Finding your travel playlist or song
The songs on this site have been categorised according to regions of the World. For songs that have a general travel feel without a specific destination, we've added them to The Ultimate travel playlist. On occasions, the songs may appear in multiple playlists. For example, 'Hold Tight London' a travel song about London is also in the Europe section, while 'Better Be Home Soon' by Crowded House is included in The Ultimate Playlist.

What is Music For Travel?
For anyone who has travelled, music is something that can take them back to their adventures or help pass the time on a long journey. At other times, music is about adding to the travel experience. Everyone has their own musical tastes and their own view on what makes a great travel playlist or song. This site is not about judgements in musical tastes - although, like anyone else, we will inevitably make a few.
We've put together each travel playlist so that anyone heading out into the World can have a collection music about travel to accompany their adventures. Here's what we've found: by playing certain songs only when travelling you will link the music to that time. Then you can bring back those holiday memories anytime by playing the travel playlist again.
For many people, some songs don't even need to have a travel theme in order to be reminded a foreign place: you could have a heard a song a million times in pubs throughout in Australia or while backpacking across Europe. In the end, it's your own tastes and experiences that will determine what you include on your own playlists, but the travel songs listed on this site will give you a some inspiration.
