A Dashing Through the Snow Book & Road Trip Soundtrack

Dashing Through the Snow Debbie Macomber

Dashing Through the Snow & A Road Trip Soundtrack

I’m currently reading Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber. So far the main characters have been on a Road Trip. And that had me thinking of some go-to music for Road Trips.

Welcome to my Road Trip Songs for this book.

Free Ride & Dazed and Confused

Free Ride by Edgar Winter. Scene in the movie Dazed and Confused (1993). (There’s also the song Slow Ride by Foghat, and same movie – ending scene.

You Could Be Mine & The Terminator

You Could Be Mine by Guns N’ Poses…  I mean, Guns N’ Roses. But not just because of the band or song. I picked this song because of the Terminator. The song is in 2 of the movies.

(My favorite video)…
Terminator 4: Salvation (John hot-wires a “Moto-Terminator”.)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day — The Song. (if you don’t want to listen to the song, but want to see the infamous chase scene, here it is).

Tiny Dancer & Almost Famous

Tiny Dancer by Elton John and the movie Almost Famous. You won’t be able to not want to sing along with them

Downtown by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Riding around the city in mopeds.

Kings and Queens by 30 Seconds To Mars

Who says one needs a vehicle for a Road Trip?

Believe by Mumford & Sons

The video has a good nightlife driving scene.

Open Your Eyes by Snow Patrol

Another driving video

  1. You are absolutely right, Michelle. Every time I hear the song I sing, “Hold me close young Tony Danza!” It was unacceptable this post has sat here so long without that joke in the comments section. That needed to be rectified.

    Me and my parents used to go to Tahoe during the summer. When I was young we would listen to The Doors, Huey Lewis & The News, The Beach Boys, Journey, Foreigner, Queen, Neil Sedaka, The Beatles, The Guess Who, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, and many more. A lot of great music is firmly embedded in my mind thanks to Tahoe being a few hours from the Bay Area. Although, L.A. Story deserves a fair amount of credit for Do Wah Diddy Diddy taking up real estate in my mind.

    1. 🙂 Your Tahoe trips sound fun. My parents had about the same soundtrack too, along with Simon and Garfunkel. And thank you for that last song you mentioned. It’s stuck in my head now.
