List Rules Songs with

Successful musicians spend a lot of time on the road, so it's only natural that they write songs about their constant moving and experiences away from home. This is a ranked list of all songs about traveling, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "travel" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about traveling the world as a subject or theme. A few of these tracks are about modes of transportation, while others are simply about traveling, whether it's a cruise on the ocean or a hike across the country.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the traveling songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
