That feeling you get when you get out of the car after riding for hours and can finally stick your toes in the sand...

PHC Top 3 - Blog Header Image.png

Happy weekend folks! I hope you are all enjoying some time with friends or family. Perhaps for those of you at the tail end of the summer holidays, you might be hopping in the car to take a drive to the lake for the weekend or a last minute trip to the beach! We've stayed put this summer (photo above circa 2013), so instead I'm taking a mental road trip and sharing some music for the ride as that is our latest @phctop3 contest topic. We're asking you this month to share your absolute favorite top 3 songs to jam out to while traveling!

However, I'm putting a twist on my post this round since myself and the other @phctop3 panel members' picks aren't entered in the contest. I found a way to weave in the latest @steemitbloggers/#powerhousecreatives community contest by bringing @zord189 on my virtual road trip! He charged us with bringing a sweet story or just some good vibes to the table this week. I know he's been really busy with work lately and hasn't had as much time to hang with his Steem pals, so I figure it just might warm his sweet little heart if I dedicate this post to him. I can't say I actually know what type of music he likes, but I hope he'll like some of my favorite tunes. Buckle up my friend, let's go for a ride!

Song Number One

Walk The Moon, "Fixin'"

My Reasons for the Nomination

"Don't even tell me where we are going..." Sounds like some solid lyrics for a fun adventure, right? I have come to really love Walk The Moon in the past few years, so I knew I just had to pick one of their songs as they always get me in a good mood. @dksart and I have seen them live and they are just as great in concert as they are on their albums. I love bands that bring the energy, and these guys definitely do that. This song in particular has a fun vibe in that it doesn't matter where you go, only that you have someone to enjoy the experience with!

Song Number Two

Jimmy Eat World, "A Praise Chorus"

My Reasons for the Nomination

Hands down my favorite band. Pretty much any time I am asked about what music I like, one of their songs is going to come up. We actually just recently saw them in concert, as well, and they played this classic song from one of their most beloved albums. I rarely miss a show when they come to town, and I probably listen to one song or another every day in my daily commute around town. Some awesome lyrics in this one, "I just need to hear a song I know". Of course that's part of the fun of listening to a good playlist while riding in the car--belting out the words as loud as you can without a care in the world! What song would get you to sing out loud on our adventure, @zord189? 😉


Song Number Three

LMFAO, "Sexy and I Know It"

My Reasons for the Nomination

This last one is just downright fun! If it doesn't put a smile on your face then your sense of humor might need a tune-up. Of course when you are sitting in the car for hours on end, you might need a dance break to shake out the legs. Crank this one up for a rest stop party. Plus, this will definitely get you feeling yourself to put on that swimsuit and strut at the beach.

I hope this put a smile on your face my friend! Perhaps some day we'll get a chance to meet up in person, but until then we'll just have as much fun as we can cruising the Steem highway. 😃

Did not know any of the artists, listened to them all, found them fun, keep traveling and enjoying music @plantstoplanks, part of the adventure in life, well done!

Thanks Joan! I wanted to stay true to a few of my favorites, but still pick some of the most upbeat options. If I'm traveling alone I actually sometimes like total quiet in the car, but with friends with you there's no option but to turn up the volume and make it fun!

Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah, wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah do the wiggle yeah.... I'm sexy and I know, do do do do hey I'm sexy and I know it 🎶🕺
Love your choices!!! Especially the last one. I don't think it will ever get old 😁

Haha, that was exactly the response I was hoping for! I went all lovey dovey on our last music challenge, so I figured I'd pick up the pace for this one and have some fun. :)

Always have some fun baby!

I have a car, but it's been way too long since we've gone to the beach. It's about 5 hours to the closest one (other than lakes). Hopefully we'll get a quick trip in before the year is out!

Well, yes!!!! You got it going on, girlfriend!!!

I'm too sexy for my love
Too sexy for my love
Love's going to leave me
I'm too sexy for my shirt
Too sexy for my shirt
So sexy it hurts
And I'm too sexy for Milan
Too sexy for Milan
New York, and Japan
And I'm too sexy for your party
Too sexy for your party
No way I'm disco dancing

Oh, yeah!!!! Shotgun!!!


So much fun! Gotta love some great tunes and the wind in your face as you cruise down the highway. :)

Thanks Jay! This was definitely a fun one to put together and I'm glad everyone else is enjoying my little mini playlist. ;)

Most welcome
I hope you have had a good weekend

What a great post, @plantstoplanks. I'm working on mine which I think is going to be a little retro... Ahem....

Can't wait to see yours Fiona! I'm sure it will be a blast. :)

Only good vibes, this I write dancing, while still listening to your last favorite, excellent selection, and undoubtedly one of the best sensations of life is to put your feet in the fresh sand after a long trip!

Glad I could share some good vibes with you! :)

Thanks for taking us along on your road trip with @zord189 as a passenger! I can totally relate to that top picture and it brings back memories of traveling across the country to end our trip driving up on the beach and wading in the ocean! A marvelous feeling to reach your destination!
Thanks for sharing those tunes too! Something new for me to check out!

Always such a relief when you can stretch out your legs and finally totally relax! It never truly feels like vacation until you actually get to your destination. :) Now I just need to plan another trip soon so I have new pictures instead of ones from 6 years ago, haha!

These are awesome @plantstoplanks! All feel like a celebration.

Thanks @tryskele! Hope to see your entry for the @phctop3 contest soon. :)

LOL @plantstoplanks. Loving all the song choices and thanks for cheering and warming my heart up! All the songs make me wanna take a summer drive out for a roadtrip!

Mission accomplished! I'd be happy to take you along with me on a road trip any day. :)

Gotta make you a mixtape for the roadtrip!

In the meantime you can always let us know your top 3 road trip songs for the @phctop3 theme this month... ;)

Clarity by Jimmy Eat World is one of my favorite albums! Before they hit it big...

Yes! I almost chose "Lucky Denver Mint" as that is one of my favorites of theirs. :)

Such a wonderful song! !BEER 1

Well I don't know these songs, but I love your cover photo 😍

Thanks Lena! I do so hope to get back to any beach soon! It's been too long since feeling that pure joy, haha!

I know what you mean Katie! I hope to go by the lake here soon too. It's is not same as ocean, but very close 😍

Yes Katie! I know exactly that feeling from your first picture haha! It needs to happen every day... 365 days of the year lol! Listening to these fine selections now

I like the happy summery vibes of Fixin, it got me bobbing and took me to the beach. You're right, you don't need to be told where to go, it's all about the journey here right :)

Oh yea Jimmy Eat World. I know their music from a game I used to play a lot called Burnout on the Playstation and there was a lot of mountain driving in that game so I'll always think of digitally driving through the alps whilst blasting their music through the speakers. Great soundtrack!

I already knew track 3 - we're all sexy and we all know it haha! This one came on in a night club in Wellington in New Zealand and the dance floor quickly filled up after a long road trip from Taupo. Floor filler and time to bring the party to get the blood going! Boom!

Logged this my fellow panel pal!
