Travel site World Hum has put together a great list of the Top 40 Travel Songs of All Time, and has even gone so far as to track down videos for each of them as well. They also give a little fun fact about each tune, and explain what makes it, in their opinion, a great travel song.
Some of the selections will seem obvious, such as Ramblin’ Man by The Allman Brothers, which kicks the list off at number 40, or Toto’s Africa which lands at number 27. Others might make for a bit more of a surprise, like When I Paint My Masterpiece by Bob Dylan or Roam by the B-52’s. Then or course there are some that I’ve never even heard of. (Travelin’ Prayer by Billy Joel?)
I won’t spoil any of the Top 10, but needless to say, you could make a great playlist for your iPod by choosing songs from this list alone. Some of the song are a bit too “road trip” oriented, but still make for great fun, and the entire list would make a great soundtrack to your next journey.
