Fancy long road trips? Or cosy train cabin? It is the best feeling when you travel and listen to the finest music. This week we present you a wonderful list of songs compiled especially for travel.
This is a really hard question for Craig and I as we love music. The song which we listened to often whilst planning this 18 month trip is Angus and Julia Stone ‘Big Jet Plane’ but the STERN* remix, big fan of a electro beats to get you moving!
Rusted Root – Send me on my way. I love it and can’t get enough of it. It always puts a smile on my face, and every time I hear the song, I just want to instantly book a trip. While travelling, it gives me a sense of excitement, and happiness, I have no idea how a song can have that effect on me, but it does!
I don’t have a song in particular but I’ve found that every trip I’ve been on has been helped along by a different album each time. My most recent trip to Vietnam and Cambodia was all about Oh Wonder’s new album. Perfect music to listen to while chilling out on the beach or trying to fall asleep on a sleeper bus.
I don’t have one particular travel song. Which songs I listen to depends on my mood, so it can be everything from Coldplay to Guns and Roses. I often listing to the local music as well and I have a few songs and artists which reminds me of certain places e.g. does Ace of Base remind me of a trip to Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia and Waka Waka reminds me of South Africa
I’m surrounded by music all the time (once I somehow forgot to put it on, only to discover an hour later that I was anxious and didn’t know why!), but it means I don’t have a “house cleaning favorite”, “jogging favorite” or a “traveling favorite”. It’s all about the current favorite, actually. On my upcoming trip to Azerbaijan I’ll probably add new Florence + the Machine album to my iPod. Have you heard it yet? I love it!
Hands down, Bollywood’s Gallan Goodiyaan from the movie Dil Dhadakne Do. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is our recharge point in SE Asia for our Bollywood movie marathons. For our entire stay each time, we sit in the Petronas Towers’ blasting A/C catching cheap Bollywood movie after movie with diets consisting only of caramel popcorn.
Every time I hear Ben Howard’s Keep Your Head Up, I am instantly transported back to the best time of my life: living in Vancouver, Canada. The line, “All I was searching for was me,” totally resonates with how I was feeling at the time too.
Probably 500 miles by the Proclaimers. Such a classic, and even if I’m grumpy and jet-lagged it makes me happy. Although it’s hard not to want to sing along which is awkward when I’m alone. DA DA DADA!
I listen to a wide array of musicians whether I’m at home or on the road, but there are a few songs that always make me feel like I need to pack my bags and board a plane: ‘Vamala’ by Champs, ‘Young Blood’ by the Naked and Famous, ‘Whale’ by Matthew Mole and ‘Home’ by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.
Monday Morning by Melanie Fiona. It might not be what the song is about originally, but to me it’s about leaving and about wanting to share the experiences with someone. And that sometimes you have to leave to experience something better.
Experience travels in another way. Put on some music and choose your next adventure:
