Thanksgiving week, a friend and I drove across country, hand-delivered some stuff to someone, and turned around and came back. Delaware to L.A. to Delaware ~5600 miles in 6 days. I though you might enjoy the playlist. Unfortunately it’s not in order, but feel free to adjust for your time of day and driving conditions. For example, Autumn’s Grey Solace comes in handy on a foggy morning, and Talking Heads is good for staying awake that last 50 miles to the hotel you booked on your phone.

We played Alice’s Restaurant on Thanksgiving morning, so you might replace it with something appropriate to the time of year.

I just played the one April March song, as a palate cleanser between two heavy-hitters.
