Road trips are a quintessentially Canadian thing! Our country is so enormous, it presents the perfect opportunity to pile in car with the kids and head across province to visit Aunt Mabel in Timmins, or take in the serene beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands. To make a road trip successful, you need snacks, games and of course…music.

Here are the 5 greatest albums to listen to while hitting the road!


Michael Jackson – Thriller

Packing for your next road trip?  Don’t forget “Thriller”!  When Michael Jackson created this album, he was inspired to create one where every song was hit…and hits they were!  So roll down the windows and turn up the volume on some of the world’s most famous songs.  They’ll have you using your hand as a mic and your steering wheel as a drum, guaranteed!


Taylor Swift – 1989

Road trip with Taylor Swift?  Yes please!  ‘Shake off’ your troubles and take carpool karaoke to the next level with a family sing-along with the kids to “1989”!  We know you know all the words.   Make your road trip a memorable one with an album the entire family can enjoy.


Madonna – The Immaculate Collection

Music is good for the heart and soul, and a road trip wouldn’t be complete without Madonna!  One of the greatest albums, The Immaculate Collection, includes fifteen of her biggest hits up to 1990.  So hit shuffle and get your air microphone ready….trust us, you’ll know EVERY. SINGLE. SONG!
