Top 10 Road Tripping Songs for Moving Interstate

After the Brisbane removalists hit the highway, it’s time to load the car and join the convoy. It’s a long drive interstate, so be prepared with some boredom-busting music. Move-To quizzed our team of removalists for the best driving songs to stretch your vocal chords and keep you entertained for the long haul ahead:

1. 500 Miles, The Proclaimers
It made no. 1 on the Australian ARIA Charts in 1989 and has been beating out of jukeboxes ever since. There’s not a diehard karaoke star that hasn’t sung this song at least once.

2. Shut Up and Drive, Rihanna
This assertive jingle from Rih Rih reached gold ARIA status for shipping over 35,000 copies. If it’s good enough for the Wreck it Ralph soundtrack, it’s good enough for a road trip!

 3. Hit the Road Jack, Ray Charles
Coming in at #387 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, no Brisbane removalist drive is complete without the toe-boppin’ sounds of the sixties.

4. Highway to Hell, ACDC
There’s nothing like classic Aussie rock to raise the roof and unite passengers in an air guitar play-off. *We strongly advise drivers keep hands on the wheel at all times.

5. King of the Road, Roger Miller
Released in 1965, this country hit has been covered by artists too numerous to name, but nobody does it quite like Rog.

6. This is the Beginning, Boy
This melodic number recounts the tale of moving to a new city, unpacking boxes and hanging posters to make your house a home; perfect for moving interstate!

7. Ventura Highway, America
You could listen to the 1972 hit by America from their Homecoming album, but you may as well download the whole album – you won’t be disappointed!

8. Life is a highway, Tom Cochrane
You may remember this song from such events as high school graduation. It never gets old and should only be listened to full-blast, windows down.

9. The Distance, Cake
‘80s babies will appreciate this tune from the album Fashion Nugget. It tells the tale of a driving race in which one lone competitor continues on after the competition is won in a demonstration of pure determination; not unlike the stamina required to move house.

10. Every day is a Winding Road, Cheryl Crowe
Another 90s classic highlighting the unpredictable twists and turns on the road called Life. Easy listening, it’s a road trip must-have for an interstate move.
