I spend a very good part of my day driving in my car by myself, commuting from my house to school, from school to work and from work back home. Although it might seem like the most undesirable situation to be in, I like it.
It takes me about 45-50 minutes to arrive at school but there is nothing like being in your car and blasting the speakers listening to your favorite music. I enjoy songs that I can sing along to at the top of my lungs. If you have ever seen an episode of Carpool Karaoke, that is what I'm talking about.
Here are 21 on my favorite songs, if you are looking for new music to listen to, here's the perfect mix:
