FAVORITE TRAVEL SONG: Red Hot Chili Peppers – Road Trippin’

Video

Road trippin’ with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It’s time to leave this town
It’s time to steal away
Let’s go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

Let’s go get lost
Let’s go get lost
Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkle light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun

*Red Hot Chili Peppers always amaze me with their eccentric songs. They swayed me from love so high in I Could Die For You to the sultry Californication. And so, when I listen to Road Trippin’, I always feel like I am going on a road trip. Somewhere, someday with somebody worth a trip.

FAVORITE TRAVEL SONG: Beirut and Florence & the Machine – Postcards from Italy

Video

The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had, had to go
Never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
At those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

– Beirut

*the song belonged to Beirut; featuring Florence & the Machine- mashed up brilliantly. Beirut musics are unique and have this taste of traveling in it. It is a hybrid of local songs and ukulele and indie. Most of their songs represent a place, some places or all of the places they can think of. Go figure!

Favorite travel song: Gogol Bordello – Wonderlust King

Video

“I stay on the run
Let me out
Let me be gone
In the world’s beat up road sign
I saw new history of time…
New history of time..

I traveled the world
Looking for understanding
Of the times that we live in
Hunting and gathering first hand information
Challenging definitions of sin

I traveled the world
Looking for lovers
Of the ultimate beauty
But never settled in
I’m Wonderlust King!

And presidents
And billionaires
And generals
They’ll never know
What I have owned!
What I have owned…
I’m a wonderlust king!”

-Gogol Bordello

*Gogol Bordello is one of my most favorite band. They are just hillarious and talented. Wonderlust King is amongst the many songs that inspired me to travel. I love this videoclip mainly because of the maps. Hope it suits your ears too 🙂
