Switch On And Drive Off: Five Tunes For The Road

Why not create the ultimate car journey with our latest song choices?


If you’re going to be out and about on the road this weekend, you might like something to keep you company.

And we’ve got just the thing. In fact we’ve gathered five songs, with the help of our friends at MSL Ballsbridge, that will have you singing behind the wheel in no time.


Real Love – Tom Odell

Our  favourite thing about the John Lewis Christmas ad (apart from Monty the penguin of course) is this gorgeous cover of a classic Beatles tune. Fill your car with the dulcet tones of Tom Odell and enjoy.

Fidelity by Regina Spektor

She lends her vocals to the super catchy theme song for Orange is The New Black, but we also love her older stuff.

Rock DJ by Robbie Williams

Back when Robbie ruled this charts, this was one of our favourites. And it still sounds pretty good to us.

Homecoming by Kanye West 

Heading home this weekend? This ode to Yeezy’s native city of Chicago with guest vocals from Chris Martin is a great tune to get you in the mood.

Shake It Off by Taylor Swift 

This catchy hit is probably stuck in your head anyway, so why not blast it from the speakers while you take to the open road.
