Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root
The catchy, uplifting Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root constantly gets me singing along.
This is another 1990s tune, and it might appear familiar because its remained in lots of motion pictures and television programs, consisting of the movie Matilda, iconic television show Party of Five, Ice Age, and, more just recently, the Netflix 2021 television program Maid.
Bobcaygeon by The Tragically Hip.
Like a lot of Hip songs, Bobcaygeon is poetic and the significance of the tune is a bit obscure. It recommendations little town and cottage life in Canada. Bobcaygeon itself is a village in east-central Ontario. Whatever the lyrics imply, the tune itself is normal Hip– lyrical, easy to listen to, and almost anthemic.
Im Gon na Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers.
A classic celebration tune, this song still gets us tapping our toes. While it isnt a travel song per say, it does involve walking 500 miles for love and anybody that has had a long distance relationship can sympathize with driving throughout the nation to be with them.

The title of this song alone marks it as an excellent journey tune.
No one in sight for fifty miles,.
Sleeping fields sigh as I glide across their spines.
, if I could just reach the crest of that hill.
This entire day will topple and out the night will spill.
– Miles From Our Home, Cowboy Junkies.
Me Gustas Tu by Manu Chao.
For something a little various, I like Me Gustas Tu by Manu Chao. Its a memorable recurring Spanish tune with a little French in the chorus and its also a fun method to learn a little Spanish as you travel.
Approximately translated, the opening lines of Me Gustas Tu by Manu Chao start something like this:.
I like planes, I like you.

Ahead by a Century by The Tragically Hip.
I as soon as heard someone say that you do not truly comprehend Canada up until you understand what The Tragically Hip, and their lead singer, Gord Downie, imply to a generations of Canadians. That may be an exaggeration, but not by much.
Understood to Canadians as the Hip, the band is lower known beyond the country, however all 17 of their albums appeared on the Canadian Billboard Charts. Much of their music has a strong Canadian style, weaving in social commentary on oppressions and on notable previous occasions.
Among my fondest Hip memories is walking down our street, and hearing Gord Downies final show with the Hip blasting from almost every television set. Downie later on died of terminal brain cancer, however will forever remain a Canadian icon.
