The perfect camper van driving sound track? Music to journey to for ever and ever?
We would LOVE to know your favourite camper van and perfect driving tracks.
My huge list has been on my desktop for months and Ive finally got it whittled down to 30 tracks. They are in no particular order and I realise that it’s a mix of feeling up and energised and tracks to chill, driving as the sun going down but……….well hey!
There is huge slab of retro music here (some of these tracks were released before I was born) and I’ve left the wilder side of my listening off the list.
This is Michael’s list, Benjamins will be along shortly……….
