“And the hits just keep on coming” …Travel industry leader Global Connections, Inc. (GCI) has shared Global Discovery Vacations members favorite road trip play lists that range from classics to indie rock.
According to Corey Thibodeaux, online content manager for GCI, “Music is one of those art forms that permeates every aspect of our lives from entertainment to exercise to ambiance. And travel is no stranger to music, with many artists drawing inspirations from their time on the road or in memories of home. We started sharing some of our staff favorites and members were inspired to send in their own favorites. We rewarded some of our member contributions with a set of Global head phones.”
Global musical picks included Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man,” The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” Lyndsay Buckingham’s “Holiday Road” and Johnny Cash doing “I’ve Been Everywhere” to name a few.
Other suggestions from the Global staff for great tunes to hit the road were: Red Hot Chile Peppers – “Around the World,” OneRepublic’s “Good Life,” Lissie’s “Wild West” and Mumford and Sons’ “Hopeless Wanderer.”
“Our entries were all over the map, figuratively and literally,” said Corey. “Global member’s play lists included artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Buffet, Don Williams, The Beach Boys and Alice Cooper. Quite eclectic!”
Member engagement contests and social media participation are sources of pride for GCI. The musical suggestions sent by members were filled with their enthusiasm for vacationing and traveling with Global. The social media team was flooded with messages such as these throughout the Road Trip Play List promotion:
“On a recent three-day road trip, I had Alice Cooper, Kiss, Rob Zombie and The Doors playing to navigate the two lanes of trucks, other cars and beautiful scenery from Michigan to Texas.”

Zac Brown Band songs make me want to head to the beach with Global Discovery Vacations:
‘Wishin’ I was knee deep in the water somewhere!
Got the blue sky, breeze blowing wind through my hair, only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair.
Mind on a permanent vacation,
The ocean is my only medication
Wishing my condition ain’t ever gonna go away.’
I only travel to places with water. Heading to Cape Cod in October with GDV.
– Laura K.
“With our big family, we drive to most of Global Discovery Vacations destinations. Some of our favorites are ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling,’ ‘Shake It Off,’ ‘Lost Boy,’ ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun.’ They gear us up for all the fun!”
– Dean R.
“Our members are a great bunch of people and we love finding out more about who they are, what they like doing on vacation and what they listen to,” says Corey. The Play List promotion was one of our more popular events and we’ll add this to our list of ongoing programs.”
