to keep you alert when driving long distances.

    Hmm…I could sit here for hours and type in a whole list of the heaviest, sickest, metal that is on constant rotation in my playlist, but I know your tolerance for my style after living with you for so many years.

    So, if I may make just ONE recommendation, it is “Halo” by Machine Head. Easily the greatest metal song released in the past ten years, and greatest ballad since “One”. Warning: you’ll be trying to master that riff on your guitar before long!

    I’d rather recommend something of Reamonn, One Republic, Nickleback, The All-American Rejects.They are really great!
