Your tent is pitched, your fire started, food cooking, it’s quiet, peaceful, and you’ve got Usher’s You Got It Bad stuck in your heard. What’s worse? Oh yeah. You forgot to pack your guitar or ukulele for campfire song time. You can try to accapella it out or you can bust out your iPod and portable speaker set that you remembered to pack.
So what do you put on your mix if you’re planning ahead? Definitely no Usher. Sorry, buddy, you’re amazing, but after singing that chorus for days, I kind of want to punch your sexy abs (for a few good reasons too *wink-wink*).
Everyone has different musical tastes. I love a variety of music...but when it comes to summertime-chillin’-in-the-woods, my rule of thumb is to keep it peppy, but not so poppy.
My mix includes the following artists:
The Black Keys
Jill & Kate
Mumford & Sons
These all mix well together, so I put them in a giant playlist and hit shuffle. Even better is that you can have everyone put a mix together of their favorite tunes and each person gets a chance to have their mix play, especially when wonderfully catchy tunes overtake your mental stability.
Feel free to share what your perfect camping mix would include!
Until next time,
Take care of your hearts & ears.
