The Ultimate 22 Song Moving House Playlist

It’s no great revelation to admit that moving house can be tiring, stressful and not so much fun from time to time – even if you’re lucky and your property sale, purchase or rental has gone pretty smoothly. This is why it’s so important to keep calm and see the big picture during all of that chaos.

Packing up your belongings and shipping them off to your new dream home can also be a bit of an emotional time. More often than not you’ll unearth a lost treasure or have your memory jogged by personal heirlooms you’d forgot even still existed in the back of that cupboard.

We can’t do your packing for you or sort through all those old possessions but we can make the whole experience just that little bit more enjoyable in a different way – providing the soundtrack to your house move!

If there’s one constant the world over it’s that music is one of the best tools for relaxation making it the perfect combination for mixing it up while moving to a new home and keeping those stress and anxiety levels down and smiles on faces all around.

We at Rightmove have put together a playlist of 22 songs to help see you through the packing process and well on your way to that new property – featuring a good mix of emotional slow numbers, rip-roaring anthems and fist-pumping, uplifting tracks to help take that big next step.
