Well hell. I started writing this post a week ago, and it seems to have been lost. Hmmm… and I am running out of internet time. Ok – well I was going to post my travel mix, my “I’m coming home to SF/ CA” mix, and a packing list, but due to time constraints, I think it’ll just have to be the travel mix. I’ll try to do the packing list when I’m at home and unpacking.
Oh my god – Kaiser Chiefs, Oh my god – Mark Ronson ft. Lily Allen (these two obviously also work well in the I’m coming home category), Take it easy – Eagles, End of the line – Traveling Wilburys, The Way – Fastball, Runaway – iio (I must have a remix – I can’t find the version I like online), Run, baby, run – Garbage, America – Simon and Garfunkle, Road Trippin’ – Red Hot Chili Peppers, Roam – B-52s, Stratford on Guy – Liz Phair, Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen, Mowbray Kaap – Freshlyground, Ramblin Man – Allman brothers, Fast Car – Tracy Chapman, Runaway – Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, City of New Orleans – Arlo Guthrie, Learn to Fly – Foo Fighters (also good for going home), No particular place to go – Chuck Berry, Free – Martinis, I’ve been everywhere – Rolf Harris, Everyday is a winding road – Sheryl Crow, Truckin’ – Greatful Dead, Long Way Home – Supertramp, Every picture tells a story – Rod Stewart, Far Away Places – Bing Crosby, Beyond the Sea – Bobby Darin, Changes in Latitudes – Jimmy Buffett, Send me on my way – Rusted Root, Holiday – Weezer, Open road song – Eve 6, Vacation – Go-gos, Promised land – Chuck Berry, On the road again – Willie Nelson, Born to be wild – Steppenwolf, I’m like a bird – Nelly Furtado, Move along – the All-American Rejects, Go your own way – the Cranberries, Running on empty – Jackson Brown, Car Song – Elastica, Where the streets have no name – U2, On the road again – Bob Seger, On the road again – Canned heat, There is life outside your apartment – Avenue Q, Get out the map – Indigo girls, Midnight rider – Allman brothers (I also personally love Jessica, since it’s my song, but it’s also good to listen to on long bus trips), Over the hills and far away – Led Zeppelin, Katmadu – Bob Seger, Easy Rider – Jimi Hendrix, Leave Home – the Chemical Brothers, Marrakesh Express – Crosby, Stills and Nash, Come fly with me – Frank Sinatra, Roadrunner – Jonathan Richman, Miles away – Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flower – Moby, Eleanor put your boots on – Franz Ferdinand, Around the World – Red Hot Chili Peppers, Buenos Aires – Evita, Me and Bobby McGee – Janis Joplin, Desert Rose – Sting, Island in the Sun – Weezer, Santa Fe – RENT.
