Road trips are a quintessentially Canadian thing! Our country is so enormous, it presents the perfect opportunity to pile in car with the kids and head across province to visit Aunt Mabel in Timmins, or take in the serene beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands. To make a road trip successful, you need snacks, games and of course…music.

Here are the 5 greatest albums to listen to while hitting the road!

ABBA Gold (Greatest Hits)
If you can’t sing along to at least half of Abba’s catalogue, are you even a music fan? Fire up Abba Gold and I guarantee you will be surprised at just how many lyrics you actually know! It’s family friendly too and perfect for screaming “CAN YOU HEAR THE DRUMS FERNANDO????” at the top of your lungs.

Beach Boys – Pet Sounds
Probably the greatest Beach Boys album of all time, and much like ABBA Gold, you’ll be surprised at how many songs you might actually know. From top to bottom, this is one of the most sing-along-able albums you can find. Roll down the windows and crank “Sloop John B”

Lady Gaga – Born This Way
We can argue which of Lady Gaga’s albums is the best, but the answer is this one! With so many genres covered, and the Title Track just being a banger, this HAS to be included in your Road Trip!

Pointer Sisters – Greatest Hits
Yes, the Pointer Sisters. You probably forgot how many hits they had in the 80’s and how enjoyable those hits are to play when you’ve got an open highway in front of you.

Taylor Swift – Red

This album has so much to love about it! From mostly non-auto-tuned singing, to more attitude coming from a former Country music artists, this album will be guaranteed to keep you and your bestie rockin’ down the hiway!
