Bringing all the tropical beach vibes with this one, Owen Barney’s hit song “Thank Her For That” is a must have on the vacation list. 

This extremely catchy song talks about a break up in the best way possible. By packing his bags and flying to Punta Cana, Owen’s ex is out of sight, out of mind and he can thank her for that.

Adding this song to the list is a no-brainer. 

It’s all about the feeling of a getaway being in a person rather than a place; and with the uncertainty of travel right now, it’s important to find that similar vacation feeling in someone.

 “Getaway” has the perfect mood for chilling on the beach while watching the sunset. It’s easy to listen to and talks about all the best things on a tropical vacation like pina coladas, sunshine, and palm trees.

4. “Getaway” – Hunter Brothers

Sticking with the classic vacation vibe, I’m adding another song called “Getaway” to the list.

Hunter Brothers are known for their upbeat, summery songs and this one sure feels like a sunny departure is coming soon.

And even if they’re not physically going away, they sing about their getaway being in a salty little sweet kiss with their lover.

2. “Good Day to Get Gone” – Jason Blaine

"Go With Me" by Jason Blaine Interview

I’m throwing it all the way back to 2008 with this Jason Blaine hit. The title “Good Day to Get Gone,” speaks for itself.

This song is timeless and offers the perfect vibe for just packing up the car, filling up the tank, and getting outta here; which is such a mood for everyone right now.

For the final song of the list, I’m changing it up a bit. “Our Days Are Numbered,” speaks more about making the best of the last few days of a vacation and wishing they had more time. 

This Canadian duo sings about all the things they still want to do within the last day they have together.

The chorus is a countdown which fits perfect with the title and the mood of the song; and the lyrics really make you feel like you’re there in their shoes and don’t want to leave.
