Summer Road Trip Playlist 2011

Way back in April I received this email:

Nita Stelling has left a new comment on your post "Road Trip Playlist":

Starting out the first few kilometers with Jimi Hendrix or The Rolling Stones is quite priceless. It's as if we're in this vivid scene of an 80s movie where we're about to enter a long highway. So, is there a change of songs for this year's playlist, Jessi?

Well, Nita. I didn't forget about the playlist and I didn't forget about your comment. However, I didn't think the world was ready in April for the release. But now that it's June, I think it's time. So without further ado, here is my Summer Road Trip Playlist 2011. There's something for everyone, whether it's old school Kenny Loggins, or little Willow Smith, so shuffle them to your heart's content! Although last year's was featured around driving, road, and summer songs, this list is full of pure feel-good songs for a top-down, feet-on-the-dash kind of road trip. Don't forget your sunglasses!
