The countdown has officially begun for sweater weather, road trips, and long weekend escapades! As we watch winter slowly make its way into our part of the world (and strangely, even into our lives), it’s the perfect time for travel in India or even exotic locations; the weather being not too hot, nor too cold, but just right. For those joyous travels, we bring you the ultimate list of some of the best vacation songs you need to curate for your next holiday destination with your group of friends!
Yes, this definitely had to feature this high on our list because, let’s face it, you’re already singing the song in your head as you read this! Catchy, upbeat and a total joyfest; this Arijit Singh earworm is a definite ‘YES!’ on your list.
An oldie, but a tough contender on this list especially for your girl besties out on the open road, the Spice Girls never disappoint. If anything, you’re going to stop right in the middle of the road and dance with your girls, because you want to “make it last forever; friendship never ends!”

No list would be complete without a mention of this song, from a movie that inspired countless road trips (be it even the failed Goa plans), and eternal promises of friendship that would last forever. This is how you maintain friendships, people!

What more could you ask for, on the perfect vacation?

It’s been ten years since Aditya and Geet gave us absolute relationship goals, and the soundtrack to their journey is one that we still hold dear to our hearts. Shahid and Kareena’s chemistry, coupled with Shaan’s soulful voice, gives this song a special place on our playlist and in our travels!
Another classic that was reinvented in the hit musical Mamma Mia, ABBA belongs more to the generation before us, but that doesn’t stop the beauty of this song to make its way into every woman’s young and carefree heart back when she was ‘young and sweet; only seventeen!’
