Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard (?).

Play in the Sun/we're on Vacation - Handy Manny

Let's Get it Started by the Black Eyed Peas- is our personal favourite for playing in the car when we depart on a holiday

Paul,

Can you define what is meant by "travel songs?"

Is it songs about travel, or songs to travel by? Seems like it would make a difference.

I guess I could look it up on CNN for that matter.....still would be interested.

Thanks,

OK, answered my own question by clicking on the link.

I would like to offer the following as well:

Theme from Rt. 66 - Nelson Riddle

Wabash Cannonball - Roy Acuff and others; any number of other train related songs

You Belong to me - Jo Stafford and later the Duprees ("see the pyramids...)

Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffet; I just put this here because everytime I hear it I am transported to a pool deck where a pool band is playing that song....

I am sure we will see a ton of others as people see this topic.....

Thanks,

...and one more:

Far Away Places - Bing Crosby and a host of others


Boy, do I have the itch to go...and Friday we will ! One week on the Riviera Maya...I'd name the resort, but am not sure it's allowable.

Thanks,

Not a bad list, but got to say I'm partial to Springsteen anyway. I know it isn't travel, but I've always loved Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea. I think it became one of my favorites as a teen and always made me think about cruises.
