Dads Carpool Karaoke

As I prepare for a 5 hour drive to our Christmas holiday destination I started to think about how we could make the journey a little more entertaining & fun.

This years holiday destination we have not been to before – we hired a caravan and purchased a tent for my daughter and her friend. Its looking to be a fun trip along the Murray River in Victoria. I’ve made a list and …yes checked it twice?

  • Extra tent pegs
  • Gas bottle filled
  • 2 decks of cards
  • Eski
  • Camp stove
  • Chargers
  • Torch
  • Beach Towels
  • etc etc

It got me thinking about the 5 hour drive, off the back of the YouTube sensation Carpool Karaoke, I put together some of the kids favorite songs and included some of mine too 🙂 The car trip will take on a whole new vibe.

  • Mariah Carey – All I want for Christmas
  • Passenger – Let her go
  • Katy Perry – Roar
  • Katy Perry – California Gurls
  • Justin Bieber – Where are U now
  • Justin Bieber – Love yourself
  • Justine Bieber – Let me love you
  • Elton John – Your Song
  • Elton John – Candle in the wind
  • Eagles – Hotel California
  • Bruno Mars – 24K Magic
  • Black Eyed Peas – I gotta feeling
  • Beyonce – Halo
  • Beyonce – All the single ladies
  • Bob Marley – No Women no Cry

Now that should keep us busy for a few kilometers 🙂 The trick will be getting the girls to sing along? I’m sure they will warm up when they see Dad ripping a tune! or not? It will be entertaining and worth the memory.

I copied the lyrics from a google site and put them into a word doc, gave it a logo and headline and  bounded enough copies for everyone in the car, so no one will miss out LOL


  1. That’s a great Idea Peter, I think I might just copy that list, I will be visiting Friends I haven’t seen for years and I’m sure they will enjoy it. I’m going to show off some new QuadCopters I have which I reckon the kids will love because they are pretty much indistructable. Whishing you and your Family a very Mery Christmas a a great Holiday. Please take care on the Road and make sure you have a break often.

      Hi Charles
      Thanks for your message. Quadcopters sounds like a lot of fun, I saw them in the shops and thought about one for myself. I like the ones where you can take photos and video from the drone. Glad you liked the dads Carpool Karaoke 🙂 We have already tried it on the way to Mildura and got lots of laughs. Will do it again on way home and video it and will put it on YouTube and show you the link.

      Best wishes for a great 2017.
