Our favorite music plays an important role in life. It makes cleaning the house easier, road trips much smoother, and sets the mood for a romantic evening away from the stress of daily life. The right vacation soundtrack will make your beach vacation much more enjoyable. Part of the packing process for your North Myrtle Beach vacation should include a homemade vacation soundtrack of your favorite beach music.
Before you come to the Grand Strand this year, buy a blank tape or CD and record your favorite beach or summertime songs. If you are more techno-savvy, download a custom-made album onto your IPOD. This soundtrack will set a positive mood when driving a long distance or on a cumbersome flight. You’ll be on vacation long before you reach the beach. Carry a portable battery-powered stereo, or your IPOD, to the beach and relax to the vibes of your vacation music.
What do you like to listen to while on vacation, or the trip to the beach? Popular bands and musicians include Jimmy Buffett, The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Kenny Chesney, and the Zac Brown Band. Their laid-back lyrics promote a stress-free, beachy feeling. Of course, there are many summertime songs by various mainstream artists that put you in the center of paradise, including It’s Five O’clock Somewhere, by Alan Jackson. Perhaps you’re more into the regional Beach Music acts such as the Chairman of the Board, Tim Clark Band, Sea Cruz, or Rick Strickland. These bands cater more to the shagging lifestyle and early North Myrtle Beach era. Beach Music still has a huge following along the Grand Strand.
Whatever your personal taste in music, it’s an excellent idea to personalize your vacation sound. You’ll find that it helps with creating those vacation-time memories that you pay so much to enjoy. The best thing about it is that the music takes you to a place that is far removed from work, and in many cases, reality.
