Being on a long road trip with your family has its golden moments but when the inevitable happens and there's an argument over who controls the music, it's good to be prepared. The answer to that problem is to create a playlist filled with road trip songs that the whole family will love.

Of course, song choices can be pretty difficult to nail down but there are some things to consider that might make it easier. Looking to your kids' favorite movies for music inspiration is one place to start. You might also sprinkle in pop favorites, depending on their ages, and Disney songs to add to your list of best road trip songs.
