My Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist

I love road trips and I am always responsible for the music we will be listening to in the car. It drives my husband insane most of the time :) haha. I always sing on the top of my lungs, until I lose my voice. Yes, I am the annoying passenger, who sings every single song :) Oooops...

When I was asked, if I would like to take part in Money Supermarket's Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist competition, I agreed right away. All participants were provided with £20 to spend on their favourite songs and here are my picks: 

1. Rudimental- "Feel The Love" - my current feel good song. Me and my 2 year old son love it. He always dances to it or picks up his toys and dances with them. Too cute.

2. Jason Mraz - "I'm Yours" - This song reminds me of my wedding and honeymoon. We listened to it on repeat and it makes me smile, every time I hear it.

3. Imagine Dragons - "Radioactive" - a current favourite of my husband and my baby boy. They love it and listen to it together all the time. 

4. Rudimental & Ella Eyre - "Waiting All Night" - another Rudimental song I absolutely adore. It makes me happy and puts me in a great mood instantly.

5. - "Bang Bang" - I have been obsessed with this tune, since performed it with Leah McFall on The Voice. It is such a great song!

6. One Direction - "Best Song Ever" - I have a confession. 1D are my guilty pleasure :) haha. Their new song is perfect for summer and very catchy. I even caught my husband singing it :O and he hates 1D :) 

7. Icona Pop (feat Charli XCX) - "I love it" - Omg! I love this song! It is one of those tunes, you can't get out of your head. I love singing it in the car, or while I exercise. 

8. Imagine Dragons -"On Top Of The World" - Another favourite of my husband. It is a proper feel good song and my little boy loves it too :)

9. Robin Thicke - Blurred lines - This song is everywhere and I tried hating it, but... I just can't :) It is soooo catchy!

10. Avicii - Wake Me Up - I love the vocals by Aloe Blacc in this song. His voice is amazing.

I have far too many songs on my playlist, but the ones I mentioned in this post, are my current top 10. Considering the fact, that my favourite band is System Of a Down and I am a big fan of metal and rock... my Summer Playlist is totally random!!! It must be the hot weather... haha :)

  4. I am completely obsessed with 'Bang Bang' too, it is just so catchy!! In my head now..

  5. Such great picks Sandra. I love a bit of One Direction too ever since X Factor. I've always loved them. Always have and always will :) #prouddirectioner. Waiting All Night by Rudimental is playing non stop over here as well. But the one song I'm completely obsessed about? Obsessed by Mariah Carey. Not a new song by any means and it's so random but I can't stop listening and singing along. haha :D

  6. Such amazing songs! I've been listening on repeat the Rudimental - Waiting All Night song, it's incredible and SO catchy! Now I need to go play it again haha :)
