Top 10 Songs For Your Moving Day Playlist

Oct 31, 2015

Nothing gets you moving quite like music! We all have a playlist for different aspects of our lifes from the gym to the shower, and moving is no exception. Packing up all your belongings and relocating them is a daunting task for anyone, but nothing keeps you motivated like the words of your favorite artists. Whether you are packing your moving boxes, loading your moving truck or driving it, crank up the tunes to help the time go by in style. U-Haul team members were asked for their top moving songs, and the top 10 songs made our team’s Moving Day Playlist below!

 Top Moving Song Playlist1. I Will Survive- Gloria Gaynor
“At first I was afraid, I was petrified…”
2. I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)- The Proclaimers
“I would walk 500 miles, and walk 500 more…”
3. I Like to Move It- Madagascar Soundtrack
“You like to move it, move it…”
4. Home- Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

6. American Boy- Estelle and Kanye West

10. California- Phantom Planets

Everyone has their own taste in music and your Moving Day Playlist may differ, but songs relating to moving and traveling never steer you in the wrong direction. It can also double as a timer because it shows the total amount of songs and duration of time the playlist lasts. If you have a certain goal in mind as to how long you would like your move to take, fill your playlist with songs that will last that time. Use the 10 song above to start your Moving Day Playlist!
