Australia Travel Playlist

As you read this, I’ll be thousands of feet above the ocean on my 14 hour flight to Auckland, New Zealand, followed by a four hour flight to Melbourne, Australia. The next 24 hours are going to be grueling, It’s hard for me to find ways to creatively keep myself occupied on long flights such as this one. Music is what keeps me going, makes the time fly by and inspires me while I’m traveling on long haul flights.

I have thousands of songs, plenty of playlists, and a lot of new music to choose from, but I wanted to share a few songs that I’m really into at the moment. Keep me company by listening with me and enjoy the following tunes!

1. Mellow Mood – Slightly Stoopid

This song exudes happiness, summer days and the good life. I can’t help but smile when I hear this song, and feel like everything is going to be a-okay.

2. Where Will You Be? – Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons has been the soundtrack for my last 24 hours in LA. This song in particular resonated with me and my upcoming travels.

3. Radioactive – Imagine Dragons

I was only recently introduced to this band, but I immediately took a liking to their sound..and this song is about the zombie apocalypse, how could it not be good? This song reminds me of sunny days driving around Southern California.

4. Rescue Song (RAC Remix) – Mr. Little Jeans

My roommate introduced me to this song on my way to the train station yesterday. It has such a fluid and calming sound, good for any long flight.

5. Ta DoLeuer – Camille

I love the sound of French, and I love the uniqueness of this song. Just addicting and creative enough to keep me hooked.

6. Ride – Lana Del Rey

I’m a little obsessed with Lana del Rey, but for good reason. I love her vision not only in terms of her music and lyrics, but also with the incredible stories she tells through her videos.

7. Cups – Anna Kendrick

This song is basically my theme song for my trip, and Pitch Perfect is a huge guilty pleasure of mine.

8. Time to Pretend – MGMT

Although a bit more on the depressing side, I can’t help but adore this song. I find it so real at this time in my life, and my reasons for wanting to take a break from the “guided” path that has been laid out for me since I was young.

9. Undisclosed Desires РMuse 

Muse = epic.

10. Promise – Ben Howard

Sigh. Ben Howard basically takes everything I’ve felt and puts it into music. I especially like this song because of how gorgeously it sits with me.
