Nothing sucks more than being stuck on the road during rush hour – especially if you’re driving that brand new Toyota Altis from the Philippines for the first time. However, you can still make the most of your situation by listening to some good tunes (and perhaps a bit of singing along). Start with these catchy ones, listed below.
I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepsen
If you think you’re through with Carly Rae Jepsen after her hit Call Me Maybe, think again! Her single I Really Like You is definitely another chart topper you should listen to. Play it, and find out why this song keeps on finding itself lodged in many teenagers’ road trip playlists. Play it, and you’ll soon sing along to it!
Learn To Fly by The Foo Fighters
Run and tell all of the angels, this could take all night… explains perfectly how you’d feel when you find yourself stuck in EDSA during rush hour. Who wouldn’t want to fly over that hellish traffic and get to their destination in a trice, after all? Whatever your interpretation for that song is, you have to admit that this is one great song to listen to while behind the wheel.
Bad Blood by Taylor Swift
It’s hard not to like Taylor Swift. Off her first pop album 1989, this song recently won “Video of the Year” at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Listen to its catchy chorus, and whatever bad blood you have for Taylor Swift would vanish in a flash. Indeed, this song is one of the reasons she keeps on conquering the charts single after single.
Shalala Lala by the Vengaboys
What better way to perk up during traffic hours than by clapping to the chorus of this famous song every time it comes on! For sure, you won’t feel sleepy at the wheel once this song starts playing on the audio system. You might even be tempted to dance along (just make sure the car is at a full stop first)!
I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
While some might associate this song with creepy cockroaches (thanks to an old pesticide television ad years ago), it’s actually a great song to listen to while stuck in traffic. So treat it as the power song it is, and remind yourself that you can indeed survive the horrible traffic in front of you. Or as you approach your destination, play the next song as you smile in success.
We Are the Champions by Queen
If you’re now nearing your journey’s end, get ready to celebrate by blasting this song of triumph inside your car. In a 2005 poll held by Sony Ericson, this 1977 tune was voted as the world’s most favorite song. In 2009, We Are the Champions finally got the worldwide recognition it deserves by being inducted into the prestigious Grammy Hall of Fame, proving that Queen is indeed the champion.
There’s really no point in complaining about you being late or about the incompetence of this and that people. It won’t make the traffic go away. But listening to good songs could help dispel the bad vibes you might be feeling at the moment. So when stuck on the road during rush hour, just play some music and wait it out.
