The Ultimate Travel Playlist – Songs Picked Just For You

Travelling is so much fun, and you can make this experience even more enjoyable with the help of a collection of songs. Music has the ability to relax and soothe us, change our states of mind, and summon recollections. Also, for some voyagers, music is firmly connected to travel. It can assist us with understanding individuals and culture of a spot, separate language boundaries, and burn certain minutes into our recollections for eternity.

In this travel guide, we are going to provide you with a couple of easy listening songs for your travel playlist.

Add These Songs to Your Audio Player’s Playlist

We have included a couple of songs which you can add to your portable media player’s playlist for entertainment during your flight trip.

Here is a list of quite many songs along with a verse or chorus of each song’s lyrics to have you also sing along.

Take the train from Casablanca going south

And baby, you’d better believe

I’m back, back in the New York groove

Saw the ghost of Elvis

On Union Avenue

Followed him up to the gates of Graceland

Then I watched him walk right through

Waiting for the King

Down in the Jungle Room

When I was walking in Memphis

I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale

Walking in Memphis

But do I really feel the way I feel?

Down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you to

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never have
