For those music lovers who, moreover, spend their lives moving from one place to another, it’s important to carefully organize what will be your travel soundtrack. It almost goes unsaid that there are certain environments that suit a certain kind of music compared to others; to spend the summer in one of the Lisbon apartments or spending a winter in Helsinki, will probably make you feel like listening to different kinds of music.
That is why I think it’s important to be well prepared and to supply yourself with all the music essentials in case you are planning to do a long trip. To make sure that the appropriate music will not be lacking at any time. Remember that there’s nothing easier than loathing a song because of having listened to it too much…
The road songs: These are the ones that are perfect for a road trip, to make you feel like a wild, free animal, you know… just in case you find yourself making your way throughout the vast US or Canada.
The loser songs: These are the sad ones for those sappy moments. Sometimes it’s necessary to be sad, to regain forces afterwards.
The songs of glory: They accompany you in the moments when you really got it (or at least you think you do). You reached the top of that mountain. You survived that night out in the open. The morning when you walk out of someone elses room, smiling like a mad man.
The silly songs: You never know when you’ll have to improvise a party. You’ll never know when you’ll feel the need for dancing foolishness’.
The wildcard song: You need to count on that one special song for whatever happens, will put you in good mood. This would be like your best friend in the form of a song. You know that, although you may have had the worst day in your travels so far, you can come to your apartments in Lisbon or wherever you are staying, put that song on full blast to make the stress and good mood stabilize again to their normal levels.
I have a different kind of music in my phone when I travel, just in case 🙂
