Music you need to survive a holiday

When it comes to going on holiday, sometimes you need a little bit of music to help you survive, particularly when family members are irritating you, or some kids around the pool keep splashing your towel. Music can give you the perfect escape to help you relax on your holiday. If you’re travelling to Europe in particular, when renewing your EHIC card, you might need a little bit of music to help get you pumped up while you’re doing tedious jobs such as filling out your EHIC application forms. Fortunately, we put together a list of the music that you need to survive a holiday.

Summer anthems

If you’re going on holiday in the summer, then the summer anthems that are released in the charts every year are a great start. These up-beat, summery tunes are certain to better your mood and put a smile on your face, with catchy hooks that you are certain to find yourself singing along to. If chart music isn’t really your style, then you might want to look to pop punk or light rock, that will give you that happy, I don’t care, attitude that bands like Neck Deep provide regularly. The perfect way to boost your holiday mood is through an upbeat, 4/4 beat, catchy tune. You can’t really go wrong.

Indie tracks

Indie music tends to be quite happy go lucky, and on top of this, it is usually quite easy listening. When you’re on holiday, if you don’t want thunderous bass and guitar riffs in your ears, which a lot of people will do, then turn to Indie music. Some indie tracks are perfect to fall asleep on sun loungers to, and some make you want to get up to the bar and start talking to everyone. Indie music is certain to help you survive a holiday, no matter how irritating your siblings might be.

Sing-along tracks

Feel good sing-a-long tracks are the perfect type to help to boost your mood before and during your holiday. The best way to get an ideal holiday playlist is to make one yourself, and before you know it, you’ll be dancing on the beach. From old songs to new there’s a huge number of great sing-a-long summer tracks, such as Summertime b DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Rockaway Beach by the Ramones, Walking On Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves and Kid Rock All Summer Long. Soon, you’ll be singing at the top of your lungs.

Music you love

Sometimes the best memories can be recollected through music, and you can use music to help you to survive your holiday by using music that you’ve heard on previous holidays. This is a great way to boost your mood, by recalling songs that you loved from other holidays and bringing them to this one. Alternatively, just put together a playlist of your favourite tracks, whether that’s heavy metal like or J-pop, and you will find yourself being able to survive, and better yet, enjoy your holiday even more.
