Father's Day Playlist: 8 Road Trip-Worthy Songs

Our ultimate playlist to enjoy on the next road trip you take with your dad – have a listen!

Father’s day comes around once a year and honestly sometimes just thinking of what to get the special men in our lives can be difficult. So, before you reach for that trusty soap-on-a-rope maybe consider sharing a special experience instead. We’ve put together our ultimate playlist to enjoy on the next road trip you take with your dad – have a listen!

1 Elton John – Rocket Man

There is no reality where hitting the high notes together isn’t going to be both challenging and beautiful!

2 Queen – Somebody to Love

Deciding on a track by Queen isn’t easy – but Somebody to Love is iconic and a little bit less predictable than choosing Bohemian Rhapsody.

3 Cat Stevens – Father and Son

This song is full of all the feels – hearing it with your dad with the open road in front of you is bound to make the experience extra special.

4 John Mayer – Daughters

It’s possible that being a Daddy’s girl is unavoidable when you’re raised by a man who has managed to make you feel loved and appreciated – that bond is something worth celebrating every day.

5 Capital Cities – Safe and Sound

Do you know how fun it is to do a little shoulder dance to this funky track? If your dad loves a little dance, he’s bound to share his best moves with this track coming through the speakers.

6 Jay-Z (feat Alicia Keys) – Empire State of Mind

Something about this track makes dads feel really cool, whatever it is, let them have their moment. Even if they are full-on displaying awkward dad moves, you know they’re totally amped about the experience and that’s worth sharing.

7 Arno Carstens – Another Universe

This local favourite feels like a road trip through the Karoo, surrounded by blue skies and the fluffiest white clouds.

8 Freshly Ground –Doo Be Doo

There’s no way to sustain a bad mood when listening to Freshly Ground – it’s possible that you’ve got a memory surrounding this track. It’s a feel-good banger worth hitting repeat on.

Listening to music in a car just sounds better – the experience is enhanced not solely because of the quality of the sound, but also because of the people we get to share them with. Let us know if we’ve missed any of your favourite tracks or if there is one you think your dad would love!
