After painstakingly putting together a great California road-trip playlist last summer, here is a selection of some of my favourites to inspire or add to your own road-trip playlist. Admittedly some of the tracks are a bit female-centric (with Shania, Carly Rae Jepson and Vanessa Carlton all making an appearance) but fun all the same!
