Travel and music go together like bacon and eggs. The folks at Travel+Leisure magazine recently compiled a list of top 10 songs that relate to travel in general:

1. Motel Blues by Loudon Wainwright III
2. Refuge of the Road by Joni Mitchell
3. Wide Open Road by The Triffids
4. Leaving on a Jet Plane by Peter, Paul and Mary
5. Station Approach by Elbow
6. Traveller’s Tune by Ocean Colour Scene
7. Transit Lounge by Crowded House
8. Every F—ing City by Paul Kelly
9. Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan
10. Roam by The B52s

Here are a few of my favourites (in no particular order):

Take Me Home, Country Road by John Denver
Massachusetts by Bee Gees
Hotel California by The Eagles
The Diamantina Drover by Redgum
One Night In Bangkok by Murray Head
Road To Nowhere by Talking Heads
Where The Streets Have No Name by U2

What’s yours?
