LDR Playlist (Long Distance Relationship Songs)

Here are a list of songs I’ve compiled for a mix cd (after much deliberation and research!) that all feature long distance relationships. Tried to stick to upbeat, happy songs! *’s = my faves 🙂


1. Come Back, Be Here – Taylor Swift*
2. I Want Crazy – Hunter Hayes*
3. Jet Lag – Simple Plan*
4. Wish You Were Here – Avril Lavigne*
5. Baton Rouge – Garth Brooks
6. Far Away – Nickelback
7. Whenever, Wherever – Shakira
8. Wherever You Will Go – The Calling
9. I Can Wait Forever – Simple Plan
10. The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang (I just love this song. My rationale: they say ‘fedex’ in it… basically an ldr song right?… right??)
11. Here Without You – 3 Doors Down
12. Next to You – the Police
13. Ho Hey – the Lumineers*
14. Stay With You – Goo Goo Dolls
15. Superman – Taylor Swift
16. Wouldn’t it be nice – Beach Boys
17. Cars – Naomi Striemer
18. I Will Wait – Mumford and Sons*

19. Already Home – A Great Big World
20. A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
21. Lucky – Colbie Caillat
22. When You’re Gone – Bryan Adams feat. Melanie C

If you’re interested here is a song I wrote for my long distance boyfriend called “He Wears Combats, She Wears Cowboy Boots”:

    1. Thanks so much, that’s so kind of you to say 🙂

      Glad you’re enjoying my blog! I’m sure he will love whatever you choose to surprise him with. Let me know how it goes


  2. King and Lionheart by Of Monsters and Men isn’t necessarily a ldr song, but it works. So is Song For A Winter’s Night (I like the Gordon Lightfoot version). Also, The Promise by Tracy Chapman makes me cry every single time for how accurate it feels.

    Those are my go-to last songs.

    1. Goodluck! I hope it will be everything you hope for 🙂 It’s a crazy journey but so worth it – just a couple weeks ago we got engaged after nearly 5 wonderful years together! 😀
