14 Songs To Put On Your Travel Playlist, For Any Travel Situation (because music makes all the difference)

Traveling alone is not easy, nor is traveling alone on a budget. You might know. Music helps. So, I wanna share my travel playlist because music makes all the difference.

It’s all up to me because I am responsible for my own comfort. Therefore, I treat myself to good music.

Over time, I managed to build a special travel playlist, which I always have on my phone.

The funny thing is that I cannot fall asleep to music when I’m in bed or at home. But when I’m traveling, it’s usually noisy, and I have better chances closing my eyes and listening to a familiar playlist. My travel playlist.

Here is a list of 14 of my favorite travel songs to ease falling asleep and set me in a good mood, no matter where I am or where I’m traveling to.

14 Songs to have on your travel playlist

Adele – Million Years Ago (Efe Tekin Remix)

Maná &  Shakira – “Mi Verdad”

Beyoncé – Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z

Klingande – Jubel

Dishwalla – Angels or Devils

Jamie Lawson – Wasn’t Expecting That

ZAYN – iT’s YoU

FlyBoy – Maze (feat. Gavrielle & Jake Newton)

I found this in a mix on youtube. I also love listening to it while running or cycling. In my last official 10k race, this was on repeat!

Matchbox Twenty – Bent

Justin Timberlake – Suit & Tie (Oliver Nelson Remix)

James Blunt – Postcards

Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream

Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings

Perhaps this may seem sad for some, but for me, it’s one of my favorite songs to listen to when I’m waiting for a plane to take off. Although the flight attendant always shouts to take my earbuds off while taking off, apparently, it’s not allowed. I have to say I’m confused about this rule because Ryanair is the only airline with this policy. Other airlines had no problem with me listening to music while taking off.

I’m still trying to figure it out, but meanwhile, this is on my playlist, and I love it.

And I love take-offs. You know that empty stomach feeling?! For me, it’s one of the small things that make life awesome.

And the last song I have to include on this list is the Backpacker song. It’s not a popular song, but I love it, and if you are a backpacker you will too. Just listen to the lyrics, I just love it! Great job dude, whoever you are! And thank you!

Backpacker song

“I might be poor on gold, but I’m rich on life”. This is my shortlist, and it would be hard to pick one favorite. Do you have a favorite to listen to while traveling? Tell me in a comment!
