1- Iggy Pop – Passenger

“I am the passenger

I stay under glass

I look through my window so bright

I see the stars come out tonight

I see the bright and hollow sky

Over the city's ripping sky

And everything looks good tonight”


2- Willie Nelson – On the Road Agai

“On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been

Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again

Here we go, on the road again

Like a band of Gypsies we go down the highway”

 

3- The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna be 500 Miles

“But I would walk 500 miles

And I would walk 500 more

Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles

To fall down at your door”

 

4- Radiohead – The Tourist 

“Sometimes I get overcharged

That's when you

See sparks

They ask me where the hell

I'm going?

At a thousand feet per second”

 

5- Coldplay- Paradise

“When she was just a girl she expected the world

But it flew away from her reach and the bullets catch in her teeth

Life goes on, it gets so heavy

The wheel breaks the butterfly every tear a waterfall

In the night the stormy night she'll close her eyes

In the night the stormy night away she'd fly”

 

6- Tracy Chapman – Fast Car

“You got a fast car

Is it fast enough so we can fly away

We gotta make a decision

Leave tonight or live and die this way”

 

7- Red Hot Chili Papers – Road Trippin’

“Road trippin' with my two favorite allies

Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies

It's time to leave this town it's time to steal away

Let's go get lost anywhere in the U.S.A.”

 

8- Daft Punk – Giorgio Moroder

“At that time, in Germany, in '69, '70, they already had discotheques

So I would take my car, would go to a discotheque

Sing maybe thirty minutes

I think I had about seven, eight songs

I would partially sleep in the car

Because I didn't want to drive home”

 

9- Metallica – Wherever I may Roam

“And the earth becomes my throne

I adapt to the unknown

Under wandering stars I've grown

By myself but not alone

I ask no one”

 

10- Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere Over the Rainbow

“Someday, I wish upon a star

Wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where trouble melts like lemon drops

High above the chimney top

That's where you'll find me”
