I would have to say Marrakech by ATB. It always reminds me of the Middle East whenever I hear it. Even when I was in Iraq, I would hear that song and just start getting dreamy. LOL not too dreamy though.

sorry breakin the rules but i cant decide;
either "Three little birds" - Bob Marley
or "Do you remember" - Jack Johnson (this song always reminds me of home for some reason), it stops me and makes me think about who I left back home.

I'm going to break the rules (again) too... Since it will be an international offering:

Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World - Johnny Clegg & Savuka (S. Africa)
Clegg makes you believe the world is meant for everyone - because it is.

Baro Foro - Gogol Bordello (Ukraine via NYC)
The members all immigrated from Eastern Europe and came together in New York. They play Gypsy punk but their use of the accordion and traditional Gypsy cadence makes me want to go hunting for a werewolf in Romania.

Dos Gardenias - Buena Vista Social Club (Cuba)
Some day we (Americans) will get a chance to visit Cuba too. This song is going with me on the plane.

La Vie En Rose & Milord - (The Sparrow) Edith Piaf (France)
If I ever get to visit Paris, I envision the streets filled with her voice. She is France for me. (Sorry, couldn't choose between them...)

This CD is only a concept. Actually, it's not even that. It's just something I was thinking of.

We all have our favourite songs, favourite travel songs, etc and I thought it would be a good idea to poll the members and see what song they'd contribute to a travel CD that would have worldwide appeal.

Once I compile the list, I'll send it to Peter and Sam and they can do with it what they wish.

As for me, there are many songs here that I've not heard, so I'll probably download and listen to them for my own enjoyment.

Okay - I just deleted a spammer from this thread, but going back through the posts...

James - did you ever compile that list??? It still could be pretty cool and here's a couple 2-3 more::

New Your State Of Mind - Billy Joel
Back To The Island - Leon Russell
Women Of The World - Mahotella Queens

Hey James - wake up!!!

Non Je Ne Regrette Rien - Edith Piaf
All Along the Watchtower but the Hendrix version
Holiday In Cambodia - Dead Kennedys

Saw the DK's gig on Broadway San Francisco back in 1983.
There were cops outside the venue cradling pump-action shotguns.

Isa - no, I didn't compile that music list. I'd forgotten all about it.

But stay tuned (no pun intended....well, sorta!)

I suppose you hook your ipod up to the stereo system so your friends can hear the music too when they come for a visit? Or, do you just pass the ear buds around?

My ipod sits in it's cradle and I load up the CD changer. Like my archaic electronics.

Cool! Looking forward to your picks!!
Rene's choice is quite entertaining. But, after spending a weekend (a couple of years ago) listening to almost endless Indian hip hop, I'd keep hitting the "skip song" button for that one. Do like the lyric interpretation though . I think they got all the lyrics perfectly.
(Side note: We attended a Sikh wedding which lasted 3 days. Hence the endless hip hop.)

Try some early A.R. Rahman soundtracks, that should calm you down.

I've been doing a music exchange with Ahila, so I am listening to a lot of Indian/Tamil songs the last few months :) (but this subtitled one did come from an English friend here in Madrid.) And of course I hook up the ipod to the stereo! so everybody can enjoy Sun O))), Merzbow and Aaron Dilloway.
