7 Songs to Relax to while Driving

Driving Songs

Driving can be a very stressful task, especially with the traffic condition of the Philippines and disregard for road courtesy. Sometimes, you’d want something that will take the edge off, like music that’s relaxing and comfortable when you drive; anything but the monotonous engine sound through the car’s muffler. Perhaps a melody that’ll keep you calm, not rush? Here are 7 songs that’ll keep you stress-free when you’re on the road.

• Breezin’ by George Benson

The sound of Benson’s clean electric guitar, funky rhythm, and orchestra arrangement in the background guarantees that smooth drive that ever driver longs for.

• Any song from Swing Out Sister

This 80’s pop group from the UK has songs with a tinge of funk and R&B, but they’re still fun to listen to. Not too loud or not too soft. They’re just right. We’d recommend their Live At The Jazz Café album.

• Sweet Soul Revue by Pizzicato 5

The sound of this group’s well-known song makes one feel unnaturally happy, no matter the circumstance. Maybe that’s why this song left a good mark with listeners.

• S ‘Wonderful by Diana Krall

Krall’s voice will lull you to a serene state of mind. This record will remind you that driving is “…s ‘wonderful…” and “…s ‘awfully nice”. Just don’t fall asleep at the steering wheel.

• Alphabetical by Phoenix

Here’s something a little more…contemporary. This subdued ditty is a breath of fresh air. Keep yourself from closing your eyes and thinking of happy thoughts when driving along to this song.

• Skinny Love by Bon Iver

Let this acoustic song soak up all your stress as you drive along the highway.

• Any song from Norah Jones

Granted, the instrumental arrangement of her songs is like taking a mild sedative aurally, but Norah’s voice shines through most of her records, which is kind of the point anyways.
