Travelin’ Tunes…

I was thinking about how many popular songs (and some not-so-popular ones) center around traveling—often a specific location, sometimes the journey itself.  I decided to compile a list of my “Top 10” favorites—which wasn’t as simple as I first thought it would be.  I ended up with an interesting mix of old and not-quite-so-old songs that cross genre lines and musical styles.  I couldn’t help but notice that many of the selections pre-date my existence!  Good music has no expiration date!  🙂  Oh, and I ended up with a tad more than ten…

  1. Ramblin’ Fever – Merle Haggard
  2. Georgia On My Mind – Ray Charles (or Michael Bolton, or Michael Buble)
  3. I’ve Been Everywhere – Johnny Cash
  4. Never Been to Spain – Elvis Presley
  5. Kokomo – The Beach Boys
  6. Traveling Man – Rick Nelson
  7. King of the Road – Roger Miller
  8. On the Road Again – Anybody but Willie Nelson…ha!
  9. Promised Land – Elvis Presley
  10. Vacation – The Go-Gos

Bonus Tracks:

  • Walking to New Orleans – Fats Domino
  • Take Me Home Country Roads – John Denver
  • What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

Okay, this has got to stop somewhere…  What are some of the tunes that make you want to grab your suitcase and hit the road?
