Songs for the Perfect Summer Drive

July 28th, 2020 by

Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to roll your car windows down, open the sunroof, and cruise to some killer tunes on the road. Here at Hebert’s Town and Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Shreveport, we thought long and hard about some great music to electrify your drive this summer, and we’ve compiled a small list of what we believe to be the start of a hot summertime playlist. Let’s press play and blaze down the road!

UPTOWN FUNK by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars: This song really does have that summer vibe and we’d challenge anyone to try and not move your body a little once the chorus kicks in. It’s a modern funk classic with a summer groove. 

“SUMMERTIME” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince: Once upon a time before DC movies, Will Smith could lay down some spit. This quintessential summer jam really does recall memories of hazy nights gone by, and the lyrics totally spell out an ideal summer day filled with fun, barbecues, parties, and good times with friends.

ALL STAR by Smash Mouth: You probably remember this song from the animated movie Shrek as our favorite ogre bounces out of his swamp’s porta-potty. Whatever the case, Smash Mouth’s biggest song is ideal for summer cruising. It’s just so upbeat and bouncy, with a sing-along chorus that demands participation! Are you all-star or ogre enough to sing-a-long?

I GOTTA FEELING by The Black Eyed Peas: Heck yeah, this is exactly the kind of upbeat, positive, and impossible-to-ignore track to get you pumped for a night of fun at the end of your journey. We dare you to listen to this without looking forward to nights out, parties, and whatever good things you’ve got going on for your summer.

SINGLE LADIES (Put a Ring on It) by Beyoncé: Either female or male, cat or dog, from Venus or Mars, you can’t help but feel the beat and groove of this awesome song! Just listen to it and imagine yourself driving, nodding your head with your friends as you all travel to get some waves and sun. Even if you’re not a Beyonce fan, it’s hard not to sing along or at least do the “Wuh-Oh-Oh!” parts with a little left-hand gesture.

It was a lot of fun to share some of our favorite summer jams that are great to travel to. We hope this helps you with songs to add to your playlist. We’re sure you will not be able to stop dancing while driving or riding in your car!
