Music is one of those beautiful art forms that permeates every aspect of our lives from entertainment, to exercise to ambiance. And travel is no stranger to the music bug, with many artists drawing inspirations from their time on the road or in memories of home.
We’re sure that many of you travel with the help of music, so we’re giving you our favorite classics that should be on everyone’s playlist. Plus, see below for a chance to win a pair of exclusive Global Connections, Inc. headphones!
Willie Nelson – “On the Road Again”
There are few experiences as fulfilling as hopping in a car with family or friends and seeking out of life’s great wonders.
The Allman Brothers Band – “Ramblin’ Man”
Some of us are incapable of idleness.
The Proclaimers – “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”
Another song professing affection, but familiarize yourself with the lyrics and play that on a road trip. You can’t deny its power. Da lat da!
Lindsey Buckingham – “Holiday Road”
Also used as the theme of National Lampoon’s Vacation, this song will have you cruising down the highway to Wally World in no time.
The Go-Go’s – “Vacation”
Though it’s really a love song, the vibe and refrain of “Vacation” sums up most of our Monday mornings.
Johnny Cash – “I’ve Been Everywhere”
One of the greatest songwriting achievements of our time, as it simply lists cities and states. If you’ve been to half of the places Johnny has, you’re truly living.
Simon and Garfunkel – “Homeward Bound”
For some of us, the best trip we’ll ever take is the one back home.
Steppenwolf – “Born to Be Wild”
If the first verse doesn’t get you amped for adventure, nothing will:
“Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way”
U2 – “Where the Streets Have No Name”
Even places you can’t find on a map can leave a lasting impression, as long as you’re with the people you love.
Eddie Money – “Two Tickets to Paradise”
Isn’t that the dream: Your significant other presenting you with an already-paid romantic getaway. You wouldn’t be able to leave fast enough.
