I'm moving. Anyone have any song selections?

Asked by chad (694 points ) February 6th, 2008

In a few weeks two of my friends and myself are moving into a new (not really) house, and I thought it would be fun to create a big playlist to jam, and rock-out to while we get the place set up, painted, and officially moved into. I’d really appreciate any fun, funky, awesome, energetic, and just plain cool music that you guys like and would reccomend, in order to make the event as fun and really just plain memorable as possible. Thanks!

“Car Radio” by Spoon – it’s energetic and funky. I always play it on road trips.

IMO moving and classic rock go hand-in-hand…Proud Mary anyone?

Just reminds me of my youth and rocking out with my folks while painting, cleaning, packing/unpacking, etc.

sndfreQ's avatar

also jam bands, esp. Dave Mathews Band, and also (not a jam band) but Tom Petty rocks-just feel good stuff :)

Foolaholic's avatar

The Format is a fun band to rock out to. Just about anything on the album Dog Problems will do.

chaosrob's avatar

Tom Petty’s entire “Pack Up The Plantation” album would be excellent for this. Good road music, good work music.
