It is necessary to occupy your mind during a long-haul flight, particularly when you are undertaking trips in excess of 10 hours. Listening to music represents a great way to pass the time during these flights, so long as you create a suitable playlist for the occasion!
Now while your taste in music may differ from the next person’s, there are some classic playlist favourite that are ideal for long-haul travel! Here are some of the top tracks you should add to your travel playlist today:
Not only was this song the last British entry to win the Eurovision Song Contest, but it is also boasts one of the most upbeat melodies that you could ever imagine. An ultimate, feel-good favourite, it evokes memories of sun-kissed beaches and miles of golden coastline, making it particularly appropriate if you are embarking on your summer holiday!
This song represents yet another summer classic, and one that helped to establish American rock band The Lovin’ Spoonful as an internationally-renowned act.
It’s ideal if you’re travelling to a long haul destination such as Tampa or similar locations in the US, it conjures up images of sunlit American highways and exotic getaways like Florida, and most importantly you could listen to the tune numerous times without ever getting bored of it.
It’s time for a huge dose of cheese now, in the form of British pop classic Y Viva Espana. Sung by Sylvia, the song topped the charts in 1974 and sold more than one million copies, while its lyrics and annoyingly catchy tune encapsulated everything that the Brits loved about Spain as a holiday destination. Above all else, the song is good fun and will put you in a playful mood ahead of your travels.
If you are travelling on a long-haul flight, it makes sense to play hauntingly good tunes that are a reasonable length. This is where the Oasis classic Champagne Supernova enters the fray, as it remains the bands’ most accomplished tune and one that fully embodies the much-loved era of Britpop.
If nothing else, the instrumental is truly uplifting and memorable, and will put you in the right frame of mind whether you are heading out or returning home.
