5 Camping Songs for My Generation

My mom's fire pit. :)

I love the classic roadtrip songs my mother would sing with us. "Boom-dee-ada", "Kumbaya", etc.

However, being 19 years old and having friends that didn't grow up with these songs, I've decided to put together a list of songs that we would all know-- in light of a camping trip we'll be taking in a few days! :)

1. "The Campfire Song Song"- Spongebob Squarepants
This song is hilarious and we love singing Patrick's part! It's a lot of fun to sing it fast and do the "OH, YEAHHH!!" at the end as well, hehe.~

2. "We Are Young"- F.U.N.
A pretty campy song to begin with, this song has become incredibly popular among my generation. Who wouldn't want to shout "TONIGHT, WE ARE YOUNG!" around a campfire and under the stars? :)
Though we'll try not to "set the world on fire" with our makeshift fire.

3. "Fireflies"- Owl City
What better than singing about the beautiful creatures floating in the distance?

4. "Mean"- Taylor Swift
A little twang is good when you're in the woods surrounded by good friends!

5. "Lights"- Ellie Goulding (OR Boyce Avenue)
Boyce Avenue has an amazing (and slower, acoustic) cover of this song.

"Bad Moon"- Creedence Clearwater Revival
I felt like this would be an awesome song for under a big, bright moon! :) But not many people my age know it, so, alas, it is a bonus.
