On the eve of a holiday weekend road trip, I spend some time putting together a playlist that will get us through long empty stretches of road, bad traffic, and sleepiness. Usually that playlist is several hours long and accommodates the whims and wishes of at least four other people. But this year, it’s just me. A welcome change!
While you’re gazing out the window and letting the wind whip your hair about, getting existential, play this. Have some epiphanies in the back seat while you’re at it. We hope your destination has a lot of barbecue.
