The Rob’s Makes His 12-Hour Trip Home Tolerable with His 2013 Holiday Roadtrip Playlist

You might notice that around the holidays, we play the Worst of the Rob’s Radio Show. That’s because we all take the week off to see our families. My family lives in Philadelphia, so while the birds are flying south, I drive north.

Every time I drive home, someone makes the comment, “That must be a horrible trip to make.” In all fairness, I am in the car for over 12 hours and for most people that would be torturous but for me, I’m doing what I would be doing normally. I listen to music, talk to friends and check out radio stations. It’s also an opportunity to have uninterrupted time to analyze the new CDs I’ve purchased over the past month.

This drive is nothing new to me so I am quite prepared. I’ve picked up some new CDs and there’s also some old favorites in there too. I don’t plug in the iPod and skip around – I listen to each album in its entirety.

I've heard it and it may be the best new album from any artist in the past 10 years.

Prism

Katy Perry
 
 

I did not expect to like her last album as much as a I did. The two songs I've heard from Prism I like a lot and will give this album a chance.

Artpop

Lady Gaga
 
 

I tend to either love her music or HATE her music. For example, I love the new song with R. Kelly, "Do What You Want" but I absolutely can't stand the song "Applause."

Yeezus

Kanye West
 
 

While I didn't know quite what to make of this album at first, I've developed an affection for every song on this album and have listened to it quite more than I have expected to.

Either this or the Blueprint 3 but I promise you a Jay-Z album is on deck for this trip.

Bad

Michael Jackson
 
 

This will be the first album I put in after the sun goes down. This album reminds me of my childhood which is fitting because I'm in route to my childhood home.

Jagged Little Pill

Alanis Morissette
 
 

I always keep this CD handy because I love every song on it.

Hesitation Marks

Nine Inch Nails
 
 

I've already purchased this album but have not listened to it yet. I have heard that it sounds like retro NIN. If that is the case, I'll be very pleased with this album.

I bought this album and listened to it once. It's due for a second play-through.

This was my favorite album when I was in 6th grade.
