This weekend’s music thread is about travel, by air, sea, or land. By plane train or automobile (or cars and trucks). It is about movement, getaways, sort of like Congress trying to get away from furloughed air traffic controllers and the unforeseen inconvenience of their travel plans. It’s amazing how a few stationary hours, sitting in a crowded plane on a hot tarmac can change ones views.

So, lets get moving, truckin or sailing or driving. Post your favorite songs about travel and moving ahead.

Golden Earring – Radar Love

Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly

The 5th Dimension – Up, Up and Away

The Byrds Eight Miles High

Imelda May – How High The Moon

Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen – Hot Rod Lincoln

The Allman Brothers Band – Ramblin’ Man
