It’s obvious that Wind and I are travel lovers, so when we got married we had a travel themed wedding and made mix-CDs full of our favorite gypsy/ travel/ road trip themed songs for our guests (which is a good idea, btw- if you’re getting married this mix makes a fun gift!) It was also great for us – after our wedding we embarked on a month-long road trip and listened to our vagabond music non-stop.
And so, tried and true, here are our favorite travel songs… because no road trip is complete without music.
(Note: most of these songs are hyperlinked to iTunes so you can purchase them from here.)
2. I’ll Slip Away – Searching for Sugar Man (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) – Check out the fantastic documentary movie about Rodriguez, Searching For Sugarman.
13. Hobo Heaven – King of the Freight Train – Hobo Til I Die is another great one, but it’s not on iTunes.
17. The Wanderer – Karunesh (not on iTunes either, but check out YouTube).
21. Setting Forth – Into the Wild (Music for the Motion Picture) – From the ultimate road warrior movie, Into the Wild
22. Highwayman – Highwayman Super Hits – Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson… this is one of the best collaborative songs of ALL TIME!
