thursday 13

This week: 13 albums you like to listen to on road trips. I know I’ve done a Mix Tape Monday playlist, but now I’m looking for whole albums.

1. DC Talk, Jesus Freak
2. Waterdeep, Heart Attack Time Machine (especially for night driving)
3. The Frames,
4. Patty Griffin, 1000 Kisses
5. U2, Joshua Tree (there is nothing like going through all that farmland in east Texas with “In God’s Country” blaring)
6. Simon & Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits
7. Punch Brothers, Punch
8. Ben Folds Five, Whatever and Ever Amen
9. Wilco, A Ghost is Born
10. Andrew Osenga, Photographs
11. Derek Webb, The Ringing Bell
12. Bruce Springsteen, The Rising
13. Any one of my Broadway soundtracks–no joke. If you’ve never belted showtunes at the top of your lungs in the middle of nowhere, you’re missing out on an experience.
