I remembered a certain time when I embarked on a very long journey, my phone was fully charged, I had travel playlists but I didn’t have an earpiece, earphone, ear pod, earbud or whatever people use now to listen to music.

It was such a horrible experience for me as I was confined to looking through the window to look at the bushes and the vast emptiness to wile away time. It was a really tormenting journey.

This experience is what many have experienced and has highlighted the importance of music to enhance the traveling experience.

Research by Kuch and Wollner in On the Move: Principal Components of the Functions and Experiences of Mobile Music Listening gave a detailed reason why people listen to music on the go.

  • As a form of time management, listening to music makes journeys more bearable.
  • For blocking out unwanted noise from external sources, which can also enhance concentration.
  • The music may function as a “boundary demarcator” and listeners create a distance to the surroundings by removing themselves from the environment, which occurs primarily for social segregation.
  • To provide an aesthetic experience” in which the perception of the external world is transformed by a projection of one’s own feelings and thoughts. This occurs when music stimulates the imagination of the listener.
  • Listening to music relaxes, makes the listener feel better and may also reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.

The list is endless and we can’t jettison the impact travel playlists have on listeners.

Music for Travel: Tips on Building Your Personalized Travel Playlists

Listening to personal playlists allows a high degree of control over music selection, since listeners may add single tracks to their personalized music compilation and are thus particularly musically engaged.

Follow these tips to create your personalized travel playlists.

  • Start with your favorite songs: You can browse through your favorite songs and add them to your playlist. These songs will reflect your personal style and mood.
  • Mix in some songs from your destination: You can search for artists, genres, or playlists related to the place you are visiting. This will help you immerse yourself in the culture of your destination. For example, if you are traveling to Nigeria, you might want to add some Afrobeat, Highlife, or Fuji music to your playlist.
  • Add some songs that match the theme or purpose of your trip. If you are traveling for business, pleasure, or adventure, you can find songs that suit the occasion. For example, if you are going on a road trip, you might want to add some upbeat, catchy, and sing-along songs to keep you energized and entertained.
  • Spice up your playlist with some new discoveries. You can use Spotify’s personalized playlists, such as Discover Weekly, Release Radar, or Daily Mix, to find new songs that match your taste and preferences.
