12 Songs That You Must Have In Your Playlist While Travelling

 In Uncategorized

A music playlist defines your personality. You can tell a lot about a person just by looking at their Spotify and the kind of music they like and have in their playlist. The music can also depend on people’s mood and the curent situtaioin they are dealing with. 

A good playlist is essential to carry on with your chaotic life and is a lifesaver when you are taking a long road trip or even if you are flying.

Imagine you are on a road trip with your friends or the love of your life, and you plug in your earphones, play your favourite road trip playlist, close your eyes and reach a completely different dimension, one full of unimaginable scenarios.

One of my friends, who is a trip captain and takes regular trips to Ladakh and Spiti Valley, once told me that during his trips, he plays his personal travel playlist, and the tourists love them. I thought that was just Prashant’s way of bragging, but then he introduced me to his playlist and boy, I was stunned. 

I will share the list of songs from his playlist and mine so you can have these songs as well and enjoy your journey to the fullest.

Illahi- Ye Jawani Hai Diwani


You cannot just travel and not have Illahi in your playlist. It is the ultimate travel song. This is a must-have song in your playlist, especially if you plan to go to Manali. It takes you to the top of the cliff where Deepika and Ranbir were standing when Deepika realised that she had fallen for the guy.

Party In The USA


If you were a Hannah Montana fan, then there is no way that you haven’t heard this song already. Back in the early 2000s, Hannah Montana was a sensation and the most popular TV show at the time, and Miley Cyrus was becoming quite popular; her album Party in the USA was released and sold many copies at that time. The music is quite catchy, so I am sure you are going to like it. 

Country Road


Country Roaaaaad…. Take Me Home! Aaaah! The song is absolutely lovely. Once John Denver starts with “Almost Heaven”, you will realise he is not just talking about the country roads but the song itself. So put this in your playlist ASAP!

Cheap Thrills


“Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight!” Correct, because we have this fantastic song and listening to it would be so much fun. Cheap Thrills is one of the songs that almost every 90s kid had in their playlist back then when it was released. 

The Journey Song


Piku, as out of the box as the movie is, so are the songs from this movie. The journey song is a melody to the ears. As the Hindi blends with Bengali, the song becomes more beautiful than ever. It’s not just the journey song, but also all the songs in this movie are absolutely fantastic.

When We Feel Young


Sometimes, Spotify introduces songs that are absolutely a gem for you. So one day, I was listening to some random songs on my Spotify, and I came across this gem of a song called “When We Feel Young” from the album When Chai Met Toast. This song will not only be an upgrade to your playlist but also make tremendous Insta music for your next Instagram story.



You may not have even noticed, but once you carefully listen to the lyrics of this song, you will understand the intensity of it. The Song is from the movie Lucknow Central. Well, the movie may not have been so popular, and the song remained an underrated one. The song is a soulful journal of the prison inmates and their journey. So check out this song and give this song the due credit it deserves. 



How could you travel without having Prateek Kuhad in your playlist? Isn’t that a crime here?

Prateek Kuhad, with his soulful voice, has introduced his masterpiece Saansein from the movie Karwaan featuring the very talented actor late Irfan Khan. The entire movie is on a road trip, and Sansein is probably the best among other travel songs in this movie.



Have you heard a song that you can listen to on a loop for hours without getting bored, not even a bit? Yes, we all have, right? Musafir by Arjit Anand is a song that will linger in your soul for years to come. The soft music, the very touching lyrics, the melody dissolving in your ears. The song is beyond words can describe. You have to check this one out and thank me later. 

60 Years Of Bollywood by Scoop Whoop


If you are in the mood to dance while you are on your bus or traveller, then you should have 60 years of Bollywood in your playlist, for it is going to make you groove. This is actually a mashup of all the incredible songs that have been released over the span of 60 years in Bollywood and these songs were a gem during their time, and in the mashup, you’ll love them even more. 

Laari Chooti


The Local Train was probably introduced to hit our nostalgic part of the brain. I don’t think, I have to explain why this song is an absolute masterpiece, because you know that already, don’t you?

Yeh Meri Kahani


The God of music Atif Aslam once randomly sang a song Ye Meri Kahani, I heard it back when I was in 6th grade, and I have been crushing over him since then. This song will take you back to your childhood when you had a Walkman, a borrowed earphone, and you were listening to this song on a loop. This song has a special place in my heart, for it takes me back to the good times. You might wonder, how is this a journey song, well this song will definitely take you back on your own journey.
