Here is my collection of best all time Songs of Travel, listen, sing along, try to remember, and plan you escape. I will try to update this list, as my world changes, thanks for listening. Andy Graham the

Number 1
Head Carolina, Tails California - Jo Dee Messina


This song is my favorite Travel Song, it ask all the questions, it states are the dreams. There is a desire to escape, there is a desire to share our love and life with each other, however these are dreams, hazy, unclear, vague ideas. Travelers are searching, but the true traveler finally must accept, they have no idea where to search, or how to search, or even what they are searching for, therefore "Flipping a Coin" is just as valuable as planning a trip, both achieve the goals, to escape to the dream.

Number 2
Back in the USSR The Beatles

When the Jet takes off there is this feeling, a moment, the pause when we are both afraid and happy at the same time. When one day you enter a culture where you do not fit in, you know you are a stranger, when you know all the rules were left at home, then you may understand the Beatles, this is my rush, my heart dropping, the never-ending addiction, and I know, "No Risk, No Rush." And the Beatles say it, "Leave the West Behind." I left my home on the ground, I left all of you in the fog below.

Number 3
Bob Segar - Traveling Man

The sadness, the longing, it take energy to leave someone or someplace... I feel a constant bombardment, the constant complain, you are crazy. I feel a constant, never-ending subliminal message being transferred to my brain.
"Your life is not for me." Bob says it, up with the sun, gone with the wind. Yes we are crazy, but feeling the breeze is my freedom.

Number 4
Steve Miller Band - Jet Airliner

Number 5
Alabama - I'm In A Hurry (And Don't Know Why)

The reason why we travel, like a spinning top, we spin out of control.

Number 6
Allman Brothers - Ramblin Man

There is a calling heard by some travelers, there are people that feel they must wander the planet.

Number 7
Jackson Browne & David Lindley - Take It Easy Live 2006

Number 8
500 Miles by Peter Paul and Mary

How do we return home? We are too far away, there is too much water under the bridge.

Number 9
James Taylor - Mexico

How the warmth of the sun makes you forget your stateside foolishness and you never go home.

Number 10
Foghat - Home in my Hand

Home in my Hand, the ultimate freedom, to not owe anyone.

Number 11
Close your Eyes - The Beatles

Number 12
Christopher Cross - Ride like the Wind

Number 13
Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes Jimmy Buffett

ADDED -- Need to Renumber Whenever, Wherever by Shakira

Number 14
Hotel California - The Eagles
New Inserted Song

Number 15
Standing Outside the Fire Garth Brooks


Number 16
My Women from Tokyo - Deep Purple

Truly, Truly, Truly one of the feelings a Man from the USA needs to experience, the deal wanting, the feeling of being wanted, to know a person that does not even speak English is dreaming of loving you. To be loved differently, to be loved without any social pressure to conform. When a girl or man feels being with you is the luckiest thing that ever happened in their life, you will feel warm.

Number 16
California Dreaming - Mamas and Papas

Number 17
On The Road Again Willie Nelson

Number 18
Lynyrd Skynyrd-Free bird

Number 19
Me and Bobby McGee, Janis Joplin

Number 20
Marrakesh Express : Crosby, Stills & Nash 

Young men from America wanted to avoid the Draft to the Vietnam War, therefore many went off traveling, many went down into Morocco because it was cheaper than Europe and easier to just hang out. This is where the Christian world interfaces with the Islamic world and the start of "Marijuana" travelers. People who searched for safe places to either smoke the dope or go crazy.

Number 21
Grateful Dead - Truckin'  

 Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues - (Wanting to leave - Wanting to Travel.)
