Ultimate Summer Driving List

I've been tagged by the one that is Distressed Housewife to join in a musical meme of the Ultimate Summer Driving List. Not the easiest of tasks because I feel there are so many great tracks that I could add to this list but then you would be reading this post forever.

My music taste is very mixed, I like everything from pop, to rock, from dance to indie. Over the years my favourite artists have changed, just like the posters on my bedroom walls.

Everyone else seems to be sticking with 12 songs, I've decided to go with a mix of old and new, so without further ado, turn up the volume and enjoy!!

1) Paramore - Misery Business
I am a huge fan of paramore and this single is what made me love them in the first place.

2) Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - Can't hold us
This song has been a big favourite for many people this year, it can't fail at getting you up and dancing in my opinion.

3) Foo Fighters - Everlong
This is my all time favourite band and with so many songs it was hard picking just one. I have to admit I prefer the accoustic version.

4) McFly - Star girl
Now for any of my readers that listened to Chris Moyles on Radio 1 you will know why I heart this song. Every friday on the Chris Moyles show it was McFly day and this song had me dancing around like a loon every week.

5) Chase & Status - Lost and not found
I was truly gutted to miss seeing them in Ibiza this year, tune!!!!!

6) Oasis - Some might say
Now what's a tracklist without a bit of Oasis. Actually the song that I love the most of theirs is the masterplan but I thought it was a bit down beat so this was my second choice.

7) Eminem - The real slim shady
Yes I was one those people that was extremely obssessed with this man, I had his pictures all over my wall and I knew all of the lyrics :)

8) Rudimental - Not giving in
This track is on my running playlist, always manages to keep me going.

9) House of pain - Jump around
This song I would count as a classic, it does indeed make you get up and jump around!!

10) Kasabian - Underdog
Now I am picking this track for Daddy Hazelden as obviously he would be in the car with me. We have been to see this band twice and even the kids love this song.

11) Tinie Tempah - Passout
Not really sure why I picked this but when scrolling through my iTunes, it just seemed to call to me.

12) Maroon 5 - Moves like jagger
There was a time when this song seemed to be played on repeat but it just never gets old.

So there we have it, a little view into what my music collection is like, I think I may go and put this play list onto a CD now!!

I am now going to tag @OutnumberedMum, @loopyrach, @FamilyFever, @SThurley49, @SuperBusyMum and @chanson2010 to create their own Ultimate Summer Driving List.



  1. Love it, fabulous list. So many great artists and the list of songs is really 'atmospheric', if that makes sense? I can just imagine driving along to these. Great post xx

    1. Thanks for tagging me, I really enjoyed writing this :)

  2. Just like my iPod, tracks go from tinie tempah to tiffany! got to love a bit of variety! x

    1. Yes!!! don't want to be stuck listening to the same old song over and over x

  3. What a great idea! I think the car is the only place I really get to listen to music now! (Well 'proper' music that I have chosen rather than nursery rhymes ha ha)

    1. haha yes see in my house I am stuck with one direction and jls :)

  4. Just seen you have tagged me in - off to compile my own list now! :-)

  5. Good selection, you've reminded me that Jaime has set me this challenge too #magicmoments

    1. Loved this challenge, it was nice going back through my songs and listening to songs that I hadn't heard in a while x

  6. i am so with you on Slim Shady!! thanks for linking up with #PoCoLo x

  7. Great list. Moves Like Jagger is my jam!! Although I should probably be really embarrassed that I just referred to a song as 'my jam'

    *Off to find my credibility*

    Hopping over from #pocolo

  8. Great list, although I don't know if I'm showig my age or how completely out of touch I am, but there a couple there that I've never heard of :) #PoCoLo

    1. Lol I feel like that when the kids talk about their music!!! :)
