Road Trip. 

Wind blowing in through the rolled down windows, more than one packet of chips and random snacks littered all around the car, maybe a beer can wedged between the seats, the long empty highway roads, unending fields on both sides, and a horizon you can't reach. 

And music. Life saving, soul feeding, makes you want to dance or introspect or keep driving on & on sorta music. I mean really, what fun is a road trip if you don't have your music to drive to?

The music played on a road trip has a trajectory: it starts from music that pumps you up, dance numbers, to dhinchak songs, to romantic songs, to soft music, to songs which make you reflect on your whole god damn life. 

Whatever the stage of road trip you are in, here are some recommendations that you must consider adding to your road trip playlist, seriously.
