Ultimate 80’s Road Trip Playlist

Vehicle provided by Kia

Our summer has been full of epic road trips exploring the world in a beautiful Kia Sorento. One of my favorite features in the Sorento is the Infinity soundsystem that allows me to blast my favorite tunes as loud as I want without the fear of blowing out the speakers. While on our road trips, the radio in our Kia seemed to be always set on the 80’s on 8, and my kid’s and I sung along to countless awesome 80’s songs.

The summer might be over for my two older kids, but my youngest still has a couple more weeks of summer to explore. That means another road trip! Since my older music loving son won’t be with me to share his Pandora playlist or sing together off tune to our favorite songs, he was so sweet to make me a playlist for my upcoming road trip with all the best 80’s songs. The best thing about the Kia Sorento audio system is that my son is able to upload the playlist using UVO and store the songs in the JUKEBOX for me to listen on our upcoming road trip.

When planning your upcoming road trip, create a playlist using these classic 80’s songs, and you’re guaranteed to have a trip to remember.
