Travel Songs

I wanted to create a list of new travel songs for slideshow, those songs about travel or inspires travel or just a song that we can listen to while we travel.Listening to music on the move always helps to pass time and put you in the mood, and even if the song's associations with travel are extremely remote, the songs I've picked seem to fit in best every time I fly somewhere.

Here are some great travel songs to turn on:
Favorite travel songs while on a trip
1. Norah Jones: Don't Know Why
Almost certainly the best song she's ever done, soft, gentle, and melodic, this is one of the most relaxing tunes of all time.
2. Cream: Sunshine of Your Love
3. The Clash: Should I Stay or Should I Go
4. The Beach Boys: Wouldn't It Be Nice
5. Jimi Hendrix: All along the Watchtower
6. The Beatles: A Day in the Life
7.Bob Marley: Three Little Birds
8. U2: The City of Blinding Lights
It subconsciously reminds you of be about to touch down onto a towering city.
9. The Libertines: What became of the Likely Lads
10. t.A.T.u: Not Gonna Get Us
A brilliant "flying" song, particularly for those who feel that by going on holiday, they're running away from some invisible force.
