Moving day is arriving, and you’d better be prepared! You’ve probably thought of most of the things you will need – you’ve checked out all the moving companies, maybe long distance movers if you are relocating out of state, and you may even have hired your moving company already. Perhaps you’ve collected boxes from local stores, stocked up on masking tape and newspapers and splurged on Styrofoam peanuts.
If you are doing some long distance moving, you’ve no doubt done the research on your new location. You’ve checked out the schools and public facilities, maybe made a list of the take out restaurants nearby, and done some reconnaissance work on your new neighbors. If you are moving to New York, you might have ascertained which subway or bus line you’ll be taking to work, and figured out how to get to the nearest landmarks, like Central Park or the Bronx Zoo. But there might be one thing you haven’t yet thought of.
Have you considered what music you’ll be cranking out on moving day?
There’s nothing quite like the right playlist to make the whole day shine, and to give you the extra energy and oomph you’ll need to make it through what could be a long, tiring and even frustrating day at times. We thought you might like some suggestions in this area – some of our favorites, which are sure to put a smile on your face and a glide in your step as you navigate the waters of moving day. After all, while moving companies take care of most of the moving details, chances are your moving company won’t come prepared with a personalized playlist for your special day. And after the packing and loading is done, your long distance moving might be ending with a long car ride – so having the right tunes will be just the thing.
To start with, here are some songs you should definitely consider:
Moving – Supergrass
Theme song to The Jeffersons TV show
Changes – Tupac
Movin’ Out – Billy Joel
House of The Rising Sun – The Animals
Burning Down the House – Talking Heads
Come On Up To The House – Tom Waits
This House Is a Circus – Arctic Monkeys
Back To the Old House – The Smiths
Our House – Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Get Out of My House – Kate Bush
And if you happen to be moving to New York, then here’s a special list for you:
