The Ultimate Roadtrip Playlist

Before we had our kids and we were on road trips we would play the band name game. You know, the one where each of you takes turns thinking of as many bands and artists as you can that begin with “A”, and whoever blanks first is the loser, then you move on to “B” and so on, and so on…

Well since we’ve been traveling with the kids, the ipod makes things a whole it easier. So we started playing the ultimate playlist game. We go to “Songs” on the ipod and start with “A” and each person gets to pick one song each for each letter of the alphabet. Lots of times it’s fun just to see which ones the kids pick just ‘cause they like the sound of the name. Here’s what we have so far…
