Road Trip – Name That Tune

Today we are sharing another great game to play for those long rides you might experience in ministry. This one is well known, but rarely played well. We want to make Name That Tune a success for you!

Before I became a Christian, one of my buddies in High School tried to reach out to me by telling me that Christian music was really good. To prove his point, he put in a CD of Petra… yes… that Petra. If you don’t know who they are, count yourself lucky.

Fortunately, their is a lot of great music in that is centered around our faith today. This game might be a great way of introducing some of your students to some of it.

PREP TIME– 5-15 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– iPhone & Playlist

GAME TIME– 10-20 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– Anyone in your vehicle


Before you leave for your trip, take 10 or 20 minutes to throw together a playlist or find one with well known songs. You can use popular Christian songs, mainstream classics or even do themed songs like Disney (name the song title, movie or character – or all three).

You should have at least 20-30 songs selected and then you can have your PASSENGER (NOT YOU!!!) play through the songs for you while you’re driving.

Award points for naming the song (or close to the title) plus bonus points for the band as well. Whoever tallies the highest score at the end is the master of music!


1. This is certainly a great game for the road, but it also works in a group setting. You can even play a song and once it gets to the chorus, stop the music and see if they can finish the lyrics.

2. Have a student organize the game for you and just check over the list before to make sure it’s good. This saves you a lot of time and it gets them involved in it as well.
