This was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do – how do you successfully pare down an expansive library of music into a bite size sampling of travel tunes? Here’s the result – I tried to include a little bit of everything in the hopes that everyone would be able to find at least one song they enjoyed. All of these songs and artists are played at least once while I am traveling – whether it’s by car, train, plane, or boat. Enjoy!
1. Everybody’s on the Run – Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Not only a great opening song to a great album this song is also a great opening anthem for any adventure.
