Best "travelling" songs.
 
What are your favourite songs that are about or remind you of travelling ?

What songs really bring back memories of freedom, fun and the romance about being on the road ?

I love a band called "The John Butler Trio". They can really make me think im somewhere else.

This one for example.

YouTube - John Butler Trio - Zebra (Taratata Fr3)

I really urge you to look through his other songs on there. Hes a fantastic guitarist and a total hippy too :D

Definitely Ted's Top Tip

The list is so long....

We saw Alabama 3 a few years ago at a small club in Birmingham UK. In their words, they play 'sweetprettycountryacidhousemusicallnightlong'.

YouTube - Alabama 3 Too sick to pray

The Very Reverend Dr D Wayne Love of the The First Presleyterian Church Of Elvis The Divine (UK) is someone to behold!!

Oh yes! the John Butler Trio are amazing indeed! I live in Suffolk and the love of my life is at uni in Swansea,the track "Words" by the Doves always reminds me of one sad and rainy sunday riding back from Swansea........
Anything by Clutch or Wolfmother are perfect if you're in a hurry!

Hi,

I can think of a few, this reminds me of my time in the middle east - moby runon

This one reminds me of Ras Al Had in Oman, at a critical moment on a windsurfing trip! - We're not gonna make it ...

Dan... :eek3:

Radar love is another Golden Earring favourite that makes my riding rather frantic.

Wide Open Road, by the The Triffids is a classic travel song.

Bob Seger - Roll Me Away

Maybe its just because I saw Bob Seger play at the Bay City Rollair Rink like 38 years ago - or because I know where you'll be 12 hours out of Mackinaw City.

Cake - I will survive

Makes me grin each time I hear it

lorraine 30 Jul 2007 14:32

Dodger, thanks for mentioning Twilight Zone! The early days of MTV.... I'm stuck in Bogota and this brings back such great memories. Really brightened my day.

Of course, there's Sammy Hagar's, I can't drive 55....
