Favorite travel songs?

Asked by bluish (473 points ) 3 months ago

You know, the stranger-among-strangers, me-and-my-thoughts, going-to-lots-of-places kinda songs. Like Iggy Pop’s Passenger, or the happy summertime stuff like Rockaway Beach by the Ramones. Or anything.
So, what are your favorite “travel songs” and why? :)

Going to California
Led Zeppelin

It has a dream-like, ethereal quality that reminds me of road trips through the desert.

@cookieman Awesome… :) (through the desert, um… what about Horse With No Name? America)

Two of Us by The Beatles
Walking by The Dodos
Man Named Truth by Monsters of Folk

Most of my road trip music is not actually about travelling, though. Too many songs to list here!

I have separate playlists for being on my motorcycle or in my car. My car music is more mellow.

Good grief! We missed “The Promised Land” by Elvis!
