Okay, so I'm going away this weekend, and I want some songs for the lonnnnnnnnng busride I've got. And, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? Beatles, non Beatles, solo or not, old, new, whatever you got! Thanks!

I listen to a lot of Nirvana, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, etc. on car trips. Avoid Radiohead if you don't want to fall asleep a-hard-days-night-george-10. Other than the Beatles, my obsession is '80s pop, so I also listen to '80s dance mixes in the car. Hope this helped….

Outside of the beatles and solo i go thru itunes and dump whatever seems right, Stones, Kylie Minogue, Sheryl Crow (more tracks from her first 3 albums), Bob Dylan, Kendall Payne and random songs by random artists. Simon and Garfunkel, Queen, Buddy Holly are always in there, anything of theirs. Outside of that there is nothing set in stone,

Alongside that i listen to old episodes of bbc comedies eg Just A Minute, The Unbelievable Truth, Hancocks Half Hour. Plus episodes of Fab4Free4All (or FabFourum), podcast discussions of topics beatles and solo free to download from itunes and well worth a listen. Would certainly help to pass the time on a bus trip.

Two bands I love atm are Bombay Bicycle Club and Los Campesinos!.

Idk how big they are over your way, so you might already listen to them; sorry if you do. I think they may have even been discussed on the forum before… I can't remember, but they're both quite chilled and both the lead singers have quite interesting voices. They're the bands I choose if going on long car journeys or train rides, especially at night. Hope it helps-ish!

Where abouts are you off to btw?

I second the recommendations of Bombay Bicycle Club and Stereophonics. Radiohead are very good but probably require multiple listens.

Spirtualized- Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

The xx – xx

PJ Harvey- Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea

Bloc Party- Silent Alarm

Wilco- Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

Anything Jack White has done (particularly Elephant and White Blood Cells with the White Stripes, and Consolers of the Lonely with the Raconteurs).

Fleet Foxes- Helplessness Blues

Golden Silvers- True Romance

R.E.M. – Green

The albums by PJ Harvey, R.E.M., Fleet Foxes and Wilco are really American sounding or are about North America, so I imagine would be really good for a long bus trip across America. The other albums are also excellent.

Never found anyone else into that podcast. Nice to see.
