Press play on these summer songs and instantly dial up your cabin’s romance-o-meter
Frankie Valli, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”
Few know the sweet sensation of arrival like campers. But Frankie V knows. Packing the right amount of sticky sweetness and good old-fashioned swing, the best time for this song is when the RV gets put in park.
Sly & the Family Stone, “Hot Fun in the Summertime”
The driving piano rhythm instantly gets you where you need to be. And when the Family Stones’ characteristically big chorus kicks in, you’ll be smack dab in the middle of funk town, population two.
Bryan Adams, “Summer of 69”
This love letter to the young and restless days of old keeps the summer of ’69 alive, even in these roaring 2020s. Just need the right person to share the RV with someone who knows it’s now or never.
Cyndi Lauper, “I Drove All Night”
Setting the mood is all about degrees. You can go slow. Or set the RV on fire. Beware: This track does the latter. If you’re driving all night, this fever might burn you up inside.
Billy Joel, “Just the Way You Are”
Billy Joel just needs someone he can talk to. We get that. Road miles are too long to share in silence. But what we love best is when that lilting sax finishes the job.
Eric Clapton, “Wonderful Tonight”
Clapton’s lyrics here are as memorable as his guitar riffs. The person by your side will feel seen, treasured, and desired. How you capitalize on all that emotion is up to you.
