I was provided with a Toyota CH-R to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
For almost 9 years I had a long commute. I lived 40 miles from work and spent roughly 45-75 minutes in the car each morning and afternoon. This means a lot of music to help get me through the drive. Throughout the years, my “Current Favorites” Perfect Commute Playlist has grown and evolved. Some songs have stayed on the playlist for years while others came and went in a matter of weeks.
Today I’m sharing my current car favorites with all of you! I hope you enjoy these songs as well.

If you use Spotify, you can listen along to my playlist below.
Earlier this month, I had the chance to check out the new 2018 Toyota CH-R XLE. This is the “Radiant Green Mica R-Code” color (R-Code is the white roof). I got so many compliments on the look and color of this car while I was driving around for the week.
I enjoyed how the Toyota CH-R allowed me to be taller than a standard car; while maintaining the advantages of a smaller car such as easy parking and tight turning radius. As somebody who spends their life being on the shorter side, I enjoy driving vehicles that are a bit higher off the ground.
This XLE model didn’t have Satellite Radio so I utilized my commute playlist through bluetooth. Since it was all done through my car, I was able to still use the steering wheel controls to control the volume or skip to the next song.
One cool feature of this car is in the design, all throughout the car are diamond shapes – buttons, impressions in the ceiling, door handles, and more.
If you are looking for a new car, check out the CH-R and enjoy your commute. Also make sure to also try out my playlist during your commute!

What a great playlist for a longer commute! :) Music is the only thing that kept my sanity when I lived in a larger city & had to drive during rush hour, lol.
