Hmmm..that's a good question, your onto a good one with a few david gray tracks-he's brill!

Umm...i'd prob have at least a couple that are quite personal to me-they'd prob be quite sad.

Damien Rice-Cannon ball is another good track i like, jack johnson-sitting, waiting, wishing/breakdown.

I personaly listen to the words and i suppose different things you associate with personal situations/feelings/thoughts! I really couldnt think at the mo-it'd be quite a fun task to do i think-searching around and hearing old songs and tracks that you hadn't heard of for ages!

Gee--funny you should ask, because I'm putting together a CD for a group that is going to New York in April for a concert.

My picks aside from the trip, though, are:
Born To Fly, Sara Evans
Sweet Home Alabama, Lynnyrd Skynnyrd
Take It Easy, Eagles
American Woman, The Guess Who
Think, Aretha Franklin
Never Been to Spain, Three Dog Night

That's six. Math was never my best subject. ;)

I'm noticing a trend of '70s rock--can anyone tell who got into daddy's eight-track collection? Bwa ha ha ha!

This one is tough... We don't really have travel songs - more like travel CDs. (So, I must go that route in my listing 'cause you can't stop at just one song...)

C'mon, C'mon - Sheryl Crow
Fruitcakes - Jimmy Buffet
Desperado Soundtrack - Various Artists
Equal Rights - Peter Tosh
On How Life Is - Macy Gray

For the sunny mood, probably some Goodshirt, Collective Soul, or the like; stuff that seems to inspire headbanging and/or careless, mic-less "caraoke." 80's rock shall also survive through the dedicated listening of Crowded House/Split Enz/Finn Brothers and such, even if you were born when their songs came out.

Naturally, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Road Tripping" obviously fits.

For long trips, provided you don't need to stay focused on your course, I would go with soothing sounds of The Verve, Sarah McLachlin, Oasis' "Wonderwall"...other artists escape my memory at this moment, but there are heaps of tunes I'd haul along any day.

Couldn't pick five songs, so groups of artists will have to do.

Top 5 travelling songs, they'd have to be songs that keep my head on my shoulders and keep my head going forward. Songs that make you feel courageous i suppose,, Here goes;

On the Road again (Bob Dylan)
Keep on Runnin (Spencer Davis Group)
Sympathy for the devil (Rolling Stones)
Ramblin Boy (Donavon)
At the Bottom of Everything (Bright eyes)

Basically anything off Highway 61 revisited(Bob Dylan) Gets you in the mood to leave town. Check out the lyrics for some of these songs, their also quite funny which is an antidote to missing Home..

Cool,nice topic!:)

I've been trying to think 5 songs but it's really hard to pick 5 so I only got 3 here...

Train- Drops of Jupiter
Kelly Clarkson- Breakaway
Shannon Noll- New Beginning

Gotta think about those 2 and get back to you!

Cheers,Minna
