  6. Kate

    Drive – shannon noll “that’s what i’m talking bout!!”

  7. Kate

    actually drive probably shouldv’e been an original hitting the road song!!!

  8. We love credence Clearwater revival for road trips, but also boppy stuff are a fave, esp timomatic, Bruno mars and any kind of top 40 songs for Nate especially. Audio books we love hairy mclary, dr Seuss, muddle headed wombat. Hope that helps and safe trip to your new home!

  9. I made an Aussie Artists CD mix for when our friends arrived from the UK 2 years ago, so we put this in the car and driving through the Outback it was so apt, includes Waltzing Matilda, Down Under, Xanadu, Who’ that Girl, Flame Trees, You Shook me all night long, My boomerang won’t come back (technically not an Aussie Artist!) Weather with you, Beds are burning, Don’t Change, You’re the voice, Spinning around, Torn, Untouched, To the moon and back, Electric Blue and Advance Australia Fair. However we have now listened to it so much we are so over those songs and know them off by heart lol 🙂

  10. Leanne Morris

    Agree that Passenger is a special one we listen to, also Bastille, D at sea, Bee Gees, John Denver, Adele, heaps more can’t name them all or you’ll get sick of me. Simon got us onto the first three though and they are really good.

  11. Good to see JBT in there – travelling with teens means that I don’t get much input into what we are listening to, but they all know if they want to get on my good side then put some John Butler on….think that they are pleased we are on limited internet so I can’t watch him play Oceans on youtube 🙂
