Top Ten Travel Songs from the Road

This trip has been a tough one between Music and I.  I blame most of it on Apple, who, for the second straight time, has given me a faulty ipod which fails to hold a charge after an hour or so.  Think about going on a 25 hour bus journey and having your ipod die after an hour… this, after you had just fully charged it for 4 hours.  It doesn’t make you a happy person, to say the least.  Luckily, I am quasi-narcoleptic and can pass out anywhere, so sleeping is normally what occurs.  But when I have had music, these are the ten songs that I have continually been going back to when I want to get excited about life, travel, and journeys with uncertain conclusions.  Apologies to Laffy Taffy by D4L and Rumpshaker by Wreckx-N-Effect for just missing the cut:

1.       Sunday – Bloc Partyhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9pf3omyGzw

2.       Lost –Coldplay featuring Jay Z – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJPPR8UcQ_c&feature=related

3.       Where the Streets Have No Name – U2http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWUXcmoPZxw

4.       Crosses – Jose Gonzalez (Tiesto Remix) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MazSvu7OxEw

5.       Free Fallin – Tom Petty version as well as a John Mayer live version – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20Ov0cDPZy8

6.       Baba O’Riley – The Who http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3lVzmtoeZE

7.       Open Your Eyes – Snow Patrol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk1Q9y6VVy0

8.       Sweet Disposition – The Temper Traphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxKjOOR9sPU

9.       Love is Noise – The Vervehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdTzmIgRuQ0

10.   Fake Empire – The National – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KehwyWmXr3U

This is obviously a subjective list, and one that is highly influenced on what I currently have on my ipod, most of which I took from friends.  If you have some other songs that you think I would like, shoot me a comment so I can find a way to “borrow” them on this trip.
