Top 10 Travel Songs
Oh, I've had such fun with a new tool for creating playlists, from Playlist.com. I searched high and wide for a list of the top 10 travel songs, but I could not find exactly what I was looking for - most people had songs of PLACE, but not of TRAVEL. So I created my own playlist of my favorite (and new favorites) songs about traveling the world.
As one who has traveled around the world, the journey is so very important - much more so than the goal. Would you like some songs to accompany Your Journey? And, do you have any favorite travel songs you would like to share?
Here's my list of top 10 travel songs
1) Come Fly with Me - Frank Sinatra
Need I say more? He's the original!
2) Wonderful world - Louis Armstrong
Not a travel song, per se, but more of an ode to the world. As any world traveler knows, the beauty that you find everywhere makes life and travel worth it!
3) 3 Little Birds - Bob Marley
Yes, the master of a song about smoothing the way through troubles. Travel without troubles is an oxymoron. 'nuff said...
4) Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
Who among us hasn't longed (or done) a fast roadtrip, in a fast car? Yep.
5) To Be Gone - Anna Ternheim
A poignant look at the wish to just BE GONE.
6) Alex on the Spot - Hans Zimmer and will.i.am
Our daughter's favorite song on this playlist - upbeat, and exciting!
7) Long and Winding Road - the Beatles
Any playlist about travel without this song in it isn't really a playlist about travel, is it?
8) See the World - Gomez
A sweet paeon to thinking about where you would like to go.
9) Chandni Chowk to China - Shankar
A fun,international song about heading to China from Old Delhi, India - from the movie, Chandni Chowk to China
10) Home - Michael Buble
My very favorite. Because one of the best parts of travel is coming home.
