Music Musings: Spotify Playlist to Soothe Summer Travel


With summer comes the urge to just get up and go. Travel is on the minds of those whose vacation days were saved for the sake of soaking up some exotic sun. But getting off to tropical locales and distant destinations isn't so easy for those with a fear of flying. Sure, the end result is worth the trip, but the voyage from point A to B is met with anxiety by at least 25% of adult fliers. While GLAM doesn't boast the remedy for folks with plane fears, we do have some settling sounds that can make your next flight a bit more bearable. The folks at Spotify teamed up Dr. Becky Spelman who curated a list of low-tempo songs from Adele, Bob Marley, and Beyoncé to help you travel with ease. So pack this playlist away with your summer sandals and beach towels, fasten your seat belts, and prepare for lift off.
