  • Music to Keep You Awake Behind the Wheel

    The most common recommendation for music to prevent you from dozing off at the wheel during long drives is to tune in to something you hate, and let the frustration prevent you from nodding off. While this may be a successful tactic, it probably contributes to road rage!

    Ideally, you have a CD player in your vehicle that is MP3 compatible, or a stereo deck that allows you to plug in flash drives or MP3 players. This lets you be fully in control of your music choices and you can create various mixes of your favorite tunes to keep you company - and alert - while you're on the road.

    If you make your own driving mix, make sure the songs you choose are upbeat, well known and make you feel good when you listen to them. This is the best way to stay alert because you'll be enjoying the music too much to fall asleep! Here are some great suggestions for a musical mix to accompany you on your next road trip:

    Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meatloaf
    Fun, Fun, Fun - The Beach Boys
    Start Me Up - The Rolling Stones
    Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
    On the Road Again - Willie Nelson
    I've Been Everywhere - Johnny Cash
    Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
    Life is a Highway- Tom Cochrane
    Free Fallin' - Tom Petty
    I Can't Drive 55 - Sammy Hagar
    The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
    Heads Carolina, Tails California - Jo Dee Messina
    Six Days on the Road - Dave Dudley
    Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
    (Comin' to) America - Neil Diamond
    Papa Loved Mama - Garth Brooks
    Rockin' in the Free World - Neil Young

    The next time you head out on a road trip or long haul, make sure you bring a mix of your favorite toe-tapping tunes with you to keep your head up and your eyes open!
