KillgoreTrout On April - 27 - 2013

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

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    KT and Sherlock, and everybody else, I just watched an amazing film “Searching For Sugar Man”. It won the Academy Award this year for Best Documentary. If you haven’t seen it, you should. Especially you, KT. I know you will love it. Here is the titled song which I think might fit with today’s theme:


    And here is the Academy Award being presented:


    And here is the whole sound track:


    Sherlock, you will like the film, has a lot of researching in action!

    • Thanks Sally, I’d love to check it out. Did you happen to see this on Netflix?

      • SallyT says:

        KT, no I don’t think it is on Netflix yet. You can see the trailer on Amazon but I don’t think you can stream it from there either just yet. I got it from a different site I belong to out of Australia. They seem to get many before the others. There is a lot about it on the internet but don’t read it because it will spoil the mystery of the documentary. My husband really enjoyed it. That is why I am sure you will too because you are both music fans. If you want the other site I belong to, have AdLib to give you my email address and I will tell you.
