I’ve almost finished my road trip playlist. It errs heavily on the side of American tunes because my taste in Aussie Indie and Alternative music does not compute with Mr M.

I find that in order to keep the driver and passengers awake they have to at least be able to recognise the songs. Except then I started thinking of all of my favourite Australian songs and maybe it’s slightly more even country-wise than I thought. What’s a road trip without some You Am I and INXS?
