Music is a big part of our lives and there’s a good reason why many of us take an iPod with us when we travel. Music can transport us back to a specific time and place that we associate with that song such as home, a great night out, a certain city, loved ones or particular experiences – all whilst abroad (maybe on an overcrowded bus or 12 hour flight!) Ever heard that song that reminds you of someone or somewhere? Might not be a loved one; maybe a friend, a passing stranger or the beaches of the Mediterranean.

There are different types of songs that can be great for travelling. It’s not just songs that are literally about travelling, but songs that capture that feeling of freedom and adventure or maybe about courage and taking a chance. Some of these songs are referring to a place, some about actual travelling and some that are just about a good time that get you pumped. There are songs that don’t name a certain place, but the feeling you get from that song is so exact you have no doubt you’ve been where the singer was.

Music helps us connect to others, it can break down language barriers with locals who might not speak our language but can feel the rhythm and fellow travellers who might share our taste in music. Certain songs incorporate a desire to go somewhere new, meet new people or to travel simply for the thrill of it. In the three minutes a song plays for, it’s lyrics can completely change the way we feel, think and act. Suddenly we can be inspired to get out of bed, earn some cash, book a flight and put yourself out there.

Simply, what inspires us to go travelling is what we live for so I present my 101 greatest travel tunes that capture the essence of travelling, so go ahead sit back, pump up volume and let the music take you around the world. Who knows where these songs may take you.
