Music can take you away from your troubles and worries but sometimes it can take you away to an actual place. Today’s theme is music that’s about or from another place, maybe a specific city or country or a bar, maybe it’s World Music that transports you to another culture.

So keep your passport and frequent flier card handy, off we go to travel around the country and the world.

Allow me to begin in the US, working our way west to east then going around the globe:

I Love LA – Randy Newman

Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan

Sweet Home Chicago – Eric Clapton & Buddy Guy

Ohio – CSNY

New York, New York – Frank Sinatra

London Calling – The Clash

San Tropez – Pink Floyd

China Girl – David Bowie

And to complete the circle:

Going To California – Led Zeppelin

Your turn now, our bags are packed, take us away!
